We will bring awareness to mental health issues among women, support programs and wellness suggestions to live a more happy and balanced life! Last year's event raised over $15,000 for our local Saint John chapter of the CMHA! The fashion show will feature our new Spring Collection of shoes, sandals and handbags.
