Red was the colour of choice at a special fashion show and celebration at Seabird Island on Saturday, Nov. 16.
Hope fashion designer Linda Kay Peters was featured in Red Road, Red Carpet, Red Dress, at the Seabird Island Band gymnasium, along with Coast Salish artist Ovi Mailhot.
Models were stunning in their red dresses and other creations, and the evening included a fundraiser for the Seabird Island Christmas Hamper program. Guests were invited to also wear red in honour of missing and murdered indigenous women.
Gerald Charlie and the Black Owl Blues performed music and donations of long grain rice and spaghetti sauce were accepted.
Peters was a part of Indiginous Fashion Week in Paris, France earlier this year. She has a connection to the missing and murdered women, and uses her platform as a designer to raise awareness of the issue.
