Although the Lower Mainland’s evergreens do not transform into multicoloured groves like they do back East, autumn in this region is still pretty beautiful. It’s a time to dust off the rain boots and pull all your soft sweaters from summer storage as you head out for a walk around Stanley Park with a piping hot beverage, leaves crunching beneath your feet. Speaking of boots and sweaters, it’s also a new season of fashion in stores and on the streets.

Autumn in the Park

On October 2nd Magique Fashions (a local boutique and wardrobe consultant service) will be hosting a fashion show benefiting the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation. Hosted by Urban Rush’s Fiona Forbes, the fashion show and reception will take place at Coyote Creek Golf Course in Surrey. Items from Sarah Pacini, Michael Kors, Elisa Cavaletti will be hitting the runway along with the hottest names in premier denim.

On top of the fashion show itself, there will be entertainment provided by young singing sensation Cole Armour along with tasty canapes and a custom cocktail for participants to sip.

Tickets are available online for $80 and admission also includes a signature charm designed by local jewelry designer Karyn Chopik, exclusively for this event. In addition, ticket holders will receive 15% of their next purchase at Magique Fashions, located at 124-1959 152 Street, Surrey.

If you would like to attend this event, I have two tickets to give away (value $160). Please leave a comment on this post either about fashion or the fall season in order to be entered to win. I will draw one winner, who will be able to bring a guest, on September 24th.

Update The winner of the tickets is Sherrie, have fun!

    Fashion is huge in our home…I have two teenage girls

    They watch the fashion shows on television but have never attended a show..

  4. Parker says:

    I was actually thinking this past weekend about how summer may be ending, which always hurts, but the thing I love most about this change is that I get to wear my boots, with my cute jeans, and that comfy turtleneck sweater that I got from a local designer that I haven’t worn since April! Fashion and Fall just go hand in hand.

  5. Sanaz says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing this fashion show, maybe get inspired to buy a trench coat for the rainy season!

    Best part about fall: my green velvet jacket. Or perhaps my ankle boots. Hard to say!

    Would love to attend! Never been to a fashion show and I have a 14 daughter who is truly excited about getting into the fashion industry! Fall is the best time to get out your boots and long warm coats and shmooze with others! Love the fireplaces on at night, cup of tea, lightening storms and a good read! COZY! Thanks Miss604!

  19. They say animal prints are back in style. I have no problem with this, unless the animal is real fur, or the person sporting it is going for the Cruella de Ville look. My mom used to do both.

  20. The only upsetting part about Fall fashion: Return of the Uggs 3.

  21. Shannon says:

    For the longest time, I turned off my fashion sense because I just didn’t have any time for it.

    Now I am rediscovering and rekindling my love for all things fashion related! Oh how I’ve missed it!

  22. maria says:

    I would love to win!! I love fashion, Michael Kors is one of my fave designers amongst many many others!!!

  23. Michelle Williamson says:

    So excited about this event. Over the last 16 months I’ve lost over 50lbs. I tried on a bunch of my fall/winter clothes yesterday and I have nothing that fits! I’m excited to get a big, stylish new wardrobe!

  24. Lyn says:

    Yes! A fashion show for a good cause, perfect! I’m in and want to take my friend who loves fashion shows more than anyone I know.

  25. Adam says:

    Having purchased Peace Arch Hospital Lottery tickets for years to support the fundraising campaign, it’d be great to attend a public event this fll in support of the amazing work the hospital does. Attending this fall fashion show is a magical colorful event and I think the timing is perfect: before clocks go back and it’s even darker and colder outside.

  26. Yasmin says:

    I just flipped over my wardrobe to Fall… out with the summer dresses and in with chunky sweaters, leather boots, and cute hats. Love!

  27. Kelly Man says:

    The start of Fall season means new clothing lines coming out. I would love to watch a Fashion Show and see some new Stylish CLothes

  28. Vanessa says:

    Fall is my favourite season for fashion. I love this season’s chunky knit sweaters and boots. This fashion show sounds like a fun BFF girls’ night out!

  29. Jewels says:

    who doesn’t like a fashion show?!?! jackets, scarves, sweaters, bring it on!

  30. Kandes says:

    I have only ever been to one Fashion Show and I loved it!! Would love to experience that again!!

  31. Breanna says:

    I have a guilty confession to make. I yearn for Fall all year round. When everyone else is working on bronzing themselves in the sun or doing copious amounts of squats to ensure that they look tight in a bikini, I’m dreaming of knee-high boots and jeans and lush coats and layers and scarves! (oh and perhaps the outrageous costumes that surrounds Halloween) The fashion simply makes me drool. An opportunity to attend a real live fashion show would make my season, let alone my year!

  32. Leah says:

    Since moving to vancouver ive slowly developed an interest in fashion, my friend and I have never been to a fashion show before but we’d love to go. I love the colors of fall and I really enjoy shopping for cute sweaters, boots and scarves…

  33. Kelsey says:

    The fall season is one of my 2 favourite seasons (other being Spring) I love the smell of September and the new fashion trends coming in. I LOVE the new riding boots this year.

  34. Heather says:

    I’m glad to see more & more of these events around town. It’s a great way to help a great cause.

  35. Tiffany says:

    What other season is there for gorgeous warm tones, rainboots, and scarves. I love fall!

  36. Fall-ing in L O V E again , with the colours of nature . . . . and my girl.

  37. Jeaniney says:

    I love fall in the mornings wrapped in a warm blanket while sitting on the patio soaking in the crisp air with a hot cup of coffee and hob nobs for dipping!

  38. Phyllis says:

    The great thing about fall fashion is seeing how people layer different pieces together to create unique looks. Also, sweaters are so comfy.

  39. Stella says:

    I absolutely love fall fashion! Already on the hunt for a weather friendly trench coat (preferably in red) for when it gets colder. ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. michele says:

    nothing beats rainboots, apple cider and snuggling up with a blanket. I love fall! I love Vancouver!
