Did you miss Ottawa Fashion Week? You’re in luck. Tomorrow, February 12, there’s a fab fashion extravaganza—for a good cause! Distinctive Women is holding the fashion show at Shepherd’s Fashion, 145 Train Yard’s Drive, to raise awareness of and funds for mental health. From 6 to 9 p.m., the store will play host to a catwalk spectacular, showcasing its latest fashions.

Guests will enjoy Ontario wine from Vintners’ Selection and treats from Thyme & Again. There will also be some enticing items to take home, thanks to live and silent auctions. Ottawa Senators tickets, spa gift packages, gift baskets, a Southwest Florida condo rental and a canvas print from Valberg Imaging are some of the items up for grabs.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Women for Mental Health Program. This philanthropic program at The Royal brings together like-minded women to inspire conversations and support mental health.
