May 20, 21 & 22: Montreal Plus Fashion Week, Montreal, Quebec

Montréal + Fashion Week is the first bilingual Plus Size Fashion Week, in Quebec!

Montreal + Fashion Week aims to raise self esteem of the plus size woman (often flayed by the fashion industry), by offering various options where style and beauty meet body diversity.

Our goal is to create an event where women can recognized themselves on stage and realize their potential, makes them want to dare a different look or a style, in an atmosphere without judgement.

The 3rd Annual Body Confidence Canada Awards (BCCAs) Toronto, ON September 9, 2015 International Day of Beauty 

11175001_10155555244135613_6205390169076288016_n

Body Confidence Canada Awards (BCCAs) acknowledges Canada-based recipients actively fighting against stereotypes, judgements, policies, and discrimination that attempt to label and discredit marginalized bodies.

Though we are not affiliated, we were so incredibly inspired by the United Kingdom’s Campaign for Body Confidence (2009) and their inaugural UK Body Confidence Awards (2012) that we decided it was high time to bring this gem to Canada! 

Why September 9? September 9 International Day of Beauty was created by the International Committee of Aesthetics and Cosmetology (CIDESCO) and was adopted by the World Congress in 1995.

What better day to celebrate body confidence, fat bodies, curvy bodies, racialized, LGBT, differently able-bodies in the arts, film, fashion, television, social media, business, politics, education, health, community empowerment & activism especially when these bodies have been historically and contemporarily seen as outside the ‘standard’ of a ‘good body.’ We look forward to sharing this wonderful occasion with you!

To nominate yourself or someone else download a PDF or Word application. Please complete, along with reference letters/testimonials and mail a hard copy to Contact Page OR you may e-mail a completed application with reference attachments to BCCAs directly. 

DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS: JULY 1, 2015.
