Vancouver's fashion industry is hosting Fashion's Night OUT!, a fashion show and cocktail reception at V Lounge in Yaletown on Tuesday, March 8.
The proceeds from the evening will go to support Out in Schools, a program that brings queer films to local high schools to raise awareness about homophobia and bullying.
Why are fashion and the gay community such a great fit?
Not sure what to wear? Listen to that voice asking, "What would Bruno do?"
You know it's right.

It's red wine season. I know this because the sun goes down by 5pm and there's no better way to whittle away the next 16 hours of darkness than with a sophisticated syrah and some not-so-sophisticated friends.
If you like reds as much as I do, you're going to like the sound of this: some innovative importers have managed to bring an amazing selection of Spanish wines -- from the region made famous by Don Quixote no less -- to BC liquor stores. I went to a tasting by AIS Wine Imports this past Monday at Boneta in Gastown and had a full case of Hispanic panic. It turns out I love Spanish wines almost as much as I love Spanish men. Who knew.
Here's some more good news: these are value-driven wines -- you should be able to find many of them in stores in Vancouver for under $20.
My favourites by far were the 2003 Bodegas Yuntero Selección Reserva
and the 2009 Vitivinos Anunciación Azua

And if you want to taste before you buy, here is a link to tastings happening throughout BC over the next little while.
