Presented by the Toronto Fashion Academy

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is thrilled to be the charity sponsor of the 2023 International Fashion Encounter in Toronto. It is a unique opportunity to showcase the fashion sense of people living with Crohn’s and colitis and who have ostomies. They will proudly show the world that their ostomy does not define them, it is simply part of their story.

Our seven models include Jess Grossman, Paula Sojoro, Renee Welch, Ginger Sue-Smith, Skylar Turkiewicz and Brad Watson-Davelaar!

Tickets for the event cost $267.58 and can be purchased online on Eventbrite.
