ABOUT THE EVENT
Heart of Fashion, in support of North York General, is an exclusive event featuring the ultimate fusion of fashion, food, and entertainment.
We will welcome over 500 affluent and diverse guests representing Canada’s top industries. If there is one thread that binds them, it’s their love of community and passion for North York General.
On the evening of the event, guests will walk the red carpet, savour culinary treats, dance on the catwalk and bid on one-of-a-kind auction items. Of course, the main feature will be our world-class fashion show that showcases legendary and upcoming Canadian designers.
All proceeds from Heart of Fashion will go towards the expansion of the Charlotte & Lewis Steinberg Emergency, which sees almost 120,000 patient visits each year and is one of the busiest in the country. This expansion will include a new, dedicated Mental Health Emergency Services Unit to help us best serve the needs of our growing community.
Our Emergency Department saves lives every day, but it’s bursting at the seams and we need more space.With a unique guest experience that’s both elegant and fun, Heart of Fashion 2022 promises to be the best event in our history.
