After the madness...

I'm back! Did you miss me!? First things first: I just want to say, my wedding and the honeymoon were absolutely wonderful. This whole last month was a true fairytale come true for me and I promise that you're going to hear all about AND see the pictures very soon and in a very special way! For now though, for my first blog as Mrs. Coco Rocha Conran, I'm going to write about something very special that happened in Toronto just a week before James and I traded our vows. On May 27th I was priveleged to host a little event called:

Actually, it was anything but a small event - It seemed like all of fashionable Cananda came out to support Todd Lynn, Jeanie Becker and myself for an evening for fashion and music. Over 1000 people bought tickets to the show and all the benefits went to a very worthy cause, childrens with cancer. Rather than read me explain any further, have a look at this fun little video made by Fashion Television!


If you still want to learn more, here's an unexpectedly coherent interview I did on Canada AM:


All in all it was a total success. If you missed it, have no fear: next year is already shaping up to be just as fantastic. Go to www.strutforacure.com to find out how you can help make 2011 even better!!!

Thank you so much for the encouragement and the compliments. Hopefully now that you made me have a huge head, I can become more humble soon. goodness!

Seems like it is a very interesting event. I really never have seen runway stuff and don't even look at photos of it. these shots were pretty interesting.
