Canada has such a beautiful national flag, but let’s face it, it is nearly impossible to draw the perfect maple leaf. When I received my welcome package from the pageant I was overjoyed to see a category dedicated to a costume/gown/outfit inspired by our beautiful flag. The bold colours of red and white spoke to me and I started sketching some ideas down that came to mind. Naturally, I would never be able to create a magnificent piece of wearable Canadian art by myself so I enlisted the skills of a fabulous up and coming Canadian designer Rebecca Rowe to help with this creation.
Given that the nation will be celebrating Canada 150 this weekend, I met with Rebecca this week to discuss ideas and plan out this outfit. Man is this girl talented! She took my idea and ran with it taking such a creative spin on the initial design. I won’t be telling you exactly what we’re planning (going to be keeping that a surprise until the pageant) but I am so excited to see the finished product because I know whatever she does will be amazing.

Here are some pictures from past collections of Rowes Fashion that I have modelled in Ottawa.
