The 10th edition of the Bulles & Tapis Rouge Gala, a fundraising event supporting the mission of the Quebec Lung Association, was held at the Grand Quai of the Old Port of Montréal. The event, hosted by Geneviève Borne, was a chance for the more than 500 attendees to enjoy a fashion show curated by Hans Koechling and featuring the fall-winter 2022 creations of Philippe Dubuc, Denis Gagnon, Marie Saint Pierre, SHAN, Helmer, Hip and Bone, Nadya Toto, Mikael D, Di Carlo Couture, Eliza Faulkner, Angela Mitchell and Alan Anderson.
This celebratory evening was held in support of research for the three million people in Quebec living with a respiratory disease and raised $325,000 for the cause. The glamorous event gave a voice to some of the patients living with illness through the A Look for the Cause section. In addition to sharing their stories, some participated in the fashion show, orchestrated by Hans Koechling.
“They say that ‘Breathing is the greatest pleasure in life’ it is a fundamental pleasure and right that should be granted to everyone, explains Nadya Toto. We are participating in this event to support the Quebec Lung Association and their mission of research, education and prevention of lung disease, with the goal of assisting individuals living with lung disease to fulfill their right to breathe comfortably.”
Now, here is a look at some of the fashion and fun from the Bulles & Tapis Rouge Gala:
