Have you ever had a “pinch me, is this actually really happening” moment? Well, that was Atlantic Fashion Week for us. It was a surreal, very exciting week, that neither Beck or I will ever forget. When we launched Beck & Boosh Jewelry and Styles in May 2013, our goal was to sell fashionable, affordable jewelry to women. Soon that became selling to men and women, and adding accessories to our line. Before long, we were designing and our own line of exclusive Beck & Boosh pieces was growing by the day. How exciting!! During Atlantic Fashion Week we had the opportunity to show the local fashion world the pieces we had created and stylized. Wow! Can you say, “pinch me”?
For the fashion show, we paired up with Jenn LeBlanc of Rainy Sunday, a fabulous sweater line from St. John’s, Newfoundland. Her sweaters, hats and scarves are stunning, cozy and fashionable. Although you may not traditionally pair sweaters and jewelry, the combo was perfect. Our pieces showed how accessories can make all the difference in an outfit and how jewelry really can be worn for the ‘everyday look’.

Thursday night was the opening night, and for that evening we were sponsors. We gave 200 pairs of earrings in the swag bags, which every attendee received that evening. We also set-up a table for the pop-up shop that took place.
Ready to watch the fashion show on opening night. We were blown away by the designers and their work.
Official sponsors of the night and we had an Ad in the program for both nights! The Peacock Fan Necklace looks amazing on Sara in this picture!
Oh, and did we mention that the Fashion Show was SOLD OUT both nights? Double pinch me!
Beck & Boosh and Rainy Sunday opened the evening on Saturday night, which was crazy exciting! Here is a picture of Beck and I just before we headed back stage:
Backstage make-up and hair! It was madness!

Being a part of Atlantic Fashion Week was truly amazing. Mingling with other designers and witnessing all the talent first hand was mind-blowing! People, we have some MAD talent in Atlantic Canada from designers, to photographers and models! It was an honour to be showcased among them all.
Till 2015 Atlantic Fashion Week,
