With so many things to see and do here at the West Coast Women’s Show, it can be hard to know where you should be, and when! Stay tuned to our live blog to check out some of the highlights happening on each of the stages!
Show highlights this year include appearances by Michael Muhney, from The Young & The Restless, Jillian Harris and Wes Hayden, contestants of the Bachelor, best selling author (and wife to Dr. Oz), Lisa Oz, and of course, plenty of action from the 2013 Fire Fighter’s Hall of Fame!
Fire Fighter Chef Show – Kitchen Stage
We kicked off the show with the Fire Fighter Chef show over on the kitchen stage, where Mr. June & Mr. October were cooking up a storm with Fraser Valley’s own Chef Dez! Of course, things got heated while they were prepping for the ingredients for their Thai Chicken Salad, and Mr. June spent most of the demonstration with more than a few buttons missing from his shirt! Good looking, and good in the kitchen, they offered up a few good tips like making sure not to overcook your rice noodles, use sesame oil instead of olive oil for Thai dressings, and keep coconut milk or butter on hand in case your sauce ends up a little too spicy! See it again Saturday at 5:00pm, and Sunday at 1:30pm!
Abbotsford Dance Centre
Opening for the Fashion Forward Fashion Show all weekend, the ladies and young girls from the Abbotsford Dance Centre have some incredible talent!
The Suede Dogs also performed a few jazzy tunes just before the fashion show began!
Fashion Foward Fashion Show
The West Coast Fashion Show isn’t complete without their annual Fashion Forward Fashion Show! Showcasing trendy and stylish outfits for women (and men & children!) of all ages, it’ll make you want to rework your closet… or just go shopping! All outfits are styled from retail outlets within the Seven Oaks Shopping Mall, including Le Chateau, Suzy Sheer, Sirens, Ultima and more! Kiddie outfits seen on the runway can be found at Frog’s Hollow, located in Langley.
And what’s a fashion show in 2012 without a little bit of Gangnam Style?
Calendar Fire Fighters Fashion Show
There wasn’t a whole lot of “fashion” going on with this hotties on stage – but none of the ladies seemed to mind! The main stage area was packed as the 2013 Calendar Fire Fighters strutted their stuff in their official uniforms, turnout gear, and their underwear! Hosted by Ronnie Negus from the Real Housewives of Vancouver, this years’ firemen show was full of laughs, crowd involvement and many happy women! They are on site all weekend selling their calendars to raise money for the Burn Fund another other local charities. Be sure to come by Saturday evening at 7:30pm to check out the 911 Fashion Show.
