"Iconic Power" Nominated for Best Public Entertainment Production

We're very pleased to announce that our 2009 Design Competition, "Iconic Power," has been nominated for a Canadian Event Industry Star award for Best Public Entertainment Production.  This is the second year in a row that Art of Fashion's annual show has been nominated.  The 2008 show, "Between the Lines," was a winner!

AOF's own Michelle Planche, President of Paradigm Events, has also been nominated for Event Professional of the Year.

The winners will be announced at an "Oscar style" black-tie gala at Atlantis Pavilions on March 26th.  We're looking forward to the big day, but as the saying goes, it's an honour just to be nominated! 

To see the list of nominees, visit Canadian Event Perspective Magazine here.  You can buy tickets to the award ceremony online here.
