Self-Determination Runway Fashion Show
Canton's Inaugural All Ages, All Abilities, All Body Types Fashion Show
October 5th, 2019  Canton Cultural Center 

Thank you to everyone who helped plan, organize, support, share the word, attend, model, volunteer, sponsor, buy ads or raffle tickets for our inaugural Self-Determination Runway! The event carried the message that we are stronger TOGETHER!

It could not have been a success without YOU!

Many thanks to our keynote speaker Brian Wagner and Master of Ceremonies Kevin Metz! The models looked amazing thanks to Cady Cugini from Shades Salon leading the volunteer team of hair and makeup artists: Danielle Prince, Destyona Thomas, Melarie Weaver, Alexis Carswell, and several others who jumped in backstage to ensure the models were runway ready!


Fashions were provided by T.J.Maxx (Canton, OH), David’s Bridal, The Attic Resale Shop, Encore Resale Shop and American Commodore Tuxedo and special glass pendant artist JJ Bloemer of Boomwire Glass Studio in Akron.

Special thanks to our collaborating partners: Shades Salon,  YWCA Canton, Beyond Our Boundaries, Stark DD, Faith in Action.
