Pure Magnolia found five women who have gone through the YWCA Crabtree Corner and have removed themselves from the DTES and are ready to start a new sober living chapter of their life. To applaud their efforts and to make their one final dream come true, Pure Magnolia decided to help them look and feel like a princess on their wedding day.
“A wedding is supposed to be such a special moment for the bride, and I want to make sure she feels beautiful and extremely special on her wedding day,” said Patty Nayel, designer of Pure Magnolia.
Pure Magnolia wants to do what they do best: take the old wedding gowns and upcycle them into custom wedding dresses for the women. They will be debuting these gowns along with their 2014 collection at this intimate charity glala at the Vancouver Aquarium the evening of October 2nd, 2013.
