About Fashion Heals
The annual Fashion Heals in support of SickKids is a vibrant evening event that creatively showcases the accomplishments of the Hospital team while raising funds for The Innovation Grant for Pediatric Cancer Care and Research.
Supporters of Fashion Heals see first hand how their contribution is making an impact on so many young lives. The highlight of the evening is the fashion show, styled by La Closette and featuring SickKids doctors, staff, and patients – past and current. Guests have a chance to hear from our patient ambassador and speak to individuals who have a direct connection to the hospital.
Now in its fourth year, Fashion Heals will be hosted by Toronto Fashion Week as the finale event on February 7th.
Our guests who include Toronto professionals and community leaders, will enjoy a private evening under the Fashion Week Tent in Yorkville Village, mingling over music, food, and beverage while getting inspired by our one-of-a-kind fashion show featuring the SickKids patients and staff as models. Attendees will receive a VIP experience while raising funds for the hospital.
Guests can expect:
- Access to the Toronto Fashion Week experience – Second largest Fashion Week in North America that highlights designer talent in Canada. Community Leaders and Influencers such as Sophie Trudeau, Jessica Mulroney, Meghan Markle have worn clothes created by designers showcasing their new collections at Fashion Week.

- Silent auction including a range of coveted items.
- An enjoyable evening where every dollar spent goes towards a very worthy cause. SickKids uses the funds for equipment and expertise to support and propel their research.
We hope that you will join us on on February 7th, 2018!
