Day 2 of Canada Philippine Fashion Week was held at the Thompson Hotel Rooftop and Bar. It was the perfect setting for like-minded fashion lovers to mingle, have a cocktail or two and support a good cause.

p.s. Read on to watch Miss Universe Canada 2013 Riza Santos sing a Whitney Houston hit!

All proceeds from this week-long event benefitted the Kol Hope Fund and World Vision. Kol was CPFW Executive Director/Founder Jeff Rustia's son, a Filipino-Canadian boy, who was born with Trisomy 13, a fatal genetic syndrome. He was diagnosed to live only three months, but lived for 14 years. He passed away on October 9th, 2011, and has left behind an incredible legacy of love, courage and hope. He is the inspiration behind Kol Hope Foundation for Children.

This night's event was called 'Fashion with a Heart', hosted by Liland Insurance.

At the end of the night, we were ready to go! The afterparty had just started but Patrick and I had work early the next morning so we called it a night.
