Workshop: How to Dress Like a Gabriolan

This workshop is designed for newcomers to Gabriola Island and also for people who have never been out in public. Participants will learn practical tips for consistently not giving a thought to how you look, no matter where you are.

Here are just a few of the topics to be covered:

-Freedom to bloat (the joy of elastic waist bands).
-Hiding and incorporating food stains into patterned fabrics.
-Anything can be a belt. From ropes to electrical cords to cat leashes. If it holds up your drawers, it’s a belt.
-Mohair vs Cat Hair — they both work.
-Sleep wear vs active wear — why change after a workout? After all, sweat dries.
-Guest at a funeral : How to source pre-owned clothes BEFORE they get to Giro.
-Does this muumuu make me look like I am from Mudge?
-Business in the Front, Party in the Back. 7 ways to rock a mullet.
-Shampoo is a hoax. How to maximize your natural hair oil to look glamourous.

And that’s just the beginning.
