Alison Hughes

Dear Alison our Friend and Colleague,

In memory of your gracious presence and indomitable spirit, we, the team at Ottawa Fashion Week and Loft Gala—Leslie-Anne Barrett, Megan Peckford, Leah Harper, Payton Kennedy, and I, Bruno Racine—pay tribute to you, our esteemed friend and colleague.

Your remarkable ability to remain composed and unruffled amidst the whirlwind of international designers and the chaos backstage was truly extraordinary. Your selflessness and unwavering positivity served as a beacon of light for us all. You were a gem, radiating warmth and kindness wherever you went.

Your absence is keenly felt, and the void you've left behind is vast. Your talent and grace will forever be etched in our hearts and minds, a constant reminder of the exceptional soul that you were.

Though you may no longer be with us in person, your spirit lives on in the memories we cherish and the legacy you've left behind. We will continue to honor your legacy, drawing inspiration from the incredible person that you were.

Rest in peace, dear Alison. You will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

With fond remembrance, Bruno Racine and Team
