Philanthropist; Fashion Enthusiast. Toronto
A little bit of leather and a whole lot of lace. Nobody does it quite like Suzanne Rogers - a Toronto-based fashion icon who has an impeccable closet. There's closets and then there's Suzanne's closet (fashion porn might be the best way to sum it up). First and foremost, behind the McQueen couture and Jil Sander technicolor must-haves, Rogers uses her knowledge and connections with designers to help raise funds for a range global children's charities. Saying she's a fashion aficionado doesn't do her justice. She's brought stylistic powerhouses to the runways of Canada - having put on two major shows for Canadian eyes: Oscar de la Renta and Marchesa. And the best part? She's managed to raise over one million dollars for charities around the globe - while doing it in her sky-high baby blue YSL pumps nonetheless. And she seems to do it all (with Birkin in hand) while raising three beautiful children. Take note and follow by Mrs. Rogers’ example - we'd love to see more Canadians decked out in Moncler Gamme Rouge during our winters. Not bad for a girl who was born in Elliot Lake, Ontario (and a University of Western Ontario graduate) - GO MUSTANGS! With the help of Rogers, we think she’s able to grab the international focus from London, Milan, Paris, and New York fashion weeks and shine a global spotlight on the runways of Toronto.
