They’re fun, they’re colourful, they’re cheeky and they’ve become a tradition at Eat to the Beat. Once again our corset models will be on site, adding to the event’s “class with bit of sass” atmosphere. The corsets they wear are created by Canadian designers – many of whom have been affected by breast cancer. It’s our way of affirming life in the midst of our common fight against breast cancer.
