The opening burlesque show at the Arts and Fashion Week was performed Pastel Supernova, who is also a published model, film and television actor and a teacher for several classes based on developing women’s confidence and grace. Pastel’s choreographic style is a mix of contemporary dance, Latin styles and her own inimitable flavour. In 2012 she founded Love Letters Cabaret, an ensemble of Canada’s top dancers and singers quoted to be “Toronto’s most exciting, edgy and sexually charged dance theatre company.” Pastel recently performed at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, was titled “Best Stage Presence” at Italy’s Como Burlesque Festival and is 2015’s Alternative People’s Choice Awards’ Top Burlesque Performer. Flare Magazine dubbed her one of Canada’s most influential women.
