East Coast Living presents “Dine By Design East,” a dazzling event showcasing design leaders and culinary giants from Canada’s East Coast in a spectacular feast for the senses. The third-annual showcase takes place at a transformed Olympic Community Centre in Halifax. Dine By Design East is a full-bodied experience of food, drink, design and art. Funds raised support design education at NSCAD University through the Amber Harkins Memorial Scholarship Fund. Amber was a former editor of East Coast Living who passed away from cancer in 2012 at age 40. In its first two years, the event has raised over $40,000 in proceeds for design education. Two full tuition scholarships to NSCAD University design students have been awarded so far.

The event sees 10 design teams transform blank spaces into dramatic dining rooms. Ten chefs create unique menus inspired by each space. Celebrate their fabulous creations at our Gala evening on Thursday, October 1, 2015. The expanded list of events includes a lunchtime fashion show on Friday, October 2 with fashion leaders and emerging designers, weekend design and culinary sessions October 3 and 4 with celebrity and award-winning chefs and decorators.
