British darling designer, Mary Katrantzou came to The Room at the Bay. Since The Room has arrived in Vancouver, the Bay has been producing some of the best fashion events in the city (It was a delight to meet & chat with Derek Blasberg a few months back)
The Hudson Bay company called upon some of Vancouver’s best industry insiders to host their Spring Talk event.
Vancourites rejoice ! J.Crew is finally here.
To celebrate, J.Crew hosted a fabulous and well attended grand opening party. The room was overflowing with Vancouver’s fashion industry, excited to toast J.Crew’s arrival.
I was delighted to receive an invitation to Jacquie Somerville’s book preview, hosted at the ultra chic Georgia Rosewood Hotel.
We rode the elevator up to the penthouse suite and were greeted with a tray of cocktails & white white. The lavish suite was filled with a select group of media & industry fashionistas sipping drinks & chatting excitedly.
We hit the pink carpet for the opening gala for Vancouver Fashion Week at The Opus Hotel.
The always classy Derek Blasberg paid a visit to Vancouver this February to promote the second addition to his book series Classy.
The air is cool and crisp, the people are friendly, and there’s an abundance of acid wash denim. I think we’ll be good friends, Vancouver – Derek Blasberg, via twitter
The Room decked out mannequins in bright & neon colour. The mannequins donned cut out face mask of the Man of the hours grin . Blasberg’s classy & quirky ettique advice was quoted in vinyl over the walls & displays. A stack of “Very Classy” books was displayed for Blasberg to sign for every guest. The delightful & approachable Blasberg addressed each book to eager, and many Vancouver fans.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Derek remember the names of many guests as he bid farewell for the evening. What a gentleman – a skill to be admired.
