At last, Toronto experiences its first Fashion’s Night Out! Danielle and I strolled the streets of Yorkville and Queen West and marveled at all the fashionable ladies frequenting the event. Everyone seemed to be having a blast – shopping, eating and drinking. What a great way to get over the post-summer blues…
Our first stop was Holt Renfrew, where the music was pumping and the energy was palpable. People were ecstatic about shopping the special promotions that came with FNO. As a refresher between purchases, people lined up for an adorable Holt Renfrew Diet Coke – how could you refuse a bottle that looks so chic?
Apparently, Holt Renfrew was also celebrating its 175th anniversary and many things in the store were 20% off… no wonder I kept seeing a sea of fuchsia shopping bags stream out of the store!
Next, Danielle and I headed over to Hazelton Lanes to check out the shopping soiree there. We had fun perusing through handbags and jewelry set up by small, niche boutiques. My feet were already killing me…
Finally, we made our way to The Burroughes where we were invited to attend the screening of the documentary film, Dressed. It told the story of a young fashion designer, Nary Manivong, who started out homeless but then accomplished the impossible by eventually getting to showcase his line at New York Fashion Week. Nary Manivong even showed up at the end of the movie for a quick Q&A session… it was such an inspiring story!
But before attending the screening on the rooftop of The Burroughes, we of course had to do a little shopping… and as you can see, the place was packed!
Some of the most notable pieces were the jewelry, all statement pieces that would make a great addition to any fall wardrobe.
So ladies, did you attend Fashion’s Night Out? If so, what was your favourite part about the evening?
