On a busy Wednesday eve, international fashion brand Gerry Weber launched its Canadian flagship at Yorkdale Mall. Taylor Schilling, of Orange Is The New Black fame, was on hand to toast the opening with GM of Gerry Weber Canada Joe Caporrella.
On the same eve and not to be outdone, Dwayne Kennedy, founder of The Collections, amassed an impressive group of influencers for the launch of Dauphine Magazine, an ultra-lux wedding bi annual, at La Société in Yorkville. The event, almost certainly over capacity, was dotted with fashion notables like Robin Kay, Paul Mason, and Jay Strut.
Earlier in the week, Holt Renfrew Men held a cocktail for the debut of ‘Lego Metropolitan,’ an in-store art exhibit by Raymond Girard and Laird Kay. The duo’s Lego creations adorn the store’s main window display, walls, and stairs as part of Holt Renfrew Men’s rotating art project.
