Where do you go to find the most beautiful, well-dressed people in the city? The Room, of course. With its closets stocked with the crème de la crème of fashions (think Erdem, Mary Katrantzou, Maison Martin Margiela and local favourite Jason Matlo), The Bay Downtown Vancouver’s latest addition garnered the attention of fashion elite and local who’s who, not to mention a handful of celebs. Spokeswoman Bonnie Brooks, shoe connoisseur Brian Atwood, Fashion Television’s Jeanne Beker, MTV’s Jessi Cruickshank and the boys of The Buried Life were all on hand to celebrate the opening.
After being welcomed on the red carpet, guests were guided by charming white-tuxedoed gentlemen and treated to delicious hors d’oeuvres and overflowing bubbly. Boys dressed in Balenciaga and ladies in Lanvin perfectly complimented the sleek and modern space; while whispers of designer sightings (Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu were the talk of the Twitterverse) kept the excitement of the party rolling.
The encounter of the evening? Rubbing shoulders with model extraordinaire Jessica Stam.
