Friday, fashion and FLARE proved to be a winning combination as I wrapped up a hectic week by attending a fall/winter 2011 trend presentation by Suzanne Timmins, vice president of fashion direction for The Bay, and Lisa Tant, editor-in-chief of FLARE magazine. Over the course of an hour, the two fiercely engaging and stylish women reviewed all the major trend stories of the season. Each story was followed by fashion show segments using pieces from The Bay to illustrate. Let's take a look at the event in pictures, shall we?
I was delighted when Lisa Tant caught my eye from backstage before the presentation, smiled and mouthed a silent "hello" to me. I was even more delighted when we said hello to each other in our complementary "black and white with a touch of red" outfits and I asked for a photo. (I have a history of asking for a photo with her, and each time she's obliged me very graciously. See here and here for proof.)
Special thanks to Suzanne Timmins, Lisa Tant and the Hudson's Bay Company for the lovely event.
