Inside last night’s Rodarte party at the Bay: Toronto’s finest, freshly sunned partygoers oohing and aahing around the sisters Mulleavy
Last night, the sister duo behind one of fashion’s darling labels, Rodarte, descended upon Toronto for a fête in their honour at the Bay’s glittering designer den, The Room. As the finest champagne flowed, the city’s finest, freshly sunned partygoers crowded around Laura and Kate Mulleavy to get a look—albeit a look-but-don’t-touch. “You can’t just sidle up beside them and say, ‘I love you,’” one guest lamented. And isn’t it strange but true? The moment one of your idols is presented on a platter, the nerves tend to overcome. Such wasn’t the case, however, for Toronto’s version of the sister power duo, Chloé and Parris Gordon of Chloé Comme Parris, who got in there to articulate their crush. (I was afforded a private one-on-two with the designers earlier in the day, the gush-laden results of which are forthcoming).
Meanwhile, the duo effect raged on throughout the room, as Knot PR partners Tatiana Read and Amy Burstyn-Fritz donned matching orange pants and leopard-print heels and blogger Anita Clarke, B Insider’s Kate Corbett and our own Caitlin Agnew broke out matching shades of brighter-than-bright yellow.
