Meet Erdem and Jonathan Saunders at the Bay on Friday!
The Bay’s full-tilt foray into high fashion continues apace. This Thursday and Friday, the Toronto Queen Street store is hosting a two-day extravaganza of British fashion, dubbed God Save the Queen. The Room will be transformed with installations and the opening night soiree will let the guest list-only crowd mingle with the cool kids of London fashion–Mark Fast, Marios Schwab, Erdem, Jonathan Saunders, Charlotte Olympia Dellal, Nicholas Kirkwood and Giles Deacon, who will be demonstrating his DJ prowess.
Friday, October 15 there is a handful of trunk shows–shoe designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal will show her super-hot Charlotte Olympia line at 11:00 a.m., Giles Deacon will present his offerings at 1:00, Erdem is up at 2:00, Nicholas Kirkwood is next at 3:00 and Jonathan Saunders is at 4:00–at The Room, as well as a panel discussion on “The Next Wave of British Fashion” at noon. Both are open to the public, as is a month-long pop-up shop from London fashion mag, Lula, which was founded by Canadian Leith Clark. (Yes, that makes three Canadian imports on the event’s roster). The pop-up will have limited-edition items from a select group of designers, chosen by Clark–a Jason Wu skirt, an Erdem dress and Miu Miu shoes are part of the offerings.
As a lead-up to the God Save the Queen event, the Bay sent out a pretty lavish media kit. Click the images below to see a gallery of designer pics.
