God Save the Queen - it's a British Invasion at The Bay, Queen Street! Toronto's fashion A-list were whisked onto the red carpet and greeted by a line-up of valets in front of the flagship store last Thursday. The NEXT British Invasion is a line of contemporary designers from across the pond now being being celebrated at 'The Room' inside The Bay. VIPs in attendance included: Charlotte Olympia Dellal, Giles Deacon, Mark Fast, Erdem Moralioglu, Jonathan Saunders, Marios Schwab, and Nicholas Kirkwood. The champagne was flowing as guests snacked on adorable themed hor's d'ouerves. Here are some pics that we were able to snap of the event:

Look at all these gorgeous shoes! I can't believe I'm in The Bay. If you haven't swung by yet, make sure you see the make-over that the Queen Street store has undergone. I was very impressed with their handbag collection that I barely made it up to the party on-time. hip + urban girls will adore Rachel by Rachel Roy, Halston Heritage, Vero Moda, EDIT by Jeanne Beker and The Moon Apparel Line all at The Bay and extremely affordable. For a more luxurious splurge, make sure you check out all the high-end designers inside The Room.
I woke-up the next day feeling like I had just drank a bathtub full of gin. Now I know why. Though it may look like punch, I swear it was straight-up gin in a cup :)

Ok, I am in love with The Beckerman Sisters after watching their adorable You Tube video. It was great to meet these energetic ladies in-person with their magnetic smiles. Watch the video and you will also swoon. Here I am (right) with one of my favourite fashion bloggers in Toronto, Ms. Anita Clarke from I Want I Got.
Fashion designer, Erdem and one of the most lovely fashion bloggers in Toronto, Marcus from A La Mode. We finally meet after so much tweeting. Erdem was on hand to chat about his collection, which a lot of people named as one of their favourites.
