The Rally Gallery on Ossington was beautifully illuminated with fashion-inspiration as the sun set on October 4th, for an intimate gathering to celebrate a special Toronto edition of Cabinet Éphémère. Guests were treated to cocktails and appetizers at the exclusive VIP reception, to kick-off the four day pop-up event hosted by media personality and fashion ambassador Glen Baxter.
Produced and funded by the CCMQ ‘Conseil des Créateurs de Mode du Québec/The Fashion Designers’ Council of Québec, this trunk show atmosphere pop-up boutique brings Montréal and Toronto fashion designers together; in a collaborative event to showcase creativity, vision, originality and quality collections. Inspired by international pop-up shows within the world’s biggest fashion cities, one of Canada’s most celebrated designers Marie Saint Pierre initiated this original idea in an effort to empower and celebrate Canada’s both emerging and established designer’s. The pop-up boutique offers a beautifully chosen selection of high-end and couture collections to fashion consumers and admirers alike.
The simple layout and elegant concept of the Rally Gallery created a perfect atmosphere for Tuesday’s event. Gorgeous fabrics and beautifully crafted designs filled the two-story space; while designers showcased hand-selected pieces from their AW16 & SS17 collections, along with other exclusive previews.
The talented designers involved in this unique nomadic boutique’s 7th edition event, include; By Kilani, Wallo, Marie Saint Pierre, Xian, Lamarque, Rush Couture, Les Poupounes de Luxe, Anne Marie Chagnon, UNTTLD, Amanda Maria, Eläma, Pedram Karimi, Louve Montréal, WRKDEPT, Christopher Bates, and Cara Cheung.
Toronto fashion lovers are invited to visit the west-end’s Rally Gallery at 12 Ossington Avenue, from Wednesday October 5th – to Saturday October 8th, to shop Fall/Winter 2016 designs and preview upcoming Spring/Summer 2017 collections.
