Fashion’s Night Out in Toronto
6PM—HEAD START: Set the evening’s haute tone with cocktails and complimentary make-up applications from Maybelline and Redken at MasterCard’s Stylicity Lounge (Shops at Hazelton Lanes, 87 Avenue Road, Oval Square, Lower Level). If that didn’t entice you, how about the chance to win MasterCard gift card to keep this red-carpet treatment going?
7PM— SWEET RIDE: Catch a glimpse of the hottest wheels in town with a sneak peek of the Hot at Holts mobile tour at Holt Renfrew (50 Bloor Street West). A host of stylish events are taking place in-store (to also celebrate its 175th anniversary), while its distinct hot pink exterior screens a public film premiere outside at 8PM as part of luxe retailer’s Hot in the City street party. The store is open until 11PM and is offering giveaways, shopping treats and a taste of Holts 175 Diet Coke. With DJ Brendan Fallis spinning tracks outside all night, this may be your haute one-stop shop for the night, folks.
8PM— STYLISH GLIMPSE: If Fashion’s Night Out can only be a short pit stop for you, make your rounds at eLUXE (355 Adelaide Street West, Ground Level), which will debut the exclusive Smythe for eLUXE blazer tonight. The e-retailer also host a Rebekah Price trunk show, sweets from Megan Wappel designs and six giveaways.

10PM— NIGHT CAPPER: The fashionable shops brought together for The Bazaar by RAC Boutique (The Burroughes Building, 6th Floor 639 Queen Street West) are not like the others.
