A well-heeled crowd descended upon Magnolia boutique last Thursday to celebrate the in-store launch of Basch by Brandon Dwyer with bubbly and sweets.
The Eglinton and Avenue staple is my go-to when I need a Canadian fashion fix. With labels like Lucian Matis, Zoran Dobric and IZMA, owner Juan Carlos artfully selects garments with his loyal clientele in mind. “I like to celebrate Canadian designers,” Juan Carlos says. “It’s important to recognize what you have in your own backyard.”
