Paul Hardy’s Exclusive Spring/Summer 2013 Reveal

October 22, 2012

On Saturday, all the stops were pulled out for one of the biggest fashion events Calgary has ever seen… The reveal of Paul Hardy’s Spring & Summer 2013 collection!

Over 50% of the guest list was flown in, including many of the bloggers who were there to cover the event.

Receiving an invite was like finding the golden ticket in a chocolate bar from Willy. I was honoured to be on the list.

The party was pure opulence; the attention to detail was amazing,  from the very first moment of having my car valet parked to the very last moment where I was personally thanked by Paul Hardy for coming, the event was one of the most decadent I’ve ever seen!

Much like the guests lists, all of the models were flown in from around the globe and were some of Canada’s finest; the fashion show was just as lavish and over-the-top as the entire party.

The models walked to live performances by Paul Brandt & wife Liz Brandt, Juno award winner Greg Sczebel, Among Savages- Peter Barbee and members of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.

The theme for his Spring and Summer 2013 line was an inspired ‘Amish in the City’ story.

Beautiful sequin dresses, leather peplems, chiffon and silk made their way down the runway during the 40 minute production.

Now with our appetite satisfied for fashion we were all treated to the most amazing after party.

Deliciousness from some of Calgary’s top chefs, and cocktails from some of the best mixologists; the party was in full swing.

The party included a guest list of Paul Hardy’s A-list clients,  notable Fashion Writers, Magazine EditorsTV Personalities and well-known Musicians.

We ate and mingled as the DJ played, all the while I kept pinching myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming!

As I wrapped up my night, I stopped by to thank Mr. Hardy for the gracious invite,  and the oh-so consummate host, who knows his fashion as well as he knows his guests, fed me one last cream puff!

This party was once in a lifetime and I’ll never forget all the fun I had and the wonderful people I met!

‘Pinch’, I wasn’t dreaming!
