Tonight I had the pleasure of shooting a very swish event in The Room at The Bay.  In recent years the retail giant has kicked it up a notch, with a major renovation to their Queen Street store and their reputation.  Bonnie Brooks (fabulous in feathers, below) has taken the brand to new heights, now rivaling the likes of Holt Renfrew and the great department stores of the world.  

Tonight that was plainly obvious as all the big names in fashion came out to celebrate.  On the very flashy (and pricey) 3rd floor (simply called The Room) blogger-wunderkind Tommy Ton showcased his beautiful photos of Vogue Japan editor-at-large Anna Dello Russo.  She's famous for her eccentric style and kooky behaviour and their collaboration doesn't disappoint.  

Before busting a move on the impromptu dancefloor (the fur traders never saw this coming) the photographer and his charming muse flitted about The Room, several costume-changes between them, thrilling even the most-jaded fashion people in town.  It was kind of magical.
