By now, most people know that The Bay is bringing Topshop to Toronto, and last night it held a fete and shopping event to celebrate the British brand’s arrival. DJ Lauren Burns Coady provided the music to an array of young women, including writers Sarah Nicole Prickett and Kiwi Mohamed and photographer Jaclyn Locke—at one point it became a bit difficult to discern one painfully hip young person from the next. The Topman brand didn’t have any presence at this party, but that didn’t stop model Jano Badovinac and artist Nick Fox from showing up to get their photos taken and, as one does at these sorts of things, drink. As some may have guessed, it was a very young crowd, which was likely an effort on The Bay’s part to separate the Room consumer from the younger, cooler Topshop enthusiast. We missed Suzanne Rogers.
