THE SCENE: Kate and Laura Mulleavy play host to socialites, designers and “Poordarte”-clad editors at the Bay

THE SCENE: Kate and Laura Mulleavy play host to socialites, designers and “Poordarte”-clad editors at the Bay

With the spate of good weather, Torontonians have been out en masse enjoying the sunshine, but in all the craziness and mishegoss of patios and Bellwoods, we hope they haven’t forgotten the important things: parties at stores. The Bay hosted Toronto’s society set for a meet-and-greet with Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sisters behind high fashion label Rodarte, last night. While the crowd was much smaller than usual, a lot of names came out to party.

Dressed in simple outfits —Laura in a tan blouse and tuxedo trousers and Kate in a long cardigan and jeans (the same they wore for interviews earlier in the day)—the girls looked a far cry from their outlandish designs. Socialites Suzanne Rogers and Vonna Bitove arrived together before Rogers, in a Peter Pilotto gown, broke off for a loud hug with Bitove’s daughter Jenna. Though plenty of rich ladies stopped in, Stacey Kimmel was the only socialite we spotted actually wearing Rodarte. Designers like Jeremy Laing, Greta Constantine’s Kirk Pickersgill and fellow sisters of the cloth Chloe and Parris Gordon were also in attendance (the Gordons noted they were dying to meet another sister design team). But most numerous were the fashion editors, including Globe and Mail writers Tiyana Grulovic and Maggie Wrobel sporting their finest “Poordarte” (their words): Wrobel in a yellow cardigan from the Target collection and Grulovic in a “way discounted [maroon dress] from Opening Ceremony.” Other media included Fashion magazine’s Bernadette Morra, Flare’s Mosha Lundstrom-Halbert and Fiona Green, the National Post’s Nathalie Atkinson, and the Star’s Derrick Chetty. With so many journalists and bloggers in the house, the Mulleavy girls didn’t have a moment to themselves until they were secreted off to a dinner at Charles Khabouth’s newest venture, Stories. A girl’s got to eat.
