Darlene of Bijouxbead says…

Embrace Valentine Cocktail took place on Thursday, February 11 at Magnolia, 333 Eglinton Avenue West. The special event featured the wearable art of Bijouxbead by designer Darlene Martin who was there in person to greet guests.

The store was packed with a fashionable crowd sipping pink sparkling wine and enjoying cupcakes from Phipps.  Among the guests were  Yahoo! Canada’s senior lifestyle editor Renee Sylvestre-Williams, I Want I Got’s Anita Clarke, fashion designer Jamil Juma of Juma, The Soles of my Shoes’ Kimberly Lyn,  and executive director of the Toronto Fashion Incubator, Susan Langdon.

“I feel very fortunate that my work has been so well received by Toronto’s fashion community.  I was thrilled for the opportunity to show my work at Magnolia.  I attribute much of the event’s success to the diligent work of Magnet Creative‘s Gail McInnes.” -Darlene Martin, Bijouxbead
