White Space Launch – The Bay Yorkdale

On Thursday night, Solmaz and I attended the official launch party of the White Space at The Bay Yorkdale which was co-hosted by the Fashion Magazine.

Here are some of my favorite looks from the runway.   Clockwise from top left : ADAM, Michael Kors, Christian Siriano, and Elie Tahari  – All pictures Spring 2011 RTW I will be posting more looks from the NY Fashion Week and hopefully accessories as well.
