Event Brian Jessel Cabriolet Fashion Gala and Idea City Launch Party

Mar 22 and Mar 24

By Catherine Barr


It must be spring - so bring on the galas. Last Wednesday "Cabriolet - Brian Jessel BMW Fashion Gala 2006" saw guests put their best foot forward as Jessel's stylish dealership on Boundary Road was transformed into a glamorous ballroom/runway. Top local chefs dished the food then Leone models took to the catwalk all in support of Goldie Hawn's Bright Light Foundation and Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. Friday night was VIP night at the private West Van home of Eric Savic who, in conjunction with CityTV pioneer Moses Znaimer, hosted "A Taste of ideaCity". The evening launch was a personal invite to attend the "ideaCity 06" mastermind conference in Toronto in June where, over three days, 50 people of various backgrounds and influence will aim to inspire us through their stories.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
