“A NIGHT FORGED BY TIME” 2017

HOSTED BY HUGO BOSS CANADA & MERCEDES-BENZ

 Truth be told, I had been looking very forward to attending this special Saturday night F1 Grand Prix 50th anniversary event at Windsor Station, because, well, how could a team-up of two such legendary luxury brands, HUGO BOSS and Mercedes-Benz, culminate in anything but an incredible event experience?

Expectations exceeded!

The space at the historic venue was magnificent (airy and sporty-chic), crowd stellar (LEWISH HAMILTON STELLAR!), food sublime (hello Fairmont Queen E!) and performances, EXTRA, as the ‘Lenials say.

Heck don’t take my word(s) for it. 😉 See the following exclusive pix for a real-deal feel.
