So here’s the deal: I hadn’t had the pleasure of covering the Quebec Lung Association’s largest annual fundraiser – Gala Bulles et Tapis Rouge til recently. Which, in party hindsight, is a grand pity because the grand dazzler at luxe jools retailer Birks’s downtown flagship (a Diary partner and fave) was a heckuva good way to spend a Wednesday night. 😉

Among the many memorables were a red carpet awash in champagne; insanely impressive menu catered by Europa’s JÉRÔME FERRER (yes a Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux); and the main event, a scintillating fashion show featuring the best of this season’s SHAN swim and beachwear for men and women.

Count me in for 2017.
