Shut Up and Drive

Audi Downtown Toronto threw a fete Thursday night for the official unveiling of their new “masterpiece showroom” that merges design, architecture and fashion. The suit-filled audience of car lovers likely appreciated partying in one of the largest Audi workshops in the country, but the city’s fashionistas were in full force to scope out Bustle‘s limited edition Audi collection. Guests enjoyed cocktails in the showroom, but the runway show took over the spankin’ new, spotless service bay area.

Bustle’s looks bounced between sleek and sexy to prim and proper preppy, but all reflected some model of Audi. The trendy sportswear collection (which included ladies’ clothing, too) was auctioned off at the grand opening event with proceeds going to Sick Kids Hospital. Big applause for the hot rod (and mod) leather jackets…if they play their design cards right, they could give Mackage and Rudsak a run for consumers’ money.
