Giles, George & Margaret

Earlier this month I was fortunate to work on a new fashion fundraiser, Lunch with Margaret and George, to raise money for The Princess Margaret’s Gattuso Rapid Diagnostic Centre. The brainchild of Toronto boutique George C owners, George and Lisa Corbo, it featured a runway presentation of Giles Deacon’s spring 2012 collection. Guests were treated to a champagne lunch at Scarpetta in the Thompson Hotel followed by an old-school atelier show and a live silent auction.
 
Giles Deacon could be your new best friend. (Wait, please mine.) It’s impossible not to like him when he’s so easy going and nice. And getting to see his work up close and on models was a treat – feather headdresses don’t come around Toronto too often! The event raised $200,000 for the Princess Margaret. There is already buzz about who will be featured next year, but I’ll bet they are on the racks at George C. I just hope they are as nice as Giles.
