Previews and Thank yous
An exciting year is ahead of us, around the world and right here at home. There is a lot to look forward to and lots to look back on. This year was a full one for Cabaret. We were involved with more charities, parties, proms, weddings, and festivals than ever, while providing more high fashion vintage for our dear clients, designers, and collectors and launching our new website. We had our first ever Foreplay @ Cabaret party for the Sex and the City movie and our first Nuit Blanche party, both were fun and fabulous. We also provided wardrobe for theatre, including Soul Pepper productions and the hit musical Dirty Dancing, and Film and TV, including the upcoming feature Amelia, starring Hillary Swank. We will be growing even more this year! Looking ahead, we will be helping the growing number of girls and women looking for semi-formal and formal dresses for proms, galas, and weddings as well as the increasing requests of brides looking for a beautiful vintage wedding gown. These clients are all seeking the uniqueness, quality, and high fashion style that our vintage collection offers. We cannot forget our men though. Our large selection of vintage suits is always extremely popular for the guys, and this year we will be focusing on all the details for our men of style. The new Custom Biltmore Hats, our vintage, shirts, jackets, ties, ascots, and cufflinks all add that undeniable and enviable element of attraction.
Here are some other highlights for 2009. We have been collaborating with the fantastic photoghrapher, Sara Angelucci, for her upcoming exhibit in Contact, the largest photography festival in the world, in May. We will also be working with the Drake Hotel and the Gladstone Hotel on several packages to look out for. Cabaret will have events again for Mother’s Day, The Film Festival (TIFF), Nuit Blanche, and a Foreplay Party. If you would like more information on our upcoming events please join our guest list and watch out for our great vintage treasures available directly from our website to shop online soon!
The New Year always signals reflection to me so, to close last year and this letter I would like to thank my family, my friends, the Queen West neighbours, Labl, Lorenzo, Harley, Bernard, France, Sarah and Michelle. And special thanks to Elizabeth, Jason, Rose, Matt, and Natasha for your help and support in Cabaret. And Finally, you, our dear clients!
May 2009 be your best year ever!
