Spotted from the Backseat: Lunch with Margaret and George 2013

On November 4, The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and luxury fashion retailer George C hosted its third annual “Lunch with Margaret & George” at the Art Gallery of Ontario in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. With Giles Deacon and Derek Lam having served up fabulous runway shows at lunches past, this year’s edition promised to be no less fabulous with Joseph Altuzarra as the guest of honour.

After an intimate lunch in Baillie Court (because it’s called Lunch with Margaret & George, after all), the New York-based designer presented his gorgeous Spring 2014 collection in Frank Gehry’s Galleria Italia, the perfect setting for a runway show. The fashionable audience included the likes of event co-chairs Emmanuelle Gattuso and George and Lisa Corbo, editors-in-chief Bernadette Morra of FASHION and Miranda Purves of FLARE, and even ‘Suits’ star Sarah Rafferty.

Check out the gallery below for style snaps from the lunch, as well as photos of Altuzarra and his models backstage and on the runway.

Lunch with Margaret & George…and Derek Lam Too!


Soho House’s Markus Anderson and FLARE Magazine’s Liz Cabral

On November 8, 2012, The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Yorkville boutique George C hosted the 2nd Annual Lunch with Margaret & George at the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto. Surrounded, quite literally, by lovely ladies who lunch decked out in their noon-hour finest, the charity function was one of the swankiest and most fashionable meals I’ve had the good fortune of enjoying in some time.

The highlight of the event came when, just before dessert, guests were treated to a presentation of Derek Lam‘s Spring 2013 runway collection. Though the New York-based designer himself was unfortunately unable to attend as planned (Mother Nature had other, snow-filled plans for him), his pieces, inspired by Barkley L. Hendricks paintings from the 1970s, thankfully made it to the luncheon for our viewing pleasure. And pleased we were, with the very covet-worthy line-up of ready-to-wear, handbags and shoes that we got to see up close and personal.

Canadian fashion industry heavyweights like FLARE Magazine‘s new editor-in-chief Miranda Purves, her counterpart at FASHION Magazine Bernadette Morra, Holt Renfrew’s Lisa Tant and FLARE fashion director Liz Cabral lent their support to the very worthy cause and stylish event. By the time the last morsel of food was consumed, over $150,000 had been raised in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. A very productive working lunch indeed.
