Mr. Will-W posted On his blog about his experience meeting SJP at the Halston Heritage launch, and he graciously has allowed us to post about it here! A big thank you to him. I also added three images he took the gallery, so make sure you check them out.
hat’s right – be jealous. That would be Carrie Bradshaw herself and your favourite Pop Culture Maven, Mr. Will-W. together at last. Sarah Jessica Parker flew in to Toronto to do a quick round of promotion for the launch of the Halston Heritage Collection, sold exclusively at The Bay. The party was held at the Queen Street flagship store. Parker was recently selected as Chief Creative Officer for the reborn fashion line. Many of you might already recognize one of fashion line’s marquee items in the Sex and The City 2 poster, which she wears with pride.
Prior to being known mostly for its line of drug store discount fragrances, fashion house Halston was a big deal in the ’70s. Just like how Ungaro hadn’t been relevant in quite some time, Halston is now amidst a major relaunch. Canada’s premiere department store The Bay has made no secret about wanting to up the ante to compete with the high fashion of Holt Renfrew. My readers might remember that America’s Next Top Model’s Miss J. Alexander visited this past weekend at their Bloor Street location, drawing a bit of that celebrity appeal to its name. And I was there.
And let me tell you this, Parker is everything I thought she would be and more in person. After waiting for her to do her rounds with the Canadian media fashion elite, I finally got a chance to say “hi” before she finally headed out after sticking around for an hour. Graciously she signed a little memento for me and posed for a photo with me, despite being in a rush to catch a flight back home to New York (I’m assuming). We talked quickly about Sex and The City 2 and I expressed my excitement to see it. She told me I am going to love it. Scream.
