Flare’s Fall 2008 Fashion & Beauty Presentation


 
On a warm summer evening, industry invitees arrived at Birks for Flare’s annual Fashion & Beauty Presentation. Guests sipped custom cocktails featuring X-Rated Fusion Liqueur while browsing the Birks jewelry cases and sampling delicious hors d’oeuvres from The Salt & Pepper Catering Co. Following the reception, Editor-in-Chief, Lisa Tant presented the hottest trends in beauty and fashion for Fall 2008. Door prizes generously donated by Random House, Yves Saint Laurent, and Birks provided an exciting end to the evening. Guests were also treated to Birks-inspired vanilla cupcakes with gold-leaf decorations and gift bags featuring Yves Saint Laurent’s award-winning Elle perfume, Birks catalogues, FIJI Water, and the latest issue of Flare.
