Editor's Diary: Behind-the-Scenes at the Hermès Sample Sale
It’s 7:30am and while the scene inside may look calm, thousands of people are lined up at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for the biannual Hermès silk and accessories charity sale. Game for a fashion challenge, I have agreed to volunteer for the day. Hermès’ Canada’s PR Kate Chartrand has assigned me to belts and enamels. Hot commodities--we’re sure to sell out quick. Been already fielding urgent emails and tweets from friends and colleagues. Sadly, no ‘H’ belts for sale today, folks.
