Over the month of September, I was meeting regularly with Doretta Lau, Jaclyn Bruneau, and Zoe Welch to plan a party: the Vancouver launch of Women in Clothes, a truly eclectic and insightful book about women’s relationship to style, to which we all contributed.

We rounded up a panel of interesting and stylish local women (Mina Shum, Joy Pecknold, Alex Quicho and Cynara Geissler), a bookseller (Kim from The Paper Hound), a photographer (Angela Fama) and a venue (Cavalier jewelers). We chose a date (September 29.) We told people to come ready to talk about clothes, and to bring an item with a story attached to it to swap.

After all that work, I’m so glad we did it. It was so awesome to see such a great bunch of people gather together and connect over stories, clothes, and a little bit of wine.
