Saks Fifth Avenue Launch Party

On Tuesday, February 16th, Saks Fifth Avenue opened the doors of its flagship Canadian store at the south end of Toronto's Eaton Centre. To celebrate its first location north of the border, Saks threw a big bash, inviting the city's fashion elite, media influencers, and top executives from Hudson's Bay and Cadillac Fairview.

As guests walked through the Queen St. doors, they were greeted with flutes of bubbly. O&B servers passed a wide variety of gourmet bites such as spicy salmon and wakame hand rolls, foie gras parfait on brioche, and smoked duck breast with Saskatoon berries on focaccia. While guests sipped and sampled, dancers from the National Ballet performed in various installations throughout the store.

Spanning three floors, the space felt fresh, vibrant and luxurious. On the upper floors, O&B's catering team set up two custom food stations featuring liquid nitrogen marshmallows, torched infused and dusted, as well as croissant and pain au chocolat pudding with smoked bacon brittle - just like breakfast for dessert!
