Party photos of the week: Holt Renfrew's Fashion Week

Holt Renfrew changed up its World MasterCard Fashion Week game by taking its show in-store on Monday night, and opted for a Friday-night-feeling fête over the traditional runway presentation at the tents. In a party packed with industry elite, media darlings and customers, the magenta mamas celebrated Canadian fashion with a series of nine visual displays showcasing the upcoming fall collections, from new lines such as Tanya Taylor to fan favourites such as Greta Constantine, Jeremy Laing and Smythe.
