Blogger's Bazaar 2011

It's already been three weeks since our Saint-Denis shop welcomed Montreal's fashion mavens for an exclusive evening of style, food and music. Masterminded by, the second edition of the Blogger's Bazaar showcased the exciting wares of GlobLove, Native Shoes, Ragwear, Snow Image, Jennifer Laoun-Rubenstein, SAS Handbags, Tat Design & Zanerobe. With catering provided by the best of the best: 753bt, 8 Catering, Angelica and a to-die-for live performance courtesy of G’Nee and Her Kings & World of Love Recordz, it's safe to say that the event will keep all who attended buzzing for months!

All of us at Georges Laoun Opticien were thrilled to be part of the magic and send out heartfelt congratulations to all the participants who put in countless hours to make this event fabulous!

For those who were there, here are some memories to smile upon. For those who weren't, we think these photos will make you wish you were:
