Today I attended the Hermès Canada Charity Silk and Accessories Sale at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. It's a biennial event with all proceeds going to support Multiple Sclerosis research at Toronto's St. Michael's Hospital. Such a worthy cause was the perfect justification for picking up this beautiful red scarf! It's the Faubourg Express pattern. I arrived much later in the day (it started at 8 am and I heard snippets of conversation that said there were already 500 people in line by 6 am!) so missed the line ups. Apparently there was also not much left compared to the morning. I was enamoured with the plaid designs evoking the British Isles but felt that since Hermès was such an esteemed French fashion house, I should go for something more Parisian. Love!
