Holt Renfrew is the Luxury Premiere Department Store here in Canada founded since 1837. Since their founding they have been known to be the furrier to the Queen of the United Kingdom, Queen Victoria during that time. The reigning Monarch of the United Kingdom is the Head of State of Canada up to the present time. But since then, Holts has expanded to be the premier luxury store, making Canadians fashionable and making the International luxury designer goods available to Canadians.
After work that Thursday, we decided to attend the Holt Renfrew street party to kick off the FNO Toronto and celebrate Holts@175. There was a street party where Holts offered guests free Special Edition Diet Coke in bottles covered in Magenta and some popcorn. There was a Video presented on the facade of the Store and a virtual Fashion Show. Holt Renfrew's signature colour is Magenta. It is a lovely colour for the store. To celebrate their 175th Anniversary, Holts launched the Special Edition Magenta Collection and the Hot@175 Mobile Tour which will travel across major cities in Canada, carrying some Special commemorative Sweatshirts designed by seven internationally world renowned graphic artists for sale. Here are some pictures from the event and from Holt Renfrew Department Store shopping night.
