One evening walking back to our hotel in NYC, we came across the most magnificent balloon backdrop decorating the entire facade of a cafe. I stopped to ask the woman setting it up if this was a grand opening of some sort given the elaborate display of balloons. She said it was for a fashion show being held at her cafe the next day. When I asked her the name of the cafe and the fashion designer, the stars aligned. It turned out the cafe was Maman NYC, the original “Mother Cafe” to the Maman I frequent in downtown Toronto! The designer was BHLDN, and they were previewing the new wedding dress collection. After a few minutes of chatting I found myself with an invitation for the event.
I arrived the next morning dressed to brave the weather for a warm but rainy day ahead. This wool trench was the perfect layer to tackle the strange weather. Even if my boyfriend had referred to me as “Detective Drake”!
