CAFTCAD and Harry Rosen

Harry Rosen hosted CAFTCAD Members a few months back to show us the new renovations and set up of their very handsome store on Bloor Street West.
After a really informative tour,(where we got to touch the most beautiful suits and cashmere goods and dream dress dashing leading men) we stood in the balmy September evening under the stars enjoying wine, snacks, and oh so much good conversation.

Thanks to all the team at Harry Rosen for making such a lovely evening for us all.

If you get to go, let us know here at CAFTCAD how much you liked it.
