Add into that my favourite jewellery designer Carolyn Bruce was going to be one of the sponsors and the deal was sealed. CURVE was also a part of Art! Vancouver, a world-class 4-day art event being held at several locations around Vancouver. Event producer Vernard Goud of LuvNGrace Entertaintment has my number down pat.
There was a smattering of rain this evening as I walked from the Skytrain to the venue, but nothing too intimidating. Outside, several smiling, handsome men stood ready to valet guest's car and welcome everyone in. This was a private invite only event, so everyone needed to check in first. On entrance I was greeted with more smiles plus hugs by the lovely ladies in charge of the invite list - Sonya Signic and Charlotte Doering. I have said it before but it bears repeating, having warm friendly people to welcome guests really sets the tone for any event.
The evening was a lovely mix of shopping, mingling and art, all in support of Caroline MacGillivray's organization - Beauty Night Society. Glasses of white and red wine from The Hatch Winery, as well as small bottles of water were available from roaming servers or from a bar at the back. LEONE features a long, elegant entry hall with several side galleries along both sides, each focusing on different international designers.
