Livin’ La Dolce Vita: Parte Uno

Whoever fretted over the end of summer clearly has not been to Vancouver. We’ve been saving the best for last. From Boboli fashion shows to dinners decked in white, Lien and I have been ringing in the end of August in “soulcialite style.”

Last Wednesday evening, LivingSpace, Bacci’s and Boboli hosted La Dolce Vita II, a fundraiser in support of Emily Carr’s Industrial Design program. The reprise of the first edition of the event drew Vancouver’s most “chi-chi” crowd. We savoured award-winning food trucks,  oyster from Curious Oyster, a Bao Bei dumpling bar, custom cocktails by House Guest Supperclub and specialty “poptail” popsicles by C restaurant.

The evening concluded with a decadent fashion presentation by Bacci’s and Boboli, featuring a number of noted fashion houses.

It's not a buzzed about event until the ghost chairs are out.
