One of Toronto’s premier hotels & luxury destinations, the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Toronto was the site of Paula Callejas‘ Spring/Summer 2014 collection launch last Tuesday. Offering a more intimate setting than the typical fashion week runway presentations we’re accustomed to, the Ritz-Carlton’s quiet Pool & Spa was the perfect venue to showcase Paula’s amazing couture swimwear line. With the help of a trusty Elinchrom strobe & also the cooperation of some great models, we were also able to come away with some on-location portraits from the event!
Below, I’ve split my coverage from the event into 3 separate galleries:
As always, shout outs to Shaun & friends at Bad PR for organizing & putting on a great event + for having me there!
