PARKLUXE 2019 RETURNS TO DOWNTOWN CALGARY IN 5 DAYS
This Saturday, Brookfield Place will once again transform from a major downtown hub into an eloquent runway as PARK celebrate Canadian’s premier designers, artists, and culinary talents! We are excited to continue our partnership with Export Québec for PARKLUXE 2019 Presented by Downtown Calgary and bring premier high-end designers from coast to coast onto one runway for the ultimate night of luxury.
“We’re pleased to support PARKLUXE for a second year. This is a night of fashion that celebrates Canada’s remarkably talented designers and artists, all showcased in the heart of downtown Calgary,” says Marco De Iaco, Executive Director, Calgary Downtown Association.
Calgary’s Paul Hardy, Lauren Bagliore, Nonie and Adesso Man will be presenting their FW19 collections at PARKLUXE 2019 alongside Montreal’s Oscar Mendoza and headliners UNTTLD. But there is so much for our guests to do and see before the show begins!
THE PLATINUM VIP DINNER PRESENTED BY DOM PÉRIGNON
For our Platinum VIP guests, the night will begin with an exceptional dining experience exclusively catered by the Hawthorn Dining Room & Bar, located within the iconic Fairmont Palliser. A modern ode to the hotel’s rich history, the elevated eatery opened earlier this year and has already been met with raving reviews. Executive Chefs Eraj Jayawickreme and Dave Bohati utilize ingredients from local producers, farmers, and suppliers to create delicious dishes infused with bold, classic Canadian flavours.
The Platinum menu will feature a 3-course family-style dinner with a champagne pairing by Dom Pérignon.
“We are incredibly excited about this partnership for PARKLUXE 2019. This project is true to Hawthorn’s and PARK’s testimony of highlighting local producers and artisans. We are combining the best of Calgary’s food scene with local fashion to celebrate a perfect alignment of our brands,” says Eraj Jayawickreme, Fairmont Palliser Executive Chef and Food and Beverage Manager.
