Holt Renfrew Reveals Fashion Blogger Windows
National Windows Pay Homage to Online Style-Leaders

TORONTO, June 23 /CNW/ – This Friday evening, Holt Renfrew, Canada’s leading specialty retailer, will pay tribute to the newest international style influencers – fashion bloggers – with a national window installation celebrating their diversity and spirit.
Six bloggers were invited by Holt Renfrew Creative Director John Gerhardt to be part of the celebration. The bloggers are a diverse mix of fashion leaders from around the globe and include Scott Schuman (; Jane Aldridge (; Anita Clarke (; Tommy Ton (; Bryan Boy ( and Garance Dore (
“Bloggers have become the fashion world’s new celebrities,” says Gerhardt. “They’re knowledgeable and influential contributors to the modern media landscape. Their opinions and visuals are relevant, creative and thought-provoking, providing a constant source of inspiration. We are honoured to pay homage to their style.”
At Holt Renfrew’s flagship location in Toronto, two of the blogger-inspired windows will be equipped with a 24-hour interactive touch screen for the public to cast votes to help select Holts Contemporary Correspondent. The two Toronto finalists will be competing in a series of fashion-related challenges being held over six weeks. Votes can also be cast through Holt Renfrew’s Facebook page and the winner will be determined based on total number of public votes.

The only one I can vouch for is the Stila sale – I went to the one they had early in  December and it was great!
