Event- Fashion – Food – Lifestyle
It was a beautiful day at the Polo For Heart 2013 benefiting the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Southlake Regional Health Centre. Besides the two international polo matches, another highlight of the highly anticipated event was the fashion show sponsored by Upper Canada Mall. While guests were enjoying VIP Buffet and watching the games, models strutted down the VIP tent in the latest collections from Upper Canada Mall’s retailers including Banana Republic, The Hudson’s Bay Company, Jacob, Le Chateau, Danier Leather, Rudsak, Simon Chang , Eeva and Eve, and White House | Black Market that will be launching later this year.

Upper Canada Mall is the leading shopping destination in New Market, located just 30 minutes north of Toronto. This year marked its 2nd year of Polo For Heart sponsorship, supporting heart and stroke related charities. As we sat and chat over gourmet food with Jennifer and Rob, Marketing Director and General Manager of Upper Canada Mall, we learned some really exciting news that we would like to share: Upper Canada Mall will be bringing in a number of new retailers to the mall in the next couple of months including Brandy Melville. Other retailers are still confidential, but we know for sure that there will be some very exciting fashion brands!
An Upper Canada Mall wifi lounge was set up at the VIP tent entrance featuring a photo booth for Polo for Heart, a prize draw for a chance to win a Michael Kors bag and a $500 Upper Canada Mall gift card, and some goodies for VIP guests. We received a copy of their 2nd issue of Gorgeous Magazine and a Gorgeous lemon leaf-scented candle, a hand-made candle with a unique scent created exclusively for Upper Canada Mall in collaboration with Joya Studio. The refreshing scent still lingers in my room.
