Espy: Grand Re-Opening: Boutique to Give Shoppers the Best Fashion Experience

YYC continued with a list of fashion events this weekend. Binzento Vincente attended two of them:

Tonight though, I will focus on The Epsy Experience Grand Re-opening Event 

The Espy Experience Grand Re-opening

oh Zebras…I heart you..

The Espy Experience, located in Calgary's next fashion hub Inglewood, had a grand re-opening event past Friday. Before I begin to tell you guys how thrilled I am with this new store… 

Please meet the Espy Stylists!

Now that you've seen most of the stylists of the Espy team, you may ask: "so what?". Well, Espy is not an ordinary fashion boutique where you just walk-in, and fulfill your "shopping your feelings" moment. In fact, Espy do more just that; it provides an experience, whether if it's educational in fashion labels and beauty products or to share knowledge about styling and fashion trends
The whole concept of Espy is to build a positive relationship with the customer by understanding their needs. Espy also provides service to help their clients to find their most appropriate products at an affordable price. In addition, they promote fashion labels that are not well recognized in the community.

The grand re-opening night starts out with a red carpet event and models showcasing Espy products. The room was packed with guests, giving a great opportunity to mingle with new people. 
Parties like these never go without wine, catered snacks and DJ music, but what's unexpected was the live dance performance, a well thought of idea to warm up the crowd. 
friends: Jacqueline and Tomi

In terms of clothing, I am most impressed with the denims they offered: Levi's, Mavi, Fidelity, Cookie Johnson…Made in good quality and some using high grade Japanese jean fabric.
