For its 175th anniversary celebration in September, Holt Renfrew went all out with a wave of appearances by designers and celebrities, including Sir Elton John at the Bloor Street flagship, a street party in Toronto, a 12-minute film tribute to the store (in 3-D) on the flagship facade, a stepped-up awards program for employees and a slew of commemorative products from designers, in Holt’s signature magenta.
“We approached our key vendors to share in the celebration and create unique and exclusive products. They became keepsakes,” said Pat Di Bratto, Holt’s senior vice president of buying and merchandising.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
