It was a night where fashion met multimedia art on November 25 as Evan Biddell’s “End of Decade” sale transformed Queen Street West boutique, Chasse Gardee, from shoe store to art centre. Featuring a multi-media window display by Jol Thomson, who had a show at Toronto’s Distillery District a few days later.

The sale started early, at around 5 pm that evening and not only went on until late that night, but was extended until the end of the weekend. Items ranged from long hoodie shirts for women which could work as minidresses on petite ladies to basketball jersey-like pieces which were seen in Evan’s Fall/Winter 2009 collection and formal wear.  One very interesting piece was a pair of pants that had such a long rise that Evan himself said that it would be “difficult to climb the stairs in.”  In addition to Evan’s pieces, another season one Project Runway Canada contestant, Carlie Wong, also had items available at the sale.
