Fall For Style Contest: Behind the Scenes

Our five winners and their friends were welcomed to Calgary’s Retail & Entertainment district at the brand new Hotel Elan, where they enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast in the hotel’s Orchid Room.

After shopping the day away, our winners wrapped up their day at Moxies. They rested their feet in the relaxing lounge, showing us their purchases while they enjoyed mouth watering hors d’oeuvres and wine from Apothic Winemakers.
