Cool cars and funky fashions seem to go hand in hand, especially last week when two great local events ensured a stylish look for all. First up, North Shore BMW, at the North Shore Auto Mall, introduced the newest members of their X Series line at a elegant dealership reception. The sparkling white BMW X1 SUV/crossover was the star of the show as guests got a chance to see it unveiled for the very first time. Next it was a full on girls night out at West Vancouver’s Hollyburn Country Club as Pilar’s held their Viva La Moda – West Vancouver Spring 2011 Fashion Show. Runway reveals had everyone thinking spring and no one went home empty handed thanks to a plethora of fabulous prize giveaways.
