It was a ladies lunchtime treat earlier this month as West Vancouver’s Crave Beachside teamed up with Marilyns designer collection to host Festive Fashion Fete. A welcoming wine reception was followed by a gourmet lunch created by chef Wayne Martin. Then it was time for guest glam girls to sit back and see what’s hot for this season’s celebrations. A portion of the funds raised was also donated to the Christmas Bureau.
