The new rules of dressing up flirt with the past while keeping an optimistic look at the future — much like our host, the newly renovated Fairmont Olympic Hotel. This season, step out in designer threads that feature smart suiting, relaxed-yet-glamorous evening silhouettes, and on-trend flapper details.
