Cameron Silver Book Signing @ Bluebird

May, 30th, 2013

Had it not been for a tweet from Azura of Timeline Boutique I would have missed this event. I juggled my appointments and arrived promptly at 6:30pm. However, I didn’t want to be the first to arrive so I walked past Bluebird, 1055 Alberni St. and treated myself to a slice of quiche at nearby Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie Cafe. When I returned an hour later I saw a few familiar faces and checked-in with the cute girl standing guard at the front door.
Like the Sartorialist book signing, Bluebird was an oasis of well-dressed fashionistas.   The staff was kind and offered me a glass of champagne and tasty gourmet appetizers. The Tuna Tataki was my favorite. A fashionista showed me where an unwrapped copy of Cameron Silver’s book was located. “Decades: A Century of Fashion” was/is a coffee table sized book with lots of images. I quickly flipped through the book so I could start taking my own photos. The event quickly became a Who’s Who of the local fashion scene.   While I knew most of the women I photographed, I opted for candid photos and minimized the number of smiling, pose for the camera shots. By 8:30pm the crowd had visibly thinned. By 8:45pm I realized I was one of the few remaining guests. It was a nice way to spend the evening.
Coincidentally, several weeks earlier I photographed a lady wearing a minidress from Bluebird. Click Limi to see her impromptu photo shoot!
