The countdown is on! After The Ball opens in theatres in one month’s time (Feb 27th), and to help drum up excitement, we partnered with Pacific Northwest Pictures and Le Château to host an intimate screening and cocktail event at the Thompson Hotel.

Fashion media, style bloggers and the most adorable mother-daughter duos ever, corralled in the Thompson Hotel’s gorgeous screening room to sip Apothic Wine, test out Cake Beauty’s Delectably Chic natural line, snap pics wearing costumes from the film (all designed by Le Château & in store now!) and settled in for an evening of laughter and romance. (AKA the cutest night ever.)

Hilarious bitchy step-sisters, played by Actors Anna Hopkins and Natalie Krill, were in attendance for a post-screening Q&A. They gave us the lowdown of what it was like to become fashion spies and work with Chris Noth (who played their step-dad).

Executive produced by Don Carmody (Chicago, GoodWill Hunting) and produced in part by Le Château, After The Ball is a hilarious, sweet and clever fashion fairy tale that is easy to fall for. (You will love just as much as your 12-year-old niece, we promise.)

From fashion to film: we’re thrilled to help promote a project that brings together so much creative talent in a truly original way.

Thank you to all the sponsors who made this cold January evening a warm and welcoming event. Sponsors include The Ten Spot, Eat Nakd, Shloer, Apothic Wines, be Delectable  by Cake Beauty, H2O Float Spa and naturally, Le Château.
