Why we heart pop-up shops: exclusive access to designer collections and carefully curated pieces in a boutique setting. As the pop-up shop trend continues to grow in New York and Toronto, it was only a matter of time that Vancouver began hosting more of these fashionable shopping events, and Lily + Jae is the latest Canadian designer to set-up shop in Gastown.






On Thursday, August 26, One of A Few in Gastown, Vancouver, hosted a launch party for the Lily + Jae Pop-Up shop, featuring vintage pieces, samples from previous seasons and separates for the Fall 2010 season. Amongst glasses of summery wine and homemade cupcakes, Vancouver's fashionable set perused racks of knits, printed skirts, fall capes and silk tunics, while DJ Sincerely Hana provided a background soundtrack to the evening soiree.

Here's a peek at the eclectic collections featured at One of A Few and the Lily + Jae Pop-Up. The Lily + Jae Pop-Up will be at One of a Few until December 2010.
