Behind The Scenes: Avant Ski

Avant Ski, translating to “pre-ski,” represents the start of the fall season and time to get winter ready!

The Avant Ski party featured backstage access to the pre-ski party featuring beautiful outwear by House of Mackage. Partygoers viewed the men and women’s pieces while mingling over a pop-up ice bar.

Mackage, the featured designer, is a Canadian company that was launched by Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan in 1999. It is now one of the most prestigious contemporary outwear brands worldwide. Each collection is designed with intricate detailing and tailored cuts in leather, down and wool. When they first launched in 1999, they started with only a women’s collection but expanded to include men in 2008. The company introduced their first handbag collection in 2013. Mackage is distributed to move renowned retailers and is sold in over twenty countries, with flagship stores in New York City, Montreal and Toronto.
