On Friday, August 12, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth was decked out like the Savannah for the Forever Wild fashion show. Presented by the OSI Group and hosted by Benoit Gagnon, the
event celebrated 20 years of Etnia Barcelona. Amid the impressive botanical décor, the models, dressed by Montreal’s internationally celebrated stylist Cary Tauben, took to the catwalk showcasing the Etnia Eyewear Culture Group’s four brands: Etnia Barcelona, ALLPOETS, lool, and The Readers.

Many optometrists and opticians from different OSI Group member clinics enjoyed the breathtaking view of the City of Montreal at Espace C2.
