    The year 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada, also known as Canada 150. What better way to honour Canada’s sesquicentennial than exploring 150 years of cultural heritage through the senses? This year’s Maple Leaf Ball will transport guests into the late 19th and early 20th centuries and evoke the glamorous cocktail parties and banquets of this era. History will be resurrected as a feast for the senses, and guests will cherish regional culture and flavors in celebration of Canada 150. Celebrate the anniversary with style, while raising your glass to the rich cultural history from coast to coast.
    Dress code: During La belle Époque (or Age of Opulence), elaborate couture gowns (from houses like Poiret and Worth) crafted from luxe materials were not uncommon for high society women… For that set, special occasions were meant to be celebrated, and these evening pieces eliminated the restricting corsetry of the past, added ornate embellishments, and encouraged women to dance.
    着装要求:在那个富裕的年代,由奢侈昂贵的材料精心制作的时装礼服(出自Poiret 和 Worth之手)对于上流社会的女性而言并不罕见。特殊的场合意在庆祝,这些晚宴服也消除了过往只能穿紧身衣料的束缚,添上了很多华丽的装饰,鼓励女士徜徉于舞池中。
