The Social Event of the Season…



The 3nd Annual SHINE Fashion Tea takes place on Sunday February 2, 2020 at Fairmont Empress Hotel from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. The pre-tea Social Mixer happens in the historic Palm Court, and the Fashion Tea takes places in the adjacent iconic Crystal Ballroom.

This is no ordinary afternoon tea!

Once again this year, football is not the only game in town on Super Bowl Sunday!
The 3rd annual SHINE Fashion Tea is a bespoke, luxe afternoon affair with VIP Bubbly Reception, Spring 2020 runway fashion show, Empress Hotel’s iconic afternoon tea, a high style silent auction and of course celebrity hosts Todd and Rebecca Talbot. Get your ticket, treat yourself to a new dress, don that fascinator hat and on Sunday February 2, 2020 join us in Fairmont Empress Hotel’s stunning Crystal Ballroom for an afternoon of chic style and , in support of BC Children’s Hospital.
