F is for Follies: Burlesque Window Shows at Holt Renfrew on Bloor Tomorrow

Something cheeky's happening in the windows at Holt Renfrew on Bloor this Saturday. Four times.

At 1:30, 2:15, 3:00 and 3:45 pm, shoppers and passers-by can feast their eyes on saucy burlesque performances by dancers from Jezebel Burlesque, an upscale lounge on Ossington St. in Toronto. According to Holt Renfrew's Creative Director, John Gerhardt, the concept is designed to serve as an antidote to the decidedly un-fun economic atmosphere we've been slogging through these last months. "Fashion has always loved glamour and when we first saw the spring collections in September we noticed a lot of shine, flashes of skin with undergarments as outer garments and suggestive details," he said about the inspiration.

If you miss the peep shows at 50 Bloor St. W this Saturday, you can catch performances on Saturday June 6 and/or Saturday June 20.

And it'll probably be one shopping trip your partner won't mind taking with you.
