Stephanie Seymour for The Room Fall/Winter 2015

Toronto, ON (August 8, 2015) – The Room at Hudson’s Bay is thrilled to announce iconic model Stephanie Seymour as the newest face for Fall/Winter 2015.

The campaign features 16 of the new season’s best looks from designers such as Alaïa, Anthony Vaccarello, Balmain, Giambattista Valli, Moschino, Proenza Schouler and Pucci.

The Room also tapped New-York based painter and sculptor Christopher Beckman to create six new canvases that are layered throughout the campaign.

“We were inspired by the sensual clothes of the season,” said Michael Crotty, EVP, Chief Marketing Officer, Hudson’s Bay. “We loved the contrast of pairing images of the legendary Stephanie Seymour against the canvases of an emerging artist to illustrate the love story between fashion and art and how they always have, and will continue to influence each other.”

Stephanie Seymour was shot in New York by photographer Mariano Vivanco and styled by Julia Von Boehm. Hair was created by Pasquale Ferrante and makeup was done by Glenn Marziali. The campaign will launch in the September issues of Vogue, FASHION and Elle Canada.

The Room is Canada’s premier destination for luxury fashion with locations in Toronto and Vancouver. Past campaigns have featured Linda Evangelista, Daria, Jessica Stam, Coco Rocha, Alana Zimmer, Anaïs Pouliot, Meghan Collison and Grace Mahary since The Room’s reinvention at Hudson’s Bay in 2009.
