Luminato & L’Oreal: Partners in Creativity

By | Appearances, Event Coverage, Fashion, Inspiration, Model Stuff | No Comments

Luminato 6 Kicked off with the Yves St Laurent Opening Night party. I had the honor of hosting the interactive ipad activation where your ipad drawing was projected onto the wall of the party for all to see. All night long we were creating amazing designs on the wall; storytelling, inspiring, – Some people were shy to draw so I drew a lot. I was drawing doodles at request, advertising YSL L’homme libre  & Opium samples on hand for party guests. I also doodled to tell partygoers about  ‘party perks’ like the cosmetic station for a complimentary make-up session. The energy at Opening night was incred. Great food, great smells, great people!

We looked great.  🙂

 

Luminato delivered an awesome creative Line up. See Here.  Music, plays, screenings, shows, visuals: a lot to see and do at Luminato 6. Luminato, Toronto’s Festival of Arts and Creativity, was born out of the cultural and creative energy of the city of Toronto. A bit of background: On June 1, 2007, the first Luminato event was launched with Pulse Front: Relational Architecture 12, a light installation commissioned from Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. Festival supporters gathered along the harbourfront to witness the city skyline illuminated by the heart beats of the audience. Over four years in the making, Luminato was ready to be unveiled to Toronto and the world.

All day long I was stationed at L’Oreal Paris on festival grounds in David Pecaut Square. Pecaut Square is a large concrete-and granite-clad plaza located in front of Metro Hall in TorontoCanada.

Luminato has become one of the preeminent arts festivals in North America, having commissioned over 50 new works of art, and featured 6,500 artists from 35+ countries. Here are some of my photos from the event. Here are some of my favorite memories. The concert photo is from when Rufus Wainwright took the stage.

L’Oreal made hundreds of ladies and gentlemen happy by offering an exclusive give-away for anyone who ‘Likes’ L’Oreal Paris Canada on Facebook. Follow their exclusive coverage of the Luminato Festival, including daily beauty tips by experts Eddie Malter and Eric Del Monaco. All day long ladies were treated to complimentary beauty sessions from L’Oreal Paris’ lead Canadian stylists & makeup artists. Ladies were also treated to a gift card to online shopping empire Well.ca, where they could pick from the Summer’s hottest trends in Lipstick & Nail polish. This is every lady’s dream!!

I love our dream team. #DREAMTEAM. Here is Helena Chillaxing 🙂

We are a fun bunch!!

World Wide Short Film Festival Ad …features ME!

By | Appearances, Model Stuff, Photoshoots | No Comments

Cheryl @ STRUTT Central rang me suggesting I audition for a role. This one called for a ‘sexy blonde’. The audition consisted of sitting in a dentist chair.Easy enough! 🙂

After getting a call back I was delighted to be working with Philip Rostron & team to create a total masterpiece which would be splashed onto the pages of The Grid TO in preparation for the World Wide Short Film Festival June 5-10. The Grid is a weekly city magazine and daily website providing “a fresh, accessible voice for Toronto,”.

How exciting!

The idea was to create a series of cheeky ads to promote the upcoming World Wide Short Film Fest. The CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival (WSFF) is the premier venue for the exhibition and promotion of short film in North America. Taking place in early June, the WSFF is dedicated to celebrating the quality and creative range of short films. With annual submissions that surpass 4000, expert programmers specially select 250 shorts from more than 80 countries for five days of public screenings.

Donning a custom tailored medical jacket with sky high heels, I had a blast on set. Philip is a totally awesome director/photographer. Hilarity ensued as we practiced different styles & looks. The finished product looks pretty awes…

Check it out!

Let me know what you think below!

World Mastercard Fashion Week … My Faves!

By | Appearances, Event Coverage, Fashion, Runway | No Comments

All week long I attended World Mastercard Fashion Week at David Pecaut Square located in the heart of downtown Toronto at King and John. I was taking in all the Fall 2012 fashions from Adrian Wu, Laura Siegel, Chloe Comme Parris and Martin Lim shows.  Chloe Commes Parris showed witchy ensembles with lots of heavy black and Salem-inspired hair buns. Martin Lim was all about lines and dimensions, sticking to one or duo tones locked in strict square and rectangular shapes for his pieces.

Toronto Fashion Week (#TFW) blew up Toronto’s Twitterverse. Although we aren’t talking  New York or Milan Fashion Week,  Toronto impresses with beautiful people. I had such a blast taking in the incredible fashions. H&M was highly popular. Wednesday’s schedule was jam packed with incredible previews from Bustle & Melissa Nepton wildly popular Joe Fresh (9PM).

Korhani Home kicked off T.O. Fashion Week with some homely designed fabrics…

For those fashionistas unable to score tickets to the week-long event, were still able to watch the spectacle from King St. W  thanks to floor to ceiling windows along one of the studio walls.

This year other changes at Fashion Week included a brand new moniker,  from ‘LG Fashion Week’  to the now named ‘World Mastercard Fashion Week’.  Fashion week is pure FASHION heaven for fashion lovers and designers alike. Whether you’re looking to see or be seen, World MasterCard Fashion Week is the place to be as some of the biggest names in Canadian fashion (and from all over the world) gather to showcase their Fall 2012 collections.

One of my favorite shows was Bustle…

Primarily because I think Stacey Mckenzie is a LEGEND! She is OH so sweet in person too.

What an amazing week I had.  Here is me posing with the SL Class 😉
