a week’s worth – 01-05-09
A Week’s Worth documents what I did all week – a little peek into the life of a fashion illustrator and blogger.
I started out this week at Vidal Sassoon, hair modelling in a master class. I’ve been in to get my hair cut for classes before, but this was something entirely different. They were presenting a themed hair collection based on the work of designer Anthony Price and artist Philip Castle. It was a big deal.
There were even some illustrations in the brief of clothing designs inspired by Price’s work.
Wednesday I went to a cocktail event at Browns shoe store celebrating Italian shoes and mingling with friends and FASHION lovelies. They had a big wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano that I indulged in a lot… its been a while since I could afford to buy my favourite cheese. What a treat!
After that Andrew took me down to Kensington Market to check out the Deadly Nightshades trunk sale. You can currently order pieces from their Fall/Winter 09 line whether you’re a consumer or a retailer. Their stuff is tricked out, super stylish, organic bicycle gear for cool girls. Get in touch with them for more information.
Last night Anita took me as her +1 to the Innovators Ball at the Ontario Science Centre. Thanks to LG for the tickets! I’ve never been to a black-tie event before, I wore my dress from Fashion Crimes and a real flower in my hair from Andrew.
There was a cool mix of people there and the surprise of the night for me was meeting Matt from Nirvana the Band the Show! I am a big fan of the show, its a great sendup of the music scene in Toronto and a classic buddy comedy too. Here he is on the right, posing with Anita and a photographer I don’t think I met? Anyway, its a funny picture.
Those were some highlights from my week, how was yours?
