a word from… January 10 sponsors
A word from… is a monthly news post contributed by the sponsors who support Final Fashion. All of my sponsors are intrepid entrepreneurs with a lot of personality, and I encourage you to check out what they are doing and making. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please get in touch!
Nina from Toronto Fashion Incubator says…
Guilty Pleasures is a fabulous fashion + food one-day, annual event that takes place during the City of Toronto’s Winterlicious Festival at The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen St. W.). The Drake offers brunch to 350 fashion & beauty-minded patrons who enjoy an exclusive consumer sale featuring locally designed products from TFI accessory and apparel designers. The silent auction component that we introduced last year was highly successful, 100% proceeds went to community programming offered by the Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI), our non-profit organization. This year’s event continues to include the DaLish Beauty Bar where attendees can receive mini-makeovers and beauty touch-ups, mini informal fashion shows and door prizes (for brunch patrons only, the brunch is sold out). What’s new is that the designer sale & silent auction are open to the public all day from 9am to 4pm.
Ashley from Shopgirls says…
Shopgirls is proud to announce it here, this superb blog, first: there is a NEW and FABULOUS Shopgirls Blog! You’ll notice our gorgeous website doesn’t really have lots of room for story-telling, and telling stories about our artists and designers is what we’re all about! Thus, we created a blog to compliment our main site. Expect mini interviews with our artists, notes about new items in the shop, commentary on what’s happening in art and design around us, and much more! Come check us out and come often!
