a word from… May 10 sponsors
A word from… is a monthly news post contributed by the sponsors who support Final Fashion. All of these 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!

The average person walks 3,000 to 5,000 steps a day, and ladies that is a lot of foot work in our heels! Beginning Thursday, May 27, Che Bella Spa (10 Castle Knock Road, Toronto) will transform into Red Door every Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 7 and 11 p.m. to exclusively offer blissful evening foot massages for your tired tootsies. The 45-minute treatment includes a hot foot soak and a tranquilizing therapeutic massage of the feet and legs, and retails for $55 per person, $100 per couple and $185 for a group of four.
It’s a perfect setting for bridal showers, a night out with friends or a romantic date night, and with its recent renovations Red Door clients will experience a beach-inspired serenity in the classic Victorian space. Looking for a relaxing night out? Book your appointment today at www.red-door.info or (416) 485-1225.

Vanessa from 18karat says…
Spring time brings new jewellery items lovingly created by local artists into 18karat. All are characterized by vivid colours and textures, perfect for updating your wardrobe for the warm and sunny months ahead. Inna Gorshtein from Ingo Jewelry has really begun to push her wire-work and has started to incorporate some very unusual gems into her collection. Pepe Fernandez from Splendor Jewellery is continuing to blend ancient Mokume techniques with textured silver – treating silver wire as if it were cotton thread. Darlene Martin from Bijouxbead has continued to create pieces that are unique stories in and of themselves – this collection focuses on beautifully cool blues and silvers. These talented artists only make up a portion of the locally produced work currently available at 18Karat, so make sure to drop by and view them for yourself.
Darlene of Bijouxbead says…
I recently had the good fortune of attending a one week amazing marketing course at Queen’s Executive Development Centre. This was a full scholarship awarded to me after being featured on the CBC’s entrepreneurial program Fortune Hunters. I was one of ten people in the course, and the only one with her own business. To say I was intimidated was an understatement, and it took me over a year to commit to going.Once I was able to get past the language I was completely unfamiliar with, like CRM, value propositions, market segmentation and brand positioning, I started to realize that marketing was really common sense, but with a very important caveat; that in order for a business to really be successful, you need a strategic plan backed up by metrics. Once I understood this, my mind started racing so incredibly fast that I really couldn’t help myself. I know the people around me saw it too.
