On a beautiful evening in June, the ballroom of the Ritz Carlton in downtown Toronto was turned into a beautiful Summer imaginarium for S/ Style & Fashion’s début party. We made our way around the spectacular room, sipping crisp champagne and taking in the beauty of the venue.
Blue and purple lights glowed behind the draped ceilings and lights twinkled around us. An immense raw bar was piled high with lobster, mussels and oysters on the half shell. Outside the main room, the incredible team at Revlon Professional demonstrated the styles that we would see later on the runway on the excited party goers. The room was buzzing with excitement and everyone was eagerly awaiting the first Ferragamo runway presentation in Canada.
The host of the evening and curator of the show, Suzanne Rogers, looked stunning in a long sleeved pale pink dress and custom clutch. Event planners Candice Chan and Alison Slight, whose luxury event company Candice and Alison Events created the Summer Imaginarium, looked chic and summer fresh. Ainsley Kerr, Jenna Bitove, Bianca Teixeira and David Dixon were also in attendance, rounding out Toronto’s Most Fashionable.
The Ferragamo Fall/Winter 2014 presentation was very glamorous. Our favourite looks were a high-necked wool plaid poncho over a pleated skirt with high heeled leather knee boots, and a grey Angora turtle neck sweater over a tan and cream chiffon skirt with black leather boots and a brown leather should bag. The hair and make up for the models was chic and minimalistic, with a focus on full eye brows to frame the face. The manicured were the opposite, long and full of texture and pattern.
After the show, the energy stayed high as an artist painted interpretations of the recent cover of the S/ Style Magazine and the entire range of Ferragamo bags was presented for guest to touch and hold. And speaking of bags, the gift bags for the evening contained enough fabulous Revlon products to see us through the Fall/Winter season.
Thank You to the amazing team at Revlon Professionals for the invitation, and to Fiorio on Cumberland for styling Toronto contributor Jessica’s hair for the event.
