The Toronto nightclub tries something new.
Beirut-born Charles Khabouth is not subtle about the newly re-invented ULTRA. The CEO of Toronto-based Ink has done it again with the recently reopened restaurant by day, and nightclub after dark.
The new ULTRA, designed by Toronto’s Munge Leung, has a dark, hellish and somewhat crazed vibe with black and red as the dominant colors, and gigantic images of imposing roosters loom over 400 plus diners or clubbers. Photographer Stephen Green-Armytage created the threatening bird pictures. Partners Alessandro Munge and Sai Leung were also in charge of the award-winning design of the original ULTRA five years ago.
European sports menswear Dirk Bikkembergs Fashion show at Ultra March 19th, 2009

Show Love was the theme, and the gathering had, fashionistas, designers, models, and style enthusiasts going wild.
W4W Toronto highlights:
Lucian Matis , offered up a very commercial, but wearable collection that was whimsically a bit over the top. Also, interesting debut for Jamaican menswear designer Carlton Brown, dancehall music subbed out in the video for copyright reasons. Linda Lundstrom has come all the way back with a lovely collection.
– The Project Runway Final – live inside the tent on Thursday. As you may or may not know, W4W Toronto has not really been feeling the uncouth tent set-up at Nathan Phillips Square these past few seasons.
However, with runway shows costing designers up to $20,000 to produce, some labels are looking for more inexpensive ways of showing their collection during this economic crisis. Hence a few labels are opting to show in nightclubs . Brant House, Cheval, and Maro are the usual locations, with more scheduled on the way.

Tracy Anderson: Is the hot Hollywood trainer-of-choice. Anderson is a former dancer whose Pilates and aerobics-inspired workout has garnered fans like Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna. Anderson also offers personalized programs according to student’s muscle structure. Two of her videos are highly recommend, but skip her dance DVD which is very difficult to follow even for seasoned dancers, and check out her awesome butt routine she sent Gwyneth for New Years: see video
Words from Tracy:
1) The biggest no-no is often the type of exercise people are doing. People don’t understand how manipulative the muscles are. The type of exercise they choose greatly effects what they’re going to physically look like.
2) Of course I believe in my method, which focuses on targeting the accessory muscles to pull in the large muscle groups and give you a tiny dancer body. I designed a machine called the “hybrid body reformer” – over 2,800 moves on the machine hit your muscles from all different angles and rotations. If you aren’t able to come to my studio or do the cardio DVD, then the best advice I can give is to stay away from repetitive motions like running, lifting weights in conventional rotations, stair climbers, etc. A form of circuit training would be much better. I am a huge fan of cardio on the trampoline; it’s more effective than running and is much better on your joints. Make a disk of your favorite songs for 40 minutes, get a mini-trampoline and jump like mad. Use your arms and dance on the trampoline. If you’re a woman never lift over 3 pounds.
3) NEVER let yourself go. Working out is like brushing your teeth – you just do it. If you’ve let yourself go, you must start moving. Get really good at cardio; watch what you eat. Then, once you can do 40 minutes a day of cardio straight, you can eat what you want. While you are watching what you eat I, am a fan of milk or soymilk in the morning with berries. Chicken or turkey for lunch with cucumbers and tomatoes and grilled fish with brown rice and spinach for dinner for example. Then, you also need to deal with reengineering your muscular structure – some sit-ups with your legs out straight in front of you then lifting one foot at a time, lifting three-pound weights in many different ways. I love Grande Pliés in second position for your butt and legs.
Check out our travels to Cuba and Grand Cayman on our YouTube link (to the right).
It was the second time visiting Cuba. Holguin, five years ago was a nice resort town for the sleep deprived, but this time Varadero and Havana was the spot for the action. Things have changed, the value for the money, the people, and the serious lack of toilet paper in any washroom facility outside of your hotel. Who ever heard of tipping 1 CUC Peso ($1.20CDN) for two sheets of low-grade fanny wipes? The people on the streets can seriously hustle you for all kinds of ridiculous things. But in a land where a doctor makes only $50 Pesos a month, you can’t really knock their hustle. Read and watch the videos on our YouTube site.
Grand Cayman never disappoints even after the 5th visit. It truly is paradise for visitors with enough money and friend connections to enjoy the glorious luxuries the island can offer. Check out the video on YouTube.
Yes, from the choke hold of Communism to the extremes of Capitalism. The irony of it all isn’t lost on us.

Call now, this romantic winter retreat is sure to be sold out because VD is on a Saturday this year.
Less than an hour Northwest of Downtown Toronto, the historic Millcroft Inn & Spa is a refreshing blend of rural serenity and sophisticated hospitality. This former wool knitting mill is one of the most congenial getaways in southern Ontario, thanks to its historic ambiance, rural setting and dining room (under chef Roberto Fracchioni). There are 12 kilometres of trails winding through 100 acres of wooded grounds, millponds and gardens. The two-storey croft suites feature wood-burning fireplaces and patios. The ample spa offers 17 treatment areas, including the Ofuro room, with its Japanese soaking tub, and a couple’s room with a double tub. An indoor pool, whirlpool, and cross country skis, snowshoes are all available as well.
To accommodate busy schedules, the inn offers two Valentine’s week getaway packages, one for a single night (available February 11 to 15), the other for two nights (February 9 to 18). Both packages offer a Valentine’s tasting menu in the main room—featuring seared sea scallops, port-poached beef tenderloin, and mascarpone and cherry empanadas—as well as a bottle of bubbly, breakfast the next morning and a $200 spa credit. One-night package starts at $337.50 per person; two nights from $238 per person, per night.

Todd White is taking the world by storm. His instantly recognizable work has been snapped up by Catherine Zeta Jones, Michael Douglas, Larry King, Hugh Hefner, Vin Diesel, Drew Carey and Eric McCormack to name a few.
White began as a painter under the watchful eyes of his mother and grandmother, both accomplished artists in Texas. His first paying job as an artist, however, was at Warner Bros studios on the popular series Tiny Toons. White soon after became the character designer for the internationally renowned cartoon, Sponge Bob Square Pants.
The impact is apparent in his paintings; White’s “Rat-pack meets Picasso” style results, in part, from his desire to reveal his characters innermost thoughts and emotions on their faces. His scenes of Nightlife, Hollywood, and Women indeed bring to life each character’s essence.
The artist was at the Liss Gallery in Toronto earlier this year, and now he has really picked up some steam in the fashion world. Let’s hope you can get your hands on an original before his works sell for astronomical prices.

Mackage is a Quebec, Canada success story. Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy are the design duo behind this label. Having started their fashion careers at the young age of 20, their talent, eye for trend- setting looks, and attention to fit and detail, continues to impress all.
The Mackage line is well-known to fashionistas in Canada and US for its durability (you do get what you pay for) as outerwear and for fantastically cut leathers. Mackage has no age. It is made for the fashion-forward, svelte woman. The line is renowned for creating silhouettes that are sexy, sleek and highly sought after.
We at W4W Toronto own several jackets and coats by Mackage, and as they get more loved up every year, they look and feel even better. They are a Canadian label that oozes style. An edgy, yet classy alternative to the oh so staid winter coat and the superior tayloring and fit make a Mackage purchase worth every penny.
Check out all their gorgeous outerwear on their website.
Chanel presented the Karl Lagerfeld cruise collection with a fashion show that replicated an event held in Miami in May. It marked the designer’s first major Canadian runway show in 10 years, and served to benefit the SickKids Foundation.
More than 600 guests attended the Chanel fashion show at the Direct Energy Centre’s Heritage Court on November 30th to benefit HealthyKids International, a new initiative by the SickKids Foundation at the Hospital for Sick Children, dedicated to improving children’s health around the world . Mafalda Caruso, CTV’s executive director of special events, worked with the luxury retailer to replicate the presentation of Karl Lagerfeld’s 2008-09 Chanel resort collection, which was held poolside at Miami’s Raleigh Hotel in May.
There was a live auction for Chanel vintage items, of which the highest bidder reportedly paid $40,000 for a 1955 Chanel purse! The show included 35 models, six of which were local, and what looked like the entirety of Chanel’s 2008/2009 cruise collection. A runway-length pool of blue, six inches deep, was erected in the middle of the dining hall, and topped with a meandering black path similar to the one in Miami. Projected blue ripples floated across enormous screens on the walls to give that watery, poolside “Miami” feeling.
The models wore knitted beach cover-ups with curved sleeves, pastel-striped swimwear, pink tie-dye logo T-shirts, jackets pairing vinyl and tweed, and one stunning white dress that had the midsection material removed to revealing a bed of red roses. Just watch the show on Chanel’s site and you’ll get the idea.

Last year, our government controlled LCBO came under fire for its increasingly pricey stock, including bottle surcharges. This holiday season they have stocked the shelves with brand new libations priced under $10.00.
LA PUERTA 2007 SHIRAZ (Famatina Valley, Argentina)
The New World crossover style combines Aussie lusciousness with the peppery, smoky flavours of the Rhône.
FINCA FLICHMAN 2007 MISTERIO MALBEC (Mendoza, Argentina)
From a star winery in Mendoza, this young gun over-delivers with malbec’s characteristic floral–wild berry fruit wrapped up in smoky oak and minty sage notes.
ROCCA VENTOSA 2007 TREBBIANO (Abruzzi, Italy)
This terrific buy shows what huge strides are being made in southern Italy, where native grapes are undergoing a renaissance.
CONO SUR 2007 VIOGNIER (Chile)
Viognier is a spicy floral variety rooted in southern France, but the organically minded winemakers at Cono Sur have fashioned a stunning example for under $10.
MONTALTO 2007 PINOT GRIGIO (Sicily, Italy)
Sicily’s southern, sunny climate has delivered a very ripe, fleshy style of pinot grigio with flavours of honey, peach and fresh bread.
TOLLO 2005 COLLE SECCO MONTEPULCIANO D’ABRUZZO (Abruzzi, Italy)
Montepulciano grapes deliver big wines; this one also has a long finish.
CASAL THAULERO 2007 SANGIOVESE (Abruzzi, Italy)
You can buy a case for under $100, and you should, because you’ll go through it quickly. Full bodied, soft and spicy on the palate.
DUNAVÁR 2006 MUSCAT OTTONEL (Hungary)
Modern winemaking has revived the quality of muscat ottonel, a central European grape variety that had virtually disappeared from the LCBO’s shelves.
CONO SUR 2007 MERLOT (Chile)
So well made for so little money. Part of this tasty wine’s secret is the cabernet and syrah in the blend. It’s fruity and mellow enough for all tastes but has stuffing, as well.
MASI 2007 MODELLO DELLE VENEZIE (Venetia, Italy)
One of the best whites under $10 at the LCBO. Blends garganega (the soave grape) with pinot grigio and pinot blanc to create an aromatic white.
Check them out in detail at the online LCBO product search.

Very worthwhile; the music is hot, and so are the people.
What do we listen to? Anything that has a really good beat, something we can dance to. Not techno, not hard rock, nothing that requires the ingestion of large amounts of drugs (or even small amounts) to appreciate. A mix of rock, rap, hip/hop, house, a little reggae, and perhaps even small doses of soca infused into a hot set by a knowledgeable DJ can really move a crowd. And if it moves the crowd, it will move us. Our favorite DJ’s who play these fabulous sets are DJ AM (Adam Goldstein), Samantha Ronson, and Toronto’s very own Chris LaRoque. At the end of the night if we still haven’t gotten enough of a musical fix, there is always the afterparty for all the beautiful people at RAW UNDERGROUND from 2a:m until 7:30a:m on a Friday or Saturday. At RAW you can hear everything we are giving you on our free download. Yes, download 24 of our favorite tracks for free here, while the link lasts.
Linda Loudermilk is passionate about the earth and its people, and she is making her mark on the eco-movementwith stylish products that inspire people to “think about the world and how we can make it a better place for all inhabitants”.
Many years ago she began researching and experimenting with products that were sustainable while still modeling on the runways of Paris. What Loudermilk discovered was a world of design that could be blended with eco-responsibility in an practical, yet exciting way.
She trademarked the term “luxury eco™”, becoming the first designer to create a luxury+eco lifestyle brand under one umbrella. Guilt-free organic fibers and eco conscious fabrics are what her line of clothing are all about.
We love Linda Loudermilk’s Fall 2008 Collection
A sexy lace dress, fitted black suit, and an event dress. Makes all those hours in the gym and watching
what we eat totally worth it.
Not available in Toronto, but you can get it in Quebec:
Guaranteed to be a unique New Year’s experience. Plan ahead, plan early, and purchase
your Royal Ontario Museum New Years tickets ASAP to ensure entry. This party promises
to have a more mature, “sophisticated”, and stylish party crowd. It will be where the
Rockwood Monday’s, Lobby Wednesday’s, Ultra Friday’s, and This is London Saturday’s
crowd go to ring in their New Year.
This event will sell out, as will many of the NY Eve parties W4W Toronto will recommend.
Don’t be a last minute girl and then get stuck partying with the lackluster bar crowds. They
don’t know how to dress, or dance and you’ll bring in the New Year with some schlep talking
your ear off.
Music: Classics, House, R&B
Yes it gets cold in Toronto, but not colder than a New York winter, and certainly not as blustery cold as Chicago. So with that in mind, the night life never ends for those willing to step out in their stylish best.
We love winter in Toronto because we get to wear fabulous looking coats, the following being prime examples.
…and deliciously sexy shoes and boots that set off any outfit
…and of course they are all in your basic black! The only color for winter that matters. These pieces are worth the money, because you will able to style and profile in them for several winters.

The Green Gala: Midnight In The Garden
The second annual Green Gala will once again feature 10 of Canada’s top fashion designers each creating 3 outﬁts made from sustainable fabrics, coming together in a memorable fashion show. Our first Gala was labeled the “Greenest Fashion Event in Canada”, and we will once again be taking great measures to reduce our eco-footprint and lay claim to this title with this year’s theme “Midnight In The Garden”.
From the cosmetics and hair care products used on models, to our printing process, food and beverages, décor elements, lighting and energy source, The Green Gala aims to inspire other event planners to lighten their footprint, while at the same time shining a spotlight on the potential that sustainable fabrics have to make evening wear and couture clothing.
The event will be bolstered by a silent auction, live performance by Tara MacLean, and will also feature media personalities and celebrities modeling the clothing on the catwalk! This year’s event will be hosted by MuchMusic VJ Hannah Simone.
See event highlights for more details.

Laguna Beach Denim – Bullzeye – The only store in Canada selling
The 22nd annual gala (in support of the AIDS Committee of Toronto) Fashion Cares, aptly called Fashion sCares is set for Saturday, November 1, 2008. It will be a Halloween-themed extravaganza “imagine Haute Couture meets Halloween meets Paris is Burning and you’ve got an idea of where we’re going,” says Michael King, the 2008 Chair.
Fashion Cares is a mecca for the cross-dressing, ambi-sexual, freakazoid. To be a straight married person in this context, one would wonder if you somehow go yourselves lost.
This years show promises a marked difference from the one that took place in May 2008 at the ill-equipped Distillery District, and left many in attendance dissatisfied, chilly, and confused.
The event returns to the Metro Convention Centre and the $125.00/person tickets can be obtained here.
- Cocktail Reception and Silent Auction starting at 8PM
- Show (Starts at 10PM)
- After Party at Metro Toronto Convention Centre
- Access to the After Party at Circa at a discounted rate
What about the ultimate fantasy costume? What if you got a dominatrix outfit and paired it with these Christian Louboutin killer heels?
The super stiletto heel, dominatrix spikes, and polished black leather are the hottest item not available in time for Halloween, and not for those without celebrity and financial status. The Rodarte Christian Louboutin’s were featured in black, gold, and white (all with the trademark red soles) during Rodarte’s 2008 fall fashion show. No word on when they will be available online if at all, but one can only dream of the possibilities of next year’s Halloween outfit.
I’m sure Ms. Jackson already has her outfit together!
W4W Toronto is no stranger to Muzik nightclub. We have continued to enjoyed the ambiance, energy, and aura of exclusivity, month after month at this surprisingly busy venue. We are looking forward to spending a VIPish Halloween at this massive complex, and bringing you an update (or at least pictures).
