The Ultra Re-invention

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.


Khabouth’s Ink is engaged in a range of prominent hospitality venues, including the Pantages Suites Hotel & Spa in Toronto (club) and The Beatles Revolution Lounge in the Mirage in Las Vegas.

To purchase your tickets f-listThis season’s much anticipated highlight:

– 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 nightclubsBrant House, Cheval, and Maro are the usual locations, with more scheduled on the way.

Join ULTRA SUPPERCLUB and NAM Models on March 17th, 2009 for their own after the show party.

Obtain a Dashing Derrière by Summer…

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.

Wise Women Staying Trick Proof

You have heard of the recession, have you?  So prepare yourself and be armed with the following knowledge, and for God’s sake’s ladies stop giving out your telephone number to every retailer out there for their “profile” lists.  We suspect they are selling them to whomever to make a buck.

And what about that “National Do Not Call List “?  Here is the scoop. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission launched the registry in September 2008 to great fanfare, promising that those who registered would see a drop in unwanted calls soliciting goods and service. Millions of Canadians have registered their names, home phone numbers and in some cases their cellphone numbers.

The problem is that the CRTC sells the registry list online.  In Toronto, you can get 600,000 names for $50. Telemarketers are required to subscribe to the list, paying an annual fee that depends on how often they choose to download updates. Those who violate the list by calling registrants may be fined up to $15,000 per call, but really… who is going to be checking for these violations?

The Various Flavors of Phone Scamming

  1. Another phone scam involves calls from “Prize Distribution Centers” that claim that you are the winner in sweepstakes or a lottery. Of course, you are not the only “winner” in the lottery and tens of thousands of people received the same call. The goal of the scheme is to entice you to make a relatively small payment (for example, shipping and handling fee, a sales tax) promising that a much bigger prize will be sent your way. Once the payment is sent, you will most likely not hear from the company again, and there will be no prize.
  2. Offers to Lower Your Interest Rates: The calls begin with a recording that makes a tempting offer to lower your credit-card interest rates. Then you are switched to a live agent who collects from you the credit card number and its expiration, name, address, and blah, blah, blah. The telemarketers have no intention of giving consumers better interest rates on their cards and instead use the information to commit identity theft.

    Again, tracing these scam artists is difficult: they spoof the caller ID information and use numerous VOIP accounts set up using stolen credit cards. The best thing to do is hang up, or buy an answering machine.

  3. Fake Bank Alert Messages: A fake message from a local bank says that your card is being suspended and that you need to call a toll free number to activate it. Of course, the toll free number does not belong to the bank and when you call they ask to verify your account information, which includes your name, date of birth, SSN, address, credit card number, etc. Once they have your personal information, they can use it to commit identity theft charging your existing credit cards, opening new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, writing fraudulent checks, or taking out loans in your name.
  4. Advanced Fee Loan Scams: In this scenario a telemarketer promises a consumer a loan or a credit card on very attractive terms. All the consumer has to do is just send a processing fee, or provide checking account info, and the offer was guaranteed. To make the offer sound even more attractive the scammers might throw in a free laptop, an iPod, or any other ‘hot item’. After the payment is made the company disappears, and the victim is often left with an empty checking account and NSF (Non-sufficient funds) bank fees.
  5. Free Listing at Yellow Pages:  This scam targets businesses. The caller says that he is from Yellow Pages and is calling to update their records. He proceeds by asking to confirm some basic information such as owner’s name, business phone number, address, and company name. Then they start billing the victim and only then the business owner realizes that it’s not a free listing and it was not Yellow Pages directory that called.

    The victims report that when they call to complain, the company plays the recorded conversation with the victim saying ‘Yes’ except that the caller is reading from a completely different script. The scammers replace one side of the conversation, making it sound as if the business owner agreed to a paid listing and a monthly fee.

  6. Bogus Fund-Raising Operations: Getting calls from scam artists posing as a charity and asking for donations. However, the charity is either non-existent or unaware of the solicitation.

    When it comes to donations, it’s best to never make donations over the phone.  Instead get the solicitors name, charity name and number, and call the Charity back if you choose to donate.  Google the Charity if you never heard of it.

  7. International Phone Calls Scam: It’s not always easy to tell if you’re dialing an international telephone number. In most cases, you have to dial 011 to begin a call to a foreign country. However, there are locations outside Canada where telephone numbers may look like domestic long-distance calls, but are actually international calls and international rates will apply.

    For example, 284 (British Virgin Islands), 242(Bahamas), 246(Barbados), 268(Antigua/Barbuda), 345(Cayman Islands), 664(Montserrat), 670 (U.S. commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands), 758(St. Lucia), 787(Puerto Rico), 767(Dominica), 809(Dominican Republic), 869(St. Kitts & Nevis), 868(Trinidad & Tobago), and 876(Jamaica) are all area codes in the Caribbean.

    The scheme: the scammer often leaves a message typically asking consumers to call what appears to be an ordinary long-distance telephone number to confirm a lottery prize, or to get information about a relative who has been injured in an accident. In each case, you are told to call the number right away. Since there are so many new area codes these days, people unknowingly return the calls. Once the number is dialed, the scam artist will try to keep you on the phone as long as possible to increase the charges. Unfortunately, when you get your phone bill, you might find that you’ve been charged $2500 per minute.

    If you are asked to call unknown number, Google the area code to check if it’s local.

  8. Cramming“: When monthly charges pop up on your telephone bill for optional services that you never authorized such as voice mail, paging, or club membership, it’s called “cramming.” You may be asked to return a missed call because it’s ‘Your lucky day’ and you’ve won a trip to Las Vegas. When the call is made, an automated system is activated and you are unknowingly enrolled in a club or program, and the charge is placed on your phone bill. The crammer might not even need to do anything except simply pick your phone number out of the blue and place charges on your bill through your local telephone company, claiming that you agreed to purchase some services.

    Look at your bill closely every month. Charges for optional services should be itemized and show the name of the company providing them and its phone number. If you did not authorize the services, call that number and insist that they be canceled and the charges removed from your bill.

    Also, consider putting a third party block on your phone service. It’s often free and it does not let any third party add charges to your phone bill.

  9. Slamming“: Slamming occurs when customers have their telephone service switched to a new carrier without their permission. You may receive a call from a telemarketer asking you to switch your long distance provider. Although you say you are not interested in switching, your long distance provider is changed anyway.
  10. Caller ID Spoofing: Generally, the scam works like this – you receive a call where total strangers pretend to be someone else and they back up their claims with spoofed Caller ID. The scam artists might then ask for money, demand a payment, request your personal information, addresses, or banking info. People report getting calls from long lost relatives, law firms, IRS, and government officials.
    • For example, in one scheme the caller identified himself as a court official and informed the victim that she is being prosecuted for failing to show up for Jury Duty. When the victim replies that this is the first time she hears that she was summoned for jury duty, the caller suggests that this may be a clerical error in the court system, and he asks for her full legal name, date of birth, and SIN to check the official summons files. The scam artist informs the victim that this data will be kept confidential, but it is required for cancellation of the outstanding arrest warrant.
    • You may receive a message where the caller claims to be from a government agency or some other organization with an official sounding name. The caller might claim that you will qualify to receive a “free grant” to pay for education costs, home repairs, home business expenses, or bills. In any case, the claim is the same: your application for a grant is guaranteed to be accepted, and you’ll never have to pay the money back.
    • Revenue Canada calls: In this scheme people receive phone calls from a caller who impersonates an employee. The caller asks the taxpayer for their SIN and bank account numbers, claiming that the RC needs the information to complete the processing of the tax payer’s payment. In another variation of the scheme, ‘an RC employee’ states that the check issued by RC has not been cashed, and they are calling to verify the individual’s bank account number.

    Hang up, find the official number of the organization and call to report the incident. Also, don’t send money – cash, check or money order – by courier, overnight delivery or wire to anyone who insists on immediate payment.

  11. Call Forwarding Scam: You may receive a call or message where the caller, requests you to dial a 2-digit code preceded or followed by the * or # key (such as *79 or 72#), and then another phone number to claim some prize. This procedure programs your telephone to forward your calls to another number, possibly a toll or long distance number. Scammers can then call your number, be forwarded to the number you dialed and place calls that are billed to your home telephone number.
  12. Telemarketing Travel Fraud: These scams have many variations and often involve travel packages that sound legitimate. You get a phone call and the caller is saying that you have been selected to receive a free trip. They will even leave messages on your answering machine with the sound of a cruise ship blowing its horn.  Skilled salespeople will tell you, to be eligible for the free trip, you must join their travel club. Later, you may find another fee is required to make your reservation. In the end, you may never get your “free” trip because your reservations are never confirmed or you must pay different fees, or comply with hard-to-meet or expensive/restrictive conditions.

    Check out the company with your provincial and local consumer protection office before you buy any product or service. Also, be wary of “great deals” and free offers from anyone. Few legitimate businesses can afford to give away products and services of real value especially now!

  13. Get Rich Quick Schemes: Scam artists lure both would-be entrepreneurs and people looking for home-based work with false promises of big earnings for little effort. The schemes often require an initial investment and involve selling items on Ebay, have your own online travel agency, supplement or vitamin business, making sales calls, and or recruiting you friends and family into your “business”. However, once the payment is sent the companies often disappear or even worse you can clearly see that they are a pyramid scheme and you will NOT make any money.

Back From the Sunny South…

Check out our travels to Cuba and Grand Cayman on our YouTube link (to the right).

A Winter Break...

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.

The Art of Todd White Fits the Fashionable

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.

A Mackage Coat Fits The Fashion Forward Woman




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.

Buy:  If you can get to Montreal you’ll save up to 50% off after Christmas up until June.  Otherwise wait for Holt Renfrew and Aritzia to have their January sell-offs on Mackage items.

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.

The best wines under $10 at the LCBO

Ten of the current favorites.  Spend liberally, your guests, and your taste buds will thank you.

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.

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.

This terrific buy shows what huge strides are being made in southern Italy, where native grapes are undergoing a renaissance.

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.

Montepulciano grapes deliver big wines; this one also has a long finish.

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.

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.

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.

A Reason to Party on Thursdays This Season…


Never a disappointment, schizophrenic Cheval is steadily proving to be a consistent party spot – once you get on the guestlist and arrive early (or at least KNOW somebody at the door)!  Every Thursday will be a different fashion event.  This Thursday, pre-shop at MODA and save $20% off, see their fashion show, and party at Cheval all in one evening.

Very worthwhile; the music is hot, and so are the people.

The Music That Moves Us…download it free!

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.

Happy listening!

Linda Loudermilk – The Eco Conscious Designer’s Style Offerings

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
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

Why We Love Winter in Toronto…

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.

Winter Coats 2008/2009

Flattering, warm enough, and practical for getting in and out of the car.

…and deliciously sexy shoes and boots that set off any outfit

Shoes and boots 2008/2009

Bring a couple pairs to the club, so that you can switch up when your feet start hurting!

…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.

So get them here:

The 2nd Annual Green Gala: Midnight In The Garden

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.

Presenting Sponsor Samsung, committed to environmentally sustainable business practices, will be accepting old cell phones at the event. Recycling cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions, keeps valuable material out of landfills and incinerators, and conserves natural resources. Be sure to bring your old cell phone in for safe and environmentally friendly disposal.

Guaranteed Seating available (limited tickets) $85 – SOLD OUT
Advance General Admission tickets are $75 – online sales is now closed.
Limited Tickets will be sold at the door for $100.

Sat, Nov 8th, 2008

Fashion Cares Now Coincides With Halloween

Fashion sCares, the Halloween Edition 2008.

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

Halloween Costumes and Christian Louboutin

Running out of time to make your Halloween ultimate costume?  Never fear, there are enough party stores in Toronto to give you what you need.

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!
