A Reason to Party on Thursdays This Season…

Cheval_Thurs

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.

Linda_L

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:

CRYSTAL 09 NEW YEARS EVE AT THE ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM

NEW YEAR’S EVE FALLS ON A WEDNESDAY THIS YEAR AND IT’S
TIME TO CHOOSE YOUR PARTY DESTINATION…

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

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

Usher is performing in Toronto at Kool Haus, and the after party promises to be a sexy affair.  The One Night Stand Ladies Only concert tour kicked off this weekend in Atlantic City.  For this tour, Usher has been given a fashion makeover by DSquared2 with clothing ranging from super crisp tuxedos, to a silk robe and slippers!  The promoters of this event at This is London say he is going to be hosting it.  That remains to be seen.  However, with DJ Chris La Roque spinning Mash Up House, R&B and Rock, you are guaranteed to have a great time!
