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.

Show Love was the theme, and the gathering had, fashionistas, designers, models, and style enthusiasts going wild.

See all the videos here , thanks to the U of Toronto students, Chris and Jessica of  “Istoica “.

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.

March 16th to 21st, 2009

The theme for the 10th year is SHOW LOVE.

For schedule visit LG Fashion Week
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.
