The Ultra Re-invention

The Toronto nightclub tries something new.

Image

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.

LG Fashion Week in Toronto – Fall 2009

Review:

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.

A Mackage Coat Fits The Fashion Forward Woman

picture-251picture-29

picture-272

picture-26

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.
