Marking the unofficial beginning of the 40th Toronto International Film Festival, TIFF’s most fashionable came out to celebrate the release of Toronto Life’s Stylebook in the Grand Ballroom and Grand Salon of the Trump International Hotel. We were in attendance to give you an exclusive look in to the prestigious event.
Guests were welcomed by the marquee lights of “Toronto Life” with portraits of the Stylebook’s honourees brought to life in unique ways throughout the spacious two-storey soiree.
For the ladies, the lower level featured an Aveda Beauty Lounge where guests received hair and makeup touch ups on their way over to the snap pics in the photobooth as well as visit displays of the finest crystalline jewellery in the Swarovski lounge.
For the man’s man, the Loding Shoe Shine station gave guests a chance to kick up their feet and have their shoes professionally shined while sipping samples of Revelstoke Whiskey. Upstairs, a John Varvatos Lounge, with a rock aesthetic where guests could relax with their signature cocktail and sample the line of fragrances.
With no shortage of bars throughout the party on each floor, the DJ spun the latest tunes on the dance floor. The party was complete with a juice bar; candy spread, donut display, balloon wall and the Infiniti Sketch Artist Lounge.
Sending guests away with spectacular swag in hand, the highly anticipated event sets the tone for the city’s fall social season.
