When Fashion week rolled a around this year I was greatly excited to see what my two favorite designers had been up too. We walked into the newly revamped Acadian Loft, greeting us at the door was some Stoli cocktail. So many celebrities like Sarah Gadon, Leesa Butler Zaib Skaikh (from little Mosk on the Parries) Gabrielle Miller and Tara Spencer Nainn from Corner gas. The lovely Jeanne beker of Fashion Television and you can’t forget the 3 tall dark glasses of water Jully black, Rosey Edeh, Suzane Boyed.
As the show started and the models came out looking like a sci-fi themed looking like Aliens which was the theme of the whole show. The curtains all opened bringing the sky line and light in which made it more magical or a little more sci-fi.
The colours coming down the runway were so vibrant like Greens, Blues and reds. Its edgy elegance, signature silk jersey fluidly draped dresses, very sexy and sleekly. The show ended in over 20 amazing black tailored pieces and dresses. The evening was amazing as I stayed back very late and danced my ass off with the many people that decided to stay back it was a great time!
BEHIND THE SCENES WITH GRETA CONSTANTINE!! Stoli Vodka Presents: Greta Constantine – From Sketch to Runway
We were invited to Trump Towers my Kirk and Steven of Greta Constantine for their launch of Sketch to Runway. This short film was showing us what it’s like from Kirk and Stephen getting their collection ready for the runway. It was passed on the collection 2012 Fall/Winter 2012 so check it out if you have not done so already!
Absolute Vodka launched its 2011 limited-edition bottle of Absolute Mode on Dec 1st, 2011. The launch was held at Malaparte (TIFF Bell Lightbox), a museum like exhibit featuring personal accessories and unique one of kind clothing from Canadian style icons. Some of the Icons who had clothing on display were Bernadette Morra, Liza Tant, Stacy Kimel and of course Jeanne Beker who curated the evening. Jeanne’s contributions included a vintage Chanel Dress given to her by Karl Lagerfeld. She even had a cocktail named after her that evening that was called Absolute Jeanne which was quiet yummy! The most memorable piece of the evening was a dress and jacket pairing in dark blue velvet with golden beading made for Stacy Kimel by Lee McQueen, which she wore at his funeral. There was also the program from his funeral displayed at the foot of the mannequin. The event went past the 9pm ending time with amazing beats from the DJ and enjoyable cocktails which made this mixer with the Toronto Fashion Elite all the more worthwhile.
These are my Designer picks of the final day!

Here is a little peak of LG Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011! It was a great season with lots of laughs and craziness behind the scenes. It was my favorite season yet with a lot of great memories. Hope you enjoy some of these behind the curtain pictures and more!
During LGFW Fall/Winter 2011 I got to meet Deborah Cox and hang out with her for the evening, she was such a pleasure to meet.I had a really great evening and looking up to her amazing talent as a artist since I was young just made this experience out of this world. She was there for the Attitude show by Jay Manuel which was a great display of his talent. We had a great time backstage and it was like a childhood dream fulfilled. Hope you enjoy the pictures, until next time.
