Scotiabank's nuit blanche is coming

On Saturday night (October 4, 2008) scotiabank's 3rd annual nuit blanche events happen in Toronto from 6:52pm to sunrise. I love their description "a free all-night contemporary art thing. One night only. All night long."

It will be a chance to be part of a massive and sometimes interactive art and installation show in Canada's largest city - you just have to stay awake and enjoy the creativity. Check out their website at http://www.scotiabanknuitblanche.ca/home.shtml.

Besides the art I hope to see the zombies which are supposed to gather on College Park (you can even participate and get a zombie makeover) which also reminds me that the 2008 Toronto Zombie Walk is scheduled for 3:30pm (meet at 3pm in the pit) Sunday October 19, 2008 starting at Trinity Bellwoods Park.

Fashion Cares 2008 - Media Launch

For pictures, videos and a review of the 2008 Toronto Fashion Cares presents: Fashion sCares event held November 1, 2008 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre please go to my blog post here.


Models greet the media at Brant House.

Toronto, get ready for Fashion Cares 2008: Fashion sCares! The AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT) brought out some beautiful models with Fashion Cares' Chair Michael King and genius Creative Director Phillip Ing for the media launch of Canada's largest AIDS fundraiser to be held November 1st, 2008 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The warm up event was held at Brant House within the Fashion District of downtown Toronto, Ontario and as an invited blogger I joined mainstream media for an up close look at the spectacular event that will be Fashion Cares.

The roster of musical acts and celebrity hosts was presented which included director David Furnish as host (with many celebrity co-hosts) and recording artists Katy Perry (I kissed a girl) and Kreesha Turner (Don't call me baby). I just want to say MAC Viva Glam!

Some of the many camera crews on hand for the evening.

The City's biggest costume party of the year will move away from their recent detour at the historic distillery district back to the Convention Centre and from a spring show to the 22nd installment just after Halloween. The timing of the show has certainly influenced this year's theme - Fashion Cares Presents Fashion sCares. Fantastic clashes of haute couture and halloween craziness will make it harder to keep your eyes off the models as they compete with the hip see and be seen crowd attending the party. I found the models and their outfits were fascinating.

Here is a Youtube video I made featuring bonus pictures, video clips of the models and music by the group No, Really.

While models worked hard, so did the bartenders and the DJ.

And there was a great crowd of media, sponsors and supporters attending the function and the after party.

We say hi to Fashion Designer Andre Gorokov who will be participating in Fashion sCares.

And we say goodnight to the media launch of Fashion sCares and look forward to the upcoming Fashion Event of the Year - get your tickets and see and be seen.

Cayuga NCATS August 30, 2008

I join a Canadian Tire rep for a picture in the winners circle during the NASCAR Canaian Tire Series race held at Cayuga on August 30, 2008.

During the race the lights on the track went out three times and each time the race was halted. During one such lull Joe Hamilton took my picture as we hang in the pits.
The real winner of the race was #9 Mark Dilley.
