It was perfect weather for the first official day of summer on Sunday June 21st, which was also the final day for the annual Polo for Heart 2015 games at the Toronto Polo Club, with Canada vs. Ireland. I was excited to go , not only because I’d never had the chance before, but also to take in the duchess-like ‘street’ style, and dapper men’s sartorial suits, as polo is known as “the sport of kings.”
The best way to open a fashion week is by honouring those who have impacted the industry in a big way. The Fashion Group International (FGI) knows how to do it right, as they did just that with their luncheon on Monday, March 23rd, when they celebrated the many achievements and successes of Bonnie Brooks by awarding her with FGI’s International Award of the Year.
The Fashion Group International (FGI) event, Making Scents: The Art and Business of Prestige Fragrance at the Thompson Hotel on November 25th, left a lasting impression. The night was informative, and enjoyable as specialists were on site to discuss how a perfume is created, followed by a panel discussion to talk about the business aspects such as marketing and how to successfully launch a perfume.
