From Backstage to the Catwalk : CityEvents Produces ATSC Fashion Show

 

On August 22nd 2017, CityEvents took part in the Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada Trade Show at the International Centre. CityEvents presented the crowd a fun and trendy fashion show to the mix of some already great seminars that take place at the yearly trade show.

The show featured some amazing designers from students out of George Brown, Seneca College, OCAD, Fanshaw and Humber College to some trendy up and coming Canadian designers. Amongst this mix were student designers such as Anastasiya Lyevina who opened the show and set the mood for the day, along with Kennie Lampkin and Sepideh Ghahremani whose designs took the stage by storm.

Some of the featured Canadian designers consisted of Gift Gowns a stylish alternative to those boring hospital gowns that everyone is so used to, Katiya Lifestyle Brand whose designs were comfortable and perfect to wear during your downtime.  

KM Brand who was also featured in the trends lounge that displayed how you can take one outfit and turn it into another. KM designs featured cool zip off clothing pieces that turned short sleeves into long sleeves and pants into shorts in a matter of seconds. Last but not least Julia Grieve’s designs closed the show with her brand PreLoved and showed off some great sustainable pieces that could be added to any fashion lovers wardrobe for this up and coming fall and winter seasons.

The show also featured some of the amazing designs from the exhibitors that were already on the trade show floor from Bangledesh, China and India.  This show provided the public the option to stop by the booths and check out designs that were being featured in the show.

With a professional stage, awesome music and great lighting no wonder people were stopping by to take pictures as the models strutted everything from outerwear to formal wear and designs for every season.

CityEvents was pleased to take part in the production for this show by recruiting designers from all over. The experience of marketing and producing the show was a joy to the team. Thank you to all the schools, models, designers and supporters who came out to help and check out the show.

The Rose picnic’s doors were officially opened at noon on July 22nd. For this first edition, the Rose Picnic surpassed our high expectations.

The Inaugural Rose Picnic took over the beautiful grounds of Fort York in downtown Toronto; with its pink blankets everywhere, music planning, and picnic baskets with tasty snacks!

It was a memorable interactive picnic with a summer festival vibe! Despite the fickle weather, the staff did excellent job, and everything ran smoothly.

The good vibes of the event outweighed the imperfect weather, thanks to the fresh beverage, the laugh of the people enjoying their time, the music and the tasty food.

The people had enjoyed the performances of the talented piano artist, David Johanns, while sipping on a delicious glass of Rose.

It was the perfect event to enjoy a good time with your friends as well as meet new people. Toronto’s first ever Rose picnic was a success and we are definitely hoping it becomes an annual event.

Tall, Dark and Handsome: the Dominion Keeps Getting Better With Age

Comments Off

Toronto’s oldest landmark pub, The Dominion, was first established in 1889 by Robert Davies, the third son of one of the most prominent families in the history of Toronto brewing. He founded the Dominion Brewery, in competition with his brother who started The Don Brewery, just a little bit down from where he would later open the pub and hotel. The brewery is now a heritage site called Dominion Square. The Dominion Brewery produced internationally acclaimed lagers and ales for over 60 years. By the time of Davies death in 1916, he had become one of Toronto’s wealthiest residents.

The original building still stands today at 500 Queen St. E as the Dominion Pub and Kitchen. In keeping with its history, the interior has been stripped down to the original bricks and is decorated in with dark tufted leather couches, wood paneling, and wire lights, it’s easy to feel as if you’ve stepped into a speakeasy. The bar is stacked with 24 craft taps, lots of bourbons, plenty of spirits for hand-crafted cocktails, and wine.

The Robert Davies Room, named in honour of the man mentioned above, is an entirely private room at the south end of the building with raised windows facing Queen St. E., low and high seating options, and large mirrors on one side of the room that reflects a painting of the an original Dominion Brewing Co.’s Club Ale label on the exposed brick on the opposite side. There is two screen in the room with connection capabilities. The Robert Davies room is perfect for smaller gathers and celebrations and can accommodate up to 60 guests for both cocktail or seated receptions.

There are cozy bench seating and warm wood paneling that the runs the length of the room on one side facing original archways to the rest of the restaurant. The Back Dining Room can hold up to 100 standing, or 70 – 80 guests seated, depending on table arrangement.
