Archive for September, 2009
So where was Tru last night:
Sunday 13th September was the official launch of the Canadian Black Film Festival
and The African Heritage Festival and we intend to celebrate in style. Cinema Noir will be an annual reception each and every year: a place for those working in the industry to mingle, network and connect in a stylish location.
Paying tribute to the many Canadian Artists that are part of the rich film, television and theater industry we have in this Canada.
So i slipped on a strapless draped Black dress but instead of going classic i added a White corset and Knee-high Boots.That made sense for a with girl Mohawk.
Off i went to:
MANYATA Courtyard Cafe, Yorkville.
I have to say i got a little annoyed at the door because a certain someone forget to leave the correct envelope with my name and ticket. So my ticket was there but with a different name on the envelope.I was ready to take my behind home.I dont like to have any fuss at the door.
Then a wonderful gentleman decided… oh no you can have my spare ticket.The Universe worked it out.
I really need to pay attention to who i was suppose to meet/ network and of course friends i hadn’t seen in a while.
One card i definitely took was that of “Saidah Baba Talibah” ..wow powerful name ..for a powerful energy.Today i went online to get a feel for more of her music.
Even though we had met a long ago… but i never got a chance to see her perform.
Judging from the video i have just watch…. oh i am going to change that.
her Blog: http://www.saibabat.blogspot.com
Roxanne DeNobrega did her makeup for the event… Roxy is amazing.. she is my makeup artist for my fashion shoot.I knew what to expect…strong eyes beautiful skin.
I also manage to get some cool style images for Stilomag.com there were people Slamming Style in my face that night
So in the next couple of issues you never know you might see yourself.
Ciao ..till next time
So watch out i might be posting a lot more now that i have things a little more in place. My Move back to Toronto has been good.I am really excited to get things going.
That however requires networking.. which i feel is necessary in Fashion Industry. What’s happening:TIFF:Toronto Film Festival- we are talking party galore.
This year i am rolling with the Marlon Durrant Empire(www.marlondurrant.com) luxury Custom tailor…The Bespoke King of Toronto.To make sure it is really understood, Bespoke means “to be spoken for”,17th Century tailors would reserve fabrics for their Patrons.
Even in the Durrant studio or should i say atelier, when you walk in decadence is the word for the experience. With a combination of Sultry Jazz music,lux fabrics and a selection of aged Appleton rum and Balvenie.
If this is How they run their personal space then it only makes sense that they would extend that experience in their personal entertainment.
Durrant has international reach and personally represents luxury lifestyle.These People know how to have presence and create there own vibe.
What better Empire to roll with during Film Fest.
