I had the privilege of attending Nuit Blanche Last night, which is a night of artistic showcasing that happens once a year in Toronto. The whole of downtown Toronto is transformed into art of some form and you can hop around from one area to another to view anything from ethnic drumming, to fashion show cases to architectural hors d'oeuvres to paintings to real-life depictions of art. The festivities start at 7:03 pm and go on all night!
I couldn't do it all so I selected what would interest me-which was of course fashion- and went for it.
After being taken to a delicious dinner at my favorite restaurant- The Keg, my friend and I started our walk in downtown Toronto. It was amazing to see so many people bustling downtown, heading to different areas and unfortunately there were the drunken students out & about as well,probably club-hopping.
My friend and I headed to the Yorkville Design Centre to see the fashion pieces on display, but not before being swamped by a crowd of couples dancing to some sultry Latin music on the side walk! We just had to join them for a short while.
After the Yorkville Design Centre, we headed a little SOuth to hear some Korean drummers!
The picture quality isn't the best because believe it or not, I forgot my camera at work! ( Yes,I use my camera at work) Sorry.
I didn't necessarily get some of the pieces and would probably not wear them but they were certainly eye-catching.
