Fashion Week renamed to incorporate new sponsor

Fashion Week in Toronto, formerly sponsored by L'Oreal, will now be hosted by LG, makers of consumer electronics, home appliances and mobile communications.

This comes at a time when amends were to be made by Robin Kay, executive director of fashion week and president of the FDCC, delivered what has become a highly buzzed (no pun intended) speech during the Fall 2008 show. Known for her affinity for mixing business with pleasure (translation: knocking back a few during fashion week), Kay's speech was one i'm sure many won't forget. The FDCC has announced that she will remain as president and that the change in title sponsor has nothing to do with this incident.

In my honest opinion, sure, she was a bit sloppy, and yes, the speech dragged on.. but for the most part, she was pretty coherent and had good intentions and messages she wanted to deliver. But I do have to agree that professionalism must reign and I'm sure this will be something she won't be able to forget for a long time either.

To see for yourself:

And to read an article about the new title sponsor:

`tis the season!

i love the holidays.

i love the holidays downtown! the decor, themed drinks a la starbucks, and the generally cheery buzz all around. i spent the entire day roaming the downtown core with some good friends, grabbing lunch, shopping, skating at Nathan Phillips Square and having dinner. it's having opportunities such as these that make me wonder why i'm still living in the `burbs.

here is a pic of a friend and i playing around at the apple store in eaton centre:

There's been lots of good shopping this season, and i'm assuming with the economic downturn, many people have been hesitant to jump on the shopping scene. all i have to say to that is "thank you!" for the pleasant shopping experiences! reasonable crowd sizes make the task so much easier. so far, on a rank of 1 to 5 with one being least and five being most, here is my assessment over the past week of shopping madness or lack thereof:

yorkdale - 4
square one - 2.5
sherway gardens - 2
markville - 1.5
eaton centre - 3

if you haven't started shopping yet, get on that!
