Fashionistas in space
This year’s Buy Design for Windfall (buydesignforwindfall.ca) fundraiser went off without a hitch this past weekend. Themed Buy Design in Space, the futuristic fashion set came out in droves to raise funds for the charity—Canada’s only new-clothing bank—with the always-exciting live and silent auctions (items included M.A.C and Chanel gift baskets and tickets for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra). We had our eye on a few prizes, but alas, nothing made it home with us. Not even the jam-packed gift bag, which we think we left in someone’s car! (Too many Moon Juice cocktails to remember!)
Hosted by fashionable man Adrian Mainella, we spotted designer Philip Sparks, chatted with the lovable and hilarious Jessica Biffi, runner-up to the just wrapped second season of Project Runway Canada and grooved with blogger friends Danielle Meder of Final Fashion (who also created this year’s mascot, BuyBarella) and Anita Clarke of I Want – I Got. Also in attendance were Windfall co-chairs Andrew Sardone and Tralee Pearce, the F-List’s Leesa Butler and Canadian design icon Linda Lundström with her gorgeous daughter Moshana. Can’t wait to see what fabulous theme the Buy Design committee comes up with for next year!
