Social Snaps: Jonathan Simkhai, WDLT117 and More
It’s a store that’s ‘not for everyone.’ Highly curated and off the wall, WDLT117 is now open just south of Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood. Inside you’ll find an array of eclectic clothes and accessories from brands like Kuboraum, Paco Rabanne and Bao Bao. Guests were welcomed to an opening cocktail that featured portraits of notable Toronto personalities from fashion photographer Adam Katz Sinding.
One of Canada’s most beloved TV stars Yannick Bisson (Murdoch Mysteries) celebrated a double birthday with wife and producer/actor Shantelle Bisson at the One Eighty in Toronto. On the notable guest list: Jonathan and Drew Scott (Property Brothers).
Luxury ready-to-wear designer Jonathan Simkhai held an event at TNT to showcase his F/W19 collection. Simkhai, who just dressed Karlie Kloss for her (second) wedding to Josh Kushner, was in attendance. And fresh off their co-chairing of the Butterfly Ball, Cleophee Eaton and Candice Sinclair played co-hosts.
Finally, this year’s Mad Hot Ballet gala raised over $1.2M for the National Ballet of Canada. The desert-dream-themed gala opened with an incredible set of performances (one in particular by Xiao Nan Yu, who retires after 22 years with the NBC at the end of this season) and concluded with a gala dinner by Sash Simpson, served on stage at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Rana Florida and Rochelle de Goias served as co-chairs for the event, which was attended by nearly 2000 guests.
