FASHION | TFI New Labels 2013
Presented by Target Canada, the Toronto Fashion Incubator New Labels event is a fashion show, cocktail reception and dinner all rolled into one evening. The gala, which will raised funds for the TFI, a non-profit that supports small business entrepreneurs in the fashion industry, will present a runway show of the new labels that the TFI helped launch with prizes for up-and-coming designers to be won, such as $25,000 cash from philanthropist Suzanne Rogers, a feature in FLARE and a chance to design a collection for Target. Can't afford to attend the dinner but interested in seeing what young names are carving out names for themselves in Toronto fashion? Buy a ticket to the runway show for $50 (TFI members) or $75 (non-members).
The Carlu (444 Yonge Street) 8PM $50-$250
MUSIC | Kirty's "Run River Run" Video Release Party
Kirty, possibly Toronto's most adorable pop folk musician, celebrates the release of her new music video "Run River Run" with a party at El Mocambo tonight. With a solid performance background that spans nationwide for the last three years, Kirty's album All I Really Know was released in October 2012 and with a grant from MuchFACT, she created this underwater music video to accompany her first single. Raven Shields will kick off the evening with a performance, which will be followed by a screening of the video and Kirty will hit the stage around 10PM to play a set. This is a pay-what-you-can event--be generous!
El Mocambo (464 Spadina Avenue) 9PM PWYC
PHOTOGRAPHY | Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival - Janieta Eyre: Constructing Mythologies
The Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival may not start until tomorrow but Janieta Eyre is getting a head start with the opening of Constructing Mythologies this afternoon. Opening at U of T's Art Centre, Eyre's collection of photographs challenge traditional notions of femininity through the very iconography and images that construct these ideas. Examining five stages of womanhood, from youth to motherhood, Eyre reimagines beauty and sexuality on her own terms. The exhibit is a curated product of four Masters of Museum Studies students and will remain on display until the end of June.
University of Toronto Art Centre (15 King's College Circle) 12PM Free
