a week’s worth – 25-06-09

a week's worth — Danielle on June 25, 2009 at 8:56 am

A Week’s Worth, documents what I did all week – a little peek into the life of a fashion illustrator and blogger.

On Monday evening I went to the new Toronto offices of Dermalogica for an educational event for bloggers.  I met some lovely new blog friends including (in no particular order), Janine of beautygeeks, Katherine of I Heart Beauty, Casie Stewart, Monica of Beauty Parler, and the girls of Toronto Styles.

My skin has had issues ever since a stressful period of time in May, so I certainly could use all the education I can get – and the samples help too.  Dermalogica also puts on free education events for consumers as well – you can get more info on their facebook page.  The process was fun, we all washed our faces and tried out products together.

These days after work, I have been going down to Cherry Beach a lot just to get the cool wind off the lake.  Toronto is on a lake, but you can go months in the city without seeing it.  Right now all the trees are sending off these fluffy little seeds so it looks like it is snowing.  I like Cherry Beach because it is kind of rough and not fancy.  Lots of kids, dogs, bikes, and often hippies with drums.

Wednesday evening I showed up very early to the FASHION House party – it was so early that besides me, it was just the lovely ladies of ASC PR and a few fashion designers, some still setting up their mood boards.  I didn’t stay long because I wasn’t feeling dressed up enough.

FASHION House is a condominium where they commissioned fashion designers to create the interiors for each floor’s common areas – the halls.  A very cool project and it was interesting to see each designer’s take on it and ask them a bit about it.  I especially admired the collaged fashion illustration by Andy The Anh.  He used wallpaper, wood, wire and crystal as textures and rendered his concept as a glamourous dress.  It will be interesting to see how the developers take the concepts and execute them.

A Week’s Worth comes to you early this week because I am headed out of the city for a few days.  Toronto is very hot and stinky right now so it seems like a great time to head up north.  Will be back next week!

How was your week?
