I went to the 7FAM flagship store opening launch party at Yorkdale Mall yesterday and it was a sardine fest. It was so rammed with people you had to literally throw dem 'bows to get around. Aside from the lack of space though, it was great! A lot of familiar faces, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, tunes by DJ Vaneska, loads of denim and some truly spectacular artwork.
The soirée was hosted by Canadian-Somali supermodel Yasmin Warsame, which also featured a silent auction with all proceeds of the night solely dedicated and donated to The African Future, a charitable organization delivering food and medical services to the victims of drought in Somalia. Amazing!
The store itself also featured and will continue to showcase the Seven Senses which is a group exhibit of 7 Toronto based artists: Caitlin Cronenberg, Justin Broadbent, Elicser, Curtis Santiago, Phoebe Lo, Bryan Espiritu and Julie Moon. The show will continue to run from August 31st-September 8th.
Below are some pics of the event. You can catch the rest of them on my Facebook page.
Bryan Espiritu's piece:
