Fashion Week Recap

March 23, 2012, 3:47 pm

Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week kicked off last week showcasing fashion and beauty looks for Fall/Winter. It was such an amazing week in fashion! From attending shows, hosting a fashion week pop-up and spending time with a beauty icon, the NKPR team did it all!

We were incredibly excited to meet beauty icon and essie cosmetics founder, Essie Weingarten for the second time! In town for Fashion Week, we hosted a meet & greet at our office where she shared her amazing nail tips, as well as some of the upcoming essie collections! She has such an amazing presence and the best nail advice! (Check out her tips for newsprint nails via The Huffington Post Canada)


In celebration of Fashion Week, essie held a pop-up nail bar in the NKPR office. (Talk about convenience!)  Guests received a free express essie manicure by Tips Nail Bar and were treated to some of the new collections including Wedding and Poppy-Razzi neons! Beverages were provided by DAVIDsTEA. We love their refreshing and delicious spring collection!

Essie nails were all the rage on the runway, showcasing nail trends at Lucian Matis, Soia & Kyo, Pink Tartan, Ezra Constantine, Rad Hourani and Travis Taddeo! Gothic glamour at Chloe Comme Paris was complemented by essie nails in Wicked with a lace design on top!



The Spoke Club hosted their own Fashion Week shows featuring Missoni, Chanel, Celine and Alexander McQueen! Beauty looks were created by Stila Cosmetics, Ardell Lashes and essie polish. Guests at the shows were gifted with these beauty must-haves and Ardell created a pop-up lash bar treating all of the attending ladies to luscious lashes for the night!


Kicking off the evening, SKYY Vodka cocktails were served to guests at The Spoke Club including the Ardell “Wink” cocktail and the Stila “Sweetart” cocktail!


Meanwhile during Toronto’s Fashion Week, fine jeweller Classic Creations was off to another iconic fashion event in Switzerland. Baselworld is the largest international watch and jewellery show in the industry. Highlights included the yet-to-be released news on the new ladies Ebel line! (We can’t wait to hear!)  A classic favourite, Chanel also celebrated the 25th anniversary of the first Chanel watch by unveiling this gorgeous Première Flying Tourbillon!
