September 4, 2012, 10:19 pm

We’ve hit the one week mark until film festival begins and the NKPR office has been abuzz with activity! From A-list soirees, to the 7th annual IT Lounge and the end of a fashion gala era, this year’s Toronto film festival will prove to be one of the busiest (and most exciting) events we’ve seen!

The NKPR IT Lounge Portrait Studio Presenting Patrick Demarchelier, brought to you by RW&CO. 

NKPR, 312 Adelaide Street West
Appointment Required
September 6 – 9, 2012  

In 2012, we’ve redefined the IT Lounge, blending two of our passions – fashion and photography –to create an unprecedented photo studio headlined by legendary fashion photographer, Patrick Demarchelier.

During a time of year when our city is buzzing with excitement and glamour, we are evolving the concept in a major way, creating a new and innovative experience for the celebrity, while staying true to our ongoing-commitment to give back.

For those of you that know us, supporting charities and causes close to our heart, is an important part of who we are and has been fundamental to the IT Lounge since the beginning. At the center of our 10th anniversary year, all participating IT Lounge partners will assist in raising funds and awareness for NKPR’s cause-driven candy shop, Kandy with a K, benefitting 10 charities for each of the 10 days of the film festival.
