#FAJOSocial 2014: The Summer Party

This past Wednesday, FAJO Magazine, one of Canada's leading online fashion magazine, hosted an evening filled with fashion, beauty, charity, and shopping! Located in Toronto's distillery district, FAJO hosted the event at the Arta Gallery, a gorgeous open-concept venue filled with beautiful paintings which embodied what the night was truly about... Art, fashion, and true talent. Canadian designers, stylists, PR experts, and CEOs, all gathered to admire and enjoy the luxurious vendors that displayed their beautiful jewelry, artwork, and both womenswear and menswear.

Lamania Boutique attended this event and decided to follow the cocktail attire dress code and dressed to impress!

We thought our outfits were cute, but wait until you see some of the fashionistas we bumped into!

The event was filled with amazing music entertainment by Elena Musician and great anticipation for the fortune teller by Astro Coach. 

While mingling, grabbing a drink, or munching on the hors d'oeuvres, independent vendors offered eye-candy around the gallery with displays of gorgeous jewelry, clothing, art work, bags, and handmade pieces that left you speechless! 

Guests had the chance to win a $1,000 prize at the door raffle, as well as a $300 gift for the best-dressed guests! With a variety of prizes and a fabulous silent auction, each guest also received a summer-themed swag bag at the end of the night, filled with summer essentials valued at $180. No one left empty handed!

Karoo, one of the independent vendors, showcased their summer collection of pastels, protea flower-inspired cutout pieces, and different variations of dresses with unique patterns and details.

Jon De Porter Jewelry offered a proud collection of pearl jewelry, which also showcased recent designs made specifically for the World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto this past year.

Liana Marie was another talented jewelry designer from Oakville who showcased her unique collection!

To top it all off, Wild Works Designs Inc. allowed guests to try on their custom hats. Sharon Snitman, the designer, explained how each hat is customizable to suit everyone's style, making it personal and different. Each hat is a statement and can completely change any outfit!

  1. Awesome summer Party it was! I wish I could have been there. I also would be attending my cousin’s birthday bash at one of the roof top Chicago venues and really not able to wait to see my lovely cousins and other family members after a long time.
