LUMAS, a gallery concept from Germany with the mission to make art accessible to everyone, opens the second location in Canada. The Blue Carpet set out on Yorkville Avenue opened the night introducing the LUMAS gallery to Toronto. The event featured SUITS actor and photographer Patrick J. Adams with an exclusive collection of his photographs. To add to the buzz, a selfie in front of LUMAS art in the space provides an opportunity for guests to receive a piece of limited edition cutwork puzzle that make up the Toronto cityscape art. You can see them on instagram with #LUMASCanada or @LUMAS_Canada.
The beloved First Canadian Place has been going through transformations in recent years and BMO Financial Group also went through extensive renovations to its branches and offices. The grand opening of the renewed main branch was on June 11, 2015 - the 40th anniversary of this location. BMO celebrated with welcome events and ribbon cutting for the official grand opening. Details can be found on the Canadian Interiors post and the Toronto Star article. You can see my branch photography here.
My good friend and talented designer AP tied the knot, take note of the breathtaking wedding dress she designed! They are the most fun couple I know and the wedding was indeed a blend of unique, hilarious and touching moments. The idea of cap guns for wedding favours is just through the roof! What a riot!
It's time for the design industry to give back, and beach ball was the event to raise funds against women's cancer for the Sunnybrook Foundation. The event was very exciting, along with the help from sponsors and volunteers, provided various fundraising activities and a great beach party that went well into the night. The highlight for me was seeing the stratocaster signed by Bon Jovi band members in the silent auction, petting the baby kangaroo and witnessing the emotional candle lighting in memory of loved ones affected by cancer.
