Tommy Ton comes to Holt Renfrew & Toronto pulls out their best shoes

Tommy Ton of JakandJil.com

Toomy Ton, the man behind the insanely popular fashion and shoe blog JakandJil popped into his home town of Toronto for a fun little event at Holt Renfrew, which is Canada’s answer to Saks.

Holt’s gathered the city’s fashion glitterati and presented a collection of Tommy Ton’s much heralded shoe shots as well as the Fall 2010 designer collections. The result was a crowd of impeccably dressed folks with stunning shoes to match. Tommy Ton was also there shooting the shoes of those who came out, so the stakes were high on August 18, 2008 at 50 Bloor Street West.

Here are a few that caught the eye of OfTheNow...

Alexander Wang: He Came, We Saw, & We Snapped Photos

Mr. Alexander Wang Himself

Alexander Wang is only 24-years-old but his designs are loved by women far and wide, and for very good reason. He is incredibly talented, creative, has an eye for detail and uses the best fabrics he can get his hands on. He is also insanely cute, so cute you just want to shove him in your pocket and pull him out when you are having a bad day, just to see that cheery smile.

Yesterday, July 21,2010, fashion fans poured into Holt Renfrew‘s second floor for a chance to meet and take a photo with the designer extraordinaire and of course peep his Fall 2010 line.

Wang never disappoints with his wears, the leather in particular made more than one person swoon with glee.

As expected people were dressed to impress, some more successful than others. Lindsay Coome is a student at UWO and looked cute as a button in her Opening Ceremony dress, Prism glasses and Alexander Wang mules.

Fashion photographers and sisters Lily and Lilac also looked incredible with their effortless style.

And of course the ever stylish Kiwi and Holt Renfrew’s  Natalie Lecomte showed us why curls rule.

But ladies I have to say no one, and I mean no could even touch Holt Renfrew’s Marni rep Gloria Sharp’s style, it simply oozed out of her. Take note everyone, this woman has the illusive ‘it’ factor. Here she is in vintage Issey Miyake and a little touch of Alexander Wang.

Alexander Wang is Coming to Toronto TOMORROW July 21, 2010

It’s true. Designer Alexander Wang will be at  Holt Renfrew‘s flagship Bloor Store, tomorrow July 21, 2010 between 12:oo and 1:30 pm. We have been waiting for weeks for this day to come and it’s just about here. Wang has become the go-to-designer for stylish girls everywhere, so it comes as no surprise that this event has been on the  top of many fashion bloggers and fashion fans anywhere within the Toronto radius.

Wang is a young designer in terms of age, he is only 24-years-old and experience, he has only been in the game since 2004, but as we know both mean nothing. The man is talented and is tenderly known as “The T-shirt Master”. Wang knows fabrics, tailoring and how to make a woman’s body look G.O.OD. So it really is no surprise how much we ladies love him. But his skill goes far beyond the apparel, his accessories and shoes are also hugely coveted items.

Alexander Wang is an city girl’s demi-God and here are a few reasons why…
