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.

Banksy Paints Toronto

Hot on the heels of his film debut,¬† Exit Through The Gift Shop, it seems as though Banksy is Toronto. The work of the elusive British artist has popped up in a few locals around the downtown core of our lovely city. We know what you are thinking, they are probably just really good imitations, but the CBC confirmed via emails from Banksy’s publicist the works are real.

Banksy was in town for the opening of Exit Through The Gift Shop on May 7, 2010. So it seems Toronto has finally been graced with his work, but it also seems they are disappearing as quick as they went up. Below is a before and after at Adelaide and Brant:

Hey Toronto, let’s be happy he gave us a little gift and NOT paint over it ok? Thanks.
