#TBT: TFI 25
May 19, 2016
This week we're throwing it back to Toronto Fashion Incubator's 25th anniversary celebration! In honour of this milestone, TFI paired up their annual TFI New Labels Competition with a gala fundraising event at the ROM and featured emcee Jully Black, a retrospective display of 25 looks from the past 25 years curated by FLARE’s award-winning editor, Elizabeth Cabral, and musical entertainment featuring Anastasia A and DJs Bellosound made for an epic VIP party. TFI even invited designers to play with with Barbie®.
The TFI’s striking invitation for their 25th anniversary gala graced the desks of Canada’s fashion elite, solidifying the celebration on event calendars across the country. Palettera, Canada’s luxury stationery design firm was commissioned by the TFI to craft a distinctive invite worthy of the quarter century celebration.Created using 6,250 Swarovski crystals, 700 stunning Swarovski crystal buttons, 700 yards of ribbon and 500 hours of handcraftsmanship, the final piece was nothing short of stunning.
