This past Friday night, Toronto’s fashion scene and notable media peeps gathered at Brassaii on King St. to help Model/Host/Producer Renee Thompson launch the second season of her reality webseries, Reel 2 Runway. In the the show’s highly anticipated season, Renee once again gives viewers a sneak peek into her life in the world of fashion – which proves to not always be as glamorous as outsiders think. And trust me, this is no fluffy fashion/model reality show….this beautiful, nymph-like, fashion force- to- be -reckoned with brings nothing but the truth and realness so be prepared!
Guests in attendance, including In Fashion’s Glen Baxter, GSUS Canada’s Everton McDougall and Supermodel Stacey McKenzie got to check out the latest pieces from two Toronto Fashion Incubator labels Christopher Paunil and Skinny Sweats, screen the premier episode of season two, sip copious amounts of cocktails and dance the night away to tunes spun by my date for the night Jay Strut and Karim Olen – so basically the best night EVER!
