Monday turned out to be one of the best Monday’s ever.
I was invited to the launch of a new MTV magazine called Fora. It hasn’t actually been launched to the public yet but when it does it’s going to be huge. They’ve enlisted an amazing group of writers from the Toronto blogging and twitter community, some really smart people who I got a chance to speak with at the event. I’m really looking forward to this magazine launching.
The event started at the Masonic Temple on Yonge St with a live-to-tape filming of the After Show with Jess and Dan with special guest Kelly Cutrone. A fashion icon (People’s Revolution), star of The Hills and author of a new book If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You. Which from what I understand is almost a how-to guide on breaking into the fashion industry.
(Thanks to Stephanie (@TOFashionTrends) at the Toronto Fashion Trends Examiner for the pics, the iPhone 3GS camera sucks.)
As far as I remember this was my first show taping, crazy eh?
After the filming we were escorted out a different entrance and into some old school elevators to another floor where the Fora launch party was setup. The theme; Prom!
I have tons of video and more photos of the Fora party that I will post as I get them edited and processed. Watch for a new blog post with those! It features some, if not all, of the top bloggers in Toronto.
