I can’t believe that another TIFF season has come and gone. As you’ve certainly noticed, we had a lot of fun attending some of the best events alongside A-list celebrities and film lovers. One of the TIFF events that we look forward to most of all is of course NKPR’s IT Lounge. As you would have seen in our recent contest where one lucky DoTheDaniel.com fan won a #NKPRIT15 swag bag of their very own, it was one of the places to be and be seen. Come and see why in another #TIFF15 round up post!
“Celebrating 10 and 40 years respectively, NKPR’s highly sought-after IT Lounge and the Toronto International Film Festival will officially partner for the first time – a coming together of the decades – to create an exclusive anniversary Festival experience at TIFF.”
The prestigious IT Lounge always has amazing brands who participate in the gifting experience for the lucky attendees. This year’s brands included (in no particular order): Saje Natural Wellness, Goody, Barilla Pasta, Cross Pens, Tom Tailor, SEQUENCE & TWENTYSIX. I had so much fun talking with them all!

Did we also mention that celebrities had a chance to join W Magazine and photographer Caitlin Cronenberg for a beautiful portrait? I hope that one day I am able to make the shortlist to have the honour of being included in this exclusive experience. A boy can dream! Here are some of our favourite portraits
” In 2006, NKPR’s IT Lounge was the first gifting suite in North America to bring cause to the forefront. This tradition of giving back continues, and in 2015 a donation will be made to Artists for Peace and Justice for every celebrity who sits for a portrait.”
Last, but certainly NOT least, we all enjoyed delicious food in the “Casa Barilla” Restaurant and Chef Showcase. Below are the participating restaurants, their dishes and select photography of famous food lovers.
