#TIFF15 | Stylist Box’s The Stylist Suite

TIFF TIFF TIFF… I am living and breathing The Toronto International Film Festival and have been for weeks. It’s one of my favourite times of year and one of our busiest (as I’m sure you’ve come to realize!). So we’ve talked about films, celebrities and gifting lounges… but we haven’t talk about what people are wearing to all these amazing events. When the best of the best need an outfit for a soirée or TIFF themed get together, there is one name that they always think of. Stylist Box and the fabulous brands they carry returned for another year of TIFF red carpet readiness with the #‪‎StylistSuite in a luxury penthouse at Trump® Residences. Come and see the behind the scenes with DoTheDaniel.com! 

The #StylistSuite was actually my first stop over the course of what seemed like a whirlwind week of TIFF, and I have to say they set the bar very high for everything that followed. Set amid a suite on the 56th floor that overlooked the skyline of Toronto in all directions, there was fashion and food as far as the eye could see. I had the chance to meet with designer friends I knew and make a few new ones while I was there… It was relaxed, sophisticated and truly helped me to understand that the styling services of Stylist Box are some of the best in the business.

“The Stylist Suite will provide exclusive access to a range of women’s daywear and eveningwear, menswear, jewellery, shoes, and handbags for personalities to borrow for red carpet appearances and press junkets during the ten day festival. This year’s designer roster is exclusively Canadian with an assortment of women’s evening and cocktail dresses from Andrew Majtenyi, Daymor Couture, Hilary MacMillan, Huntington, Narces, Ryan Alexander,and Zarucci accessorized by jewellery from Atelier by MMCrystal, Caroline Neron, and Huntress. Visiting male celebrities will be outfitted by Finezza – Au nom de l’Homme with shoes and accessories by Parc City Boot Co. and jewellery from Neron.”

The experience left me spinning with excitement… but oh wait. It’s not JUST for the fashion!
