nothing personal just biz-ness

White out.


Everyone daring enough to wear white is making a statement, intentionally or otherwise. White attire can produce in statements of grandness, tackiness, egotism, sex, cash, laziness, and cleanliness to name a few.

Seeing how statements are best made in groups - why not be part of the Fashion Magazine flash mob event?

This Saturday at Toronto Life Square Fashion Magazine will be holding a 'flash mob' event. You may be thinking what exactly is a flash mob event? Let Webster tell you: "a group of people who organize on the Internet and then quickly assemble in a public place, do something bizarre, and disperse".

Although the first instance of flash mobbing was way back in 2003, it's origins were a mystery until 2006 when Harpers published an article informing readers that the inventor extraordinaire was none other then the magazine's editor - Bill Wasik.

Wasik claimed that he created flash mobs as a social experiment designed to poke fun at hipsters and to highlight the cultural atmosphere of conformity and of wanting to be an insider or part of "the next big thing''. I like social experiments, poking fun at hipsters, highlighting cultural conformity, and being part of the next big thing- so, I'll be there.

The idea is meet at the NW corner of Victoria street & Dundas Street East and look for white balloons. After that move to Dundas square where assembled participants will freeze for five minutes in a fashionable pose - think Danielle skinny arms.



Take inspiration from P-Diddy, Tom Wolfe, Woody Allen, and Galdalf.
Wear it well. See you there.

I always have trouble wearing white, but I love an excuse to do it. This is neat. I'm proud of Toronto when they plan arty events....

We are two best friends: Sarah and Lara.

We have been collaging together since we were in kindergarten. From hilroy to apple, the medium has changed but the message remains the same.

We get by with a little help from our friends,
