Art of Fashion - Head Shot Fundraiser

Art of Fashion – Head Shot Fundraiser

Art of Fashion was first established in 1998, Michelle Planche, CMP, President of Paradigm Events, launched Art of Fashion with the goal of facilitating the professional development of Canada’s rising fashion talent. Since, the organization has sought to provide a superior level of early-career support modeled after fashion hubs New York, Paris and Milan. Through critically acclaimed events, Art of Fashion has dramatically influenced the careers of hundreds of designers. The organization is driven entirely by the support of volunteers and sponsors from industries ranging from fashion marketing to finance.

On Monday February 24th – Tuesday February 25th from 9:00am - 9:00pm Art of Fashion is once again organizing an exciting and rewarding opportunity to support Toronto’s rising talent. The Art of Fashion Head Shot Fundraiser is a first in the 16 years of the organizations existence. The Head Shot Fundraiser offers designers, supporters and friends the chance to obtain a professional head shot. It’s a great opportunity to update your professional portfolio or your LinkedIn picture.

The Fundraiser event however would not be possible without two amazingly supportive contributors – Light Monkey Photography and Joy Bistro. Light Monkey Photography has generously donated their time over the 2 day period to take the professional head shots as well as detail them for final release to participating artists. As you scroll through Light Monkey Photography’s Blog you cannot help but be fascinated with the pure creative beauty that is their work, from architect, to business professional images and beyond- like catching the pure wonder or fire performers through the lens. It’s a thrill in itself to have captured the time of these wonderful professionals at Light Monkey Photography and have them assist emerging artists through the Head Shot Fundraiser – We cannot wait!
