Made in Slovenia may not be the first words that come to mind when you're thinking fashion, but a unique event slated for the Carlu (College Park, 444 Yonge) could change all that. A major fashion show featuring 24 models wearing clothes by 15 Slovenian designers who serve the likes of Dolce & Gabanna and Hugo Boss hits the runway Wednesday (September 14) at 5:30 pm. Cocktails flow at a pre-event reception at 5 pm. Psst, it's free, but seating is way limited, so register ASAP at www.eurobrand.biz.
It's not often we send you gallery hopping, but you'll really wanna see the textiles up at Spin (1100 Queen West, second floor) through September 25. Anna Torma 's solo exhibition of killer embroidery on linen is gobsmackingly gorgeous. Noon to 6 pm daily, and Sunday 1 to 5 pm. 416-530-7656, www.spingallery.com.
If you're thinking of tying the knot, you probably want to maximize your choices when it comes to planning the big event. That means attendance at the National Bridal Show, Friday to Sunday (September 9 to 11) at the International Centre (6900 Airport) is mandatory. Over 250 exhibitors of flowers, photography, invitations, food and formal attire are on the floor, and fashion shows are presented daily. $15. Friday 5 to 10 pm, Saturday 10 am to 9 pm, Sunday 10 am to 6 pm. 905-815-0017, www.nationalbridalshow.com.
And while we're on the subject of marriages, ever wondered what it might be like to take the whole damn bash out of town? The people at Luxe Destination Weddings can make it happen. They'll help you choose a destination, design the invite, make your guests' travelling arrangements and then plan the whole thing. Nuptials on the beach, anyone? www.luxe-events.com.
