home decor for a cause
The Home and Style Studio Tour and Sale is a three-day designer-studio frenzy running this weekend. For a $12 passport (with a portion of proceeds going to local HIV/AIDS causes), you get to peek and shop in local art and design mavens' studios, homes and galleries. Gussy up your house with one-of-a-kind textiles, clay work, paintings, lighting, woodwork, furniture and more.
Passports can be purchased at the door of any of the studios in the tour, which are listed online at www.studiotouronline.com or in Focalpoint, the tour guide, which can be found at Caban, Pier 1 Imports, Restoration Hardware and Ridpath's Fine Furniture. 416-221-1937.
funds for fashion
OK, we know NOW readers love a good cause, and really, what's a better cause than fashion? (No, don't answer that. Purists!) The Fashion Group International of Toronto is having a swish fundraiser, the Night Of Stars gala, which will honour people who have done great things for the fashion and design industries in this fair country, and raise some gold for bursaries and scholarships for up-and-coming designers, students and other stylish riff-raff. The event is on October 8 at the Isabel Bader Theatre (93 Charles West) and will feature cocktails, dinner and more fancy people than you can shake a Chanel bag at. Tickets are $135, call 416-535-6055.
