Toronto Life, FASHION, HELLO! Canada and FLARE Hold First Annual Style Lounge

The curated pop-up at the Maverick Social Club was a spot to be during the first weekend of TIFF 2019.

From September 6 to 8, 2019, SJC’s Toronto Life, FASHION, HELLO! Canada and FLARE held the much-anticipated first annual Style Lounge. The invite-only lounge celebrated four of Canada’s largest media brands all in one place, and was hosted at Maverick Social Club in the heart of King Street West, right across from TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Guests could get red carpet ready with a Clarins beauty touch-up featuring the brand’s newest products, including the Joli Rouge Lacquer and Plant Gold L’Or des Plantes. The @ClarinsCanada Instagram account shared all the hottest beauty trends for the festival.

Festival-goers could complete their look with a chic Vinylux manicure by the global leader in professional nail beauty, CND—done by the nail experts at The Nail and Champagne Bar (TNCB)—at the Style Lounge Nail Parlour.

Hot Tools® appliances, the gold standard for professional hair stylists, created a pop-up salon with renowned stylist Kirsten Klontz, to transform looks of attendees.

Tasty canapes and non-alcoholic Seedlip cocktails, both infused with Youtheory Collagen, offered a wellness boost to guests. An illustrator also designed custom sketches of people enjoying their most beloved wellness activity.

Delicious canapés and snacks were provided by The McEwan Group, along with protein bars from RXBAR. Guests stayed hydrated with cocktails by Tromba, wine from Vieni, beer from Lost Craft, nitro cold brew from Balzac’s Coffee Roasters and ROAR Organic electrolyte beverages.
