July 15, 2011

ilaika & v:space studio are proud to announce VANITY SCHOOL the latest addition to the VANITY EVENTS – a series of social events focused on beauty and beauty education.

The FIRST SEMESTER of VANITY SCHOOL will take place on Wednesday AUGUST 31st 2011 at GAFAS OPTICAL SHOP, located in the heart of Queen West (561 Queen Street West) in downtown Toronto. The first semester class of VANITY SCHOOL will commence at 6pm and conclude at 9pm. “Vanity Students” will have the opportunity to learn tips and tricks from the VANITY SCHOOL FACULTY of Beauty Experts – which include hair styists, make-up artists, nailcare specialists and other beauty-related experts and companies.

The LESSON PLAN will include topics such as: “I want a PONY! Creating the perfect ponytail”, “Perfecting Falsies – How to apply strip false lashes” and “Nail Me Quick! Quick Fixes for putting your best nails forward”. Vanity Students will have the opportunity to have one-on-one consultations with the Vanity Faculty, for advice on maintenance between spa/salon appointments, specific beauty concerns, application techniques, the right tools, using the correct products and expert tricks for transforming their look from day to evening.

Located in trendy Queen West Toronto, the VANITY SCHOOL will follow in the same footsteps of “I’M SO VAIN | the vanity event”, the successful inagural event in the series of VANITY EVENTS produced by ilaika & v:space studio. GAFAS is a casual, modern lofty-type venue, where attendees can get advice directly from the experts and enjoy an evening of beauty and mingling with fellow Vanity Students.

On Wednesday, March 23rd 2011 from 7pm – 10pm Sherri Wu and ilaika team up with an extensive list of Canadian sponsors to produce “Fabulous in the City”, a showcase that will target the trendy, corporate, single men + women that crave a bit of networking, eye candy, intrigue and
swag. Local media, prominent social media companies and Toronto trendsetters will be present. Hosted at Abode Public Residence, a beautiful venue to compliment the attendees of this event, with music brought to you by DJ Dwight.

At this event, one will have the opportunity to network and in tandem be aware that the room is full of single individuals. “Fabulous in the City” is not your typical monotonous event. Several draws such as a $250 Gift Certificate redeemable for services at Sitting in a Tree, 6 Personal Training Sesssions from Bodies by Maria Kovatchev (valued at $300), and 2 Passes for Unlimited Yoga classes for a week from Spynga (valued at $70) will be available to everyone to participate in.
