On March 26, 2011, the Royal Ontario Museum‘s Young Patrons’ Circle hosted its annual fundraising gala, PROM: Into the Wild, presented by BCBGMAXAZRIA. Held in the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, it was an evening of good food, great company, and fantastical fashions. Party-goers were instructed to ignite their imaginations ”with inspiration from the natural world. Take cues from a rowdy canopy of rainforest trees, a deep ocean brimming with life or a dry desert habitat hissing with activity.” Suggestions included fancy feathers and faux fur; bold and racy prints like cheetah, zebra, or sexy snakeskin patterns; safari chic or khaki cool; wild manes and magnificent masks; and penguin suits. And what did we see? All of the above!
