New stores have been opening left and right this past month, and this week T and I attended the launch of yet another. This time, it was in honour of Toronto’s first 7 For All Mankind boutique in Yorkdale Shopping Centre. The event was hosted by Canadian-Somali model Yasmine Warsame, who partnered with 7FAM to donate a portion of the evening’s proceeds and full proceeds from the silent auction to The African Future, a charitable organization delivering food and medical services to the victims of drought in Somalia.
It was a packed house, with guests crammed into every corner of the store, sipping champagne while they shopped for denim. We managed to miss Yasmine Warsame, who I had the pleasure of meeting last year at the Heart of Fashion charity event, but made up for it with a chat with MTV Canada personality and life of the party Sheena Snively. T had a complete fangirl moment.
As for me, I had jeans on the brain. Flared jeans, to be exact. I’ll be back to pick up a pair, 7FAM!
