A few weeks ago, 7 For All Mankind celebrated its grand opening in Yorkdale with a killer party that packed a charitable twist and I had the pleasure of checking out. I arrived an hour into the evening after attending another party and the store was literally elbow room only. Needless to say, shopping or browsing the racks was a tad difficult, but the room was a buzz with great convo, flowing drinks and hot beats.
The red carpet and line-up to get inside
More important than the wide selection of luxe jeans that night, were the creative denim art pieces contributed by local Toronto artists up for silent auction with proceeds being donated to The African Future, an organization dedicated to supplying drought stricken Somalia with food and medical services.

Spokesperson, Canadian-Somali supermodel, Yasmin Warsame, was amongst the who's who guest list of the night. A fan myself, I was so disappointed we didn't get to meet but I'm pretty sure I spied her gorgeous face amongst the throng of guests. Here's a peek at what I did take in that night.

If you're not familiar with 7 For All Mankind, think premium denim priced around $250 and casual separates from $85 and even footwear (though I'm not 100% certain what selection we'll have locally). It's definitely a welcome addition to Yorkdale, which is quickly becoming my shopping centre of choice. Already planning my next visit...
