This year’s event, Baroque Ball, will celebrate the highly ornate and extravagant style of art, architecture, music and dance that flourished throughout Europe from the early 17th until the mid-18th century. On November 23rd we are excited to reimagine the grandeur, the drama and the exuberance of this period in modern day Toronto with our guests.

What to wear? Dramatic Black Tie. Think exaggerated brocade, elegant damask, delicate lace, lush velvet, over the top florals and all things gold.
