Toronto is a huge urban city, true. Everyone knows "the six" is a sophisticated, multi-cultural and great nightlife destination for foodies and fun lovers. But, its also home to lots of parks and natural green spaces where you can see some serious fall colours transform from shades of green to bright orange, gold and vermillion. With less than an hour's drive from the Windsor Arms Hotel you have High Park, Ramsdan Park, Edward's Gardens, Wilcot Creek, Christie Pitts, and Evergreen Brick Works to name just a few.

As we approach the final couple of days of #tiff16 its nice to look back and think about what our favourite moments of the Festival were.

Everything about the event was beautiful, elegant and magical. And, the Stars came out in full force to enjoy it. From Pharrell to Nicole Kidman to Amy Adams, Jeffrey Tambor, Liev Schrieber, Naomi Watts to Taraji P. Henson and many, many more. It was a glamorous night to remember.

She died in 1981 but is still remembered for her contribution to the advancement of the craft and artistry of costume design. She is quoted for saying: "What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not."
