I was so very fortunate to have the opportunity to attend the Shiseido event for a skin care launch and witness the collaboration of Shiseido and art renowned Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Shiseido used one of her iconic polka dots print to adorn the makeup case as a gift with purchase for Shiseido.
This event was hosted by Dave Lackie beauty editor and chief of Beauty The Guide and beauty expert on Cityline.
I hit the road heading for Toronto AGO ,where this evening event was taking place ,I knew it was going to be an unforgettable experience.Upon arrival,I was early so I sat at the bar and had a delightful sugar rimmed drink it looks delicious even in the picture.
Met up with friends and we were off to the closed private event . As soon as i entered the low lit room the ambience was so artful with displays of one of the stars of the show ,the new skin care Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream so elegantly displayed.
We enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and mingling with fabulous familiar and new guests . The venue was extraordinary as was the company and what lied ahead.
Yayoi Kusama Art Instalation
Yayoi Kusama is an recently turned 90 year old Japanese Artist That throughout her career has always had a obsession with dots in various mediums but tonight the focus was on her Infinity Of Mirrors exhibit. We were led in small groups through a series of art installations that are unlike anything I’ve ever seen ,mind altering and attention to details that are transforming to another dimension, infinity perhaps? Or at very least and beautiful place filled with colour,mirrors expanse.
A series of installations followed that were unique and basically out of this world creative. Kusama’s love or obsession with dots have created such a body of work ,through art,fabric,sculptures and I was fortunate to experience this first hand and I am forever impacted at her create genius. Thank you Dave Lackie and Shiseido for the opportunity to experience art and beauty,what a perfect pairing.
Each guest left with a goodie bag with the iconic red and white polka dot makeup case and a jar of new skin care cream
Thank you Dave Lackie
