It’s almost here! – I’m seeking volunteers!

Only four days away and everything that’s been in the works will be revealed to the world! I am so excited and nervous, but I definitely can’t do it on my own.  On Friday August 5, I will need some help getting everything together and ensuring the event runs smoothly and is fun!  Not sure which event I’m referring to?  Read the release for more details.

I need eight people to help with the following tasks:

  • 1 X Set-up – There are already a couple of people on this team, which is why we only need one more hand in this area.  Setting up will start at 6PM and includes setting up decor and making any last-minute runs. Setting-up is fun, because models will also be getting hair and make-up done at the same time, giving you a sneak-peek!
  • 1 X Barback – The venue is small, so the bar team is only two! One bartender, one barback.  It’s pretty self explanatory, and if you’re looking for experience in the service industry this could add to to your resume. In addition: the bartender is super awesome and it would really mean the world to the event.
  • 2 X Model help – The models will be modelling, but not in the conventional runway sense. Therefor they will need assistance in various forms. This is a fun role to have, as it’s mostly just enjoying the event.
  • 2 X Strike – The least glamorous of the jobs – getting everything down after the event! While this may be able to happen the day after the event, assistance is greatly needed here!
  • 1 X Clean-up – The second-least glamorous of the jobs – cleaning up as the event is happening. You get to enjoy the event as it is happening, but this job is to make sure things are staying in place as the night goes on. Another integral and highly-appreciated role.
  • 1 X Door – Again, self-explanatory – you get to be bouncer (of sorts)!  Checking guests off the list as they arrive.

In thanks, I can pay everyone in food, drinks and discounts on clothes – and my utmost appreciation! If you need a reference letter for your fashion or service industry portfolio, I would be more than happy to provide that also.

If you’re available, please contact me at sage@sagepaul.com or 416 459 8280.

Thanks so much, and I look forward to seeing everyone at the launch!

PR: Indie Ready-to-Wear Label Launches August 5

July 28, 2011

Sage Paul
Indie ready-to-wear label launches on August 5

Indie label, Sage Paul, will launch on August 5 at 8PM at Oz Studio’s (134 Ossington Ave.), with its End of Summer collection. Headed by emerging designer Sage Paul, her designs make use of contrasting, woven textures and classic, clean lines, bringing ready-to-wear apparel to men and women who radiate sophistication and are bold in expression.

The End of Summer collection is a small women’s line including cowl skirts, swooping necklines and vintage-inspired dresses, to segue us into early fall. The collection is romantic and confident, a balance of bold and soft prints featured on flowing fabrics paired with solid denims.

Sage Paul began designing prior to graduating George Brown College’s Fashion Design program in 2006, in Toronto. She has developed a unique perspective for fashion through her work in the Toronto Indigenous arts community, an urban community that continually pushes the boundaries and challenges notions of what a “Real Indian” is. As a member, Sage gains incredible inspiration from the strong cultural expressions that she sees everyday and applies it in her art process by merging the aesthetics of old and new Indigenous life with post-industrial urban life.

“I design clothes with the place, feeling, and smells in mind; heavily influenced by culture and the past. This small collection was inspired by Toronto’s humid and hazy August days and breezy evenings that induce memories of sipping luke-warm drinks on a run-down, whimsical patio,” says Sage. “It’s incredible to know this vision will shortly come to life, and I am truly excited and honoured to be working with an amazing group of local, talented artists and designers, all of whom I have known for some time and couldn’t have stepped into this venture without.”

The launch of Sage Paul will also feature work by local Toronto artists, in addition to food and beverage, dancing, and music. The event is by guest list only; to attend the launch and obtain further information, please contact sage@sagepaul.com.

Sage Paul creates timeless pieces, entrusting men and women with looks that are chic, bold and nostalgic. Look forward to the reveal of the labels basics collection Cardigan in the early new year and its 2012 Fall/Winter Collection, both currently in development.

A Launch

Dear colleagues, friends, family and world!

Welcome to my new site – my temporary attempt at having a small presence online prior to the official launch of my label, Sage Paul. I’m excited to announce the celebration will take place on August 5, 8PM at  Oz Studios (134 Ossington Ave).

The launch will feature a small end of summer women’s collection, where models will lounge in a kitschy, romantic setting with you – I’ll get to the details of the designs in a later release tomorrow. Photography and jewelry by local designers and artists will complement the show-offs, and of course music, dancing, food and drinks. Announcements about the future of the label, Sage Paul, will include news about its website (this one), its upcoming Cardigan Collection and its 2012 Fall/Winter Collection, for men and women.

The launch is guest-list only, so please contact sage@sagepaul.com to have yourself and your guest added.  I look forward to seeing you!
