When We Were Cats: Snapshots from WORN’s 3rd Annual Black Cat Ball

Last weekend, Toronto’s Dovercourt House housed the liveliest gathering of stylish felines since the jazzy party scene in Disney’s Aristocats. And to celebrate the release of WORN’s 17th issue, one thing was purrfectly clear—everybody wanted to be a cat. It was a lot of things. It was a soiree. It’s here now, in memory only, until next year.

We Have Decided to Throw YOU a Party Because You Are a Cat

If there is one thing WORN knows how to do it’s, well, make a great fashion magazine. But if there’s another thing we know how to do, it’s without a doubt throw a killer party. And let’s say there’s this third thing we know how to do, and it’s love cats.

In anticipation of your unique desire to see those three things combined, we made this black cat-themed party to celebrate the release of our 17th issue JUST FOR YOU.

Please come to your party. Please feel encouraged to wear your best black and white to your party. Please bring your friends to your party. Oh, the memories you will make!

See you tomorrow, Saturday, November 23, at Dovercourt House (805 Dovercourt Road) at 9:00 p.m. $10 pre-sale tickets are only available until Friday, November 22, 2013 at 5pm, and at Type Books on Queen Street West until 7pm on Saturday November 23rd, so don’t purrcrastinate. Admission at the door is $15 and comes with the newest issue of the magazine. Once inside you may drink, dance, and participate in a wonderful midnight raffle. Okay?
