MONTREAL issue 9 release party: Winter Formal Slowdance!

Even though we love our new home of Toronto, WORN misses Montreal!

We’ve decided to hook up with Slow Dance Night once again and throw an issue 9 release party and bring you the formal you’ve been waiting for since high school. Think of it as your second shot, but without the bad hair, embarrassing chaperones, and excruciating, hormone-flooded insecurity. This is an event that demands you step up, dress up, and step out.

Saturday, November 21st, 9pm-1am Eastern Bloc, 7240 Clark Ave.
10$ formal ticket gets you the new issue of WORN and a dancecard!

Indulge your nostalgia. There’s not a dress too full, nor tux too ruffled – there hasn’t been a corsage made that’s too sneeze-inducing for this event. The Winter Formal Slowdance is a place to work out all your fashion wish-I-hads and remember-whens. When was the last time you really dressed up and went dancing?

PS – I can personally confirm 3 couples who met at the Winter Formal Slow Dance party we had last year, and are still happily smooching in the corner. As if you needed another reason to be at this party.

It’s All About Numbers at the Winter Formal Slowdance

We had hoped for 100 people.
Over 200 passed through the door before the night was over.

Most people planned to stay for 1 hour, you know, just to make an appearance.
At least 70% stayed for 5 or more.

The organizers planned for 5 sets of slow dance ballads.
They had to add 2 because no one wanted to stop dancing.

We filled 7 racks with coats.

Everyone showed up wearing 2 shoes.
A whole lot of us ended up wearing 0.

I danced with at least 6 strangers.
I developed 2 inappropriate crushes.
My skirts had 5 layers.
I am singlehandedly responsible for getting my best friend Rachel into 1 red taffeta dress with 0 straps.
