Vashties 1992 Party is Coming to Toronto! (Events)

Every now and then, an event pops up that I can’t help but spread the word about – or in this case, be involved with. For the first time ever, the multi-talented director and tastemaker Vashtie is bringing more than her ‘NY Sweetheart’ attitude to the city, but also her 1992 Party.
