Power Ball is the most stylish art party the whole city is looking forward to. Every year, celebrities, fashionistas, influencers, art lovers, and party people dress their best and go to Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery.

This year, nearly 1,500 guests attended this fundraising event, presented by Max Mara. Red carpet was invaded by dazzling luxurious outfits made by Canadian, as well as foreign designers. This year’s theme was called ‘Stereo Vision’, and it did not fail to impress us. The combination of imagination, creativity, dreams, and fantasy resulted in the original scene of different artworks among which we saw the photographic series Outset by a young photographer from Virginia, Torrance Hall, winner of the National YoungArts Foundation’s 2017 Max Mara Young Visionary Award.

The other side of the gallery included Daniel Barrow’s artworks Learning to Breathe Underwater and House on Fire which totally fascinated the crowd. All guests had an opportunity to personally ”interact” with the presentation and move images on the projectors that controlled the art displays.

Art is art, but fashion is something that all guests pay the most attention to. From mesmerizing evening gowns to gorgeous cocktail dresses, the Gallery was full of interesting looks. As guests were discovering digital installations by Canadian artist Daniel Barrow and charged landscapes created by Kelly Richardson, a fashion observer could clearly see how stylish everyone looked. Toronto celebrities and fashion influencers were in attendance that special night, including Dan and Dean Caten of DSquared, Kirk Pickersgill from the design duo Greta Constantine, The Real Housewives of Toronto (most of them), and many others.

Besides large projections of Max Mara’s runway shows, this year’s Power Ball also pleased its guests with an edible selfie wall. Decorated with real marshmallows with a rainbow hue under the neon lights, it guaranteed everyone a perfect colourful backdrop for selfies as well as a sweet treat.

A satisfying variety of cocktails and snacks, including charcuterie and Peruvian seafood ceviches (provided by P&L Catering), and a live performance by Darcys (presented by WayHome Music and Arts Festival) made everyone’s night.

One thing about Power Ball is for sure: it never fails to throw the party of the year! And we are definitely looking forward to their 20th anniversary.
