Power Ball XIX: Stereovision, presented by Max Mara, continued its legacy last week as the city’s most over-the-top art affair, where the well-heeled clink their glasses with the creative class and everyone gussies up for a booze-filled sensory overload.

Yes, documenting Power Ball – the style, the antics, the underlying currents of lust and envy – is always a pleasure. As Canadians, we’re known to be incredibly modest and conservative, but the scene at Power Ball (which took place at Toronto’s Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery) always ruptures this stereotype quite nicely.

Oooh these photos…enjoy!
