Friday Night Live

The adults-only Friday Night Live event at the ROM is a guaranteed multicultural blend of culture, diverse food, people, music – and in this case, fashion, of course!

Members of the Infuse Humber team were lucky enough to attend their most recent Fashionology event on September 28th. The line outside, stretching all the way down the street, was the first indication of what the evening had in store. Guests are welcome to wander from room to room of the museum, more or less unsupervised.

As the smash hit franchise “Night At The Museum” can attest, there’s something eerie but exciting about touring the exhibits after hours. The Iris Van Herpen exhibit harbored a particular inexplicable creepiness; the museum patrons milling about the displays of cracked mannequins sporting delightfully outlandish designs.

Food stations were positioned in various rooms, serving drinks and snacks for the price of a food or drink ticket, which were available for purchase. Purple and blue neon lights lit up the lobby as the DJ – feminist electro pop artist “For Esmé” – spun tunes and the guests enjoyed themselves.

Friday Night Live continues at the ROM every Friday night from 7-11:30.
