Street Style: Friday Night Live at the ROM

By Jean Grant| Photography by Becca Lemire

On Friday, hundreds of sartorially minded partiers gathered at the ROM for a fashion-focused edition of Friday Night Live, the weekly summer event that transforms the museum into a pseudo-nightclub. The event featured DJs, dance floors, local food vendors and more than a few stacked bars—attendees grooved to tunes while ogling prehistoric dinosaur bones and crystals. Friday’s guest list was as diverse as the relics on display: we spotted students, architects and designers all dressed to impress in their museum-party best. Here, our 19 favourite looks.

25, Student “Most of my outfit is from Zara. I like to dress simply: not too many patterns or textures. I prefer neutrals to saturated colours. That said, I always like to add a little eye candy. Today, it’s my plaid pants.”
