Toronto-based duo Chan and Slight founded Candice & Alison, their event design, production, and management company, in 2009 and have since handled events for clients including Kanye West and Oprah Winfrey. Chan and Slight have backgrounds in fashion and marketing and are known for events with sophisticated design that draws upon cutting-edge trends. They designed more than 65 events in 2016, including the Toronto Blue Jays’ Jays Care Foundation Curve Ball and Mackage’s show at Toronto FW16 Fashion Week.

Chan, on their design philosophy: “At the core of our philosophy are concepts that are both fashion-forward and edgy while simultaneously remaining timeless and elegant. They are designed to be executed with uncompromising attention to detail and identifiable by that element of ‘cool’ that cannot be explained.”
