The heart of Toronto’s posh Yorkville Village will be filled with designers, makeup artists, models, and fashion. Toronto Fashion Week (TFW) kicks off with a line-up that showcases both established and new Canadian talent. A few of the highlighted designers to look forward to include high-end streetwear designers 90s KIDS, Adrian Arnieri, Hilary MacMillan, TOMÉ couture, and Kim Newport’s brand Pink Tartan. This weekend has something for everyone before and after the runway fashion shows. There are a number of other events including a series of Fashion Talks and a new exhibit called Style Art.
Fashion Talks are live podcasts that feature highly acclaimed guests in fashion, beauty, film and photography who sit down and talk about their story and expertise in their respective field. Hosted in the Yorkville Room at the Hazelton Hotel, Donna Bishop will interview fashion designers about how they succeeded in Canada and abroad. A VIP ticket is available for each of these events, which allows audience members to network and interact with the guests before the interview is held. How cool is that? Other topics of conversation include women that are disrupting the fashion industry, sustainable fashion, and how to build a fashion brand.
For all of the artsy types out there, Style Art is a fusion of art and fashion featuring local artists. Artwork will be on display in a number of galleries and retail spaces. The Canadian Youtube star, actress, and model Gigi Gorgeous will have an exhibit of photos dedicated to her journey. Icon in the Making is the highly anticipated exhibit photographer Chris Nicholls put together with a collection of photos that he shot of Gigi. This exhibit expresses Gigi’s beauty and her advocacy for gender freedom in the LGBTQ community.
