Toronto Fashion Week came and went in a flash, but I’m happy I was able to attend and support some Canadian talent. This season was extra special because I got to be apart of a few projects with BY DANILEA, a local Toronto-based beauty company that I currently intern with. We had the pleasure of getting a backstage pass to meet and co- interview a few Canadian designers before and after their show.
I started the week off by attending the Tuesday showing of BUSTLE and UNTTLD. Both of these collections were super fun, but I was obsessed with the gothic glam vibes UNTTLD was showing… No joke, I’ve never wanted to try gold lamé and black lipstick more than I did while watching that show.
The next day, I was reunited with Danielle, owner of BY DANILEA. We met up for a pre-show interview with Helder & Diego, and then headed to lunch at Hey Lucy’s where we ordered a charcuterie board (a new word for me) & some pre-show martinis.
Day 4 began with another pre-show interview with Triarchy Denim followed by drinks & a late lunch at Gabby’s Pub which was fitting as it happened to be St.Pattys day. After lunch, Danielle and I attended the Triarchy & Hillary Macmillon show.
By day 5, I was definitely exhausted! You’d be surprised by how much Fashion Week can take out of you. That being said, this last day was a lot of fun and followed a similar pattern as the few days before it. After shooting my last FW look-book, Danielle and I went over to Kit Kat on King Street for , you guessed it, drinks and some grub before our pre-show interview with Maram followed by the amazing Stephan Caras Show!!
That is it! I Hope you enjoyed reading about my TFW experience. Between going to shows, interviewing, lunching, walking in heels (eryday) and the fluctuating weather, it was definitely a crazy busy week. I was fortunate to be able to meet & be surrounded by so many influential and inspiring people. Can’t wait to see what next season has in store.
