UPCOMING FASHIONABLE EVENTS IN TORONTO FOR 2018!

HEY LOVES! I wanted to do a quick post on some of the up-and-coming events that the Toronto fashion sphere has to offer! I’m planning on going to some of these as well, so it’d be awesome to meet you there! ENJOY X


 

1. TORONTO FASHION INDUSTRY “WHEN FASHION MEETS”

WHEN: EVERY MONTH

WHERE: BUANOTTE RESTAURANT- 19 Mercer St, Toronto, ON M5V 1H2

Fashion networking is a crucial aspect of gaining insight into the Canadian fashion industry and for a while now I’ve been attending this one right here, run by an amazing group of individuals from the “Toronto Fashion Industry.” Anyone and everyone who comes out to these events are thrust into a world of friendly fashion-forward peoples, whom are willing to connect and aid those in need of more fashion experience.

Whether it be job-hunting, collaborating with Toronto content creators, this event will have everything you need to starting your journey into the fashion scene. It’s a free event and is perfect for anyone who is just starting or even anyone who is already in it and looking to help others further themselves. I’ve personally met some amazing people, and I encourage you all to come out and participate in these types of networking events. They are absolutely amazing!

2. TORONTO FASHION WEEK

WHEN: FEBRUARY 5 – 7, 2018

WHERE: YORKVILLE VILLAGE- TORONTO, ONTARIO

Located in one of the most fashionable hubs in Toronto, this week has been one of the most important fashion events that many industry fashionistas and fellow Torontonians alike have looked forward to for a numerous amount of years. Upon the most recent changes that TFW has experienced (being dropped by IMG and reclaimed by a group of investors from the condo developer Peter Freed), this week has turned into a 3-day event that aims to showcase established local designers whom are truly changing the Canadian fashion atmosphere as we speak. This event also aims to incorporate international talent in order to gain “international attention” in the future.
