Toronto Fashion Week

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending Toronto Fashion Week, aka the horrific sounding ‘World Master Card Fashion Week’. Oh, advertising.

I had a gorgeous afternoon ogling at chiselled, gazelle-like models strutting their stuff in Canada’s finest.

There was front row seats, press passes and freebies galore (OK, admittedly freebies were limited to espressos and designer socks).

If that’s not a perk of being an intern at ELLE then I don’t know what is. Even for someone whose passions lie far from the fashion spectrum, it was a lot of fun.

From the chilled out media lounge, to the attention seeking bloggers, to the actual runway shows, Fashion Week is an experience I’m definitely keen to repeat.

Check out some of my snaps!

Behind the scenes

Though audience members were dressed up to the nines, photographers and journalists were remarkably calm. Probably because for every 10 minute show, there’s 50 minutes of waiting around that comes with it.

Here are some shots from my favourite three shows:

3.Paradis

The most thrilling to watch, thanks to gas masks aplenty and a stair-filled runway. I wasn’t mad keen on the clothes themselves but, hey, fashion is about so much more… (ha)

My favourite menswear collection. Sleek, stylish and actually wearable.

The Wild North

A fur protester sneaking onto the runway and being wrestled off by bodyguards made for a pretty entertaining watch.

The best looking models by a mile. No complaints.
