It’s officially started! The World Mastercard Fashion Week festivities have begun in Toronto featuring some of Canada’s best and brightest designers! This week-long event previews the collections of Spring/Summer of 2014 – yes, we can’t wait and this will definitely get me through the rainy, bleary week we’re experiencing in the city. Did they call for frost too? Yikes! NEVER MIND!
It’s definitely HOT in the city with runway shows and events!
Luxury and high fashion retailer Holt Renfrew hosted the Opening Night party for Fashion Week at the flagship store last night with many familiar faces in the industry including the one and only Stacey McKenzie – the model that rocks the pages of fashion magazines and always entertaining and fresh on the runways.
It was a full-house at the party last night as the crowd gathered with drinks in had around raised podiums that highlighted some favourite fashion labels like Greta Constantine, Steven Tai, Naked and Famous and others Deliciously smooth cocktails were handed to me each time I turned around — um…hello, Grand Marnier Smash …was definitely a real smash! And of course, macarons were offered on trays to the fashionistas and media peeps. I found out that they were macarons from Butter Avenue, of course. MY FAVE!
The Bumbys were BUSY offering free analysis of your appearance. Yes, I didn’t go there. I don’t know that I want to know but my red suit would be a giveaway. Anyway, the line up was huge as the undercover peeps worked all night typing away (whoa..on typewriters too!)
DJFathom mixed old school, hip hop and rap that had movin’ as soon as we heard the beats. I think I need to host a party just to have him there.
Definitely “the party” to be seen at and a great start to Fashion Week in Toronto!
Stay tuned! We’ll be reporting on a few shows and events when we can find wi-fi !
