FASHION WEEK LIVE : TORONTO

Photographed by Ashley King –

What is it about fashion week that the mere mention of the word in any city can create a feeling of immediate expectation and excitement? Gone are the days when couturiers were the people we hired to stay somewhere in the background in case we broke a hem. Now fashion designers are stars and baby, they are Canadian!

Toronto’s official LG Fashion week is run by Robin Kay and a small army of professionals and volunteers. Which includes Erika Larva and Liz Walsh of Monarch Events, who I might add, were instrumental in KA having a successful Fashion Week backstage viewing. Thank you ladies, and a huge bravo to all the amazing Canadian designers out there; those who showed at Fashion Week, as well as those who are silently doing their thing.
