Our poor Toronto designers.
Toronto Fashion Week is kicking off today and there's barely been a bit of pre-buzz on the collections they've been stitching together for months and are preparing to catwalk this week.
There's been lots of talk about Fashion Week's new Nathan Philip's Square tented venue in our local style media. Journalists concerned for the well being of their bladders have openly voiced worries over venturing to a port-a-potty for a week.
Tonight's filming of the finale of Project Runway Canada has everyone crossing their fingers for a David Bowie sighting (glamazon wife Iman is the show's host) and wondering who the program's final three will be?
And then there's this little bit of pot-stirring cyber mischief: http://torontofashion.blogspot.com/. An anonymous blogger has created a petition calling for reforms to the Fashion Design Council of Canada which organizes the event. More people are playing guess-who-wrote-it than adding their signatures to the cause (in six days, the petition has maxed out at 37 names) so we're calling this Fashion Week's first flop.
If changes to the FDCC do need to be made, they’re not happening under the watch of a shy web writer.
All preamble aside, it is time for us focus on the fashion and you can follow our thoughts right here all week long. You can also come down to the tents yourself. Limited single show tickets and day passes range from $25 to $50. Log on to www.lorealfashionweek.ca for more info.
