I'm sure I'm not the only one that's been curious as to "what types of people" attend these things. Now, don't get me wrong I DID have some sort of an idea from my experience volunteering (back then it was called L'Oreal Fashion Week) at Toronto Fashion Week back in 2010, and even then I wondered who all these fancy people were. Last Fall, my sister bought tickets for us to go see Mackage and Joe Fresh, and let me tell you: STANDING in the very back is not at all glamorous OR worth a $50 ticket.
Anyway, I had the serious pleasure of being invited to attend 3 shows during the FW2014 WMC Fashion Week: Line Knitwear, gsus, and Farley Chatto. The reality of being invited as a designer guest at WMC Fashion Week is that your seat will still be first-come-first-serve. Designer guests have the 4th to 8th rows in a lettered section, and sometimes designers invite more guests than seats. I was lucky enough to sit 4th row for gsus and Fareley Chatto, but sadly I was standing in the back for Line Knitwear. I salvaged what I could of taking zoomed-in iPhone photos in the dark lol. Details below!
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any "good" snaps of the gsus show, but what I CAN tell you is that women LOVE wearing gigantic hats to fashion week. Let's hope that someday I can avoid the back of heads and hats and sit in the front row! Overall, I had a lovely time watching these three shows at Toronto Fashion Week, hope to eventually attend more!
In other news, the sun has finally broke through the polar vortex cold here in Toronto! Bring on the Spring style!! <3
