Toronto Fashion Week: A Style Blogger's Wrap-Up

So, last month I was lucky enough to attend a few shows at World MasterCard Fashion Week! Now before I go on, let me assure you: I am a completely NORMAL person.  There is nothing special about me.  I am in no way notable or important in any "scene" in Toronto.  I am just a regular 20-something Torontonian that works the daily 9 to 5 grind at a digital marketing agency in the downtown core of Toronto (typical..).

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!

This was my favourite look for the entire Line Knitwear show.  It is perfect.  The smokey grey/black monochrome, the silhouette of an oversized top, and legs - LEGS FOR DAYS.  Love.  I want to be her.



Stacey McKenzie opened and closed the show at Farley Chatto.

I was absolutely blown away by the Farley Chatto show.  Honestly, I didn't know what to expect.  I knew there would be a lot of fur, but OH MY GAWD.  Everything. Was. Beautiful.  EVERYTHING.  During the show I came to this logical realization that I clearly need fur-everything.  I am currently on the hunt for the PERFECT faux fur vest (faux because we all know the real stuff ain't cheap).

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

Thanks for reading!
