In the blink of an eye, Toronto Fashion Week has already come and gone, and as usual, it proved to be three unforgettable days. This season was full of statement pieces, innovative designs and stylish fashionistas.

Here are our top 5 moments during the week:

1. These Four Walls

The locations where events and shows took place this season were beautiful, ethereal, edgy and diverse. In a way, they reflected the cultural diversity of Toronto itself; from an elegant experience at the Royal Ontario Museum, to an underground parking lot runway beneath Yorkville Village, and an artsy evening at the Gardiner Museum.

The Hazelton Hotel and Yorkville Village were main hubs of entertainment, bustling with hair and makeup teams, talks about the fashion industry, designer showrooms, and pop-up runways.

2. Strut Your Stuff

Designers were out to wow last week, displaying their best creations in dazzling collections that truly exhibited their talents. There were breathtaking ball gowns, street style with tulle, bubble wrap coats, and sleek menswear; every runway show was unique and special in its own way.

Each collection was an entire experience, complemented by the atmosphere and impressive hair and makeup team.

3. Ice, Ice, Baby

Sure, we had rain, snow, ice and slush all within the three day span, but that didn’t affect Toronto’s fashion game whatsoever. The unpredictable weather just made things a little more interesting, and our Canadian fashionistas still looked as fierce as ever.

4.Out to Wow

We all love staring at the clothing during runway shows, but the outfits in the audience are just as unreal! Each attendee had their own eclectic taste and confidently wore their carefully curated outfits, showcasing their personal style and posing for photographers and Instagram shots.

Our very own INFUSE members were spotted at TFW looking absolutely fabulous!

5. Helping Hands

All week, assistance was happily provided by volunteers; find them wearing a blue T-shirt, and a smile. These volunteers did a variety of tasks behind the scenes, including setting up runways, dressing models and ticket registration. Everyone worked hard in order to make the designers’ dreams come true!

Teamwork at its finest!

We can’t wait until next season, when we can do it all over again.

See you soon Fashion Week!
