Just a few blocks from where the Toronto Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors last night, a few other Canadians were enjoying a home-court advantage.

Designers, social media influencers, photographers and fashion industry leaders gathered for the annual Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards in Toronto on Thursday night to celebrate successes in the world of art and design.

This year, the ceremony honoured a number of recipients who challenge conventional standards of fashion and beauty, and address issues outside the fashion world.

Designers Sid Neigum and Aurora James, British Columbia models Krow Kian and Tasha Tilberg, and labels Mackage and Matt & Nat were among the winners celebrated.
