HOW THE WOMEN BEHIND TORONTO FASHION WEEK GET IT DONE

They’ve mastered the whole look-amazing-for-16-hours-straight thing

To kick off our Career Style Special, we gathered the power players behind Toronto Fashion Week (which is on from September 3 to September 5 in Yorkville), from the executive director to one of the designers, and chatted all things work, fashion and conquering the hustle—while wearing Canadian fashion, of course.

THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: CAROLYN QUINN

Go-to Canadian designers: Greta Constantine, Smythe, Jenny Bird

Carolyn Quinn is one of Canada’s top champions of home-grown fashion talent. “I wear Canadian during Fashion Week, but I also wear Canadian the other 362 days of the year,” she says. Quinn’s day-to-day wardrobe is stocked with bright colours, metallics and sparkle. She pulls tailored pieces into her office looks to create balance: “I love Smythe—they have the perfect little jackets to wear to the office over my dresses.”
