TORONTO, ON – The final evening of Toronto Fashion Week® x RE\SET™, saw some of the nation’s top designers showcase their latest FW2019 collections at the Fashion Environment and the Royal Ontario Museum.
Fashion Talks™ host, Donna Bishop kicked off the evening with an interesting topic that explored the power and influence of fashion on the economic, cultural and social landscapes in neighbourhoods around the world.
The first designer to present his collection was WRKDEPT in the Fashion Environment. Open to the public, everyone was able to see his unique style and design in an innovative, static presentation. The Royal Ontario Museum was the last stop for the event; hosting powerhouse designers and fan favourites, Hilary MacMillan, Mani Jassal, NARCES and Christopher Bates, who sent their most dynamic collections yet down the runway to a packed runway room.
beautyBOUTIQUE™ by Shoppers Drug Mart, under the lead of P1M artist Simone Otis, created makeup looks to accompany each designer’s looks, while Jorge Joao of Redken 5th Avenue NYC led hair designs for each show.
Today was the last day for the Toronto Fashion Week® x RE\SET™ Showroom in the Fashion Environment (136 Yorkville Ave.). The public and event guests had their last chance to meet and shop directly from designers including ROCK ‘N KARMA, ZOFF & Alan Anderson, Zoran Dobric and more.
