This week, all eyes are on Toronto’s fashion industry as World MasterCard fashion week opens at Dave Pecaut Square for the Fall 2015 season. With Joe Fresh and Target off the runway and out of the tents, there’s plenty of room for newcomers and WMCFW veterans to steal the spotlight. With over 30 shows and events taking place, picking the right show for you can get tricky. We’ve rounded up the top 6 shows we’re most excited to see at fall 2015 WMCFW to help narrow it down for you. Unfortunately, you’ve missed your opportunity to snag tickets online, but there are a limited number of tickets available for purchase at the door. If you end up finding yourself at the tents this week, here’s who you should consider seeing:
Paris-meets-Hong Kong designers, Emeric Tchatchoua and Raymond Cheung, bring their menswear line to World MasterCard Fashion week for the first time since their inception in 2012. Expect “avant-garde design and minimalism with a subtle touch of madness.”
Designer and season 2 winner of Project Runway Canada, Sunny Fong, has partnered with Subway Restaurants for a 60s inspired “Cloudy with the Chance of Meatballs” themed capsule collection this season. We’re interested in seeing how this fashion-meets-food collection will turnout!
Last season marked this Australian designer’s first show at World MasterCard Fashion Week. Her girly, sequin infused, print-on-print collection was certainly one of the most memorable and we hope she’s able to pull off another spectacular show!
A World MasterCard Fashion Week staple, the contemporary Canadian outerwear line always manages to reinvent the leather jacket and bring out a star studded crowd. This year, you’ll be able to shop styles straight off the runway at their Holt Renfrew trunk show this week.
Lole will hit the World MasterCard Fashion Week with their FW15 collection + SS15 White by Lole collection. This is the first time that the Montreal-based yoga-wear line/retailer will present at WMCFW and we can’t wait to see how the high-end yoga line will look on the runway.
World MasterCard Fashion Week first-timer, Paulina Wonders, will debut her super-eccentric sci-fi movie culture inspired line this Wednesday. The Montreal-based will combine cyber-punk prints with shiny materials for a spacey vibe – we’re excited to see how Toronto’s fashion community responds to the line.
