Fashion Magazine’s Toronto Fashion Week Awards


On the last night of Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week, FASHION honoured the week’s designers, stylists and artists with the inaugural FASHION Magazine Toronto Fashion Week Awards. The city’s tastemakers and fashion elite descended upon 461 King Street West to celebrate Canadian fashion design while raising a glass to the hard work of all the individuals who helped make Fashion Week possible. And many a glass was raised; from signature cocktails courtesy of Crystal Head Vodka to a variety of Kim Crawford wines and ice-cold Peroni beer. For snacks, 10tation Catering provided an array of appetizing options – from black truffle mac and cheese cups to roasted grouper mini tacos. For non-alcoholic options, guests enjoyed Bottle Green and Smartwater to wash down their tasty treats.

From Best Emerging Talent to Best Model, those who brought home awards were presented with gorgeous Swarovski-crystal studded frames. In addition to the awards given out on Friday, we’re leaving the most important vote, best collection of the week, up to you.
