With Labour Day come and gone and our whites neatly folded away, it's time to get serious. Serious about Toronto's upcoming fabulous season: Fall! The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is already here and LG's Fashion Week is only around the corner.
Canada's fashion industry is also getting serious. Various different organizations and businesses are hosting several events around Toronto that highlight the business-side of the fashion industry. Here's a quick hit list of great fashion events coming up in Toronto during September:
"Trend Report Fall 2011" hosted by The Bay
Hosted on-site at The Bay's flagship store on Queen Street, Fashion Director Suzanne Timmins will provide an inside look at what trends and colors we can expect to see in Fall 2011.
"Discover Innovative Ground Breaking Ideas by WSGN" hosted by the Toronto Fashion Incubator.
Also held on September 22, 2011, TFI members will get valuable insights from WGSN, a leading fashion trend researcher and analyst. This is market intelligence at its best.
