The calendar is out and registration is now open for Toronto Fashion Week, now called World MasterCard Fashion Week. Event moniker aside, the new sponsor should bring renewed energy to the tents. It has already brought a few new designers including Ezra Constantine, Cara Cheung and Rad Hourani. Korhani Home kicks off the week on Monday, March 12th along with Holt Renfrew. And once again you can count on Bustle, Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan to bring the crowds.
With a financial partner in the role of title sponsor, perhaps MasterCard carriers will be able to enjoy a few buying perks on site. (Unfortunately I won't be enjoying those since I carry its competition.)
The Dare to Wear Love show returns as this season's closing show on Friday, March 19th (9pm). Dresses from the first few years of Stephen Lewis Foundation fund and awareness-raising campaign are currently on display at the Textile Museum of Canada. Want to join the celebrities walking in the Dare to Wear Love runway show? Wear RED for the month of February and fundraise to win one of three coveted modelling positions on the grand runway at World MasterCard Fashion Week. There is still time to participate. Details here!
