Top 12 Toronto Women’s Fashion Week

Toronto Women’s Fashion Week (F/W17) took to the runway, following Toronto Men’s Fashion Week this March. Referred to as TW, Toronto  Women’s Fashion Week attempts to fill the void left when IMG shuttered their version of Toronto Fashion Week, less than a year ago.

The shows featured some of Canada’s top established and emerging women’s wear designers, although some were missing having opted to participate in other fashion events also trying to fill the void. I’ve rounded up my top 12 looks from the week and split them into four categories. Take a look below and let me know if you agree or disagree.

Outerwear Top 3:

We take our outerwear seriously here in Canada. While parkas are king on a blustering snowy day, sometimes wearing a duvet shaped jacket is just not needed. These three outerwear looks provide that extra layer with extra style for a more polished look.

3 – Shelli Oh – @Shelli_Oh


Formal Top 3:

They say “girls just wanna have fun,” and what woman would not have fun in one of these breath taking formal looks? For red carpet events and those very special occasions, these three designers have created gowns ready for the flash bulbs.

2 – Stephan Caras@stephancaras
3 – Diseiye Thompson@thisisdiseiye


Black Top 3:

From dramatic and sexy to dainty and polished, these three looks shown in black give our country’s favourite fashion colour a little extra character.

1 – Picadilly Canada Featuring David Dixon – @picadillycanada
2 – Miriam Baker@miriam_baker_
3 – Rachel Sin@rachelsinstyle

Statement Top 3:

The looks that excite me the most each season are the creative, the fun and the playful statement makers. From artistic and attention grabbing, to purposeful and eco and creator conscious, these three were memorable. Special shout out to designer Peggy Sue who literally spelled out her mission, “Fashion Can Support People + Planet.” In a fast fashion economy, this designer is using her work to remind us faster is not always better.
