During Toronto's FW15 World MasterCard Fashion Week in March, I had the honour of covering a few shows, in addition to contributing as a multimedia reporter for FASHION Magazine. Over 1,000 of Toronto's fashion royalty and culturalites ascended onto the impressive main floor of the Design Exchange for the closing fete of FASHION Magazine's Toronto Fashion Week Awards. The awards respectfully honoured everything from the heavyweights (Pink Tartan’s strongest collection in years) to the newcomers (Montreal-based Atelier Wonder’s Blade Runner ode). Also in attendance were designer couple, Joe Mimran and Kimberley Newport-Mimran; and Greta Constantine designers, Stephen Wong and Kirk Pickersgill.
