TFI Press & Buyers Brunch at #WMCFW a Huge Success!
October 25, 2013
World MasterCard Fashion week (WMCFW) has been a whirlwind, but we have already seen so many amazing designs and 2014 trends that have us wishing it was every week!
On Wednesday and Thursday, fashion industry movers and shakers took time out of their busy schedules to stop by Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI) Press & Buyers Brunch. The curated trade show of promising designers and innovative fashion brands was held in The Studio at David Pecaut Square onsite at WMCFW for the second season in a row and featured a scrumptious brunch spread by Ritz-Carlton.
While cameras from CBC and Global News buzzed around the action, the featured designers showed off their threads and networked with over 110 of the city’s top fashion media, retailers and VIPs who explored the latest crop of fashion talent and their spring summer 2014 collections. Notable guests included the TNT owner Arie Assaraf, fashion favourites Alexander Liang and Sharon Ng Hayes, Nancy Won and Caitlan Moneta of FASHION Magazine, and Emily Ramshaw and Truc Nguyen of FLARE Magazine. Professor at the University of Fashion & Technology, Bangladesh and member of the TFI Rushmita Alam also took in the designs and had a moment to pose for a photo with our very own Kayla Matos!
A very special congratulations to TFI Executive Director Susan Langdon and her team for the best season yet! We can’t wait to see what’s next for these talented up-and-comers. Check out each of the featured designers below. Do you have a favourite?
