A WMCFW Photo Diary

Is it just me or did Toronto Fashion Week fly on by? Maybe it’s because I was sick for the first three days and missed a lot of the great shows–like Mackage, Sid Neigum and Narces.

However, I did manage to get out of bed and attend a few on the final days.

Inside the tents at David Pecaut Square, there was a big bird cage which I absolutely need in my house.

The first show I attended was Threshold ft. Som Kong. This simple shoulder dress was my absolute favorite look from the collection.

Spring was in full bloom at the Matthew Gallagher runway show, featuring ladylike looks I can’t wait to get my hands on.

Gallagher also brought evening wear into a modern era with floor-length gowns. This finale look was probably my all time favorite.

Art has never been my thing. The most you’ll get from me are stick figures–and even those don’t look that great. So when I arrived at the Paintlounge for the Forever 21 Pre-Fall event, I immediately got cold feet. The set up of canvases and stools and the beautiful paintings on the wall…it was intimidating. But more on that later.

The Forever 21 collection for the fall season looks very promising–think varsity mixed with retro with a splash of pink. But what really has me excited is the Barbie collection. I can’t wait to get my hands on the sheer “Barbie Doll” jacket in black (not pink!).

After going through all the fabulous F21 clothes, Claudia (former co-intern at Flare) and I got our paint on. It literally took me a good half hour to come up with something to paint. So, here’s the final result…
