Posted by Bianca Venerayan / May 22, 2013

Nordstrom TorontoThis Week in Fashion rounds up the week's style news, store openings and closings, pop-up shops, sales and upcoming fashion and design events in Toronto. Find it here every Wednesday morning.

NEWS

Nordstrom is coming to Canada in 2016 with two locations in Toronto - one at Yorkdale and the other at Sherway Gardens. Though the opening dates are far in the future, a website for Nordstrom Canada has recently launched, giving Canadians insight to the American retailer and a chance to create a job application profile.

EVENTS/PARTIES

The eclectic MIDNIGHT MRKT is finally back and ready for action for its third round. If you didn't catch the first (or second) one, it's an event similar to other monthly markets (like 101 Markets and the Junction Flea), except in nighttime party style. This Friday (May 24), shop from 8 pm to midnight on the 2nd floor of 461 King Street West with Worn Journal, Vitaly Design, Shoppalu, and more -- and then stay a little longer to dance to DJs Lucie Tic, and Johnny Hockin. Entrance is $5 at the doors.

This Saturday (May 25), head to Trinity Bellwoods Park (790 Queen St W) for a massive yard sale hosted by 1-800-GOT-JUNK. There's no better way to spend the day than perusing the odds and ends that dozens of vendors have to offer - from 10 am until 7 pm, the park will be jam-packed with furniture, clothing, and more at undoubtedly great prices.

SALES

The PYA Importer Ltd. sample sale kicks off today (May 22) and stretches until Saturday (May 25), giving shoppers four whole days to snatch up a great deal. Brands like Ted Baker, Line Knitwear, and Corpus will be available at up to 80% off, so be sure to visit 15 Apex Road for a chance to stock up on quality goods.

Standard Apparel is hosting a sweet sample sale at their head office (87 Wingold Ave, Unit 1) from tomorrow (May 23) until Saturday (May 25). Snatch pieces by Fred Perry, Oliver Spencer, Filson, and more at low, low prices from 10 am until 8 pm on the weekdays, and 10 am until 4 pm on the Saturday.

From Friday (May 24) until next Thursday (May 30), 18 Waits will be selling their signature made-in-Canada clothing and accessories from seasons past at insane markdowns. Visit the Oz Studios (134 Ossington Ave) between the hours 10 am and 8 pm to score shirts (regular $220) for $50, shorts (regular $195) for $65, and way more for way less.

On Saturday (May 25), Pinewood Film Studio (255 Commissioners St) will be home to this year's CAFTCAD Movie Wardrobe Sale, where over 30 vendors will offer their outrageous and unique clothing from 9 am until 5 pm. It'll be a mix of high-end, classic, and vintage garments, plus a few wardrobe supplies here and there at discounted prices. The $5 admission will go to The Actors Fund of Canada.

Wait, how will the yard sale operate around the thousands of people drinking in the park?

It reflects badly on the city that Nordstrom is not opening a downtown location. They usually anchor high end urban locations. I know Holt probably scared them out of Yorkville but still... A lost opportunity.

Between Sears at EC and the podium of One Bloor I'd say there is a solid chance we see a downtown Nordstrom by 2017.
