Kollar ClothingThis 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.

EVENTS/PARTIES

Support breast cancer tomorrow (August 29) at Fashion Forward's Pink & White party, an event benefitting new-age charity Rethink. Wear your best colour-coded outfit to Cube's rooftop patio (314 Queen St W), pick up swag bag, join a silent auction for a pair of autographed ballet slippers from the National Ballet of Canada - and cross off your good deed of the day, all while having a grand ol' time. Advanced tickets are $10; entrance at the door is $15.

Jeanne Beker - the city's most beloved fashion personality - will be gracing the 16th cover of Toronto-based publication WORN Journal. It can't be easy to translate all of her invaluable advice, experiences, and musings to paper, so editor-in-chief Sereh-Marie McMahon is taking it upon herself to host a public, up-close-and-personal conversation at Type Books (883 Queen St W) with the lady wonder herself. From 7 pm until 9 pm tomorrow (August 29), discover Jeanne's love affair with fashion - no cover necessary!

Next Wednesday (September 4) from 4 pm until 7 pm, Trinity Square (southwest of Yonge & Dundas) will be home to Fashion On Yonge, a festival featuring over 600 of Downtown Yonge Street retail stores and restaurants. Complete with a live DJ, stylist consultations, three themed runway shows, a red carpet, and a chance to win a care package valued at $1500, this free event isn't one to pass up.

Asia Clarke of local jewellery brand Wild Moon is headed to Dominica to volunteer for CUSO International, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing poverty and inequality across the globe. For this reason, she's turning to her endlessly supportive community for help - party style! Next Wednesday (September 4), jam out at Measure (296 Brunswick Ave) with DJ Tona from 7 pm until the wee hours of the morning, and pick up some Wild Moon photography prints and 20% off jewellery while you're at it. Cover is $10 and the first 30 attendees get a blingin' free giveaway.

SALES

This Friday (August 30), Kollar Clothing is hosting a party/sale extravaganza at Proper Reserve (498 Queen St W) from 10 am until 2 am. Some of their exclusive new fall/winter gear will be up for grabs, alongside all their remaining summer merchandise marked at up to 70% off. If you can't make it, Kollar's available all year round through their online shop or local stockists.
