This 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.
After two years on College Street, The Arthur (550 College St) - a decor boutique filled to the brim with vintage curios - is closing up shop at the end of the month. Owner Liz Ikiriko is starting a new chapter in her life, so be sure to pop by for one last look at all the remarkable knick-knacks she has in-store - and score 'em final sale at 50% off!
Tomorrow (August 22) from 7 pm until 11 pm, celebrate the official launch of Black Flower Vintage (2 Lakeview Ave) - a new men's boutique in Dundas West specializing in spunky 70's pieces. Peruse one of the very few vintage menswear spots over food and refreshments, and get 15% the stock when you like Black Flower on Facebook or follow them on Instagram!
Walk-In Closet and Shoppalu are launching a collaborative pop-up shop and everyone's invited! Drop by the Oz Studios (134 Ossington Ave) some time between this Friday (August 23) and next (August 28) to shop Rehana Hirjee's wardrobe, handpicked vintage goodies, and more. The opening party - happening tomorrow (August 22) from 7 pm until midnight - will be dazzled with snacks, drinks, tunes and good company.
For two days only this weekend (August 24 - 25), the IndustREALarts Room (688 Richmond St W) will be home to the Muddy York Collective's pop-up shop. Support local talents - like Little Green Design, Wild Thing, Tomorrow Never Knows, and more - by taking a gander at the vintage and handmade clothing, jewellery, and housewares from 10 am until 5.
Rosie the Rebel and Loveless - two retro-inspired boutiques under one roof (961 Bloor St W) - are having their grand opening bash this Saturday (August 24) from 9 pm until midnight. But, it's not just any ol' launch party; there'll be a fashion show, magic tricks, palm reading, tarot reading, carnival games and - best of all - burlesque performances by Dolly Berlin, Fiona Flauntit, Miss Mitzy Cream, and more!
