20 photos from backstage at Toronto Fashion Week
We're down to the last day of Fashion Week, and despite leaving home in their absolute best threads, everyone's starting to look a little worse for the wear. That's especially true of the crew backstage at the David Pecaut Square tents - 50 stylists and a slew of volunteers have been clocking 12-hour days all week to bring the collections to life.
Judging by the reviews from the latest crop of shows, it's all been worth it.
On Wednesday, Matthew Gallagher charmed with his pastel-infused collection, and Caitlin Power wowed Thursday with an upbeat take on her trademark power-woman pieces. And, as always, the buzz was loudest for Joe Fresh. Head honcho Joe Mimran brought an eastern-inspired collection of ever-wearable pieces in navy and coral - as well as a couple of special guest models - to the runway Wednesday night. As we say farewell to Fashion Week, get a peek at the controlled backstage chaos that gave way to the week's shows.
