25 photos from backstage at Toronto Fashion Week
Fashion week is in full swing at King and John; though the weather's thawed slightly from Monday's frigid opening night (and the heaters at the tent finally got up to full tilt), designers' minds have been firmly on fall weather, with a strong focus on cozy staples like woolens, flannels, fur and leather at Pink Tartan, LINE Knitwear, Mackage and Joe Fresh. (Apparently, Canadian fashion designers also spent the winter fixating on the horrors of the Polar Vortex. They're just like the rest of us!)
Meanwhile, David Dixon swept showgoers off their feet Tuesday night with his take on bridalwear, and menswear designers Outclass, Klaxon Howl and Christopher Bates made a strong showing Wednesday afternoon.
