Toronto Fashion Week

Highlights from opening night at Toronto Fashion Week

The first day of Toronto Fashion Week is always a flurry of activity. This time, on the opening night of the fall/winter 2014 shows, it was slowed slightly by the unseasonably cold air; volunteers' teeth were chattering, and even the best-dressed in attendance were refusing to doff their winter coats.

But when the evening rolled around and the first run of shows hit the runway, that deep freeze seemed almost a world away. Between the bursts of spring-worthy colour at LINE Knitwear and Mikhael Kale, space-age structure at Sid Neigum, and flowing, dramatic tailoring at Beaufille and VAWK, I almost wished we could just skip straight ahead to fall. (Almost.)

Missed out on the first night of the shows? Here's what happened on the runway and off.

Thanks to Yorkdale, celebrating 50 years of style, for sponsoring our coverage of Toronto Fashion Week.
