This Week in Fashion: Homegrown Boutique moves online, Fitzroy Boutique and A Homerun! pop-ups

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.


Homegrown Boutique (16 Cumberland St), a Yorkville store filled to the brim with Canadian labels, closed its doors last week after three years of business. With condo developments axing boutiques across the city and e-commerce looking shinier than ever, owner Michelle Baboolall decided to move online and into the occasional pop-up shop. So, supporters of local and national talent need not worry; you can still shop Homegrown's fresh Canadian fashion from the comfort of your home.

Judy Cornish and Joyce Gunhouse of edgy/chic womenswear brand Comrags are premiering their costume design skills at Anton Chekhov's The Seagull. The play runs from March 7 to 23 at Berkeley Street Theatre (26 Berkeley St, Upstairs), with 8 pm performances and 2 pm matinees. Catch the duo's evocative designs, which were - according to Cornish - both a pleasure and a challenge to create for characters "who already have their story, their history, and their style." Tickets start at $36 and are available online.


A Homerun! is back at it with Walk-In Closet, a monthly pop-up concept all about recycling, reusing, and reinventing. Join Pamela Wong, Singhnature, Trophy Jones, and complimentary Le Dolci cupcakes at the launch party tomorrow (March 6) from 6 pm until 10 pm. If you can't make it, don't fret! The pop-up shop will run all weekend long (March 7 - 9).

This weekend (March 7 - 9), catch a glimpse of e-commerce unicorns Fitzroy Boutique and Violet Crown Vintage at a collaborative pop-up shop. Head to AWOL Gallery (78 Ossington Ave) to shop their quirky-cool handpicked womenswear in the flesh from noon - 8 pm on Friday and Saturday, and noon - 6 pm on Sunday.

International Women's Day is coming up this Saturday (March 8) and there's no better way to celebrate than with the 2nd annual Women Supporting Women - Shop Local. The shopping event is setting up at Park Hyatt (4 Avenue Rd) from 10 am until 5 pm with complimentary high tea, gourmet treats, and a whole slew of women-owned businesses to pick and peruse. Snag a ticket online or pay $15 at the door.


All sale merchandise from every TNT store has once again been moved to the outlet (388 Eglinton Ave W), meaning you finally have a fighting chance at finding that one ridiculous coat you wanted last season in the right size. Everything's going for 70% - 80% off until March 31st, so be sure to head over earlier than later to avoid missing out.
