In Photos: Gaudet Fall 2009
The early afternoon shows at Toronto Fashion Week tend to be more low-key than the evening shows, giving newer designers a chance to show off their stuff. The lack of activity in and around the tent, coupled with the sunlight pouring through the window at the back meant that vibe was a lot more relaxed than at the evening shows on Monday and Tuesday.
Since people (presumably) work during the day, the audience wasn't as packed either. This meant fewer photographers, which was music to my ears. For the first time this week, I could sit with my legs completely stretched out in the pit. So when Gaudet took to the runway at 3pm, I was really looking forward to shooting in relative comfort.
I didn't know how I felt about Gaudet's jackets at first - they reminded me of bedsheets. But the Gaudet look quickly started to grow on me. Unfortunately the show lasted for less than fifteen minutes. Just as I was starting to really get into it, it was over.
