Bentway fashion show toronto

Toronto just hosted a fashion show under the Gardiner Expressway

One of Toronto's coolest new outdoor hangout spots hosted a fashion show last night. On ice. Under the Gardiner Expressway. Who would have thought such a combination was possible a few years ago?

Called cb. Revolution Couture, the event featured Canadian figure skating champions Nam Nguyen and Michelle Long, among other skaters, showing off pretty skating outfits by fashion designer / professional skater Charlene Bailey.

It was definitely more "ice spectacular" than #NYFW, but cool (if not a little cold) to watch.

The models showed off their moves as they strut-glided up and down the ice runway that normally serves as the Bentway Skate Trail.

And unlike the runway shows in major fashion cities, like New York and Paris, this one was free and open to the public.

Who needs PyeongChang, am I right?
