Getting FAT Isn't The Usual Course Of Action...

If you've been keeping your ear to the ground or rather, have an obsessive streak that involves subscriptions to approximately 7, yes seven fashion mags and a penchant for the pricier ones at the International Presse like me, you're pretty keen on the fact that New York Fashion week is in full swing. Although New York, Paris and Milan get all the attention, it dawned on me this weekend after having a conversation with a couple of friends, that there is a large number of people in this city of ours who aren't aware of Toronto's very own fashion weeks. Yes, I said weeks.

Toronto Fashion Week is set to walk October 16 until the 21st and will play host to a dizzying array of Canadian talent. But, settling itself comfortably in between the Canadian mainstay, another design event is set to shake things up a bit. The Toronto Alternative Fashion Week, or [FAT] as it is affectionately known, will run from October 17th to the 19th. The three day event aims to braid a handful of mediums to highlight the happy bedfellows that fashion, music and art make. The Toronto Alternative Fashion Week was one hell of a good time last year and everyone is welcome to take part. The fashion shows are all over the city and are all free, the music and art shows are also set to open across the city, but will cost a bit more than nothing. You know you want to go, I'll see you there.
