Fashion Week moves to the center of the city

It seems that the success that the Fashion and Design Festival had bringing fashion outdoors to the people did not go unnoticed at the Fashion Design Council of Canada. L'Oreal Fashion Week is camping out in Nathan Phillips Square this season and opening the tents to the general public.

Traditionally tucked out of the way at Exhibition Place, many people in the city seem to be unaware that we even have a Fashion Week. Perhaps the move to a more convenient central location will introduce the local fashion scene to the citizens of Toronto who usually would not see the shows.

This being Toronto though, I wonder if the warm weather hold up until the end of the month? Fashion Cares in tents last May was a frigid disaster, and does not bear repeating. The FDCC better make sure the heaters are working. After all, the models will be wearing Spring and Summer clothes... and goosebumps are not sexy.

Whatever the weather, I will be there with mitts on - and encourage everyone to come see Toronto's best designers and models rock the runways downtown. This is our Fashion Week!
