The Faces of LGFW: Michelle Easton, PR wunderkind

From PR pros to runway stomping models, there are lots of different types of people who make LG Fashion Week go 'round. For the next five days, I'll be writing about some of them. Today, the PR wunderkind.

Name: Michelle Easton, 26
Day job: PR gal at Rock-It Promotions.

Why you should care: I met Easton about two years ago, and have since watched her continuously excel at her job, meticulously helping to plan some of the city's most buzzy events (see: Powerball). Bubbly, blonde and oh-so-pretty, she's part of what I'm calling "The Fash Pack," also known as the girls who run the world - well, at least Toronto's fashion scene two-plus weeks out of the year. If you're an LG-goer, be nice to this one, you'll usually find her manning the runway seating charts and the throng of LGFW volunteers. Her word is as good as gold, so if she can make it happen for you, she will. But don't let her demeanor fool you, she's all brains and feverishly fast-paced. If she won't take bullshit from the front row, she won't take it from you either. If you piss her off? Well, good luck.

During LGFW, you find it hard to... Keep up with the high volume of emails, requests and sleep.
During LGFW, you can't help but notice... All the crazy outfits. You know what I mean...
The show to watch: Sunny Fong's VAWK on Wednesday Night

Easton's Toronto hit list:

Where to shop: Bicyclette Boutique
Where to eat: Woodlot
Where to hang: Sweaty Betty's
Where to hide: The Distillery District
Where you call home: West Queen West
