This Week in Fashion: I'MONIQ pop-up shop, Chinedesign masquerade ball, Over the Rainbow sale, The Sample Sale Guys designer sale

This Week in Fashion rounds up the week's style news, store openings and closings, pop-up shops, sales and upcoming fashion and design events in Toronto. Find it here every Wednesday morning.


Browse I'MONIQ's selection of insane statement jewellery at a 2-day pop-up shop happening at Fresh Collective (692 Queen St W) starting today (February 13) and continuing tomorrow (February 14). In addition to seeing the hand-dyed silk cuffs and one-of-a-kind earrings in the flesh, guests will have a chance to meet the designer behind the brand and potentially win a piece in a raffle.

University of Toronto's Party Smart Association and Fashion Networking Organization are pushing Torontonians to Make Time for Love at Sazerac Gastro Lounge (782 King St W) for a dazzling Valentine's Day (February 14) party involving cupcakes, cocktails, good company, and a live DJ. Plus, they'll be multiple giveaways (including tickets to see Lady Gaga and Rihanna) all night long, so be sure to grab your $10 tickets now.

Local label Chinedesign is hosting a masquerade ball at Daniels Spectrum (585 Dundas St E) on Friday (February 15) following a multi-media fashion presentation celebrating the African mask and the spirit of Carnival. Tickets are available on their website and doors open at 9 pm, but don't forget to grab a venetian-style mask and wear a black, gold, or red outfit, because it's mandatory for the ball!


Spread the love this Valentine's Day (February 14) by bringing in a pair of gently used jeans to Over the Rainbow (101 Yorkville Ave) to donate to the United Way. You'll get 20% off a new pair of jeans, and that warm fuzzy feeling that follows giving generously.

Until the 28th, Over the Rainbow (101 Yorkville Ave) is pretty much giving away their fall/winter merchandise with prices marked at up to 70% off. Brands like Line Knitwear will be available at ridiculously low prices, so you might as well stock up on the stylish cold weather wear before it's gone for good.

The Sample Sale Guys are back at it again, coming to Toronto (read: Richmond Hill) for yet another massive designer sale over the long weekend (February 14 - 18). Get men's and women's clothing - including Nudies and Michael Kors - from 40% - 80% off at The Sheraton Hotel (600 Hwy 7 E).
