This Week in Fashion: One of a Kind Show, hr2 Vaughan Mills, Prom Clothing Drive, Nike Warehouse 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.


Last week, Holt Renfrew announced the opening date for hr2's Vaughan Mills location (1 Bass Pro Mills Dr). According to the discount chain concept's temporary website, the 23,000 square foot store will be opening April 27th with specials and promotions happening all weekend long. They've also implemented a newly created Twitter profile introducing the hr2 logo.


World MasterCard Fashion Week's Stylicity campaign focuses around a handful of local retailers, their unique shopping experiences, and a special promotion in partnership with MasterCard. Pomp & Pageantry (112 Scollard St) is this month's spotlight boutique, so they're throwing a party tonight (March 27) from 6 pm until 9 pm with local designers Rachel Sin, Niki + Lola, Shay Lowe, and Michelle Ross. Plus, if you use your MasterCard, your purchase will be 20% off - a promotion extending until March 31st. RSVP to

This week (March 27 - 31), the One of a Kind Show is back on for its spring edition. Held at the Exhibition Place, the event is essentially a large convention of all crafty buyable art, photography, clothing, jewellery, food, makeup, toys, and more from over 450 vendors. This year, they're implementing a new Etsy section to bring the e-commerce website to real life, featuring 40 emerging Etsy sellers. Tickets are $14 (or $12 if purchased online) for adults, $7 for seniors and youth, and free for children under 12 years old.

Sweet Talk - an event hosted by the Women in Leadership Foundation - is a glamorous networking party for women happening tonight (6:30 pm) at the Berkeley Church (315 Queen St E). The $40 online ticket or $50 at the doors gets you a glass of vino, a makeover, a professional headshot, and a swag bag. Be sure to show up in your best heels, because Instagramming them at the event can win you a gift card to put towards even more shoes!

Tomorrow (March 28) from 7 pm until 10 pm, Sauvage (644 Queen St W) is hosting a Prom Clothing Drive to benefit students who can't afford a brand new dress or tux for prom via New Circles' annual Prom Boutique. For entry to the party (with complimentary drinks, snacks, and music by DJ Eric the Tutor!), bring along any prom-related donation including gently used dresses, blazers, trousers, shoes and accessories, and new makeup and perfume/cologne.


From today (March 27) until Sunday (March 31), the International Centre (6900 Airport Rd, Hall 6) is housing the first ever Nike warehouse sale in Toronto (well, technically it's in Mississauga, but that's close enough). Aside from the giant selection of men's, women's and children's apparel and accessories, there'll be specials, prizes, and free wi-fi for the duration of the event. Find the hours of operation and other details on the event page.

Starting Saturday (March 30) and running all the way until April 13th, Josephson Opticians is having a 50% off sale on select luxury sunglasses. The retailer - which carries the best from Mykita, Linda Farrow, and more - has six locations in Toronto, including a flagship at 60 Bloor Street West, so be sure to stop by for a fitting and a great deal.
