This Week in Fashion: Clothing Brand Experiment calls it quits, Vitaly Design pop-up, Puma 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.


Vitaly Design - a local unisex jewellery brand with an eco-conscience - is hosting their first ever pop-up shop and sample sale at Oz Studios (134 Ossington Ave). While current and past collections will be priced at up to 75% off, guests will also have a chance to preview the "Elements" collection of high-quality titanium pieces. Partnered with other accessory brands like Varsity Brown and Felony Case, the event starts today (April 17) and runs until Monday (April 22).

After 5 years in the game, Clothing Brand Experiment - a company best known for its signature hoodies and limited edition collaborations - decided to hang up their hat; to wrap things up on a high note and throw a party at their studio (116 Geary St). Happening tomorrow (April 18) from 7 pm until 10 pm, the event promises giveaways for the first 20 people to arrive, plus drinks and snacks for everyone celebrating! Be sure to also visit their online shop for a chance to score a sweet deal on the last few hoodies in stock.

This Saturday (April 20), three forces are coming together to host an extravaganza of a flash sale at Gladstone Hotel's Art Bar (1214 Queen St W). For one day only, The Black Box Boutique's unique jewellery, Homegrown Boutique's Canadian-designed clothing, and The Pop Shop's edible delights will all be shoppable in one place from 10 am until 6 pm.

Join Paper People Clothing at Fresh Collective (692 Queen St W) on Monday (April 22) to participate in a little eco-friendly, clothing-swapping fun. If you ladies have 1 - two pieces of gently used clothing you're ready to part with, bring it over at 6:15 pm and leave with a (sort of) new set of garments. Plus, there'll be a chance to shop Paper People's latest sustainable creations and have a one-on-one session with style coaches! Find out more and RSVP through the official event page.

This Monday (April 22), reduce your fashion footprint with Fashion Forward - a relatively new online marketplace that allows users to sell unwanted pieces of clothing via free local classifieds. The sustainability-promoting website is hosting a shopping event at Town Shoes on Bloor (95 Bloor St W) highlighting a handful of exhibitors including Pomp & Pageantry and Stella & Dot. To attend the two-hour affair running from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm, register online and bring along a professional pair of shoes or clothing to donate to Dress For Success.

Next week from Tuesday (April 23) until Saturday (April 27) marks the eight annual |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week - a multi-faceted festival celebrating contemporary art and design through 50 runway shows, performances, short films, photography, and art installations. Both the $30 day pass and $80 week pass are well worth the price - the notoriously conceptual creations are typically enough weird/wacky/awesome inspiration to last the whole year.


The Puma Warehouse and Sample Sale is running from today (April 17) until Sunday (April 21) at Markham Fair Grounds (10801 McCowan Rd). According to StyleDemocracy, it's going to be epic with a full size range of men's, women's, and children's clothing at up to 80% off.
