This Week in Fashion: Acne Studios Trunk Show, Etsy Springtime Marketplace, Gsus Sindustries Pop-Up Shop

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.


Peruse Acne Studios' pre-fall 2013 collection with drinks and good company at a trunk show tomorrow (May 30). Head to Jonathan + Olivia (49 Ossington Ave) from 2 pm until 8 pm to sip on Peroni (or Perrier) with the Acne NY team, all while enjoying a 30% discount on all spring/summer 2013 goods.

Sylvie and Shimmy - a new womenswear boutique - is opening in Parkdale (1640 Queen St W) on Saturday (June 1) and they want everyone celebrating! From 11 am until 7 pm on opening day, refreshments and treats will be provided while you take a gander at their stock - including clothing and accessories by Cry Wolf, 1% Talent, and more. But try to arrive earlier rather than later; the first 50 customers will receive a gift with purchase!

On Saturday (June 1), 918 Bathurst will be home to Toronto Etsy Street Team's 4th annual Springtime Marketplace. With over 40 handmade vendors and vintage sellers, it's a great (and fun) way to support small businesses -- find one-of-a-kind jewellery, art, clothing, and baked goods, all while dancing to a live DJ and participating in free workshops from 11 am until 5:30 pm.

Toronto-based e-boutique ShopThursdays is coming out of their on-screen shell next month for a real life pop-up shop at 5 Macpherson Avenue. Every day from June 1st through 30th, the store's sassy and affordable womenswear can be seen, felt, and purchased. Afterwards, their pieces can be found online - with free shipping in Canada!

If you're a fashion entrepreneur looking to enhance your skills, mingle with like-minded individuals at FAJO Magazine's Fashion, Business & Beyond presentation. Vawk designer Sunny Fong and journalist Hannah Yakobi will be sharing their tried-and-true secrets to success at ING Direct Network Orange (221 Yonge St) next Tuesday (June 4) at 6 pm -- so be sure to snatch a $58 ticket to secure a spot in the audience.


From tomorrow (May 30) until Saturday (June 1), Gsus Sindustries is having a pop-up shop in their local showroom (553 Richmond St W). Have a looksee at their spring/summer 2013 collection - plus, bring an old Gsus clothing article to donate to Yonge Street Mission and receive 15% off on a new piece of denim.

It's Biko Jewellery's one-year anniversary and there's no better way to celebrate than with a sample sale! From tomorrow (May 30) until Friday (May 31), the Biko studio (174 Spadina Ave, Unit #411) will be filled to the brim with edgy, hand-crafted pieces for as low as $10.

For one day only next Monday (June 3), Kultura (169 King St E) will be hosting Rebekah Price's annual summer sale. From 11 am until 7 pm, you can get your hands on extravagantly bedazzled jewellery for up to 75% off.
