Canada Fashion Group announces fashion week details
today Jun 30, 2017
Toronto Men's Fashion Week (TOM*) and Toronto Women's Fashion Week (TW) will once again be getting a new home.
Canada Fashion Group (CFG) announced on Thursday upcoming dates and a new venue for its two leading fashion weeks, which will see TOM* take place September 26 to October 1 and TW on October 2 to 7.
One Yonge has been selected to be the new venue for both showcases. TOM* moved to Waterworks at 505 Richmond Street for its Fall/Winter 2017 Season, where the inaugural season of TW also took place.
Prior to that TOM* was held at the Mattamy Athletic Centre, formerly known as Maple Leaf Gardens.
"I anticipate that One Yonge will be one of the best fashion week venues we've ever seen. With its high ceilings and massive size, it lends itself beautifully to a fashion week event," said Jeff Rustia, Founder and CEO, Canada Fashion Group and Executive Director of TOM* and TW, in a news statement.
CFG has confirmed that TOM*s Celebrity Walk-a-thon, a charitable initiative baptized MensFashion4Hope, will once again take place, as will the Emerging Menswear Designer Award.
Meanwhile, TW will include the inaugural launch of WomensFashion4Hope as well as Canada Style 150, a runway presentation featuring 150 years of Canadian fashion in celebration of the nation's 150 birthday.
Last summer the faith of Toronto Fashion Week was unclear when IMG Canada, pulled the plug on the semi-annual fashion showcase due to a lack of local support.
The founders of TOM* later announced the launch of Toronto Women's Fashion Week, inaugurated last season.
