Just moments after picking up our media passes for World MasterCard Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2013, THE BRUNETTES headed into the studio area for an official event welcoming speech by Peter Levy of IMG World and Betty K. Devita, Mastercard Canada President, who shared some of the unique history behind Toronto Fashion Week and their plans for elevating Canada's status in the international fashion scene.
After some champagne and very tasty hors d’oeuvres, catered by Ritz Carlton Toronto, THE BRUNETTES took their seats to watch the first of three shows. The Holt Renfrew Spring/Summer 2013 collection showcased the best in designer names from Canada and abroad, while the Pink Tartan and PAVONI catwalks unveiled show-stopping Spring pieces in their feminine collections.
Between shows THE BRUNETTES hung out in the Target Media Lounge, where we caught up with actor and former MTV Canada host Dan Levy and rubbed elbows with industry insiders. We even nabbed a shot of KORHANI Home designer Kirsten Korhani, who personally invited us to her show on Wednesday after sneaking a closer look at this hot pair of heals from Aldo.
Aldo, known around the world for its affordably-chic footwear, collaborated with designer Kimberly Newport-Mimran for her Pink Tartan Spring/Summer 2013 collection, as Jana discovered from the brand's PR Director, Wendie Godbout. The two later chatted about making the perfect matching style choice by both choosing this eye-catching animal print.
When the catwalk presentations were done and the tents had closed, THE BRUNETTES made their way over to the Thompson Hotel Toronto rooftop to celebrate with the incredibly talented Adrian Wu at his Spring/Summer collection pre-party.
