Fashion beyond borders

The latest spring and summer styles may be the main draw, but with new organizers at the helm and a roster of emerging designers, changes are afoot behind the scenes and on the runway at Toronto’s Fashion Week. World MasterCard Fashion Week kicks off Monday under the makeshift tents at David Pecaut Square, where Canadian designers will unveil their style visions for the warmer months. The new season will mark the first with IMG Canada holding the ownership reins. The company had previously been involved in consulting closely with the event since 2010, said Peter Levy, senior vice-president and managing director for IMG Fashion Events and Properties. For 13 years, Fashion Week was owned and produced by the Fashion Design Council of Canada. IMG Canada will now operate the event in collaboration with IMG Fashion, with fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Tokyo among those within its portfolio. While the event is focused on highlighting the homegrown fashion scene, organizers say they are giving thought to how to help boost the profiles of de-signers – even beyond Canada’s borders. “We don’t make clothes or take pictures, walk the runway or tell the story about ourselves. But what we Continue reading

Toronto runway highlights and trends at World MasterCard Fashion Week as well as “renegade” fashion shows that happened in March. (QMI AGENCY) The makeup and hair looks throughout Toronto Fashion Week ran the gamut from edgy and goth-inspired to minimal and androgynous to soft and sweet. Despite the variety, there were definite trends established amongst the gallery of shows.  While World MasterCard Fashion Week descended on Toronto, Business Review Canada has decided to take a look at the Canadian haute couture clothing companies that bring high fashion to the masses and even surprising styles of clothing such as jackets or yoga pants were some of the  featured new elements at the fashion shows. Vancouver Fashion Week Various venues While still a lower-key event than Toronto’s, Vancouver Fashion Week’s glam factor is on the rise, with a gala at the Opus Hotel, and runway shows at the Chinese Cultural Center showcasing collections  – – View Gallery of Photos from Toronto shows.

Rad Hourani

Rad Hourani says, “is someone who does not follow a trend.”

Fashion Week Toronto: After leaving Montreal for Paris six years years ago to launch his eponymous couture collection label, designer Rad Hourani is heading back to Canada on Friday to make his Canadian fashion week runway debut with his fifth collection of ready-to-wear line RAD at Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week. As part of the runway presentation, Hourani will also debut his new short film Five Years of Rad Hourani as the show’s opener, documenting designer Rad Hourani inspirations as he celebrates his fifth year in the cutthroat industry. “I’m inspired by the idea of creating something that can’t be defined by a limited category and things that have no reference from the past,” says the Jordan-born Rad Hourani, who moved to Montreal at 16 before leaving for Paris in Continue reading

Toronto Fashion Week: Despite the wall-to-wall crowds, the start of Toronto World Master Card Fashion Week show is generally a slow burn, with things not getting properly fired up until at least day 2. However, the parade of the fall/winter 2012 fashion week collections show – again held in the city’s David Pecaut Square – started out with a bang, or rather, a tap. A jovial tap dancer kicked off Holt Renfrew’s biannual fashion week show with some of its favorite homegrown labels, coaxing smiles out of even the front row’s poker faces here in Toronto Canada. – – See more Fashion Week show

2010 was a busy year for Carrie Underwood

Not only did she make her film debut, guest-star on CBS' 'How I Met Your Mother,' earn a Golden Globe nomination and marry hunky hockey player Mike Fisher, the songstress also managed to perform for the one million fans who came out to see her on the road. The tour, which opened in March, consisted of 108 shows throughout the U.S. and Canada.  "We're kind of going for broke on this one just because I feel like it's time," Carrie told the Associated Press. "At this point, the only thing it's about is putting on a great show, and we're going out with that in mind. I definitely think we have delivered."Not only did she make her film debut, guest-star on CBS’How I Met Your Mother,’ earn a Golden Globe nomination and marry hunky hockey player Mike Fisher, the songstress also managed to perform for the one million fans who came out to see her on the road.

I definitely think we have delivered.” The show is currently nominated for the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards’ Most Creative Stage Production, something Carrie may have foresaw last spring. “As far as things getting bigger, it’s just that,” she said prior to the tour kick off. “The stage is bigger, there are more lights, and there are more tricks up our sleeve. We have a lot of moving parts on the stage. It’s really cool. It’s just a lot of stuff. My band’s great. Wardrobe’s great. It’s just more. It’s all of the bells and whistles and sprinkles on the cupcake.”
