LG Fashion Week


wear love : spring 2010 collections october 19-24 2009

Twice a year, Toronto hosts its internationally acclaimed fashion week.  Presented by LG & L’Oréal Paris, hosted by the Fashion Design Council of Canada (celebrating its 11th year), the city is engulfed with everything fashion, galas and most importantly, the fashionista’s and fashionisto’s of Toronto come out to celebrate our designers.  But, along with all the celebrations, there’s one crucial factor that comes to play during Fashion Week.  It is a platform for home grown designers to show their work on an international stage, while buyers and editors from all over the world are observing.  The week itself is a catalyst for their collections to be picked up by major retailers, while our city is being recognized for its creativity by a global audience.

So, on October 19 2009, once again, Toronto presents its creative innovation and our city’s unique chicness to the world.  This season marks a new beginning for Toronto Fashion Week as it moves to a new location located in the über-cool neighbourhood of King West.  With a month left until the lights shine upon our home grown designers and our city’s fashion know-how, we have the current run-down on Fashion Week, its schedule, designers and more on the new home of Toronto Fashion Week.

The Fashion Design Council of Canada (FDCC) on September 4th announced that LG Fashion Week Beauty by L’Oréal Paris is moving to a brand new location in the stylish neighbourhood of King West at 1030 King Street West.

“I am pleased to announce that we are moving to a new venue and creating a new home for the collections. The event has grown significantly and we are exhilarated by the opportunity to expand the space and allow for more participating designers, audiences and to keep our runway to the world totally fresh and current.” Robin Kay, President of the Fashion Design Council of Canada and Executive Director LG Fashion Week


The Spring 2010 Collections, unveiled the week of October 19th to 24th, will come alive with all things fashion on King Street West.  Utilizing the entire 2 acres of the new site, the FDCC has forwarded their fashionable footprint West with a new layout which utilizes the original Roman‐styled structure and columns while seamlessly integrating the addition of the signature fashion tents.  The new layout, comprised of the tents and permanent structure, will add the opportunity and ability to create new spaces for new events at LG Fashion Week.  From the 15,000 square foot networking environment to the larger Runway Room, the FDCC believes the on‐street location will provide easy access for all industry to attend.
