Bayview Post - - Life -

There seems to be a frenzy of Fash­ion Week fever in Toronto this month with events rang­ing from Toronto Fash­ion Week (TFW) in Yorkville, to Toronto Men’s Fash­ion Week (TOM), Sept. 26 to Oct. 1 down­town, and Re\Set Fash­ion at the Great Hall on Queen West. Here’s a guide to some of the de­sign­ers who will be show­ing and where to get your hands on the per­fect Fash­ion Week out­fit.

FUN AND FRESH STREETWEAR

Get Fresh is get­ting a fresh start with an open­ing night TOM run­way show on Sept. 29 at 5 p.m. Owner Je­bril Jal­loh launched his first ever spring col­lec­tion ear­lier this year, and says this 2018 spring col­lec­tion he will be show­ing at TOM will fo­cus both on menswear and streetwear. Jal­loh’s take on more pol­ished streetwear in­cludes em­broi­dered hood­ies and coach jack­ets with a fo­cus on high-qual­ity fab­rics, unique fits and suave cuts. Get Fresh is also work­ing on a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Puma to put out two pairs of sneak­ers on Nov. 24, work­ing off a body that The Weeknd is in­tro­duc­ing in Septem­ber but adding its own unique twist. Get Fresh Com­pany, 498 Queen St. W.

ANDROGYNY MEETS FEM­I­NIN­ITY

Your Choice has been a pur­veyor of high-end women’s fash­ion since 1975. De­sign­ers fea­tured at Your Choice of­ten push the bound­aries of what is so­cially ac­cept­able. This sea­son, look no fur­ther than TFW fea­tured Unt­tld’s Fall 2017 col­lec­tion. The Mon­treal-based brand is a lux­ury line that leans strongly to­ward androgyny but with cuts that seem to ac­cent a woman’s fea­tures, giv­ing her a bold look from head to toe. Unt­tld favours shades of black and white rather than stark colour schemes, lend­ing an edge to each fan­tas­tic piece. Catch Unt­tld’s run­way show in Yorkville on Sept. 6 at 6:30 p.m. Your Choice, Bayview Vil­lage

WHERE ART AND FASH­ION COL­LIDE

There are very few Cana­dian bou­tiques that base their es­thetic on con­tem­po­rary Cana­dian art, yet All About Eve em­braces it. Paint­ings by the Cana­dian artist John Scott and light in­stal­la­tions by Sakis fit along seam­lessly with eclec­tic de­sign­ers like Casa Como, It Fitz Me and Hi­lary MacMil­lan. MacMil­lan is also show­ing her spring/sum­mer 2018 col­lec­tion Sept. 5 to 6 at Re\Set. Her col­lec­tion has a trop­i­cal Span­ish feel with green palm prints and blue-and-white striped bird and flo­ral motifs. For more of a fall vibe, pick up the over­sized knit with tie clo­sure sweater and silky duster. All About Eve Bou­tique, 602 Dan­forth Ave.
