Big changes are on the way in Toronto fash­ion this fall,

and we’re not just talk­ing about the usual closet switch-up that hap­pens when the sea­son turns.

Our home­grown Fash­ion Week has been sold to in­ter­na­tional show pro­ducer IMG, and the front-row pun­dits are al­ready pon­der­ing whether that de­vel­op­ment means a more united lo­cal fash­ion in­dus­try or, as the long list of pre-Fash­ion Week, off-site pre­sen­ta­tions hap­pen­ing this month sug­gests, an ex­plo­sion of even more in­die style voices? Check out what de­signer Caitlin Power (who hap­pens to be show­ing on sched­ule and on site) has to say about her new col­lec­tion on page 8.

On the store front, our ro­bust shop­ping scene is lur­ing re­tail­ers from far and far­ther to our malls and main drags. We’ve got a sneak peek inside the new Grav­ity Pope, (this page).

As far as our wardrobes go, the shifts are no less no­table. A new dark­ness in cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories is ap­pear­ing as a coun­ter­point to spring’s neon hues and lay­ered prints (yes, black is back in our fash­ion fea­ture on page 9). But so are down coats (this page) and dandy menswear (page 5).

The more fash­ion changes, the more it stays the same.
