While the usual attendees of Toronto Fashion Week were likely sipping on water and aspirin, soaking their feet in epsom salts, I was enjoying the slower and relaxing atmosphere that was Fashion Saturday Presented by BMO. I was graciously invited by Conway, one of BMOs fantastic community managers and loved the perks that came with VIP access. What better way to see the best highlights of WMCFW then from the comforts of a Morrocan-themed lounge equipped with an open bar and tasty h’orderves.
PS: The silver Town Shoes mary-janes are calling out to me. Buy me, Buy me!
Nothing irritates me more than crowds. I don’t see the draw of diving into a swarm of people where manners are forgotten and its an elbows-up kind of world. While I did go down to sit in the runway room for a few of the shows, I preferred the view from up top. Most of my favorite shots came from the MasterCard lounge. One thing I do wish I had seen was a list of all the looks from the condensed mini presentations — there were some pieces I particularly loved.
I brought along my partner in crime Alex and we sipped on wine (gin and vodka at 12 PM seemed a bit much) while looking through the different booths featured on the ground floor. There was supposedly a designer shopping pop-up space, but apparently we missed the memo. Whoops! That’s okay, my credit card has been slapped silly enough this month. You should have seen the first photo booth photo we took. LOL it was so bad I could probably use it for blackmail.
Shout out to the BMO team for being amazing all around! From the ladies who greeted me to those working the floor and VIP lounge.
I’ll hopefully get around to doing a what I wore post at some point. Promise it will be before the snow lands (its comingggg!).
