World MasterCard Fashion Week takes place at David Pecaut Square, at King Street West at John Street, between Metro Hall and Roy Thomson Hall.
It’s that time of year again! Calendars are being circled, outfits are being selected, and pens are poised. World MasterCard Fashion Week is around the corner and fashion takes centre stage in Toronto!
This season we are pleased to move forward with World MasterCard as our new title sponsor, allowing us to further develop fashion week in Toronto as an event on the global fashion agenda.
This season, David Pecaut Square will once again be our home! With glittering skyskrapers in the background and the cultural hub of Roy Thompson Hall next door, we can’t think of a more fitting location to construct our fashion environment. This season we are creating over 30 000 square feet of tent space with a 100 ft catwalk in the main room and seating for 900! We’re bringing back the intimate Studio Space with an entire wall of glass windows allowing passers by the chance to peek at all the excitement!
Last season we had so much fun giving our top fashion fans tickets that we’re doing it again! Look for details on Facebook and Twitter on our streetstyle competition.
The calendar is now live and all passes are available for purchase. Be sure to follow us on twitter for up to the second details and we’ll see you on the catwalk!
