For a long time big cities have been the ones to host the bigger events in the fashion industry, namely fashion week – or as we know it in Toronto, World MasterCard Fashion Week. People from all around make the trek to the downtown core to witness some of Canada’s biggest designers.
But what about people from outside the city?
It would get exhausting (I can only imagine) travelling to Toronto every time you wanted to see some good fashion, right? Well, not anymore! The city of Mississauga has taken matters into their own hands and created what they are calling Mississauga International Fashion Affair – or in other words, their own fashion week.
The launch happened on Saturday night and I was backstage to catch all the action while I helped style and dress models for my friend Paola’s jewellery line, Shilango (who had their very own set, yay!).
It was hectic backstage – which can be expected from any fashion week – but overall, for the first Mississauga Fashion Week ever, it went pretty smoothly. It can only get better from here!
