It was official announced today that Robin Kay, President of Fashion Design Council of Canada (FDCC) also creator and Executive Director of World MasterCard Fashion Week has sold Toronto Fashion week to IMG Canada. IMG Canada will be operating with IMG Fashion to make Fashion week better than it ever was. With their international success it will be nice to see how they will elevate this event. Robin Kay will remain president of the FDCC and continue to support Canadian designers and consultant with the event.
“Creating Fashion Week in Toronto was a career dream for me as I was able to translate my skills as a designer and retailer into a celebration of Canadian fashion that has supported so many talented people to find an audience and a global runway. In business, timing is everything, and I am confident that the time is right for IMG to take World MasterCard Fashion Week to the next level,” said Robin Kay. “I have no plans to disappear and I will remain committed to helping and nurturing Canadian designers shine on the catwalk.”
“I’ve worked with Robin for eight years on Fashion Week and it truly couldn’t have been done without her energy, vision and support,” said Joe Mimran, founder and creative director of Joe Fresh Style and chairman of the Fashion Design Council of Canada Board of Directors. “I look forward to seeing Fashion Week evolve and grow as it leverages IMG’s global infrastructure and expertise.”
I think this is just the change that World MasterCard Fashion Week needed to bump up this event more internationally since it is the second largest fashion week in North America.
Im glad to be able to finally share with everyone that Maybelline New York is our new Beauty sponsor for World Mastercard Toronto Fashion week! Grace Lee is Maybelline’s New York Lead Makeup Artist, Canada and will be creating hundreds of hot looks for the catwalk!

Kirk and Stephan have pulled it off again. While arriving to Greta Constantine, the much anticipated opening of Toronto Fashion season was exciting. The energy was buzzing and the place was packed with Celebrities, Socialites, bloggers and Industry insiders. Filling the seats we waited for the show to start. The show was beautiful with great clean lines; bold colors and what we know and love best about their clothes are clean and crisp draping. I hope you enjoy the pictures I took sitting front row and watch out for these amazing clothes to make a splash this Spring/Summer 2012
During LGFW Fall/Winter 2011 I got to meet Deborah Cox and hang out with her for the evening, she was such a pleasure to meet.I had a really great evening and looking up to her amazing talent as a artist since I was young just made this experience out of this world. She was there for the Attitude show by Jay Manuel which was a great display of his talent. We had a great time backstage and it was like a childhood dream fulfilled. Hope you enjoy the pictures, until next time.
