CALLING ALL FASHIONISTAS! Get ready to shop and party the night away on the streets of Toronto tonight.
Three years later, Toronto is FINALLY getting a taste of one of the most iconic, celebrated events in fashion. Fashion’s Night Out began in New York back in 2009 by Vogue and the CFDA, as an international initiative to save the fashion industry in the midst of the economic recession. In other words, to give us an excuse to shop after hours, mingle with good-looking people, network with the biggest names in Canadian fashion, and get free drinks – all in just one night.
Here are our party picks for this evening:
