This season, I broke out as an accredited blogger – I received many glares as my bearded, lumberjack exterior graced the front rows of many shows, but seeing as I was there to be heard (or in this case, read) and not seen, I returned the “who does he think he is” glances with a patented Kevin half-smile. I was working for BlogTO this season, an outlet that believes in free expression – if I liked a show or didn’t, my review was honest.
Stay tuned for Dimitri Chris and The Ryerson School of Fashion presents Come Dine with Me.
In the meantime, I would like to post some personal pictures. It was a great week, but a tiring one – the kind of week that doesn’t end and could only be fueled by proper nourishment. For some reason, the FDCC believes that charging 2 dollars for a banana is an allowable markup. Oh, bananas aren’t your bag? Try a miniscule chicken or vegetable sandwich for 8 dollars. The reason food was such a major concern for the media was the considerable distance from the Allstream Centre to any kind of food seller – at the CNE grounds, there are zero options. Zero.
What did I see? Black, lots of it.
Menswear for the Brant House boys…
and some creative student fashion from the Ryerson class of I don’t know when (the program didn’t say), just to name a few of the shows that graced the runway this season.
For a week of fashion, I am sad to report that there wasn’t much to go gaga over. Check out my reviews for BlogTO to see full collections and see if you agree. I am sure you will.
