It’s Official. We’re Throwing a Party.

They say the only constant in fashion is that everything changes. The same can be said about fashion weeks in Toronto. Between a new venue, new designers, and new restrictions on which shows are available to the public, there is plenty of change to LG Fashion Week’s Spring 2010 calendar.

One more change to your fashion week….

Join the F-list Monday through Friday, October 19 – 23, for The Official. It’s fashion week’s biggest party all week, every night at Maro in Liberty Village. We kick off a new season of Designer Spotlights with up and coming designers like Abel Munoz, one of Canada’s few haute shoe designers. Enjoy fashion installations, beauty bars, footage from the runway shows care of Fashion Television, guest dj’s and MORE! Every night is different and always open to the public.

And since Maro is around the corner from the LG Fashion Week tents, we’re throwing out the red carpet for all of fashion week. No cover if you show your LG Fashion Week laminate!

DOORS OPEN 8PM NIGHTLY….stay all night and strike a pose for the cameras! (It’s fashion week, of course there will be cameras!)

Here is just a TASTE of how we kick off our first official Official!

Monday, October 19
Dress to Kill magazine Toronto launch party
Designer spotlight with 2009 TFI New Labels winner, Faren Tami

Officially Unofficial

It’s Official – we’re trying something new this fashion week! The F-list will be hosting a new nightly after party at Maro in the Liberty Village, just steps away from the LG Fashion Week tents. Each night of fashion week, Monday through Friday, we will merge fashion, music, art and beauty into a thumping evening of celebration.

It’s a party for the public, fashion insiders and designers to show off their Canadian fashion swagger. You won’t want to miss it.

Details to come! And if you’re looking for tickets to LG Fashion Week, check out www.lgfashionweek.ca.

Where Fashion Sells out to Celebrity

Trashing celebrities’ private lives has become such a multi-faceted business, Perez Hilton had to start a whole new web site just to dish on their fashion. The new blog, apparently the intersection “Where Celebrity Meets Fashion,” is named for Perez’s new fashion alter ego CocoPerez. When not doing trend reports on denim (so convenient when the site is “presented by the Gap” and blanketed by their ads), Perez comments on celebrity style. And with Kenny Chesney starting a clothing line (true!) and Rachel Zoe pimping for QVC at NYC Fashion Week, the celebrity fashion well does not show signs of running dry.

Did Perez really need to separate the “who’s canoodling whom” from the “who’s wearing what?” (No.) Is there value in a celebrity’s ties to fashion? (Sometimes.) From a designer’s perspective it is an incredible coup to have your creations worn by a celeb and seeing their red carpet poses pop up in magazines or on television. While it’s not the reason designers design, it is an undeniable thrill.

Now THAT we can get behind. So in a continuation of our mandate to show Canadian designers love, the F-list is launching a new feature next month with photos of Who Wore What (a.k.a. the triple dubya) in each edition of the F Word. We’ll show off recognizable faces wearing their favourite Canadian designs. Have a photo to share? Send to designer@f-list.ca.

Oh, and you don’t have to call me Coco.
