Countdown to Fashion Week Tips

Days spent at the tents, nights spent at The Official requires a little preparation. Here are a few suggestions to make your fashion life easier, if only for a week!

You’ll thank us later!

1. You can’t subsist on canapes alone. Prepare yourself for late nights and libations with at least one solid meal. Mildred’s Temple Kitchen, in Liberty Village, is a stone’s throw from the tents and the Official party. Book a table or just sit at the bar for a taste of their Wear Love specials all next week.

Under the bridge, go left, find Mildred at the top of the stairs….
From October 19 to 23, Mildred opens her doors to fellow fashion mavens during LG Fashion Week. Show us your ‘LOVE’ credentials and sip daily ‘Mah-velous martini’ specials in her lively Liberty Village lounge, enjoy a light ‘quickie’ for lunch or the ‘LBD’ light supper before the shows.

“Worship Flavour and Fashion” says Mildred.

2. Straighten out ladies! Get your blow out early in the week and save money at the new Cabinet salon at Queen and Portland. During their fashion week special a blow out is a friendly 25 bucks. There’s no skimping on quality either, as Cabinet uses Bumble & Bumble hair products exclusively. Designed as a gathering place as much as a stylish salon, The Cabinet will also play host to Cabinet Art – a gallery space for clients and art enthusiast to enjoy.

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!)

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.
