If New York is the Big Apple, then Toronto is a smaller sized plum at best. The self-proclaimed center of Canada is often compared to the universally-elected center of the universe, but as Steve Martin declared in an episode of 30 Rock, ”Toronto is just like New York but without all the stuff.” This was evident at Toronto’s 10th incarnation of its very own homegrown Fashion Week, this time sporting the clunky official title “LG Fashion Week Beauty by L’Oreal.” This year’s theme of “Show Love” was pleasantly optimistic, if not predictably Canadian in its unabashed sentimentality, and the overwrought use of pink and red hearts as the major aesthetic motif was a little much for a celebration of high fashion.
But I digress. Fashion Week, whether it’s in Toronto or New York, is about the clothes, and in this arena the designers did little to disappoint.
