A platform that has given Canadian designers a chance to showcase their fashion on runways has been cancelled.
Toronto Fashion Week, which has been a space for fashion, art, music and culture, has announced that they will be reassessing the platform of their format and will be pausing their Yorkville event.
“In order to best support the needs of the fashion community here in Canada, we’ve made the very difficult decision to pause production of our biannual event in order to rethink the platform and focus on how best to engage the industry, support designers and resonate with consumers across the country,” said organizers in a statement.
“We remain steadfast in our resolve to continue to passionately support the Toronto community and champion the Canadian industry overall, as well as nurture the relationships we have built and maintained since the inception of Toronto Fashion Week, twenty years ago.”
