Canada’s fledgling fashion industry was fêted this weekend at the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards, the inaugural awards ceremony for Canadian designers, models, stylists and photographers. The show, which was held on February 1 at the Fairmont Royal York, attracted homegrown fashion heroes like Joe Mimran, Jeanne Beker and Coco Rocha, plus up-and-coming talents like photographer Tommy Ton. As for the awards, there were no real shockers, but design duo Dean and Dan Caten of Milan-based label DSquared2 cleaned up—they bagged the trophies for International Designer of the Year as well as Outstanding Achievement. Here, a slideshow of the night’s big winners.
