This week, Fashion Art Toronto (or FAT, as it’s known by industry insiders), has taken over Daniels Spectrum with its annual festival devoted to fashion’s experimental side. In addition to runway shows from avant-garde designers like Project Runway winner Evan Biddell (whose latest collection is inspired by androgynous cyborgs and galactic beings), the week-long event also showcases art installations, photo and video exhibits and live performances. While Toronto Fashion Week tends to bring together socialites and magazine editors, FAT attracts a far more eclectic crowd of creatives. We saw artists, designers and students showing off a mixture of bold, futuristic looks combined with classic, vintage pieces. Here, 10 edgy outfits spotted outside Fashion Art Toronto.
