Score looks from Toronto Fashion Week designers during Gilt’s online sale
Toronto Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015, which begins this evening, will bring with it a slew of springtime shows from Canadian labels. For those who’d like to bag the designer looks on the cheap, American shopping site Gilt is holding a five-day flash sale devoted to north-of-the-border style. Each day this week, Gilt will hawk apparel from a different Toronto Fashion Week participant. Today’s deal is Sid Neigum, a Toronto-based designer with a minimalist, architectural aesthetic. During the rest of the week, shoppers will be able to stock up on items like cool, laid-back apparel from Beaufille (October 24), ethically hand-crafted basics from Laura Siegel (October 22) and made-in-Canada outerwear from Soia and Kyo (October 23). At up to 60 per cent off, this is a great opportunity to support Canadian fashion and snap up looks from talented local designers, whose work can be pricey and hard to find at Toronto boutiques. An added plus? All prices include duties, so your credit card statement won’t contain any surprises. As with all flash sales, shoppers should hit the site early to take advantage of the best possible selection.
