Street Style: Torontonians of all types converge at Yonge-Dundas Square
Yonge-Dundas Square can be a polarizing intersection for many Torontonians: for some, it’s a great place to take in a free concert; for others, an obnoxious tourist trap surrounded by too many billboards. Regardless, pedestrians can usually count on some sort of entertainment, whether it’s a flash mob or an art show (or an angry soapbox rant). On a midweek lunch hour we took in an Afro-fusion dance-off followed by a rock show from the Tyler Shaw Band as part of FIFA Fan Fest. Milling about the square were retired people-watchers, off-duty mascots dressed in head-to-toe rainbow print and, of course, professional-looking nine-to-fivers grabbing a bite to eat. Here are some of the most diverse looks we came across.
