Toronto fashion week gets a new venue (for the second time in a month)
Just two weeks ago, the Fashion Design Council of Canada announced that a “trendy” warehouse would serve as the permanent home for Toronto fashion week runway shows. But this afternoon, we received a press release explaining a last-minute venue change:
Over the last decade, LG Fashion Week has experienced enormous expansion and requires a much larger canvas to articulate its vision. Our previously announced location, 30 Ordnance, was a romantic idea; however, further in-depth inspections revealed significant logistical challenges.
The new venue will be the Allstream Centre at Exhibition Place, which the FDCC says will allow for a larger media lounge, more seating, a large runway and a retail space stocked with Canadian designs.
It’s a late change; fashion week begins on March 28, and the press release announcing the change appears to have been hastily put together, with editing marks left in the margins—see below.
