15 Canadian Art & Fashion Talents on the Verge

We're chatting with fresh-faced CAFA nominees about what's next for Canadian art and fashion before the awards ceremony April 15

Here at home we’re #blessed with some seriously talented designers, models, writers and photographers who have helped put Canadian style—in all its vastly different iterations—on the world stage.

To wit: Coco Rocha. Dean and Dan Caten of DSQUARED2. Tommy Ton. Erdem. All internationally-respected icons and all past winners at the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards. Now in its third year, the 2016 CAFAs—which will take place on April 15 at Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York Hotel with guest host Kim Cattrall—are a way to celebrate not only the established brands making major bank but highlight the new crop of creatives poised to take over our wardrobes and Instagram feeds.

We caught up with a handful of this year’s emerging CAFA nominees to see how they’re feeling before the big event and where they see the industry going.
