The Fashion Design Council of Canada has released the schedule for the Fall 2011 shows at Toronto’s LG Fashion Week. The five-day event, which returns for another season to Heritage Court at Toronto’s Exhibition Place, is slated to run between March 28 and April 2. As has been the case for the past few seasons, we expect the week leading up to fashion week proper to be packed with off-site showings. (We’ve already received one invite: Philip Sparks, who will show his women’s and men’s collections on March 21.)

The official shows feature the usual blockbusters Pink Tartan, Joe Fresh and Bustle and some welcome returns in the form of Line Knitwear, sister duo Chloe Comme Parris and Amanda Lew Kee, who all had strong first outings last season.

New names to watch this season are Edmonton’s Sid Neigum, who has interned with Yigal Azrouël in New York, Toronto Fashion Incubator residents Label, and lingerie label Diepo.

The full schedule is below. We’ll be covering the on- and off-site shows daily at flare.com/fashionweek
