With the holiday season fast approaching, it seems like there isn’t a free weekend from now until 2011 but we have an event that’s worth shuffling your schedule around for. In the spirit of giving, fashion is giving back at the Toronto Fashion Incubator’s (TFI) first annual fundraiser, Behind the Scenes with Canada’s Top Fashion Designers. Three award-winning Canadian designers, David Dixon, Joeffer Caoc and Lucian Matis, will showcase their spring 2011 collections, followed by intimate behind-the-scenes presentations.
All members and alumni of the TFI, these designing dudes will continue the non-profits tradition of supporting and nurturing budding Canadian design talent. The event will raise funds for the New Labels Fashion Design Competition — FLARE’S Lisa Tant is on the panel of judges — that awards the next Canadian design star $10,000. The fashionable fete will be held on November 9th at the prestigious Rosedale Integral House in Toronto and tickets are $100 per person. To purchase tickets, contact (416) 971-7117 or visit www.fashionincubator.com.
