Toronto Style & Fashion Calendar: March 25-31

 

It’s a fantastic fashion week! There are plenty of shows, tours, contests, and workshops to choose from. I’m a busy bee with school and work, so I’ve had to limit myself to following World MasterCard Fashion Week on Instagram while still making time for the One of a Kind Show this Thursday. The view from afar isn’t so bad though. How gorgeous are these looks from Sid Neigum and Mélissa Nepton that I’ve reposted above? It’s the stuff style dreams are made of!
