West Queen West must be feeling especially cool this week. According to Vogue US, it is among the 15 Coolest Neighborhoods in the World, alongside Canal Saint-Martin in Paris, Bushwick in New York City, and Tiong Bahru in Singapore. Although the criteria isn’t exactly clear, I’ve attempted to decode Vogue’s fashion speak. I think it is based on the neighborhoods that best embody the “new street style,” which steps away from attention-grabbing getups and moves towards a more utilitarian, practical but still hip look. Whatever that means, we’ll take it. Heck yeah Toronto!

It’s a quiet week for fashion events because really, who wants to compete with TIFF. Although personally, I’d pick the runway over the silver screen any day. However, the coming weeks are chock full of stylish goodness! Take a look at the list of upcoming events below and start making space in your calendar. To help you out, I’ve listed my top three picks for the rest of September:

  1. Women in Clothes: A Conversation. A Clothing Swap. A Book Launch, gravitypope (1010 Queen Street West), September 18, 7-9pm
  2. Politics of Fashion/Fashion of Politics (guest curated by Jeanne Beker), Design Exchange, September 18, 2014 – January 25, 2015
  3. Etsy: Made in Canada Day, MaRS building (101 College Street), September 27, 10am-4pm

  1. When I read about the queen street in Vogue, some how I knew you would mention this. I totally want to go to Fashion Blows and the Catwalk to Closet event!
