Today is the first day of LG Fashion Week Beauty by L’Oréal Paris. Media, buyers and straight-up fashion lovers will gather for tonight’s by-invitation-only shows, Holt Renfrew Presents Can’t Live Without Canadian Fashion, Izma and Juma. Suffice to say, Day 1 is sure to impress.
A number of fashion weeks around the world offer interaction with consumers, whether by creating a special ticketed event, splitting the schedule into two parts (ie. industry by day, consumer by night), or planning an entire weekend of consumer activity. LG Fashion Week Beauty by L’Oréal Paris is unique in that it gives consumers access to the entire week. As far as we know, Toronto Fashion Week is still one of the only fashion weeks around the world to do this. Consumer tickets are still available for some shows.
RUNWAY: 50 to 75 tickets are available per show for consumer purchase.
PRICING: $40 for day shows, $50 for evening shows, and $200 for a day-pass.
STUDIO: Consumer tickets are not available for these shows due to size.
On Friday at 10:30 p.m., for the first time ever, there will be an encore show available to consumers featuring Line Knitwear. Here’s a glimpse at what lies ahead this week:
