Blah. Toronto Fashion Week. Blah. Yawn.

Oh Dear.

Are you excited by the Toronto Fashion Week yet? No? Yeah, I didn't think so. When half the runway shows are presented by Project Runway Canada contestants, it's hard to feel excited. It's a bit like buying frozen food and pretending it's fine dining. Don't get me wrong, some of these designers are talented (Evan Biddell, Sunny Fong) and I did enjoy the show (Iman is awesome) but is there any other way to get discovered than Reality TV?
Surely, not all the designers worthy of Fashion Week in Canada end up on Project Runway. So where is the rest?

The LG Fashion Week has also exciting events such as "VIA Rail announcement", runway shows from SEARS and unknown Romanian designers. Wow. I don't know about you, guys, but I would totally buy tickets to see SEARS crappy clothes on display in a fashion show, instead of going to the mall. The lights, the music, it makes it all worthwhile.

My favorite Project Runway Canada contestant was showing his latest collection too. You know the "designer" who had never heard of YVES SAINT-LAURENT, the one and only: Brandon R. Dwyer. Pouffy skirts, boring designs and ugliness galore. He's definitely not the next Yves Saint-Laurent.

I'm sure there are many talented designers out there who could show at this Fashion Week, but by looking at the sorry state of this event, there is a lot of work to do in terms of training and promoting Canadian designers. The LG Toronto Fashion Week ends tonight.
