EVENT - [FAT] Fashion Art Toronto #SIDEBUYxFAT

by - Monday, May 16, 2016

In April, I was able to attend FAT - Fashion Art Toronto thanks to SideBuy. FAT is a 5 day fashion and art show that features Canadian and International fashion designers and artists according to the theme of the day. The event is held at Daniel's Spectrum in Downtown Toronto where doors open at 5:30pm, and the first of 3 fashion shows start at 7pm and runs until about 10:30pm. In between shows, there are a mix of video clips, musical performances and half hour intermissions. 
In comparison to Toronto Fashion Week, FAT is definitely more entertaining but also more time consuming. Both days I went, the shows did not start until 7:30pm and intermission resulted in long bar lines, washroom lines and the high chance that your seat will be taken so you'll have to stand for the rest of the next runway show. Although it was a bit unorganized, it was still fun to attend and I would definitely go again if given the chance.
 
Here are some the designers that stood out most to me: 

TUESDAY - UN DRESS

I love the combination of black lace and bright flowers. I also love that With Love Lingerie included models of all sizes!

Elizabeth Elwood created beautiful lingerie dresses and played with different textures and materials. This was my favourite piece and it looks absolutely stunning. 

WEDNEDAY - GENDER WEAR

Evan Biddell's show REBEL was a pretty cool tribute to David Bowie where some models rocked down the runway. Paired with the liveliness and energy of the crowd, this runway show was definitely memorable.

Sun Sun's street style clothing was super trendy and hip. This show definitely got the crowd going with the models walking and dancing down the runway to songs by popular artists like Beyonce. I loved that each model did a pose or dance move halfway down the strip and were able to add their own little twist to the show. Another bonus - curvy women!

Let's be friends!
