The countdown has started: Only 48 hours left before the largest outdoor fashion celebration in North America struts into Toronto

    The first edition of the FASHION AND DESIGN FESTIVAL TORONTO from
    August 23rd to 25th

    TORONTO, Aug. 21 /CNW/ - In less than 48 hours, the Fashion and Design
Festival, the largest outdoor fashion celebration in North America will set-up
stage at Yonge-Dundas Square for its first Toronto edition. The 3 day event
will showcase more than 75 designers and the latest collections of high
profile retailers to the beats of renowned DJs and live music performers - all
presented free of charge. In total 25 shows featuring more than 50 models are
getting ready to strut in order to sweep Toronto fashionistas off their feet.
"Events of this magnitude have considerable impact on the economy and tourism
of a city. We are proud to welcome the Fashion and Design Festival to
Toronto," explains Mayor Miller. "Fashion is an important part of Toronto's
identity and has made a significant contribution to Toronto's reputation
nationally and internationally as one of Canada's most fashionable cities. The
Festival is a unique channel to support our local designers and retailers by
giving them an opportunity to reach consumers directly. We're excited to
partner with the Festival to transform Yonge-Dundas Square and provide
Torontonians with an exciting event that they can attend free of charge. We
hope that this is just the first of many successful years for the Fashion and
Design Festival in Toronto."
