All eyes are on the runway, sure. But they're also on every last fashion editor, make-up girl or confused civilian who wanders past the tents. We're referring to what happens during Toronto World Mastercard Fashion Week
, and another round of shows is approaching. October 21 - 26 the event will dominate the city's David Pecaut Square -- located right across the street from our CBC HQ.
No, no. Don't answer yet. We've had a few ideas we'd like to share first. They're not snatched from some other international runway, and we're not cribbing what your favourite fashion bible is decreeing the must-wear look of the season.
Instead, we're drawing inspiration from what we know best: the CBC.
We'll post new fashion inspiration boards -- linked to our favourite CBC characters or shows -- in the days ahead.
First up, something for the chill, tomboyish fashion blogger -- the gal who was weaned on daily reruns of The Beachcombers (because that's the only reason we can think of for why people insist on wearing their toques that way).
This one probably smells nicer than Relic's.
A nod to the marine life lurking below the Persephone.
A bit of metallic flare isn't Relic's style, but it's totally yours.
4. Wool socks (Everywhere your grandpa likes to shop)
Fashionistas and beachcombers alike should keep their tootsies toasty.
5. "Through the Looking Glass" Necklace (Liz Law)
If Nick, Jesse and Relic weren't so busy pulling in logs, maybe they could find some sunken treasure like this eclectic statement piece.
6. Leather Ankle Boots with Buckled Straps (Zara)
You could put in a day's work wearing these rugged booties -- even with that that four-inch heel.
7. Military Shirt Dress (ASOS)
Every woman needs a simple shirt dress in their closet. Surely even Molly would agree.
Toronto World Mastercard Fashion Week runs October 21 - 26.
