Designers at Toronto's Fashion Week depend on media coverage. And so the sidelines of the catwalks are lined with photographers — but not all are from fashion magazines or newspapers.

For this year's Fashion Week, Stefania Yarhi, a Toronto photographer and blogger at the website TextStyles, covered Toronto Fashion Week top to bottom, inside and out. Here's what it was like off and on the runways.
