“The unique blend of fashion, art and culture make this festival a true mirror of the city of Toronto,” says Vanja Vasic, Executive Director of |FAT|. “The festival’s unique vision in presenting diverse perspectives in an inclusive environment, make this event a perfect backdrop for showcasing the immense talent from Canada and around the world.”
The lFATl attitude comes to life again this year at our new festival location - a former industrial warehouse located at 213 Sterling Road - Toronto's new up-and-coming arts & design district. Models will stomp their heels on an 80 foot-long runway featuring 52 innovative fashion collections from top designers within Canada and abroad.
|FAT| is the first festival of its kind to present fashion through a broad range of disciplines including - design, film, photography, arts and performance - all under one roof. The festival puts Canada on the fashion world stage as an innovative force to be reckoned with.
