Whether you are shopping for the girl who has everything or just for yourself, the One of a Kind Show is a shopping extravaganza where you can find one of a kind pieces, or products with very small runs handcrafted by artisans.  I was fortunate enough to have a walk through the show before the crowds arrived this morning, and I wanted to share some of my favourites with you.

Although I didn’t attend all of the shows I have sifted through all of the collections online, and wanted to share my favourites from Toronto’s F/W 2011 Rogue Fashion Week.  I must admit my computer screen gives me an amazing view, but of the shows I did attend the venue at Trump Tower was the BEST.  LuvZ | the massive windows and the blurred cityscape lit by the light of day, it was the perfect backdrop!


Philip Sparks- Canadiana Chic


Mikhael Kale – Peek-a-boo city!


Mark Fast – Ultra lush


Arthur Mendonca- Biba babe


Greta Constantine- Modern and clean


Ezra Constantine- Unpredictable Menswear

Nadege, the queen of macarons, is opening a new location!  I heard it’s going be close to Summerhill Station.  If you have been missing out on Nadege’s confections  the first location at 780 Queen West is a fab place to grab a sweet for Saturday afternoon treat, or any other day of the week.
