Another fabulous World MasterCard Toronto Fashion Week is now over. For the last 5 days we’ve seen 28 amazing shows from the best Canadian designers, featuring their new collections for the upcoming 2013-2014 Fall-Winter season. And if you missed some your favorite shows, you still can watch them on the official YouTube channel of World MasterCard Toronto Fashion Week.
One of the designers showcasing at this season’s Fashion Week was Christopher Bates, whose show took place on Wednesday afternoon. His new collection for men is called Bright Lights Big City and it’s inspired by our fabulous city of Toronto. Christopher’s fall collection features 16 new looks, from casual to sharply elegant.
During the show, the designer himself stepped out in front of the audience and presented the collection by introducing each of the outfits and the models who rocked them on the runway. Usually designers come out on the runway to just wave to the public for a few seconds at the end of the show, once the models have strutted the collection, but Christopher Bates came one step closer to the fashion consumers by being a part of the show. He may as well have started a new trend in the runway etiquette, and it wouldn't surprise me if other designers followed his example from now on.
