Fashion Art Toronto [FAT] is an alternative fashion week dedicated to showcasing artistic, creative, outside of the box and above all unique up and coming designers. This is a week where anything goes. Designers pull out all the stops, guests go crazy with their outfits and above all everyone involved is in for a week to remember. F&B Inc was in attendance for [FAT] on Thursday April 24th and with camera (and microphone) in hand I was ready to tackle the crazy fashion scene and bring all of you lovely readers an exclusive look at the fashions of [FAT]! Within the next few days stay tuned for runway reviews, videos and of course tons of photos from [FAT].
The backstage vibe at [FAT] was absolutely crazy! In a tiny loft models waited patiently, jewels of perspiration lining their foreheads, waiting for a member of Bourgie (hair stylist, makeup artist and fashion stylist agency) to prepare them for their show. Many of the models at [FAT] were walking in several shows and hence the nerves of the up and coming quick changes and stress of maintaining a perfect evening were contagious. Hair looks for the night ranged from teased manes to painted hairlines. The cosmetics department was just as busy as bold smoky eyes for he girls and serrated painted-on wounds were in order for the guys.
With front row seats, the evening was guaranteed to be top-notch. The theme of the night was masculine/ feminine and the runway shows that were about to unfold after I had taken my seat at the head of the runway played with the male/female inspiration. Artsy, unique and jaw-dropping was the perfect way to sum up a fabulously creative night! Check out the video bellow for a closer look at all the backstage excitement…
