YouNxt is Getting FAT

By Izabela Stabinska

While visiting FAT – Arts & Fashion Week last year, I was highly impressed by how different this event was from the typical “fashion week.”

Each evening consists of a medley of fashion shows, photography exhibitions, art installation, video screenings, and live performances. I felt like I was participating in some kind of an underground art movement that brought art and fashion to the masses.

I had to come back this year!

Located in a historic industrial warehouse near Bloor and Lansdowne, this annual multi-arts event features 200 national and international fashion designers, visual artists, bands and performers.

It’s a great showcase for innovative and contemporary expression of art and the fashion phenomenon. And, if you’re on the lookout for interesting avant-garde styles, this is the place for you!
