Shows you’re most looking forward to: "Mackage and Beaufille deliver solid collections and invigorating runway presentations; and Christopher Bates, for classic menswear."
Fashion Week survival tip: "Always have a fully charged phone (or know where the nearest electrical outlet is). This is crucial yet so easy to overlook."
Most important pre-FW ritual: "Only put your heels on at the last minute when heading to the tents. Seriously. Walking around in them all day beforehand is unnecessary and just plain asking for trouble later on."
What you’ll be wearing to the shows: "My go-to Enzo Angiolini black pumps. I broke them in during TIFF so I think I’ll be good to go, running from shows to the backstage area afterward chasing interviews. Plus any mix of dark neutrals, leather and animal print is always a classic FW choice. "
Favourite place to grab a bite near the tents: "Luma at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. I love the view overlooking King Street at night and their Parmesan truffle fries, well, OMG."
