In this special series, up-and-coming model Hayley McKee reports on her Toronto Fashion Week adventures.

Fitting at Joeffer Caoc Day 2 of my amazing Fashion Week experience began with a fitting with the incredible Joeffer Caoc. His show was one of my favourites last year, and I couldn’t wait to reunite with him, and try on his gorgeous collection—so feminine and sexy!! Sadly it was only a quick fitting and I was off once again. Never a dull moment!
 11:30 a.m.
Pink Tartan casting Off to 170 Bedford for an important casting—who doesn’t want to walk in the incredible Pink Tartan show?! I walked it last year and I was star struck as I stood next to some of the biggest international models! As I was just preparing to walk, Amanda Laine—one of my model icons— walked in, and I felt like a little girl again gawking over my favourite celebrity.
2 p.m.
Fashion Week tents After a quick coffee to re-energize me for the rest of my long day, I headed back over to the tents for hair and makeup for the Martin Lim show. After a simple makeup look of just foundation and a pop of colour on the lip, I was off to hair. I sat in front of the big mirror as my hair was sleekly pulled back into a bump on the back of my head, watching myself transform into a new person—girly, feminine and poised. I was ready.
