The bi-annual event was established twenty years ago, and has gone through re-brandings and venue shuffles. For the last few seasons, shows had taken place across the city, including the Royal Ontario Museum, the Gardiner Museum and Yorkville Village. Designers featured ranged from homegrown talents like Lesley Hampton, Sid Neigum and Narces, to international houses like Trigère.
No date was given for the event’s return.
