FAT Arts & Fashion Week returns to Toronto on April 22
Apr '14
|FAT| Arts & Fashion Week, Toronto’s celebrated multi-arts stage for cutting-edge fashion design & art, returns April 22-26, 2014 for a packed schedule of runway shows, photography exhibits, art installations, theatrical performances and fashion films, all taking place under one roof.
Entering its 9th year, |FAT| continues to be the only festival of its kind in Canada, providing a platform for hundreds of emerging and contemporary designers and artists to present new movements in fashion, art and culture in a stimulating showcase before they hit the mainstream.
“Over the years, |FAT| has given birth to celebrity talent. Our fashion designers have graced the pages of high-profile magazines like British Vogue, ID, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour & Fashion; they have dressed the likes of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Kate Moss and worked with top fashion houses like Alexander McQueen.
“|FAT| participants have gained international acclaim in competitions like Project Runway Canada & UK and Mercedes Benz Start Up. Recently one of our most unconventional and extraordinary models has been selected for Americas Next Top Model Cycle 21, “ says Vanja Vasic, |FAT| executive director.
Past |FAT| designers include Matière Noire, Pedram Karimi, Martin Lim, Evan Biddell, Rachel Sin, Emily Woudenberg, Esther Perbandt, Jasper Garvida and Pat McDonagh. During the 5-day event, |FAT| expects to inspire over 5,000 attendees including buyers, media, industry participants and fashion and art enthusiasts.
This year's extraordinary exhibition of fashion and art is anticipating an exciting move to the award-winning, innovative arts and cultural facility in Toronto’s east end, Daniels Spectrum. 
Some of what to expect: 
Taking inspiration from the theme INFashion/UNFashion, participants will present opposing values, visions and expressions in fashion and art based on five sub themes:
Earth/Industry | Grit/Glamour | Masculine/Feminine | Cult/Culture | Minimal/Extreme
Earth/Industry (Earth Day - April 22, 2014) will present eco collections and fashion constructed of re-purposed textiles and recycled embellishments contrasted by industrial designs, fashioned with 3D printing, LED and hybrid elements
Montreal-based fashion designer Brit Wacher will present her anticipated collection that plays with perspective and integrates art, live music and fashion choreography
