There are some telltale signs that World MasterCard Fashion Week is gracing us with its presence once again in Toronto. Let me recount a few:
- Your social media channels start to get bombarded with images of models, runways and daily outfit selfies (sorry friends!)
- Leathers and (faux?) furs start making their appearance en masse in the King West area
- Fashionable zombies are amongst us all and bug-eyed from the constant adrenaline of the shows, lack of sleep and partying all night (oh you brave, brave souls)

In all seriousness, it’s an exciting time to celebrate industry veterans and newcomers in Canadian fashion. Having kicked off its first day on Monday, October 21st, World MasterCard Fashion Week has once again pitched its grandiose tent on King Street West at David Pecaut Square. The Spring/Summer 2014 season will showcase more than 35 shows and events by designers including Joe Fresh, Pink Tartan, Mackage, Soia & Kyo, Target and so many more.

Blogging from the front lines, I’m thrilled to be attending the shows along with KJ Chen, our latest addition to the urbanebloc family! Recently returning from an adventure in Seoul, Korea, she is bringing back a fresh perspective on all things trending in fashion and beauty. We’ll be scoping out all latest fashion trends and will be reporting all the highlights you need to know!
Be sure to follow along all week by using the #urbanebloc hashtag on Twitter and Instagram and of course, you can catch up on our fashionable adventures right here on the blog. Tweet us @christinetlu and @kageee and let us know what you think! Say hi if you see us around :)
