For the past few years, I have been desperate to go to World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto, but life always seemed to get in the way. Early this year though, I started planning, and I planned hard because NOTHING was stopping me this time.
I knew that getting tickets to the shows, especially the very popular ones like Pink Tartan and Mackage, was going to be hard, so I started stalking the WMCFW website like it was my full-time job. Finally, the ticket site went live, I pulled my credit card out of its holster, and by some miracle of God, I got tickets to every show I wanted to see! I honestly shed tears of joy onto my keyboard.
I bought my train ticket to Toronto, carefully chose my outfits, and I was set. I was doing it!! I was finally going to see real live runway shows at one of the biggest fashion weeks in the world! I felt like a kid again – I couldn’t sleep the night before leaving for Toronto, and I was a bag of nerves as I boarded the train. What can I say? I live for this stuff.
Words cannot express how I felt as I walked up to David Pecaut Square where the shows were held…the rush when streetstyle photographers took my picture, the feeling when I bumped into supermodel Yasmin Warsame, or how starstruck I felt when I saw my favourite bloggers such as Justine Iaboni of Jetset Justine, Catriona Smart of Coco & Cowe and Alexander Kenton of Kenton Magazine. #starstruck
