Once again, Cashmere fashion show was one of the biggest attractions this fall. A spectacle filled with glamour and creativity, all pieces were made of pink and white Cashmere bathroom paper. Many celebrities modeled the clothing on the runway.
Following the show, Cashmere invited fashion lovers across the country to vote online for their favourite couture from this year’s showcase. Canadian designer Suhaila Niazi was the winner of Cashmere’s Vote Couture for the Cure contest and $10,000 were donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in her name.

On Sept.29, 2012, Scotiabank’s Nuit Blanche was celebrated in style at Hazelton Lanes. Some of Canada’s top emerging designers participated in the 16th annual Art of Fashion fashion exhibit and design competition.
Dubbed “RAW”, this year’s event featured a renowned judging panel of industry leaders, who determined AOF’s Most Promising Designer 2012. Winners were selected based on theme interpretation, exhibit, personal expression, cohesion, technical skills, creativity and overall design potential. The winners were Amy Yuen (People’s Choice Award 2012), Ryan Joelson (Most Promising Designer 2012) and Anouk Moran (Most Promising Designer, Runner-Up 2012).

The room was abuzz with excitement as Bachelor Pad’s Michael Stagliano and Ed Swiderski arrived.
As part of this year’s TIFF festivities, TDOT TV held an interview lounge and gifting suite at the Bata Shoe Museum on Bloor Street West in Toronto. A number of celebrities, including Looper’s Noah Segan, Emily Hampshire from My Awkward Sexual Adventure, Mr. Pip’s Eka Darville, The Master’s Katie Boland, Meghan Heffern, the cast of Bomb Girls, and a few Degrassi personalities came by during the second day of the event that was held over the weekend of Sept.7.
The reality show contestants, originally known from The Bachelorette were attracting the most attention. It may have had something to do with the primarily female-filled room.
As the celebrities entreated the lounge, they were interviewed by TDOT TV and then invited to try out numerous products, such as hair feathers by Doll Bar Inc., loungewear by Lazypants, manicures by Cheeky Monkey as well as a complimentary work-out shirt from the anticipated Equinox Fitness Club opening soon in Toronto.
Fuelled by complimentary Prairie Organic Vodka, Heineken Beer, and scrumptious cupcakes and macaroons by We Bake in Heels, guests mingled and enjoyed their break from the intensive days of the festival.
