Photography by Aleyah Solomon; assisted by Diego Garcia
For the fourth year in a row, FAJO returns as the Media Partner of |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week!
|FAT| is Canada’s largest art-infused fashion festival. Held every April, it features 200 fashion designers and artists, and welcomes over 5,000 guests, including buyers, curators, the media, and fashion and art aficionados.
This year’s edition marks the event’s 10-year anniversary, and is themed as #MadeInCanada.
Leading up to the shows, we we did an exclusive photoshoot with the participants, including designers, models, make-up and hair team, and head organizers. And those who couldn’t make it to the photoshoot, sent us their photos!
Below are the results of this project.
