Toronto Fashion Week- Behind the Scenes


Redken. Maybelline. Super hot models. Backstage access.

I went to the Toronto Fashion Week last night at the Metro Hall with and had the most amazing, fashion experience. Rather than watching one of the fashion shows (in which I missed, sadly. But got something better out of it!), I went behind-the-scenes where it was bustling with hairstylists and make-up artists and got to experience first hand how fashion show’s really work!


Among the hundreds of artists backstage, Jorge Joao was there himself- Redken’s lead hairstylist and lead stylist for Toronto’s Fashion Week! Jorge was packed with humour and fun, but incredibly welcoming and gracious. On top of that, he worked with incredible precision, quality and speed. The man lives up to his amazing reputation!


We also met Maybelline New YorkCanada’s lead make-up artist, Grace Lee! Although she was incredibly busy, she let us ask her questions and allowed for pictures! We are incredibly grateful for her time and experience as she discussed about make-up styles, products (baby lips anyone?), the Toronto Fashion Week experience and much more!


After hanging out backstage, we went to the front- media center to explore some of the sponsors and their products. We visited sponsor booths ranging from Pandora, to Ritz-Carlton, to TargetCanada!
