Taking place September 4 to 6, in Yorkville Village, over a dozen designers will hit the Toronto Fashion Week stage to showcase their Spring/Summer 2019 collections. 
This season's roster includes returning designers and Toronto favourites to the main stage like menswear designer Christopher Bates, streetwear designer Hayley Elsaesser, womenswear line Narces, as well as designer Jordan McKay, from the label Hendrixroe. 
New to the calendar is womenswear label Zoff, designed by Michael Zoffranieri from Mississauga, Ontario. He received the Suzanne Rogers Award for Most Promising New Label of 2017 at the Toronto Fashion Incubator’s New Labels competition, and was also nominated for the Swarovski Emerging Talent Award (Fashion Design), at the 2018 Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards (CAFAs).
Meanwhile, as part of the the Re\Set designer showcase, other familiar faces like ready-to-wear designer Hilary MacMillan and Tara Rivas will share their Spring/Summer 2019 designs, along with other favourites like Christopher Paunil, Alex S. Yu and more. 
Toronto Fashion Week joined forces with Toronto-based production agency The Collections, the founders of Re/Set, last season for the first time, bringing the two fashion showcases together. 
Toronto Fashion Week was hosted by IMG Canada before being purchased by Peter Freed, president of Freed Developments, in December, 2016, following its cancelation. 
The official catwalk calendar with dates and times is still yet to be announced.
