Toronto Is Fashion was invited to check out the shows and fashion offerings at the 2010 Clothing Show this weekend at The Better Living Center. Marking it’s 30th year as Canada’s largest vintage and new, independent designer show, the venue was packed with booths selling accessories, streetwear, sample sales, and a huge selection of unique, vintage items you wouldn’t find at any of your local Value Villages or Goodwills.
With art displays, food, runway shows and of course some shopping, The Clothing Show has a little something for everyone. Check out some pics of the event, and check out the runway show pictures HERE.

The girls from henkaa get top marks for their innovative dress. So many different ways to wear this thing!
Jill Harrop for Heart Felt gets our attention with their social and ecological products. All product is fairly traded and hand finished right here in Toronto, Canada.
Based in Quebec, Voyou designer Lise-Marie Cayer brings attitude and wear-ability to streetwear.

Our friends and I could not stop gushing over these designs by local artist Corrine Anestopoulos from Biko.
With quality and design you would expect from boutique shops along trendy Queen Street West, they were a fraction of what you would pay at most store front retailers.
