Refreshing Our Strategy

Art of Fashion is revitalizing its approach to help emerging designers.  We will focus our energies on creating specific experiences and competitions that will be better suited to help designers gain a foot hold in the fashion industry.  Crafting several individual events will allow Art of Fashion to tailor events to fit the needs of their competing designers and ensure that they are able to take full advantage of any and all resources made available to them through our organization and its sponsors.  This refresh of our organization will inject more excitement into Toronto’s fashion scene as we continue to bring together passionate and like-minded volunteers, partners, suppliers, consumers and most importantly, designers.  Moving forward, our strategy will continue to be oriented around cultivating new relationships with sponsors, ambassadors and media and strategic partners as well as nurturing our current relationships.
