This was part of Dufferin Mall’s STYLE CAPTURED campaign, which invited Torontonians to get an inside look at affordable fashion by watching a Fashion Show Flash Mob, featuring runway styles from retailers like H&M, Winners, Marshalls, Dynamite and Forever 21! Models strutted their stuff along King Street and all around David Pecaut Square on October 23 & 24. What a brilliant idea! My favourite part about this entire event was not only seeing the amazing, affordably priced fashion from Dufferin Mall, but how surprised and in awe everyone in David Pecaut Square was! I felt lucky to have witnessed such a one-of-a-kind event. I have never experienced a Fashion Show Flash Mob. There is nothing more show- stopping than a bunch of 5’10 models stomping down the streets of Toronto in this season’s hottest Fall/Winter 2014 trends. Literally all the photographers stopped what they were doing, ran over and started snapping shots! For one brief moment I forgot I was actually outside Fashion Week and really inside watching a runway show from a designer!

Two of my favourite looks from the Fashion Show Flash Mob were both in full layering effect, these were the Burgundy Outfit and the School Girl look which reminds me of an updated ‘Cher Horowitz’ trend! Layered with sweaters, shirts and a draped jacket over the shoulders, nothing is more high fashion and warm than this outfit! The Burgundy Outfit was all about layering but in a different way. I loved the wrap scarf with the peter pan collared shirt layered with the floral print dress! How chic! Looking for a different look with the scarp, opt for belting the scarf!

To those who were ‘Toronto’s Most Stylish’ be sure to check out Dufferin Mall on November 10 to find your photo up on the mural as one of Toronto’s trendsetters, and be sure to shop the affordable fashion that Dufferin Mall offers!
Now let’s talk Dufferin Mall. DM is what I like to call a hidden gem in the city. Forget the Eaton Centre, Square One, Yorkdale or even Sherway. If you’re looking for great retailers in a mall that isn’t overcrowded then Dufferin Mall is your mall. Located in the hub of Toronto (900 Dufferin Street, south of Bloor), it features over 140 retailers like Winners, H&M, Aldo, Marshalls, and coming soon Forever 21. It not only has FREE parking (no other mall in Downtown Toronto offers that!) but also FREE Wifi! My favourite thing about Dufferin Mall retailers is that because not many people have recognized this mall as a ‘go to’ spot for fashion, the items aren’t picked over, the stores are tidy and organized and everyone is super friendly! So the next time you’re thinking of a place to shop all your fashion needs, make sure you check out Dufferin Mall ~Love C XX
