Attention all fashionistas! Are you looking to hone your fashion skills and get your name out there to industry professionals? Then look no further than the Fashion Weekly Fashion Camp , a one-day intense workshop jam packed with celebrity speakers, entrepreneurs, workshops and prizes.
The main focus behind the event is to showcase Toronto’s innovative fashion industry and to provide new and upcoming talents (LIKE YOU!) with career path options, awareness of the realities of the industry, and a chance to participate in fun workshops. Guests will also be treated to a variety of speakers from the fashion industry, including Jason Meyers from season 2 of Project Runway Canada ; Audrey Hyams Romoff of OverCat Communications , who was named top public relations executive in Canada for 2008; Farhan Z , owner and director of Moro Model and Talent Management ; and our very own El Presidente Jen McNeely , among others.
And we of course have to mention the fabulous prizes up for grabs, with sponsors including Jeanne Lottie , Much On Demand and CBC’s The Hour . Winners of the lecture challenges will receive an internship with Fashion Weekly, and there is also a meet and greet with Mary Kitchen of Fashion Television up for grabs. All guests will be provided with goody bags and lunch.
