About Art of Fashion:

“The all-night arts festival will present a scattering of art installations across the fair city, transforming it into one giant contemporary art gallery. Yes, it’s free, unique, and pretty wonderful, but if optical structures twisted around tress isn’t your thing, there’s a much more fashionable affair piggybacking on the Nuit Blanche festivities.

On Saturday, September 29, 2012, from 7p.m., Art of Fashion will be introducing Canada’s top emerging designers with a fashion exhibit and design competition. Dubbed “RAW,” the not-for-profit event (now in its 16th year) will celebrate the country’s up and coming talent, while fostering the careers of emerging Canadian apparel and accessory designers.

Making up the design competition are 10 design finalists, each showcasing six designs. The panelists will cast his or her vote to determine AOF’s Most Promising Designer 2012, a category that will be judged according to theme interpretation, exhibit, personal expression, cohesion, technical skills, creativity, and overall design potential. There will also be a winner of the People’s Choice Award 2012, which will be voted on and determined by us, the fashion loving public. It’s like a real-life version of Project Runway, but with cocktails!”
