Toronto’s Bayview Village shopping centre is hosting a pop-up this weekend in partnership with Toronto Fashion Incubator. The pop-up opens on Friday June 10th and runs until Sunday the 12th inclusive.
Included will be a range of curated upscale fashion, jewellery and “glam” accessories that will be all available for purchase, from emerging talents and entrepreneurs.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Toronto Fashion Incubator for this one-of-a-kind bespoke pop-up, where customers can shop luxe and local talent,” said Rachael Tang, Marketing Director, Bayview Village Shopping Centre. “Bayview Village is known for celebrating Canadian design, and through this partnership with Toronto Fashion Incubator, we are offering a turnkey solution for designers to get the exposure they need to amplify their businesses.”
Designers featured at the pop-up range from seasoned veterans to first-time merchants looking to gain exposure and be immersed in the fashion scene. The pop-up provides an opportunity for the community to shop local brands while giving designers an additional platform to showcase their talent.
“We believe that Bayview Village is the right location for our first-ever pop-up as the shopping centre is a well-known destination for Canadian fashion and luxury products,” said Susan Langdon, Executive Director of the Toronto Fashion Incubator. “Alumni brands such as Smythe, Greta Constantine and Jenny Bird have been extremely popular among the clientele at Bayview Village; thus, we have carefully curated a collection of designers whom we feel will thrive in this upscale environment.”
Toronto Fashion Incubator is marking 35 years of supporting up-and-coming Canadian designers with the launch and growth of their fashion businesses through strategic building programs, mentorship and exclusive promotional and marketing opportunities.
Opening hours for the pop-up are 10:00am-8pm Friday June 10, 10:00am-6pm Saturday June 11 and Noon-5pm on Sunday June 12.
The first 100 customers to visit the pop-up each day will have a chance to win a $1,000 Bayview Village gift card, limited to one entry per person, terms and conditions apply.
