This was my second time covering |FAT| Fashion Art Toronto and although I didn’t need to cover all of the runway shows, I did so once again. Some of my favourites included Inna Clothing Co, B.E. Shields, Wallace Playford, Cinched Tight, Starkers Corsetry, House of Etiquette and Y.D.N.A. There were also, as usual, interesting designs and presentations from many designers of whom I’d never heard before. This year there was a total of 42 runway shows spread over 5 nights with some performances, guest DJs and short films thrown into the mix. Definitely a long week with minimal sleep and major speed review/edits of over 7500 images.

This year there was also a new set up in the pit which made for some interesting first day conversation/discussion with some battling of positions. All good though and we were able to work it out and I ended up with a pretty good spot. Great to see the usual gang once again in the pit although many of the regulars were not present. Definitely had plenty of laughs with Raymond and Michael. Hey guys, how about that volunteer videographer?

Gear for the week was solely my D3s with 70-200 2.8VRll. I didn’t use a monopod but I definitely used some ear plugs (music was loud even between shows). Settings were ISO 1250, 1/640, f2.8 and custom white balance.

Until next year enjoy the images.
