Dressing the Stars at TIFF 2017

Dressing the Stars at TIFF 2017

Posted by charteroffashion | July 21, 2017 | Events

Every Fall the popular and prestigious international film festival, TIFF, takes place in the heart of downtown Toronto, showcasing a carefully selected series of motion pictures. The week-long event is known for bringing film lovers together, along with talented filmmakers and artists alike. Not only is it a chance for directors to present their creativity and for fans to join their favourite celebrities in the premiere of their new films, but it also offers a spectacular opportunity for anyone involved to “play dress up, and have fun”. On this note, the special occasion grants favoured designers a chance to flaunt their latest work and highlight some of the season’s current fashion trends!

Previous Fashion Trends at TIFF

During the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, we saw award winning actresses such as Callie Hernandez, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, and Kate Hudson walking the red carpet in style. There to premiere the film “Deep Horizon”, Miss Hudson certainly made an appearance in her corset-inspired Alexander Mcqueen gown. The sheer lace piece was given some sparkle with its flashy moon and star-shaped embellishments. After noticing that lace and sparkles were also seen on the beautiful Anne Hathaway, it seemed that floral lace and emphasized intricate patterns were the more prominent fashion trends of last year’s red carpet. There is no doubt that this Fall’s festival styles will be just as glamorous.

How to Showcase Your Designs at TIFF 2017

For an emerging local fashion brand, it is less likely that your designs will appear on the red carpet. However, Stylist Box makes the impossible, possible. The exclusive showroom is located in the trendy DuWest neighborhood of Toronto, with clientele ranging from actresses such as Kim Cattrall to musicians like Nelly Furtado. Stylist Box connects both emerging and well-established fashion brands to top celebrity wardrobe stylists and overall high-profile personalities. The company has done a stellar job in revealing Canada’s hottest fashion and accessory brands at various red carpet events, live performances, magazine editorials and much more.


This week, Stylist Box is hosting an event in conjunction with the Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI) that educates emerging fashion brands on how to increase exposure and get their creative pieces onto celebrity figures! You’ll get to hear from one of their special guest speakers, celebrity stylist Renna Reddie, who has styled numerous events including TIFF and the Canadian Screen Awards. In attending, you will also be entered to win a spot in The Stylist Suite at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival!
