It’s September and the city is electrified with energy from back to school excitement and the buzz of the Toronto International Film Festival. I personally love TIFF, and this is my 4 year taking part in the annual event and I’m so glad that here at Yorkdale Shopping Centre we’ll be taking part in some star-studded festivities!
If you manage to snag tickets for films or score some exclusive red carpet or after-party invites you’re probably experiencing what I feel. Panic. Panic because you’re wardrobe ideas may not work? Are they appropriate for a particular situation? Am I undressed? The struggle is real! Don’t stress, I have some options for 3 different occasions. Movie Premiere, The Red carpet & The After Party.
Movie Premiere – Cool casual dressing to watch the movie you have tickets for. Stars generally show up to this so I mean, you want to look presentable if you manage a selfie with them!

The Red Carpet – We don’t have the luxury to have designers lending us garments or full outfits for red carpet events but that doesn’t mean we can’t play the part. Grey flannel looks sharp against red carpets and falls beautifully on the body.

The After Party – Directors, producers and of course the stars of a film will always have a celebratory party with some uber exclusive guest list; so if you’re going to be rubbing shoulders with some heavy weights you have to look the part!
