It's that time of year again, when Canada's fashion elite descend on Toronto's downtown core for another week of preening and judging. As I walk into the newly-renovated Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) - which looks fabulous, by the way - the blaring music nearly punctures a hole in my eardrum.

Thankfully they sit me right next to the Shaquille-sized speaker to ensure I won't be able to hear anything. But with such fashion bigwigs around me like ELLE Canada Editor-in-Chief Rita Silvan and the FDCC's Robin Kay, I'm sure there are some juicy convos to be heard. Anyway, I remind myself, I'm here to watch, not listen.

The opening runway show for 2009's Toronto Fashion Week is Sunny Fong's line, VAWK. Fong won the second season of 'Project Runway Canada', and has enjoyed some considerable exposure since his easy amble to victory. Fong's stuff was always simple, accessible, and impeccably made. It seems that trend continues for his Spring/Summer 2010 collection.
