The One of a Kind Show Toronto is one of my favourite events of the year. Real below for some of my favourite local Toronto artisans that are at the One of a Kind Show.
The most lovely booth by Love at First Blush – such pretty jewellery!
If you haven’t been before, The One of a Kind Show Toronto is a bi-annual show at the Enercare Centre (Exhibition Place) that showcases local Canadian makers. These artisans are selling everything from delicious food, to beautiful clothing, and stunning artwork (to name just a few things!). Oh, and it’s also my favourite show of the year!
Hats by Tuck Shop Co. – these are the perfect hats for any proud Toronto folk
Dan and I go to the show every year and always make sure to walk down every aisle and have a look at each vendor (even though the venue is huge and our feet get a little sore!). We have our favourite vendors – shout out to Monique at Moonrox 🙂 – and are always excited to discover new makers and buy a little something special that was handmade with care.
At this show you will find super talented artisans who work so hard to produce and sell quality, ethical products. That’s something that can be hard to find at our usual box stores and malls these days! As always, I was really excited to attend, but this year I also had the privilege of working with the One of a Kind Show to style a mannequin for the Fashion District.
For my mannequin, I chose a few pieces of clothing that stood out to me from makers that I think are producing some really cute, unique, and versatile items. I chose a scarf and top combo by Melissa Nepton, a black vest by Eve Gravel, and an A-line skirt from Birds of North America. These three companies caught my attention for a few different reasons…
Melissa Nepton’s pieces feature sophisticated cuts, made with beautiful materials, and delicate textures. Her pieces are all about cut and material and they are pieces that would compliment any outfit!
Eve Gravel’s work is all about bold silhouettes and a lot of beautiful patterns in black and white. Her collection this season features a lot of vests, like the one I dressed my mannequin in, which just so happen to be one of my favourite fall / winter pieces!
Birds of North America is a little more playful with a lot of fun patterns and girly cuts. Their booth at the show is full of bold colours. This is the perfect spot to go for cute party dresses and skirts for the holidays!
Undeniably, the accessories are always what get me most excited at the show! There is fabulous jewellery, handbags, hats and more. Below are a few of my favourite pieces to keep your eye out for this year.
