THE INDEX

One of a Kind Show Toronto

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.

It’s that time of year again…The One of A Kind Show in Toronto!  

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!

For as long as I can remember, buying local and supporting Canadian makers has been important to my family. I grew up in the Niagara region where buying things like local fruit, flowers and wine was just something that we did. I’ve tried my best to carry that into other parts of my life. I’m sure many of you know from reading my previous posts, but I really try my best to buy quality clothing that is often made in Canada. This is just the type of thing that the One of a Kind Show Toronto is all about, which is amazing!

The One of a Kind Show Toronto – An Annual Tradition

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.

Welcome to the Fashion District at One of a Kind Show Toronto…

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

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

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

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!
