News broke today that the World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto has been sold to a global event management firm, and that longtime executive director, Robin Kay, will be stepping down from her position.
“Fashion week is much bigger than me as an individual person,” Kay said in an exclusive meeting with Torstar News Service and Peter Levy, a representative for new owner IMG Canada.
IMG is the same firm that handles New York fashion week as well those in Miami, Tokyo, Moscow and Mumbai.
The event will take place in Toronto October 22 to 26, at David Pecaut Square. Future events will be run by teams at IMG Canada and IMG Fashion.
