To officially kick off Fall Fashion Week 2008, media, designers, and guests gathered at the flagship Holt Renfrew store on Bloor Street West to mingle, be seen and listen to opening speeches made by Caryn Lerner, Robin Kay, Elio Fiorrucci and a few others. Speeches were short and sweet and overall, welcoming. In attendance were a few members of the cast of Degrassi: The Next Generation, MTV Canada Icons, Nada Shepherd of NADA, and much more...

NATHAN PHILLIPS TENTS
After the Holt Renfrew media cocktail party, guests moseyed on down to the tents to see the highly anticipated show, Joe Fresh Style. Designed by Joe Mimran, Joe Fresh has a reputation for simple yet fun clothing at affordable prices.

THE AFTER PARTIES
C Lounge and Ultra Supper Club
Apparently the shows and media cocktail party were not enough for the Faze Team as they frolicked over to the official after party of Fashion Week at C Lounge featuring the sounds of DJ Samantha Ronson.
After a while, the Faze Crew needed a change of scenery and decided to head over to Ultra Supper Club where they watched the Lacoste Fashion Show and danced the night away...
This is how much fun we had at Day 1 of
L'Oréal Fashion Week Fall 2008.
Please note how SMALL the picture is. Nobody wants to see
