World MasterCard Fashion Week is about fashion, fun and business. The runways hold the carefully guarded secrets to next season’s fashion looks. What will be the ‘fashion must haves’, can we spot the big trends? WMCFW is expanding, becoming a bigger national and international spotlight for Canadian Fashion and boosting the image of the fashion industry and the talent behind it. Fueling the excitement are collaborations with industry, fashion schools, and business.
