Call us biased but when you have Lennox Lewis lead a pack of 23 awesome celebrities down your runway during Toronto Men’s Fashion Week there’s no contest that your show just shut it down. That was the scene last week when we teamed up with TOM* to sponsor and style their annual celebrity Men’s Fashion4Hope charity runway show.

Hosted at College park the event was a sold out success- and quite possibly one of the most entertaining shows of the week. Not shocking when you consider that you have a collective of athletes, musicians, actors, youtube superstars and a few politicians strutting their stuff. Perhaps the only thing more interesting than the characters in the show was the fact that each celebrity was outfitted in our latest Fall/Winter styles. That may not seem to impressive at first until of course you take note of the fact that we dressed everyone off-the-rack, ranging From 6’4 Lennox Lewis down to 5’5 Senator Tobias Enverga- there were no special orders or made-to-measure, absolutely everything featured on the runway was off-the-rack! Scroll down to see all the outfits.

Special thanks to our resident stylists Shaeleigh Afton & Sharad Mohan for styling our celebrities.

CONTEST
Win-Gotstyle-Contest-Girl-The-Great-Hall

One of our favourite and long time Gotstyle clients Guy Rubino has a new music project that has us rocking in the store daily.  You may know Guy Rubino as owner and executive chef at his wildly successful Toronto restaurants, Zoom, Rain, Luce and Strada 241 and from his hit television series Made To Order.

Rubino has now hung up his chef whites in favour of his guitar, tour bus and life as a budding rock star.  His first project is Girl, an indie rock band with Jean Sebastien Roy formerly of the Stills.  They draw influences from past and present indie bands such as The Cure and Phoenix. Girl recently has returned from NYC to record their first EP soon to be released on iTunes.

Staff Picks

Festivals are about freedom. The liberty to move to the beat, listen to the music you love and use clothes as a form of personal expression. The original goers were peace-loving bohemians; today looks are more about high fashion- fused with attitude and a touch of comfort. Gotstyle’s intrepid stylists are lending their inspiration for the melodious madness (Coachella, SXSW, Ultra and Counterpoint sneaking up fast). Picture yourself back stage in the most rebel cool ensemble. Let the debauchery begin.
