Last week the city of Toronto hosted our very first Men’s Fashion Week known globally as TOM*. The event was a monumental success and something we are very proud to be part off. Our role the official sponsor of the Fashion4Hope celebrity runway show gave us the distinct pleasure of dressing some of this city’s most beloved celebrities- legendary designer David Dixon, fashion ambassador Glen Baxter, musicians Jarvis Church and Shawn Desman, TV personalities Devon Soltendieck, Tyrone Edwards, Carlos Bustamante and Steven & Chris…just to name a few.
Taking sartorial cues from screen legends like Frank Sinatra and other old Hollywood heavyweights, our feature runway show previewed a wide collection of formalwear, from vibrant sportcoat combinations to classic shawl collar tuxedos. We are thrilled that our sold-out show had the audience on their feet and raised some serious coin for the Fashion4Hope charity benefiting Kol Hope Foundation for Children and SickKids Hospital(GS alone donated $4,000.)
Here is your exclusive behind-the-scenes look at our show.

Gotstyle donated a His & Hers shopping spree for the silent auction which helped raise over $80,000 dollars for Right To Play, which provides underprivileged children the opportunity the participate in sports and daily activities around the globe.
