It may come last (or close to last), but it's certainly not least.

Toronto Fashion Week or as it's officially known, World MasterCard Fashion Week, is fast approaching. Well-heeled ladies and dapper monsieurs will congregate in Toronto's David Pecaut Square from October 22 to October 26 to salivate over Canadian couture.

Since IMG Fashion officially annouced it would be running the event in August, there has been much speculation as to what it will look like.

As it turns out, change is a good thing: the amount of participating designers has doubled since last the last Fashion Week in March. 50 designers will show their collections over the five-day event.

Here are our top picks for which designers to watch out for on this season's runway.

Pink Tartan

Launched in Toronto in 2002 by Kimberly Newport-Mimran, this brand has been a Canadian favorite for a while.

The line's signature retro-with-a-modern-twist style is carried in high end stores around the world including Saks Fifth Avenue, The Bay, Holt Renfrew and Neiman Marcus, and a its first flagship store opened in Toronto in 2010.

Newport-Mimran also designed the stewardess uniforms for Canada's Porter Airlines.

The fall collection included bold prints, splashes of royal blue and tangerine orange, a host of LBDs, and chic, structured coats.

With fresh colours added as a pop to classic cuts and tailoring with every pasing season, we can't wait to see what this year has in store!
