DESIGNER APPLICATIONS

Welcome to TOM* – Toronto Men’s Fashion Week.
Designers who wish to participate in the Fall/Winter 2017 Runway Presentations will need to fill the application form, pay the mandatory application fee and the 50% deposit of the Runway Fees.

TOM* F/W17 runway presentations are suitable for designers wishing to show their menswear ready-to-wear collection on the ‘runway’ to an audience of 600+ with one specified time slot and no repeat shows/sittings.

Once an applicant has completed the requirements, it will be reviewed and the candidate will benotified by email whether the application has been accepted. Designers successful to enter the next phase will be reviewed by the TOM* – Toronto Men’s Fashion Week panel. Applicants maybe asked to submit additional supporting information, which will be considered alongside the application to reach a final decision. The TOM* panel acts in an advisory capacity only.

There may be certain cases where TOM* feels a particular applicant may or may not be suitable for Toronto Men’s Fashion Week, and TOM* reserves final say. TOM* organizers also reserve the right to approve runway styling, pieces or an entire collection based on TOM*s runway standards such as quality, fit, presentation, and marketability.
