Fashion Week Diary

After posting Elizabeth Cabral's Fashion Week Diary, Fashion Cappuccino asked to see photo-blogger Tommy Ton's diary, and I have finally gotten around to posting it!  The text is once again taken from the September 2010 issue of Flare.

Tommy Ton spends little time in his hometown of Toronto.  Instead, fashion weeks from Sydney to Paris keep this plane-hopper busy capturing the festivities for his popular Jak&Jil blog, style.com, and Flare.  Along the way, this accessory magpie has earned a front-row seat at top shows and elevated the art of photoblogging.
NYC February 13: Backstage at Alexander Wang, Natalia Vodianova shares a moment in the spotlight with her kids. 
NYC February 13: A vampy, very Tom Ford-inspired finale from friend and emerging designer Joseph Altuzarra.
NYC February 17: Reed Krakoff's debut is the surprise hit of Fashion Week.  Utilitarian minimalism done right.  I hear nothing but praise from the press.
NYC: Leopard is making a huge statement on the feet of many fashion insiders.  This over-the-top statement is done perfectly.
NYC: It's all about downsizing your handbag.  The key silhouette is the Céline box purse, seen slung over the shoulder of every fashion editor.
NYC: I am lucky enough to be at the exclusive debut of the Olsen twins' runway show for The Row.  Minimalism at its best!
Paris March 5: Natasha Poly at Isabel Marant in one of the most coveted essentials of the season: the shearling jacket.
Paris March 8: The day of the Kenzo show is the highlight of my fashion month.  All the models come out wearing hats from the runway and the light is perfect for model portraits.
Paris March 10: Marc Jacobs celebrates the female form at Louis Vuitton.  It's all about the Bs: busts, bustiers, bows and bombshells!
Paris: My favourite show subject of the season is 16-year-old Swedish model Frida Gustavsson.
Milan: In between shows I am invited to Anna Dello Russo's apartment.  It's beyond anything I've ever seen before.
