It’s All Style To Me is a massive fan of Italian Fashion and it’s nice to see the Italian Trade Commission, with the support of Fashion Television, Alessi, Bristot, Brunello Importers, and Yorkville News, pull together a fashion event showcasing the best this city has to offer in fine Italian apparel. “We are thrilled to host Italian Fashion 2011 again this year,” stated Mr. Antonio Lucarelli, Trade Commissioner of the Italian Trade Commission. “Italy has always been synonymous with innovation, artistry, and styling in fashion design and we are happy to share this with Toronto.”
The fashion show featured a beautiful fusion of ballet, modern dance, and fashion in a performance designed by former National Ballet of Canada dancer and choreographer, Roberto Campanella. Created exclusively for the event, Campanella designed ModaDanza to showcase the best dancers and choreographers while infusing the essence of various Italian fashion brands.
