[FAT] is Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week, happening once a year in Toronto, Canada. I heard about the event a few years ago and I have been dying to go since then. But it seemed every year, something came up and I could never make it. This Friday, April 24, I finally made it to my first [FAT] event and it was an amazing experience! [for more insight into what FAT is all about, see the Summer Festival article in the April09 issue]
I got out of work at 2pm on Friday, filled up my car with gas, stopped at the bank for some Loonies and Toonies, and hit the road. My two hour trip to Toronto was better than I had feared, no delay at the border and I didn’t get pulled over for a car search, something that always seems to happen to me, but there was some construction on the QEW and of coarse I ended up arriving in Toronto during rush hour. After the tiring drive, I met up with a friend in Toronto, the lovely Spitfire, and we rushed off to the final night of Alternative Fashion Week.
