A citizen's advocacy group has recently called Sophie Grégoire Trudeau out for accepting gifts and loans of clothing from Canadian fashion labels, deeming her "for sale" for daring to wear support for our country's industry on her sleeve. I can see how gifts and loans can make for some bad optics, even if the role of prime minister's wife has little real political oomph behind it. However, in a world where few powerful individuals direct their influence toward social good like Grégoire Trudeau does, Democracy Watch's threadbare argument seems to be more about populist-pleasing celebrity shaming than hypothetical conflicts of interests.

Perhaps an alternative sponsor opportunity may come to fruition. Unfortunately, there is another type of funding that is not available.

Traditionally a fashion show is supposed to be for buyers to place orders and for editors to narrow down the countless number of runway looks into X key trends for the season. Neither of those things occur at Toronto Fashion Week anymore. In order to maximize the potential of this event, changes need to be made.
