Designer Philip Sparks, whose Thursday show at the Burroughes Building near Queen and Bathurst Sts. evoked the Russian musical fairy tale Peter and the Wolf, was careful to attribute his pre-Fashion Week staging to esthetics and scheduling, not politics.
“We wanted that hardwood floor, that raw industrial space instead of the slick look of the runway at the tents,” he said, noting buyers enjoy the laid-back vibe.
“A lot of our boutique buyers are more inclined to come to a smaller, off-site show than to the tents, which can be overwhelming.”
