Change of ownership
In December, 2016, Peter Freed, announced the purchase of Toronto Fashion Week from IMG Canada Limited. Freed, President of Freed Developments, spearheads the ownership group, composed of several of the country's top executives in real estate, media and finance. This group acquired the storied semi-annual event with the goal of creating a global forum for fashion, retail, arts, entertainment and culture.
Before that, the Toronto Fashion Week brand was owned by IMG World, which is the same organization responsible for operating New York City's fashion week. On August 8, 2012, it was reported that Robin Kay and the Fashion Design Council of Canada sold the Toronto Fashion Week brand to IMG.
Suzanne Cohon, is Toronto Fashion Week's Fashion, Arts and Cultural Ambassador, and Carolyn Quinn is Executive Director.
