Toronto is climbing the ranks as one of the fashion capitals of the world. However, living lavishly in designer brands is not always an easy pursuit (fake it till you make it?). Thankfully, these stores in Toronto make your designer dreams a reality by making high-end brands accessible through consignment. Follow this guide for the top ten in the city.
The pick of the most posh, Fashionably Yours is located in the heart of Queen West – fittingly, as it was dubbed the second coolest neighborhood in the world by Vogue. FY carries both men’s and women’s apparel and accessories, as well as an under $200 section for those less willing to splurge. If you are looking for something exclusive, FY recently collaborated with NYC fine artist Sue Tsai to create a limited edition racerback and print. What sets Fashionably Yours apart from its peers, however, is the fact that it accepts online orders through Paypal, with free shipping in Canada and the U.S. In addition, FY was one of the only retailers with access to Kanye’s recent, ‘Feel Like Pablo,’ merch. Follow them on Instagram for sneak peaks of incoming pieces, as the best sell quickly at this popular spot.
Originating as a pop-up shop in 2009, LAB quickly grew a name for itself on the Toronto fashion scene. Though it does not currently host a storefront in the city (its headquarter studios are appointment only and located in Hamilton), LAB operates online – making it even easier to spend your cash on names like Theory, Helmut Lang, Balenciaga, and Lanvin. With a ‘Canadian Designers’ feature list on its site and an ‘Under $150’ section, LAB caters to all tiers of luxury shoppers.
