During World MasterCard Fashion Week Instagram is one of the best online sources for getting the latest style news and sneak peeks at Canadian designer collections. From funny to fashionable, here are ten of the best snaps from fashion week in Toronto.

Alexander Kenton @alexanderkenton
If you’re ever in need of killer martial arts back-up to defend yourself against a horde of fashion zombies then call on the kick-ass trio of Alexander Kenton, Callianne and Samantha Beckerman (@beckermanblog). Their kung fu fighting skills are deadly and their fashion senses are unparalleled.
Anita Clarke @geekigirl
Top blogger Anita Clarke captures what’s probably one of the most eyebrow raising moments of Fashion Week; the use of dead fish to accessorized models during Bustle’s fall/winter 2014 runway show. What were the designers thinking?
Grace Lee @graceleebeauty
Models don’t emerge on the catwalk looking fabulous with their hair done up and lips perfectly painted. Look to Grace Lee, Maybelline New York Canada’s lead make-up artist, who is in charge of keying beauty looks for more than 30 fashion shows this season. Case in point: this picture and caption Lee posted showing the power of a highly skilled beauty team.
Irene Kim @irene_kf
La Closette Owner Irene Kim shows that animal print never goes out of style and has the right idea trekking to the tents suited up in this striking and most, importantly, warm coat as the temperature plummeted to 0°C in the middle of March on day one of Fashion Week.
Jenna Bitove Naumovich @jennanaumovich
Socialite and Stylist Jenna Bitove captured one of the standout looks from Mackage’s highly successful fall/winter 2014 runway show on day three; a quilted navy varsity jacket paired with black leather quilted crop top and high waisted pencil skirt. Divine!
Jen Reynolds, @jnreynolds
Jen Reynolds, Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Living, captured this image of one of the most drool worthy looks from Pink Tartan’s fall/winter 2014 collection, an over-size quilted blanket jacket. If only this piece was available this winter.
Lisa Tant @lisatant
It helps to have a good seat at Fashion Week to see designers’ latest collections close up. Lisa Tant, Vice President and Fashion Editor at Holt Renfrew, has one of the best seats in the tent and captured this sumptuous plaid coat from the Mackage show. Even better, she was sitting beside the department store’s coat buyer; our guess is that she’ll be adding this number to her closet very soon.
Maybelline Canada @maybellinecan
If you think you have a lot of make-up in your cosmetics case then feast your eyes on one of Maybelline New York Canada’s many beauty stations backstage at World MasterCard Fashion Week. Every woman’s cosmetics case should look like this!
Nelia Belkova @styleblogca
When you gather the city’s top fashion bloggers together at Fashion Week funny antics ensue in the front row. After being cooped up in a dimly lit tent for hours, staring at swaths of fabric and expressionless models on an empty stomach Sharon Ng-Hayes, Nelia Belkova, Kimberly Lyn (yours truly) and Gracie Carroll let off some steam at the end of day three complete with a red leafy substance (aka: maple leaves).
Sidewalk Hustle @sidwalkhustle
Hawley Dunbar, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Sidewalk Hustle, snapped this pic of Joe Fresh founder Joe Mimran hard at work prior to the brand’s anticipated fall/winter 2014 collection titled “Fresh Expedition.”
