Toronto Men's Fashion Week began yesterday and the show's organizers are already facing backlash. This is because designer, Mic. Carter's collection was dropped from the show just three days before the event. Mic. Carter alleges his collection, named L'Uomo Strano, was deemed "too feminine" and "not masculine enough" whilst the show's organizers claim the garments were "frayed" and didn't meet quality standards. The designer shared the following status update on Facebook on Monday night.
“They thought it was all extremely feminine and that it would be really embarrassing. They said they were concerned about the headlines saying that womenswear is being shown at men’s fashion week,” said Carter, 29.
However, TOMFW's executive director Jeff Rustia says the allegations are false. “It’s not true at all,” said Rustia. “The workmanship needs to be improved. He needs to work harder on his collection.”
