Queen West and Fashion District (Self Guided), Toronto

Breathe new life into your wardrobe with a spot of fashion shopping in Toronto. Experiment with bold new looks at Queen Street West. This is known as the home of the weird and the wonderful and is where you can purchase clothes and accessories that are a little different from the average clothing lines that you will typically see in high street fashion stores. Some of the creations are by up and coming designers looking to make a name for themselves. Also on this street are antique stores, art galleries and shops selling quirky gifts.

The trendsetting hub of Toronto is its Fashion District, which is also known as the garment district. Come here for the very latest in high-end fashions with some stores selling lines straight from the manufacturers. You can easily spend a couple of days wandering in and out of its trendy stores and boutiques, which include women's and men's apparel and bridal stores, some located in restored and refurbished warehouses.

When you have in mind a certain look, color, style and fabric, you can also order custom-made items in some of the Fashion District's chic boutiques. This is the best place to come in Toronto for a look that expresses your unique personality.
