James Ensor exhibition in Paris
October 19-February 4
Known for his influence on the 20th Century Expressionists, the exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris on Belgian artist James Ensor gathers 90 of the artist's prints, paintings and drawings, ranging from tiny prints to large-scale paintings.
Toronto Fashion Week
Having announced a location move to the city's King West area in order to make space for more exhibiting brands, Toronto Fashion Week -- known for a more commercial, laid-back approach to fashion -- will host Barbie and department store Holt Renfrew events this season as well as a screening of Vogue documentary, The September Issue.
