    RESONATING WITH MILLENNIAL TASTEMAKERS

    By curating interactive event experiences that are infused with excitement and discovery at the AFWT, the program consistently attracts one of the most desirable, affluent segments of Toronto’s highly diverse Millennial demographic.

    Wielding both scale and influence, this group of upwardly-mobile, urban young professionals is just beginning to establish their position as Canada’s largest, most powerful consumer demographic. Each year, AFWT welcomes a largely millennial and repeat audience of more than 2,000 active experience-seekers. During the 4 days program, they come to the venues to be inspired by the fashion collections and programming; and at AFWT, that same passion drives them to discover new experiences in a world of overwhelming choice. Their hyper connected lives means that they rely on more curated sources of information to inform their purchasing decisions: social media, recommendations from their peers, and hands-on brand experiences that demonstrate value. The AFWT programing is able to reach your target demographic in a manner that resonates.
