Why Toronto?

With a large South-Asian diaspora, Toronto offers a never before opportunity for Indian designers - emerging, new and established, to make their mark in a relatively unexplored market and network for long term business collaboration. The opportunities with JASHN will act as a catalyst for media engagement and coverage, retail activity and global connectivity – broadening designers’ reach into international markets through digital media integration.

South Asian Population

A dynamic hub for culture, creativity and innovation; Toronto is a potential new market for Indian designers. An event like JASHN provides an opportunity for Indian exporters to showcase alongside some of the best local and international designers. It is an ideal platform for designers to reach new buyers, increase sales and strengthen existing client relationships.

Bollywood

Be it movie shoots, promotions or award shows, Toronto has always been a favorite with Bollywood celebrities. Locals are highly influenced by Indian celebrities and fashion. IIFA Awards 2011 were also held in Toronto.

Indian Weddings in Canada

Canada is a hub for big multicultural weddings. HNW NRIs spend considerably on weddings, making Canada a flourishing market for leading and new age Indian designers. An average Indian wedding can cost around $100,000.

Cultural Diversity

Toronto, with a population of 2.79 million people is heralded as one of the most multicultural cities in the world. A significant percentage of Canada’s population is of Indian heritage, especially in Vancouver and Toronto.

Digital Media

The event is a catalyst for media engagement and coverage, that will help broaden designer’s reach into international markets through the integration of digital media.

Beautiful Destination

The iconic C N tower and breathtaking Niagara Falls make it a beautiful destination.
