A new Toronto fashion week is in the works.

Less than two months after Toronto Fashion Week announced it was shutting down, word comes that a new showcase will debut next year.

Organizers for Toronto Men's Fashion Week announced Saturday that it would launch Toronto Women's Fashion Week in February 2017, but revealed no other details.

Advisory council member Roger Gingerich says the plan has been "in the works ever since it was announced that IMG was pulling out of Toronto."

Gingerich says the women's showcase would likely run back-to-back with the men's showcase, in February and August.

North America's second-largest fashion week collapsed in July with organizers citing a lack of local support.
