"I am very excited about starting this blog with Sam. I want this blog to be able to communicate the different cultures of Canadian academic institutions, both to fellow classmates; as well as to a broader national based, fashion focused student body." - MDF

We collectively believe that style is an internalized constitution that only the individual can amend or adapt. These changes are dictated not by fashion trends or the latest runway shows, but rather, a firm understanding of what one likes, and dislikes. Fashion is a cult, style is a feeling. The intention of this blog is to demonstrate the many eclectic and original styles that coexist at universities across Canada. 

Collegiate Street Style was founded in 2012 by two University of Toronto students seeking creative refuge from their very structured academic lives. Inspired by the ever changing style influences of their downtown Toronto campus, Collegiate Street Style seeks to explore the diverse cultures of student style that exist at campuses throughout Canada. As a registered association at the University of Toronto, CSS is operated by students, for students, placing specific emphasis on the blending of personal style and school pride.
