@HudsonsBay announced Jared Abrahamson, Grace Glowicki, Mylene MacKay and Sophie Nelisse as the four Canadians who will participate in the 2016 TIFF intensive professional development programme. Hudson's Bay is the Official Fashion Retailer of the Toronto International Film Festival and they dressed the Rising Stars in anticipation of the upcoming World Class film festival.

“We are honoured to dress the talented group of actors selected for the 2016 tiff Rising Stars programme,” said Suzanne Timmins, Senior Vice President and Fashion Director at Hudson’s Bay. “Great style goes a long way in the early stages of building a career, and we are so proud to help these artists make that first impression, a lasting one.” Outfits were chosen from fashion brands H Halston and 1670 which are available in Canada only at Hudson's Bay.
Toronto's annual film festival begins Sept 8 and ends Sept 18, 2016. The opening film will be The Magnificent Seven, directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Eathan Hawke.

"TIFF Rising Stars immerses four chosen actors in a series of public events and private industry meetings during the Festival. They undertake intensive professional development with international casting directors, filmmakers, producers and development executives. Moreover, the Stars will be front row centre at some of the biggest red-carpet events at the Festival."

"Jared Abrahamson: The Manitoba-born star of the hockey drama Hello Destroyer sports clean sophistication in a classic black suit, detailed with a freshly pressed button-up and slim-fitted pants. The powerful single-breasted suit features notched lapels and will take the Rising Star from press conferences to red carpets.

Grace Glowicki: Glowicki, the winner of Sundance Film Festival’s Short Film Special Jury Award for Outstanding Performance for her role in Her Friend Adam, maintains her self-pronounced “androgynous” style in a chic two-piece outfit. Her striking look features an elegant top with shoulder cut-outs paired with cropped pleated dress pants.

Sophie Nélisse: Sixteen-year-old lead in Mean Dreams, Nélisse, joins the Rising Stars roster in a loose swing dress. The long-sleeved dress is on-trend with arm slits and a low-dipped back that channels bohemian vibes.

Mylène Mackay: Now in her first major role on the big screen, Mackay debuts her TIFF stardom wearing tapered tuxedo pants, softened with an effortlessly chic cotton top."
