It’s not just the red carpet that was all designer at TIFF 2010. If you looked behind the paparazzi, the handlers, the hangers-on and of course that guy or gal in the sunglasses, who doesn’t do anything but be “the person in the sunglasses, even though it’s 3:30 in the morning” person…. I digress. I hope you got a look at what your server was wearing. Chances are, it was designer.

Joeffer Caoc outfitted the crew at Spice Route in Asian-inspired elegance. I particularly loved the “Nehru” collar on the men’s shirt, and did you notice the “Obi”-style pouches in Fall 2010′s burnt orange?

Over at Ciao Wine Bar, the staff sported George, Wal-Mart’s venture into the hipper realm. I was quite thrilled with the simple form-fitting black dress and Mondrian-inspired scarf.

Next door and four floors up, at the ET Canada Lounge the bar staff wore simple Guess tube tops. At the Stella Artois tap, I was a little disappointed. Really—just a logo on a T-shirt? After all the great commercials we’ve seen, I would have thought Stella might have upped the ante.
