Last month, in honour of our 2012 Stylebook (now available for purchase on newsstands and online), we embarked on a hunt for Toronto Life’s Most Stylish Reader. Our readers submitted a snapshot of themselves at their sartorial best and told us why they are among the city’s most stylish; our editors narrowed the choice down to 10 finalists; and then we left it to the readers to vote for the winner. The voting frenzy is over, and we’re pleased to announce that the title belongs to Andrew Coimbra, 25, who was born and raised in Toronto, works for Philip Sparks and is entering his final year in the fashion design program at George Brown (he also has a pair of stylishly curated Tumblrs). “If I am unique—or if my style is unique—it’s because of my personality, I think. And I would say the same for everyone,” he said. Coimbra wins $2,000 worth of prizes, and an invite to our Most Stylish party at the Shangri-La this Thursday to celebrate our second annual list of the city’s most stylish people. We expect he’ll fit in well.
