On Day 1 of Fashion Week in Toronto, Sid Neigum was hands down my favourite, and quite possibly my favourite of the overall week as well. His designs were fresh and modern, and I loved the use of white, black and grey that presented such a clean and wearable collection. I think that is what I really loved, his combination of high fashion with elements that are completely wearable off the runway.
On Day 2, Target made their debut of SS15 merchandise on the runway. Other than the affordability of the clothing, they put on a show that was different from the rest. It was bright and loud and incredibly fun. The models were laughing and smiling, the music was upbeat and really got the audience engaged. There were massive goodie bags on every seat, and the finale hit us with streamers and the infamous Target bullseye dog!
On Day 3, Mackage presented their SS15 collection and boy was it a treat. With Mackage we are used to dark, natural palettes, but they surprised us with their use of bright blues, yellows, and even pink! It was definitely something out of the unexpected for the brand, but it really made the leather jackets edgy and cool and the perfect spring accessory.
This Australian-Canadian designer was another one of my favourites of the week. Her line was incredibly fun and definitely different from what I have seen. It is a collection that I would normally not think of wearing, but after seeing it on the runway, it inspired me to have more fun with my clothes, and this is a collection that I would honestly love to get my hands on. I especially love the bright red and green beaded dresses, I would definitely enjoy rocking those pieces!
On Day 4, my favourite show was definitely Malorie Urbanovitch. She had an array of dark and bright colours in her collection, and honestly, I would wear every single thing she presented. Her pieces are subtle but incredibly different at the same time. I believe the best collections are the ones that are not too loud but still make a bold statement, and this is what made this collection stand out for me.
On Day 5, Stephen Caras made a statement with not only his gorgeous dresses, but the long and flowy veils he put at the tail ends of them. What I would not give to be strutting down a runway with that gorgeous veil! Definitely gave me some ideas of my own. His collection was a mix of elegance and fun and you can definitely see it in the models faces and walks that they were thoroughly enjoying walking in those pieces.
There you have it y’all. My round up of faves from fashion week. I could have went on and showed you a lot more because there was a ton of amazing collections this season so I suggest you come on down to fashion week and I will see you in March!
