This week is Toronto Fashion Week and I got to go with my friends to the first day and here is a recap of what happened:
Mani Jassal presented a beautiful "Free Spirit" inspired show featuring poetry as an opening film. The collection brought us all those bohemian 70's flower power looks with saris and long dresses.
Mani Jassal's beauty was marked by glossy lips and little baby breath flowers on the models long beautiful hair.
Narces' Designer and Creative Director Nikki Wirthensohn Yassemi, definitely brings her international background to the runway. Her pieces are inspired by the romantic glamour and elegance of mid-20th century, and her flirty approach to evening dresses is something so beautiful you want to rush to the runway and steal a piece. This collection was marked by a lot of florals, transparency and glamour.
Narces show was not only highly anticipated for its beautiful evening gowns, but also for its beauty. Wet slicked back hair and earth tone makeup marked the runway and those beautiful headpieces were simply, for lack of better words, breathtaking!
Bates show started with a very inspirational message from the designer about his struggles to make it in the fashion industry. Looking at him now, with Italian-made menswear and with his new collection about to start being sold at Nordstrom, seems like all that struggle has paid off.
His contemporary casual outlook on menswear stunned the audience with yellow stripe shirts and pantsuits, sober dark blazers and, my two favourites, a hot pink and a coral sweatshirt.
After Bates' show, we were directed to an elevator, one of those industrial elevators you only really see in New York movies, that took us to a parking garage. We were all still rushing to our seats when the show started. And it was spectacular! Sid Neigum is known for his sober/darker tones, specially black, and also for his signature architectural geometric sheer gowns, which were really well showcased last night, but in softer pastel colours. Absolutely stunning!
The beauty on Neigum's show was as simple as it can be. Perfect skin, thick bushy eyebrows, hair pulled straight back. No distractions showcase his beautiful gowns.
