We’re three days into Toronto Fashion Week and we’ve seen 12 amazing collections, including VAWK, LINE Knitwear, Sid Neigum and Mikhael Kale who kicked off the week in true style. The busy streets of Toronto have been full of stylish fashion lovers and they’ve all come together to admire the beautiful designs of some of Canada’s greatest talent. World MasterCard Fashion Week runway trends that we’re seeing are a lot of oversized pieces, exquisite details, lower hemlines, punk rock looks, and lots of black.
VAWK designer, Sunny Fong, incorporated dark hues, like black, leather and sheer fabrics also. A few of the looks were high-low which had the trains floating behind the model as they walked down the runway. The details in the garments, like the understated statement collar, inverted triangle patterns and fur panels, created visual interest for plain silhouettes.
With winter showing no signs of letting up, even though it’s (almost) spring, Line Knitwear would be the perfect collection for Torontonians to be wearing to keep warm. The LINE Knitwear collection is for the stylish modern woman. It features head-to-toe looks that are feminine and plays with different textures. Even though the typical fall colours are dark, the designers threw in some pink and blue hues to brighten the looks.
Sid Neigum’s runway show featured a string performance and designs that were captivating. The collection was full of bold, metallics and architecturally detailed dresses, coats, and capes in an autumnal palette. It was all about transforming two dimensional into three and this was done with lazer cutting and mathematical pattern design.
Mikhael Kale treated the audience to a whirlwind of colour and ruffles in the form of an edgy and feminine collection. Lavish patterns, luxurious layers, studded trenches and fantastic bomber jackets came down the runway. Leather jackets are definitely a must for next Fall.
