My favourite part of fashion week is wrap-up time!! Spring/Summer 2012 is going to be impressive with what we have seen on the runway. This season it was so great to be back in the tents, it makes it really feel like fashion week and the downtown location made everyone’s life easier I bet! Although there were some problems with less seating this season, all in all it was a great set-up and location.
Bustle and David Dixon went a lot softer with their collections still having their staple designs but more of a hint of bold colours. Lots of adventurous colours are going too been seen this coming spring and summer 2012 as we have seen on the runway. Another thing we have been seeing is a lot of on the go pieces for women in charge like the Attitude Collection by Jay Manuel. This collection has something for every woman on the go or just ready to get on that plane and hit the beach. By having Arthur Mendonca hitting the runway opening night his collection blew the week wide open. His pieces were a mix of vibrant strong colours and straight edge designs but we have to give him credit for knowing what women really want and will look amazing in, it’s something he really has an eye for.
Denis Gagnon wowed the crowds with his very artsy short film which went right into his collection. His pieces were immaculate and include some crazy floral designs with some simple but very sleek pieces. We also cannot forget Micalla Jewelry ; I had seen her stuff hit the runway at Ottawa Fashion Week but at LGFW she really got my attention. Her collection is very different than most, all her pieces are very wearable and there is something for everyone to wear and enjoy. Will we see a collaboration with Swarovski? We hope so as these pieces are a work of art. The spring/summer 2012 runway was filled with an oasis of bold colours, floral and wild prints, cocktail and long flowing dresses which were very colourful and delightful to see. The men on the runway dressed in dapper and casual short suits with lots of cotton and linen.

During LGFW Fall/Winter 2011 I got to meet Deborah Cox and hang out with her for the evening, she was such a pleasure to meet.I had a really great evening and looking up to her amazing talent as a artist since I was young just made this experience out of this world. She was there for the Attitude show by Jay Manuel which was a great display of his talent. We had a great time backstage and it was like a childhood dream fulfilled. Hope you enjoy the pictures, until next time.
