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.

Lucian Matis show night was just brilliant and breathtaking. I always love seeing his shows because I always see a hint of McQueen, but in his own unique Matis way. His collection was so well put together and you can really see how well he knows a woman’s body and how the pieces flow to show off the woman’s amazing shape. From all the Fashion weeks up to now and all the shows for Spring/Summer 2010 we are really seeing some really bold colours and I am really excited to see how it will all pan out. I hope you enjoy the video and pictures below and fall in love with this BRILLIANT collection. Also we cannot forget Candice and Alison luxury events always know how to put on a great event or show!!
Kirk and Stephan have pulled it off again. While arriving to Greta Constantine, the much anticipated opening of Toronto Fashion season was exciting. The energy was buzzing and the place was packed with Celebrities, Socialites, bloggers and Industry insiders. Filling the seats we waited for the show to start. The show was beautiful with great clean lines; bold colors and what we know and love best about their clothes are clean and crisp draping. I hope you enjoy the pictures I took sitting front row and watch out for these amazing clothes to make a splash this Spring/Summer 2012
