Finally that time of year has come again, and I feel it is almost as amazing as Christmas! That’s right my fellow fashionistas – it’s FASHION WEEK here in Toronto! ‘There’s No Place Like Holts’ kicked off the season as always with numerous spectacular collections by Jeremy Laing, Smythe, Naked and Famous, Twentycluny, Denis Gagnon, Dennis Merotto, Wings and Horns and Lida Baday.
Up next was famous Canadian/Portuguese designer Arthur Mendonca, with a stunning collection from peplums, which was a major success on all European runways, floral prints that were enhanced with punches of pinks/oranges/purples, herringbone prints, exposed zippers and much more! The major highlight of the show was Mendonca’s choice to use international androgynous model Andrej Pejic, who ROCKED the runway in a copper tone pant suit, turquoise blouse and gold oxfords!
To close opening night was Lala Berlin, who used cool, crisp designs, lots of whites and muted graphics!
Stay tune for highlights from Day 2!
