Toronto Fashion Week: DUY F/W 2013

I totally agree with why the Mercedes-Benz Start Up Program chose DUY as the winner last season! All you have to do is take a look at his collection. Focused on the Arctic nature, this collection showcased very icy & mystical pieces! Using sequins to portray snowflakes, wools and thick knits to make us feel warm in the Arctic North and furs and leathers that showcased the wildlife of the North, there was no doubt that DUY nailed it.  DUY’s color choices were thought out to perfection, consisting of icy blues, creams, whites grays, blacks and moss. To me this collection was a show stopper and a definite hit at this season’s Toronto Fashion Week! *Photos by OPIQUE / Top of the Runway

Toronto Fashion Week: Pink Tartan F/W 2013

Pink Tartan’s F/W 2013 had to probably be one of my top 3 shows of this season’s Toronto Fashion Week! I was lucky enough to interview designer Kimberley Newport-Mimran backstage to talk about the fabulous collection! The inspiration behind her collection this season was her love for American Horror Story and that Hitchcock femme fetal style. She used Jessica Lange, or even a younger Jessica as her muse. Newport-Mimran wanted to showcase a well put together woman, but everyone else not knowing what’s going on inside her head.  All the clothes were very sophisticated and so well coordinated that I believe she portrayed her collection just the way she wanted to!  Even though the show featured all of Kim’s Top Pick’s, she did have a…
