On Monday, the doors to LG Fashion Week Beauty by L’Oréal Paris officially opened. For those without passes, the Fourth Floor is taking you to the runway’s front row.
Holt Renfrew took care of business with their show “Can’t Live Without Canadian Fashion”.
The country’s leading retailer of high-end fashion celebrated our homegrown talent, sending spectacular looks from Todd Lynn, Jeremy Laing, Lida Baday, Ezra and Greta Constantine, Pink Tartan, Wings + Horns, Smythe, Twenty Cluny, Denis Gagnon and Canada Goose down the runway.
Here are some of our fave looks.
Denis Gagnon’s brightly coloured tights paired with chic dresses and big wedges.
Smythe’s pale blue coat with camel-coloured leather details.
Jeremy Laing’s wicked combos of textiles, prints, colours and silhouettes. Especially this one.
Bringing fur innovation to the runway, Izma by Izzy Camilleri and Adrian Mainella combines luxury and warmth. Made from Canadian wild fur, Izma designs are classic pieces with modern versatility. Models wore the luxe furs as black jackets, neutral stoles and as accents on blazers. We loved the sexy, 1920s-inspired styling, including red lips, rich velvet and curly bobs. Clearly, Izma is chicest way to stay warm during the coldest of Canadian winters.
The brother and sister duo behind the contemporary label brought modern tribal prints to the studio space. Inspired by travels across four continents, this globe-trotting design duo crafted urban-meets-African separates in colours of olive, navy and black.
For day two, we unanimously loved Chloe comme Parris and Pink Tartan. Most of us would purchase virtually everything from each collection.
We especially loved the half sheer/half knit bias cut tunic from CCP and the triple strap backpacks were also killer.

Pink Tartan was top knot central – this hairstyle popped up on nearly half of the models.
Loved the the neutral, military-inspired pieces, especially with the chic hats.
Kimberley Newport-Mimran gave a subtle nod to the ballet trend with softly coloured chiffon skirts with simple oxford-style tops. She also had an amazing music mix for her girls to stomp down the runway to. (You can download a copy here!).
As usual, Joe Fresh was fun, colourful and… fresh.
A lot of bright pop orange was infused into the collection which will lighten up the dreary days of winter.
The clean, versatile shift dresses are suitable for so many bodies.
Joe Fresh proves again that they are the go-to source for basics with a bit of a twist.
