Baby pigs! Baby pigs! The talk of the first night of World Mastercard Fashion Week was definitely the cute baby pigs being carried down the runway by models at the Korhani show.
Aside from the cute little porkers, the always-interesting runway showcase of home rugs had some very cool concepts, like the three models wearing rugs with giant faces woven into them.
Holt Renfrew always puts on a great show of Canadian designers, and this season was no exception. We especially loved the all-Canadian music that ran throughout the show. Some looks that stood out for us include Twenty Cluny‘s pretty, feminine cocktail dresses…
Smythe‘s fun outerwear pieces….
and Jeremy Laing‘s…well, everything.
The highlight of the Pavoni show was all of the elegant gowns that flowed one after the other. This designer is definitely someone to look to for a red carpet event.
We loved the detailing on the shoulders of this piece:
Anything richly red, with layers upon layers of draped fabric and body-hugging attributes, gets our thumbs up:
Yesterday the tents featured Adrian Wu, Laura Siegel, Sid Neigum, Chloe comme Parris, Martin Lim, Soia & Kyo, Lundström Collection and Matis by Lucian Matis. There were definitely favourites from every show, but here are a few highlights:
Laura Siegel’s layered pieces would look perfectly at home on Toronto’s streets.
Chloe comme Parris had details we loved – coiled braids, dark red lips, heels with chains and studs on pants. We also loved the floral prints in this dress.
Soia & Kyo’s cozy, luxe coats and jackets had us excited about what we’ll purchase for next winter, even though we’re just barely out of this one.
This printed top was one of our top picks from the Matis by Lucian Matis show that closed the evening.
Fashion week is off to a strong start, and we can’t wait to see what else is in store for the rest of the week!
