Our second day at the tents started off with a fun presentation featuring six designs inspired by iconic Disney character Minnie Mouse. Hosted by the Beckerman sisters Caillianne and Samantha, the casual presentation enlisted the designers from the Mercedes Benz Start Up presentation including Beaufille, Laura Siegel, Black.I, VAIKEN, Eliza Faulkner, and Sid Neigum which took place on Monday, to compete for the best #MinnieStyle. After we’d had a little time to walk through the presentation to see all six dresses, the Beckerman’s and Minnie took the stage to award Sid Neigum’s dress, which was composed of over 300 mouse ears, the prize.
Next up Montreal-based designer Melissa Nepton took us on a monochromatic journey for the spring summer 2015 season (with a few pops of soft pastel thrown in). We always look forward to her presentation each season, and she certainly did not disappoint with a delicate feminine collection that was at once both wearable and fashionable. Inspired by 1920s sportswear, the collection featured geometric brocades, leather detailing, mesh cut-outs, chevron appliqué, and draped silk pieces. “It’s a versatile collection that can be worn to work, to a brunch date with girlfriends, or for a night out,” said a very pregnant, glowing Nepton post-show last night, and we’re pumped for the warm weather to arrive again so we can start wearing it.
Day two wrapped up with the always hyped Target style presentation which showcased in-store collections for the fall and winter season. Men, women, and adorable children strutted their stuff down the red runway in affordably fashionable ensembles as an accordionist and fiddler played along to songs including Autre Ne Veut’s “Play By Play”. The lively show commenced with a confetti cannon and of course the adorable Target dog.
