Toronto Fashion Week is back, with Canadian design talent showcasing their fall winter 2016 collections.
Kicking things off was Mikhael Kale, who progressed his signature embellishment technique to a new realm – the street, on sportswear silhouettes that contrast the evening wear we have seen from Kale over the past few seasons. The streetwear aesthetic was driven home with kick ass transparent knee high galoshes with a matching trench and a jewel encrusted grey sweatshirt reading, tongue-in-cheek, “Kale”.
Next up was NARCES, who showed a collection of ’20’s inspired looks with intricate lace, bead and rhinestone work fit for any gala, cocktail party, or any occasion really where you want to feel fierce.
Christopher Paunil took to the runway next, showcasing plunging necklines alongside volume, slinky fabrics next to structure – lending a modern approach to evening and bridal wear.
Closing out #TFW day one was the highly anticipated fall winter 2016 collection from Sid Neigum. Fresh off his debut at London Fashion Week and a “one to watch” nod from Vogue, Neigum opted to show his collection presentation style, allowing the viewer to see the texture and dimension of his pieces up close – it was a smart move, as the detail could easily be lost on the runway.
