Toronto Fashion Week

Last Friday was the closing of Toronto's LG Fashion Week also marking its 25th season of showcasing Canadian talent.  I have volunteered to help out with Fashion Week in the past for the SS 2010 as well as FW 2010 to experience a bit of what goes on behind the scenes.  One thing that hasn't changed is the over flow of people in the stands who eagerly await the shows of Joe Fresh, Pink Tartan and Vawk.   Our talent in this Country is increasing and our Country as a whole is beginning to get international recognition in the fashion world that is exciting.  This season there were two shows that stood out to me.  The first was by Laura Siegel who is a young woman that had a beautiful carefree collection of faint neutral colours, fluttery fabrics and fringe and layered outfits using scarves.  The next show I would like to draw attention to was the Korhani Home Rug Runway Show.  This show was so fun!  It started off with the creativity of wearable 'rugs' then halfway through the collection turned into an Alice in Wonderland theme that had models looking like the stories characters and even incorporated real bunnies into the show that were held by a few of the models.
