FRONT ROW: Line Knitwear F/W 2011 grande finale

Posted on Apr 6, 2011

Friday, April 1/2011

Line Knitwear closed LG Fashion Week on Friday to a packed house of fashion industry heavy hitters with a stunning  collection entitled “Migrant Muse”, inspired by European settlers and the clothes they wore as they traveled to the new world. Since its inception in 2000, I have collected some of the coziest Line knits in my everyday wardrobe, some of which have become timeless go-to items in my closet.

Toronto based designers John Muscat and Jennifer Wells successfully create another luxurious collection of their signature knits, chunky crochets, silks, layers and layers of floor length looks with the addition of ultra glamorous fur (my guilty pleasure). I can only imagine the mastery that goes into the creation of the intricate workings of knit and jersey. I was seated front row next to FDCC (Fashion Design Council of Canada) president Robin Kay and were in awe of some of the amazing details that these photos don’t even begin to do justice.

EVENT: Greta Constantine SS 2011 with Coco Rocha

One half of the Greta Constantine designer duo…Stephen Wong with supermodel Coco Rocha

Greta Constantine Fashion Shows are always a highly anticipated crowd favorite, of course because of their  display of their “accessible luxury line of ready-to-wear womenswear” but also because of the socialite and celebrity crowd they attract, so its always fun to mingle in the crowd of a Greta Constantine event and catch up with old and new friends. And the fact that they had supermodel Coco Rocha walk their runway of their Spring Summer 2011 Show was the cherry on top. It was good times on a Friday night. xo

Fefe Dobson looks fabulous! I dressed Fefe back in the day before her first album even came out and again when she opened one of my crazy Rock & Roll fashion shows during Toronto Fashion Week 2006, so we go way back and it’s always great running into her.

October 15, 2010…Toronto

Last night I attended the Greta Constantine Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Show in Toronto where the oh so amazing @Oh_So_Coco supermodel Coco Rocha strutted her stuff down the runway. Designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong presented a brilliant collection of their Grecian dresses & gowns fit for a Goddess and brought out a massive crowd of Toronto’s Fashion A-listers. There wasn’t an empty seat in sight and no standing room available. Here’s a little glimpse before I post the party pics! Kudos boys. xoxo

EVENT: Audi presents Art of Progression at Brick Works

Posted on Oct 15, 2010

26 500x332 EVENT: Audi presents Art of Progression at Brick Works

After the  ‘God Save the Queen‘ Event at The Room (at the Bay), we quickly headed to the Art of Progression event presented by Audi at Brick Works where they featured 3 runway shows by NADA, Joeffer Caoc & Dimitri Chris. The venue was grand and it was also outdoors so we froze our butts off in the name of fashion. Its safe to say that Toronto Fashion Week is here early. I’m not complaining. I just love anything that gives me a reason to get dressed up and get fancy with a crowd who appreciates fancy.
