Hot Canadian Fashion showdown

The top 10 looks from the TFI new designer showdown

tfi new labels 
The Toronto Fashion Incubator swept four of its most promising young designers onto the runway this week as part of the group’s annual New Labels competition. Toronto-based Christopher Paunil, Laura Siegel (a Fashion Week veteran), Nomad of the Sun and AliceAzur each showed their best, most carefully-honed pieces before a panel of judges and a room of fashion insiders. The prize: $25,000 in cash, an editorial in FLARE Magazine, and a professionally-produced lookbook.
Who came out on top? That would be AliceAzur’s Miriam Baker, a recent Ryerson grad, who was met with a huge hug from her visibly-moved folks at the end of the runway after accepting her prize. (Aww.) But the competition was stiff; prize or no, you’ll be seeing more of the runners-up yet.
Here are my picks for the top 10 looks from TFI New Labels 2014.
ABOVE: Nomad Of The Sun’s Ashley Boutcher focuses on swimwear tailor-made for lounging glamorously by the poolside. Her geometric suits were often layered under flowing chiffon – in this case, black sheer trousers and a plunging-front swimsuit made for ’70s-style glamour.

Fashion Retailers Weigh In

French Fashion, State Your Case: Retailers Weigh In Photo by Giovanni Giannoni:   
 
Linda Fargo, senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation, Bergdorf Goodman: “It’s a great tribute to the overall season when choosing one collection above all is so difficult. However, Céline keeps bubbling up to the top of the catwalk.  You know when something’s a game-changer when you want to eradicate your closet and restock it with a new vision like this. From the catwalk to the Stores.
David Rubenstein, vice president and general merchandise manager, Jeffrey New York: “My single-favorite collection is Céline. The catwalk show had an incredible energy. The collection is constantly evolving, and Phoebe is always pushing the needle forward.  It all just seemed like what women will want to wear.” French fashion impacts the industry as usual especially on the catwalk.
Tancrède de Lalun, merchandise manager for men’s and women’s wear, Printemps: French fashion, “Céline straight from the catwalk. After revolutionizing fashion four years ago, Phoebe Philo needed to renew herself and she did it with brio and talent. She opens up a world of possibilities for all the brands over the next few seasons, and what I like is that she was able to take a risk and reinvent herself exactly when she needed to.”  French fashion is an interesting factor in all of this.

PARIS F/W Spring 2014 starts today

©ourtesy of FirstComesFashion & Vogue.co.uk
paris fashion weekPARIS FASHION WEEK starts today – an epic nine-day-long marathon that ends next Wednesday. It’s the mother of all fashion capitals, the home of fashion’s biggest and oldest names, from Chanel and Dior to Balenciaga and Givenchy. If energy levels are beginning to wane among the fashion press, who have now been on the move for three weeks, Paris is always certain to inject a new verve. –> Instagrams of #PFW 

The action gets underway today with Anthony Vaccarello – who is rumoured to be Versus’s next collaborator. His sexy, skin-tight dresses are a given though, and we look forward to seeing them worn by his model muse, Karlie Kloss, who is a regular on his catwalk. Wednesday’s big show is Rochas and all eyes will be on creative director Marco Zanini, who is rumoured to be leaving for recently-revived fashion house Schiaparelli

Marc Jacobs & How Dark is Back

“Just LOVE this ad campaign”

marc-jacobs 00

On Friday the 13th it was all about gory darkness. After all, who said that Spring is all about light, fluidity and ethereal fabrics? For SS2014, Marc Jacobs message sounded loud and clear: Fuck Spring! His mood was irreverent punk meets embroidery winter fantasy, chanelled through his rebel wig peroxide blondes (Cara Delevigne, Sky Ferreira, Lily McNemany and more). His mood (which is flirting with the doom & gloom of the day) is clearly mirrored into his collection for yet another season (after all last time he was refusing to get out of his pajamas).
Undoubtedly, there were pieces that will still make the cut, as the above dresses can perfectly coexist with Muiccia’s take on dark tropicana. And with the given weather condition changes that won’t give it a rest, something tells me that fashion afficionados will be into those outfits in no time. The only thing left to see is what he’s going to show on the Louis Vuitton show end of month.

Part II is here, with the no other than Derek Lam! New York Fashion Week is still on in full swing and I can’t keep up!!! I may just do multiple posts and weekend posts to keep up with everything! 
One thing I have to say about Derek Lam’s runway show was the shoes…. oh my gosh the shoes!!!! I instantly fell in love with all of them! Derek Lam decided to go a different route this year and not follow the rest of the designers with monochromatic looks, instead, he went with prints.

NYFW: Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2014

IT’S not often, actually, that fashion gives rise to new items. We’ve seen it, done it, got the T-shirt all before and we’re more concerned with rifling through the drawers of the past than we are setting a new agenda when it comes to the technicalities. Narciso Rodriguez has other ideas and this evening introduced us to the “half skirt”, a skirt and shorts hybrid that is just as suggestive as the mini but has a little more practicality about it. Nice. Elsewhere among the collection and the designer mostly stuck to square cuts, bandeau necklines and flat-looking shapes. From afar it looked masculine, androgynous but close-up there were slithers of shine and layers of pretty lace to imbue a sense of femininity.

For the spring 2014 shows, which kick off Thursday at Lincoln Center and other locales around New York City, those inspirations ranged from Hollywood glamour queens to ancient tribes to modern art. Here’s a peek at some of those fashionable inspirations (in the designers’ own words). — By Julie Gordon, amNew York

Neck cuff, is the new trend?

cuff1_thumb_600x400
First we had the statement necklaces and those have been around for a long time, there are still a bit around but not like in the beginning. But of course they couldn’t be around for a long time, in the fashion industry a thing ( clothes, accessories) will only be able to be around for a short period of time before it gets replaced by something else. And that is what is happening now with the statement necklace and the neck cuff… well sort of. Is the neck cuff going to replace the statement necklace?

 The neck cuffs have been spotted in a lot of collections of top designers like Michael Kors and Céline.

Belgian designer Raf Simons fully embraced the man skirt for his Spring/Summer 2013 presentation at Paris Fashion Week, pulling inspiration from womenswear collections to create masculine versions of dresses and oversized t-shirts. Pop art was also a big influence, with boxy androgynous silhouettes, clean lines, and lots of bold blocks of pink, green, and blue. Vintage-style prints reminiscent of 1920s graphic design also featured on many of the pieces, with depictions of male athletes accompanied by text such as “artificially flavored”.

Not only do we love Jean-Pierre Braganza’s name (“Brrrraganzaaaaa!”) we love the looks we saw during The Shows, a pre-Toronto Fashion Week runway presentation held at Andrew Richards Design’s venue space in Toronto. His pop-art inspired Spring 2013 collection featured strong-shouldered blazers with hits of teal, black, and cream with bold graphic prints.
Fashion:  Graphic pantsuits and wedge heels in nude, black, and black with silver toe straps.
 
Beauty: Loose-and-intriguing fishtail braids with flattering wisps at the temples for that messy braid look we love.
