I saved my favourite outfit for the final day of World MasterCard Fashion Week – save the best for last and all that jazz. I wouldn’t say my favourite shows were necessarily on this day but that’s not to say they weren’t just as amazing as the others. It was a day of farewells to the people you only see twice a year and a day to make plans to see others again soon, and to relish in the last full day of shows until next spring.
My look: “Wear Canadian made” – and accessorize with Peru
I know all about the need to support Canadian fashion. Given that World MasterCard Fashion Week is a time for celebrating Canadian talent and fashion, it’s almost a faux pas not to wear something Canadian. However, I’m not only a Canadian and chose to express that on this day by accessorizing with some of my best Peruvian purchases.
When you think of Peru, what comes to mind first? I bet it’s not these chic ankle boots, silk tank or round sunnies (the clutch, maybe). I’m determined to change that. I found some of the coolest stuff in my closet on my last trip to Peru and I can’t wait to discover more next time I’m there.
WHAT I’M WEARING:
white silk tank | EL CLOSET DE MI HERMANA
black culottes | TOPSHOP
black leather ankle boots | MENTHA Y CHOCOLATE
grey wool coat | TOPSHOP
sunnies & clutch from Peruvian markets
Toronto Fashion Week Day 5: Stephan Caras
This collection definitely felt like spring! There were a few designers during the week that played heavy rain and thunder sounds as tracks to their show, which felt extremely fall/winter to me, but Stephan Caras took the spring theme seriously. Flowers were blooming everywhere! I loved the bright colours paired with a bright lip too.
The collection took a turn towards the sultry Stephan Caras dresses we all know and love but then ended back on a brighter note with a full, floral printed skirt. Love.
Toronto Fashion Week Day 5: Mikael D
This collection was very sexy. Lace, cut-outs, slits and slinky material dominated the runway. These were the kind of dresses that you wear when you want the whole room to stop and look at you – you’d be an idiot not to stop and stare.
I liked the fact that all the models had the same wig on. For me, it allowed me to focus more on the clothes instead of the different hairstyles of every model. But enough about the hair, that’s not what we’re here to talk about. I’d really, really love to find a place to wear the 2 piece crop top & full skirt outfit (posted last below). So gorgeous.
