Backstage Beauty: Line Knitwear Fall 2011

Friday April 8, 2011 by Siofan


The beyond gorgeous knitwear of Line defies our idea of woolens every season. For their Fall 2011 presentation models looked like heroines you'd see at a train station in an Evelyn Waugh adaptation, rather than winter refugees in a mountain hideaway scene. The makeup furthered that 1930s, English countryside feeling.

Backstage Beauty: Amanda Lew Kee Fall 2011

Friday April 8, 2011 by Siofan


A luminous face, metallic eye and intricate, twisted hair complimented the foiled and sheer dresses by Amanda Lew Kee at her Fall 2011 LG Fashion Week presentation. While the flashy fabrics were definitely eye catching, the long silver nails flickering from the models fingers were consistently pulling our attention.

Backstage Beauty: Comrags Fall 2011

Friday April 8, 2011 by Siofan


Comrags Fall 2011 runway show featured their better-than-garden-variety floral prints, which played well with the set and brushed out curls and soft, smudged eye.

We learned a little cheat backstage watching Eric Del Monaco do this style. To give hair the appearance of deeply waved, pin-backed hair there's no need to curl the entire head. The back half of models' hair was roughed up...

Backstage Beauty: Joe Fresh Fall 2011

Thursday April 7, 2011 by Siofan


Joe Fresh has made fans with their on trend clothes at amazing prices. For their Fall 2011 runway presentation at LG Fashion Week they kept the beauty ethos just as democratic—the luxe for less beauty message on models was said with easy hair and rich, gold eyes.

Backstage Beauty: Pink Tartan Fall 2011

Thursday April 7, 2011 by Siofan


Before models took to the runway in a mix of military tailoring and poofy skirts, they were given a beauty look to mix similar elements of hard and soft. With a sleek and shiny tight topknot and dark full eye the look was decidedly more hard than soft. We're loving this more controlled version of the topknot we usually see in a messy nest on so many girls heads (we mean that as a compliment,...

Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2011 Trends: Sheer Fabrics

Tuesday April 5, 2011 by Siofan


Sheer fabrics took the form of buttoned blouses and ruffled dresses, adorned with peekaboo appliqués, satin paneling or as some designers envisioned, spare and revealing. Black prevailed, making the look decidedly more evening than office, though with its lack of coverage the colour isn't the only reason you'd be more likely to wear these when the lights are at their lowest.

Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2011 Trends: Sweater Dresses

Tuesday April 5, 2011 by Siofan


Every little bit of warmth makes a difference come winter when you live in the Great White North, and we can't wait to cozy up in these thick, chic-spun knit dresses. In rich tones, winter white or muted oatmeals, layered over a turtleneck or belted, we're feeling hot for these sweet woolens.

Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2011 Trends: Textured Skirts

Tuesday April 5, 2011 by Siofan


Flashing down the Fall runways at Toronto fashion week were skirts in all manner of fringe, feather, 3D flower appliqué, and metallic strips. The effect was magpie syndrome—we wanted to fly off right then with the shiny slivered skirts, or in the case of Pink Tartan's feathers take them home to our aviary to roost.

Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2011 Trends: Coats

Monday April 4, 2011 by Siofan


If there's one investment we never regret, it's a winter coat. A coat that keeps out the chill with a vibrant hue (the neoprene orange overcoats at Joe Fresh made a huge impact on the crowds when they first appeared) or create a cocoon-like form that allows plenty of room for layering, like those designed by Jeremy Laing, Vawk and Lundström. The coats that felt freshest  were full...

Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2011 Trends: Velvet

Monday April 4, 2011 by Siofan


Velvet is a fabric as rich in texture as it is in history—iconic designers who were known to use the fabric to dramatic effect include Vionnet, Poiret, and Fortuny. That nostalgia is seen in the velvet used by designers for fall, in the rich colours and draping and gathering. In the looks of Jeremy Laing and Chloé comme Parris, the textile's equally gothic flavour surfaces, all dark and...
