Looking for something to do this weekend in Toronto? Are you into fashion and art?
Check out Fashion Art Toronto running from APRIL 18-22, 2017
Fashion Art Toronto is an arts & fashion week that celebrates contemporary art + design through runway shows, live performances, fashion films, photography exhibits and art installations. This annual multi-arts event, held every April, features 200 Canadian and International fashion designers and artists each year, and welcomes over 5,000 guests; including buyers, curators, the media, and fashion and art lovers in general.
This years theme of Fashion Art Toronto is FASHION EVOLUTION, which looks at key moments and circumstances in history that brought about shifts in fashion. The theme will revisit fashion trends of the past, look at fashion of today, and will imagine how fashion may evolve in the future.
We were honoured to be able to attend the show and watch the magnificent designs strut the runway. The clothing pieces were a hybrid of both fashion and art, and included many pieces that you would want to snatch up right then and there! Here are some of the highlights:
Before walking into the runway room, there were art exhibits outside. We loved the clothes on display!
Justine Latour opened the show with stunningly beautiful art/fashion pieces. While they were almost totally see through, I LOVED the looks and wish I could wear them in my everyday life.
Odrea was up next with stunning white pieces that made the models look like goddesses. I totally wanted to add these pieces to my closet.
The L’uomo Strano pieces were absolutely breathtaking. While it was technically menswear, the pieces were gender neutral. The leather pieces were gorgeous and looked incredibly well made.
The Tala Nehlawi runway was fabulous. I loved her use of natural and nude colours. All the models had gold in their hair which really added to the looks – I wish I would pull it off too!
House of Etiquette closed the second show. I have never in my life seen latex used in such an innovative and beautiful way. The pieces were magnificent and a great way to close.
