On the Canadian Catwalk

On the Canadian Catwalk

The old clichés of Canadian fashion consisting of down parkas and thermal underwear have been reconstructed on the runways of Toronto this week.

At North America’s second largest fashion event, the World Mastercard Fashion Week held in Toronto, the Canadian catwalk for the Autumn/Winter 2012 collections came alive to void those clichés.

Colorful wool coats were out on display alongside sleeveless geometric block print shirts, a testament to the layers needed to survive the Canadian cold.

Headliner Korhani Home took it one step further, pairing exuberant hand-detailed robes accompanied by this season’s hottest accessory: a miniature pig.

The results on the runway were stark reminders that fashion and art are not inseparable.
“(Fashion) is an industry that’s an art form,” said designer D’Arcy Moses at a fundraiser celebrating the fusion of art and fashion in Toronto.
And stylist Talia Brown agreed, as she explains in the video clip below.
