I am in love with Sunny Fong. Seriously. His Thursday night LGFW show under his label VAWK was a major hit and his Spring 2012 collection was to die for. Inspired by insects and architecture, his collection was full of movement, with tie dye prints and layers of nude and blush fabric. The“Butterfly” finale dress was exquisite, with delicate layers that fluttered with the models movements. Combine all this with Eddie Malta’s makeup, complete with custom eyelashes that suggested the antenna of an insect, and Eric Del Monoaco’s “insect wing” gold hairpiece, Fongs entire concept was well executed all the way down to the finest detail.

Bringing back ornament in design is what Lucian Matis’s SS2012 collectin was all about. In defiance of the famous manifesto, Ornament and Crime (an essay written in 1908 by Architect Adolf Loos, who in a single paper influenced thousands to get on the modernist band-wagon), Matis’s SS12 was all about imbellishment, volume and colour. Over-sized earrings and nude body suits with metallic palletes provided bold details to ruffly dresses and layers of tulle and chiffon. Though the highlight of the evening was sheer floor length dress embellished with red flowers, my personal fave was the cream ombre gown with a mille feuille detail.

Well, the heavy rain didn’t stop the fash pack from Toronto’s Fashion Week held downtown at David Pecaut Square. Among the usual heavy hitters of design husband and wife duo Joe Mimram and Kimberly Newport-Mimran , of Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan respectively, the most stand out shows so far this week ( to me, anyway) have been Chloe Comme Parris, MICHI and Juma.
Chloe Comme Parris showed a collection that was inspired by the Victorian era. The colour pallete was a well put together combination of creams, dark grayish-blues and bold prints. Long skirts, loose jumpers, and tailored pants were the chosen silhouette, and cropped jackets and shorts gave an updated twist, as did the bold cross-body accessories.
MICHI made her debut at LGFW this season with her lingerie inspired athletic wear, with sexy cut outs and panels of mesh in sports bras, tights and to-and from tunics.The bright blues, mustard, and magenta were a welcome hit of colour against a sea of black, and the finale outfit of white on white was a glam move for workout wear.
Juma, a favourite of mine, showed a kaleidoscope of colours and prints for their spring 2012 collection. Their signature slouchy silhouette showed off their black and white digital prints, while the saturated hues of pinks, yellows and browns stood out against a white silk background in wrap dresses, leggings, and flowing tunics . The pieces are works of art, and no doubt my Juma crush is about to become a more serious relationship.
