Toronto Fashion Week spring 2019 has returned to Yorkville Village, celebrating the best of Canadian fashion, art and culture. In collaboration with RE\SET, Canada’s leading fashion event is showcasing the Spring/Summer 2019 collections from the country’s best and buzziest designers from September 4 to 6. We’ve been hanging out at The Lane (you can also find us backstage) to give you daily recaps of the best designer presentations. Here, we recap our favourite collections from day three. Swipe through the galleries to see all the looks!
Daniel Gregory Natale
Proving there is no such thing as too much layering, Daniel Gregory Natale’s latest collection features vintage-looking, oversized garments and crotcheted toppers. And although the colder months are just around the corner, this collection has us excited for next year’s transitional phase between winter and spring.
Best known for their contemporary menswear, WIL Studios (short for What I Love) went in a different direction for their latest collection. Think Los Angeles skater boy at the country club. Walking down the garden runway in socks and sandals, models rocked bright windbreakers, collard shirts, small crossbody bags and totes.
Inspired by the phenomenon of metamorphosis, Pedram Karimi transformed the RE\SET SHOWROOM into a maze “cocoon”. “Don’t crush the caterpillars,” says Karimi. The collection features details of drapey nude chiffon and lace. Closing the show, two models walked down the runway holding two neon butterflies.
