The Fashion Design Council of Canada (FDCC) hosed its thirteenth season of L’Oréal Fashion Week Fall Collections recently in Toronto.

‘PEACE’ was our fashion week tagline”, says Robin Kay, President of the Fashion Design Council of Canada.

Mackage
How can anyone not like Mackage coats? They’re gorgeous.

The show was visually entertaining, and there were so many beautiful coats. I have a 3 year old Mackage leather jacket that just gets better with time. I could have watched the clothes all night. But perhaps there were too many coats on display as the audience was visibly restless as time went on. Apart from that, I thought the show was well organized, from guest list to seating, to styling, and accessories.

Holt Renfrew Media Cocktail

We were pleasantly surprised to receive an invitation to Holt Renfrew’s Media Cocktail party. So what happened at the exclusive event? Networking, networking, networking. Plenty of tasty hors d’oeuvres, eye candy and pleasant conversation.

L’Oréal Fashion Week Review:
Andy The-Anh

Smoke machines at a fashion show?
The idea was good in theory, and fit with his heavy-metal inspired designs and show music, but there was so much smoke, you couldn’t see the first few outfits. I quickly lost interest therereafter.

David Dixon
My favorite designer by far. However his show was disorganized this season. There were no announcements that David’s show was not in the main runway room, but instead in the very cold outdoor courtyard. There was a huge bonfire and front row seats were covered with Hudson’s Bay blankets. Other standing guests and media were offered blankets as an after thought. The show was unusual, but clever. The clothing fabulous. See the video here.

An awesome leather presentation if that is what you are into. beasutiful cuts and design. The show just started without a sliver of announcement though. I have no idea why Fashion Week organizers haven’t learned to manage guest lists and traffic flow after 13 seasons. Would it kill them to have a PA system at door entrances and in the media lounge? I nearly missed this show.

Joeffer Caoc
Joeffer’s shows are templates for consistency. He knows his target market and caters to that woman. Fit, timing, music, and accessories were perfect.

Joe Fresh Style
J. Fresh offers well-made, basic styles for affordable prices.

GSUS
Young, flashy, energetic clothes. Great show, good looking models, nice clothes (but less than conservative). See the video here.
