I had the opportunity to attend a couple of shows on Tuesday at LG Fashion Week in Toronto. It was a last-minute affair for me, but I grabbed my fabulous friend Mark, threw an outfit and face together and off we went.
I had never been to Fashion Week before and I was in heaven with all the beautiful and eclectic people that were in attendance. I was in people-watching overload! With a glass of vino in hand, I grabbed my spot in the VIP FDCC line to get into the Joe Fresh Style show.
Joe Fresh Style showed a gorgeous collection of neutral tones with pops of bright orange, jade and blue. Classic cuts paired with splashes of texture were a common theme. I wanted the orange wool coat the moment I laid eyes on it.
The hair was simple. Imperfectly straight and with a center part, it looked effortlessly beautiful. The makeup was minimalist chic. Fresh, semi-matte skin, natural yet groomed brows, sheer washes of gold on the lids and bronzed skin were the perfect complement to the collection.
The show was a full house and an absolute success! I still can’t believe that the clothes are so chic AND affordable. Amazing.
After the first show ended, I lined up immediately for the last show (and the most anticipated) of the night – Bustle. Running a fashionably forty minutes late, I was happy to finally get to my seat and enjoy.
The show started with a black & white video intro of a beautiful man driving to a northern lodge and dog sledding which transitioned into him heading onto the runway to start the show. Full of exceptionally handsome male models, I was impressed with the sexy yet rugged theme of the collection. The oh-so-Canadian medley of tailored pieces paired with casual chic were infused with plaid jackets, relaxed fit pants and knits. Models donned axes, snifters of brandy and posed with a sled at the foot of the runway to tie into the ski-lodge theme. It was certainly MORE than worth the wait!
What a fabulous way to spend a normally mundane Tuesday. I can’t wait for the next LG Fashion Week. I’m officially addicted! Look out!
