Fashion Week in Toronto
LG Fashion Week SS’12: Day 3
Inside, the LG tents were bustling with positive energy all day, despite the glum weather outside. Early shows included Robert Graham, Sid Neigum, Marie Saint Pierre, and Klaxon Howl. However, the majority of the day was quite quiet, which I guess was a result of busy work schedules of fashion week’s elite and the not-so nice weather.

Around 5 p.m, the guest lists expanded as more people filed in for Label, Korhani, Pink Tartan, and Joe Fresh.
The Label studio show was a collection of feminine pieces; very basic yet girly chic pieces for spring! It featured edgy necklaces and other chunky jewelry designed by Toronto’s own, Emily Woundenberg (below). Pink Tartan and Joe Fresh lit up the night with beaming neon’s against sharp white, creating a crisp contrast for next season. Both collections also had neutrals and classic tailoring as two of their main features.
Waiting in the mayhem for the Joe Fresh show to start, I introduced myself and spoke with Liz Trinnear of MuchMusic. She sported her classic bun and looked fabulous. As always, Joe Fresh was a fully packed show (some people were even crowded sitting on the stairs) with supermodel Yasmin Warsame taking the catwalk.
Another highlight of my night was meeting InFashion’s, Glen Baxter (above). I had noticed him from afar the past few days but actually had the chance to speak with him, which was amazing! Other attendees of the nights fashion shows were Toronto fashion reps: Melinda Shankar, Adrian Mainella, Randi Bergman, Tommy Ton, Stacey McKenzie, Fefe Dobson, Keisha Chante, Lisa Tant, Bernadette Mora, and Mosha Lundstrom.
Seeing turbans and headwraps on the models at the Attitude Jay Manuel and Laura Siegel shows, it got me thinking about this new “Turban” inspired headband trend. I recently bought myself one from American Apparel, and noticed two girls sporting one. It’s a unique trend, which can go with ultimately any outfit, not to mention how cute they look! Look for this style of headwear appear more often for the season Spring/Summer ’12.
