LGFW: Day One

Last night was the official opening of LGFW, an event I’ve wanted to attend since I turned 19, but the timing of the shows meant I was always preoccupied with mid terms and assignments – until now! {Full-time job +1, university 0} And yes, that’s a running tally in my head! The night opened with a speeches from FDCC president Robin Kay and title sponsor LG fashion week, both of which spoke to the bold manner in which Canadian designers take on the world of fashion. “Bold without apology” were the exact words said, and the night certainly delivered on the promise. Here are some of my favourite looks.

 While all three runway shows had their standout moments: Denis Gagnon’s novelty print, Smythe’s sorbet orange blazer, lala berlin’s footwear – Arthur Mendonca’s show was by far the highlight of my evening. When I received the press release and read ‘Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra’ as the theme, I started thinking of typical 60’s trends: space age metallics, contrasting colours, brightly coloured prints. And while Mendoca’s collection had all that, it felt very fresh. Save for the turquoise eye shadow and clearly Cleopatra accessories (which were modern in their own right), the show felt inspired not just a reproduction of decade trademarks in honour of the late actress.
