One of the most recognized names and faces in Canadian Fashion would have to be Denis Gagnon. With his signature specs, and artistically innovated design, landing him global respect. This Spring collection brought the party with local celebrities strutting alongside models. Familiar faces Yso, Mado, Tracey Trash( who just landed her first all night act on Thursday), Antonio Bavaro, Azamit, Yso, Fritz and Vyara and others. The makeup was very 1980s/Art deco/Eqyptian goddesses mixing 1990s inspired sportswear with resort ease, some more sculpted pieces and fitted dresses but mainly a gender neutral collection with a lot of ease. Possibly starting a trend with the sequins headpieces which playfully remind me of the leather bangs that made it on the catwalk last season. The energy in the room was explosive, with cheers, and praise that could leave Ms. Anna even cracking face. Unfortunetly, all of the attention may have distracted patrons from viewing the beautiful clothes and I am still not yet on board with the jeremy scott adidas double white stripe down the sides which seem to be rippling throughout our own but as well as other international fashion weeks. Favorites would include geometric infused bodice, leather shorts, Connie Lingua, Denis signature jog, horizontal stripes, grey sweatshirt sleeveless jacket, body suits and the screened photo prints. A wonderful contagious show and another great collection!
