Toronto's LG Fashion Week Fall 2011 Collections Have Arrived!

After New York, Paris, London and Milan, Canada's biggest celebration of fashion has arrived! That's right ladies and gentlemen, LG Fashion Week is here and off to a fashionable start. After taking a sneak peek at the latest collections, I must say that this is my favourite Toronto fashion week thus far. The collections look much more cohesive and the tailoring is incredible with a dose of some amazing styling.

Take a look below and be inspired one of my favourite looks from LG Fashion Week so far:

 Greta Constantine

Fan favourites and the brains behind the seams, Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong, presented a nomadic collection filled with velvety textures, rich tones of forest green, royal purple and deep blue, obi belts and pompoms brooches to boot. Cinched waists complemented Japanese kimono-style sleeves while draped dresses accessorized with soft knit jersey scarves brought out the relaxed downtown girl in all of us.

My favourites include a long purple (so far the colour of LG Fashion Week) v-neck gown worn with an oversized grey sweater with a fur trimmed collar (far left photo). This look embodies that glamozon look of the seventies that is so on trend this spring with a carefree bohemia vibe. This look also shows you that it is ok, make that very ok, to wear a shorter jacket with a longer gown. How modern.

The middle look is a shiny slightly pleated velvet cape in a deep forest green with a large fur grey scarf reminiscent of a classic middle-aged fairytale. I could just see this look on a young woman making her way through the forest on a cold evening except in modern times, you would be wearing it making your way through the city after a fabulous night on the town.

The third look on the far right, shows you how to add some flair to a thick and cozy cold weather dress. In deep blue this above the knee dress is adorned with a multi-coloured pompom brooch and thick obi belt. Add an oversized bag and you are ready to run your errands on a cold autumn day!

Kudos to Kirk and Stephen on a cohesive and inspiring collection this season!
