Toronto Fashion Week lives up to ‘fabulous’ tagline

1ebcb_gagnonmain102508 Toronto Fashion Week lives up to fabulous taglineCanadian designers were the toast of Toronto yesterday for L’Oréal Fashion Week’s finale.  Lucian Matis, Afshin Feiz and Denis Gagnon secured the coveted Friday evening timeslots, reminding the audience of the sheer strength of Canada’s artistic talent.

The crowd gasped in unison as Matis’ first number graced the runway.  The loosely draped silk dress with floral overlay and jewel-incrusted neckline set the tone for the show.  Matis repeated the flower print for several dresses and used a red silk for high waisted pants, an evening gown and a blouse emblazoned with a Warhol-style illustration.

Matis’ models wore turban-inspired headdress that added a dramatic feel to his designs.  His final number, a white wig and lavender tulle dress with a fitted bodice and white leggings, was reminiscent of Marie-Antoinette.
