Toronto Fasion Week - Day 3

This is a week late but I haven’t had the time to compose anything until now…

Toronto Fashion Week – Day 3, Andy The-Anh F/W 2009.

10 minutes to the show, Diana and I make our way over to the already packed runway tent. Fashion editors, models, musicians and designers are everywhere and yet it was model and panel judge (for Canada’s Next Top Model), Stacey Mackenzie that got all the cheers when she strutted in. Interesting…

The lights turn off and the crowd scrambles to find their seats. The music starts and the first models walk onto the runway. Two other models walk out of the front to the beat of the urban music. Another model struts in from the end of the catwalk meeting the two other models in the middle. The whole display reminds me of elegant animals proudly displaying themselves in the jungle.

The overall Andy The-Anh’s F/W 09 collection was breathtaking. He showed a lot of beautifully tailored feminine dresses, skirts, coats and jumpsuits. He did his own take on jeweled tights, which I thought were really elegant, paired with a simple belted wool sheath. He showed ruffles, pleats, high waisted pants and skirts and exposed zippers on half the garments. (Thank goodness they’re still going strong otherwise I’d have to get rid of some clothes!) The show started with neutral golds, browns and blacks, perfect for the fall and ended with a splash of jewel toned colors. What a refreshing close to such a beautiful show.
