DSC_0192 I absolutely loved the location of the presentation and the light fixtures.

On Monday night I attended the Fall Winter 2015 media preview for The Collections‘ Made In Canada roster of designers, who will later show their complete collections during the World Mastercard Fashion Week here in Toronto. Clad in a few of my current favourites—a vintage suede coat, a denim skirt, chunky Disco Stu shoes, and a black turtleneck—I felt ready to view some fresh talent and drink some free wine.

The six Canadian designers—111 by Parloque, Helder Diego, Triarchy, Mikael D, Klaxon Howl and Malorie Urbanovitch—selected one ensemble each to present to members of the media, and right away I had a clear favourite. Having been a long time fan of Parloque, I wasn’t surprised. Head designer of 111 and owner of Parloque, Amrita Gill, has always had an eye for bold design and unisex streetwear. Parloque is one of the only boutiques in Toronto that carries local and international designs by KYE, Willis Chan, Soulland, and SAMO (formerly Malmo London). So I was quite pleased to see that she designs her own line as well. Everything from the dramatic black coat, to the grey hair and intricate eye makeup, to those perfect white heels by KYE worked. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the collections look like in a few weeks! Stay tuned.

I’m wearing vintage suede coat and bambo bag from Odd Finds General Store, denim skirt from H&M Trend, turtleneck by Uniqlo, and chunky derbies by Zara.
