A kaleidoscope of shapes and colours was what Joseph Ribkoff‘s new collection brought to us— his graphic prints in shades of black and white with random pops of colour unexpectedly appearing. His classic silhouettes are the timeless fashion pieces that we all want to invest in. The unexpected use of colour amoung the geometric patterns as well as the pairing of textures made these pieces stand out as more than just office wear . This office appropriate line could easily transition to an after-work party making these pieces very versatile.
Naike’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection provided a less is more vibe. A simple A-line silhouette was evident throughout the entire collection a minimalistic look that awed many with the simplicity of the pieces. The coats were the showcase of this year Naike’s line.
Jana & Emilia’s Fall Winter 2014 collection it seem like designing a collection that includes both menswear and womenswear is a simple task task. The runway was filled with a multi-facet of textures, patterns and colours. The structured jackets seemed to dominate the later part of their show, adding a more futuristic look to the line.
The attention to detail and varied patterns and textures will make the necessity of wearing a coat almost bearable next winter. ( The surprise appearance of several Ottawa Celebrities added and interesting dimension to this collection)
Ottawa Fashion Week from a stylist point of view was a resounding success, however it was disappointing to see the attendance. I expected a sold out show but unfortunately that did not happen. Ottawa Fashionistas sit up and take notice, this is a fashion show not to be missed. Canadian designers are ranked amoung the top designers in the world and they are at your backdoor. It is time to show your Canadian Pride
