Fashion Art Toronto 2010

Last week, I attended a bunch of amazing fashion shows at Toronto's alternative fashion week, Fashion Art Toronto (FAT) 2010. FAT seamlessly merges fashion, music, photography, video and art over the course of a fabulous four day extravaganza.

I saw a diverse range of spectacular runway fashion shows, live music performances, photo exhibits, art installations and video screenings. The energy, creativty and artistry found at this alternative art celebration is truly phenomenal and awe inspiring. Check out my videos below to see some of my favourite FAT '10 moments - enjoy!

Designers as Disney Characters

This is a recent editorial spread from the Spain edition of Elle and it features a bunch of the fashion world's top designers interpreted as Disney characters. My favourites are definitely the Big Bad Wolf as Karl Lagerfeld and one of the Ducks as John Galliano. So cute and clever - LOVE it!!!

Karl Lagerfeld Does Coca-Cola

The Kaiser of fashion has collaborated with soft drink giant Coca-Cola and his signature and trademark silhouette grace a limited edition run of Coca-Cola Light bottles. This is definitely going to be a coveted collectible by fashionistas and cool hunters alike. Karl Lagerfeld the brand is such a huge force to be reckoned with on so many different levels and it only continues to broaden its imprint on popular culture.

Raf Simons Fall/Winter 2010 Footwear

This is a peek at some of the pieces from Raf Simon's Fall/Winter 2010 footwear collection. As you may know, I'm a HUGE Raf Simons fan and I'm totally LOVING everything from this collection so far. He never ceases to WOW me with his fashion forward vision and minimal aesthetic. My favourites (if you haven't already guessed;-) are definitely the boots with the cut out component. Modern, sexy, stylish and chic - Raf Simons has definitely pushed the envelope again and taken avante-garde menswear to a new level.

Ezra Constantine Fall/Winter 2010

Ezra Constantine Fall/Winter 2010, told the story of a military inspired urban warrior complete with bruised make-up and veteran swagger. The various looks that walked down the runway showed a cohesive and highly wearable collection with a dark muted colour palette of black, grey and navy blue, which kept the collection elegant and refined.

Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong are definitely the kings of drapery and each piece that they applied this volume inducing technique to possessed high fashion interest and WOW factor. Exaggerated hooded shirts, structured military-style jackets, color detailed jersey leggings, dramatic long shirts, slimming leather pants, a leather poncho, and an intricate wool cape were definitely some of the stand out pieces from this collection.

I’m not going to lie, I loved most of the pieces from this collection and I could easily envision a lot of these pieces easily dressed up or down and worn day to evening. This is the sophomore collection from Ezra Constantine, but you wouldn’t be able to deduce this fact due to the sophistication and overall fashion forward aesthetic of this collection. All in all, this collection proves that Ezra Constanine is clearly ready to do battle with the fashion world’s menswear heavy hitters.
