Flowers are having a fashion moment. The Spring/Summer 2013 runways were filled with cutesy florals to ’60s-inspired blossoms. From clothing to accessories, the power of the flower is growing and too hard to ignore. This season you’re in good hands – flowers ranged from graphic to sweet to edgy, so they can be fused seamlessly into any wardrobe.
Trendsetters and style icons can all be seen donning florals, whether casual or dressy. Who could forget Lucy Liu’s Golden Globes gown by Carolina Herrera or Sienna Miller’s Erdem dress?
Simply add a floral pin or go all out and dress up in full botanical garden.

The Peacock Parade is adding two more awesome lines to its roster. Allow me to introduce Gentle Fawn and Shae NY. Starting tomorrow at 11am, The Peacock Parade will offer Gentle Fawn and Shae NY at a fraction of the retail cost. If these lines haven’t yet reached your radar, here’s a little background information on your new favourite brands.
Daniel and Carla Hogg launched Gentle Fawn 10 years ago. They wanted to create a line that was feminine, fun and easy-to-wear. Their modern collections are often filled with prints and patterns that are oh-so charming. Lea Michele and Anna Kendrick have been spotted wearing them!
Shae NY is a trendy New York-based line specializing in knitwear. Creative director Tony Smith, along with designer Amber Hofmann create a twist on the sweater. Using high-quality fabrics and imaginative designs, Shae NY is a label to watch.
Toronto Fashion Week has come to a close. And while everyone is gladly anticipating spring’s arrival, fall 2013 is still on a lot of minds. No matter which collection was your favourite or what kind of style you have, the week was filled with styles that would suit the pickiest of us all. Rock ‘n’ roll chic from Rudsak, Hollywood-glam from Vawk and oh-so-trendy looks from Caitlin Power sum up the last portion of Toronto Fashion Week.
Which Canadian designer had you drooling? Let us know.
The last few days of World MasterCard Fashion Week aka Toronto Fashion Week have been seen many a good look. From black and whites via Joe Fresh and sleek motifs care of Sid Neigum, fall is packed with drool-worthy style. Canadian designers keep pushing themselves to improve quality and technique and man, it shows.
We hope that you’re all feeling as patriotic as we are – so go ahead and wearing something Canadian. Don’t forget to check out The Peacock Parade for a sale on Juma scarves, a pre-sale for Aime and mixed Canadiana designer sale!
