The little black dress, classic pumps and a neutral trench coat are all wardrobe staples; every woman needs these pieces in her closet. As necessary as they are, eclectic, conversation-starting items are just as important. Sometimes a little kitsch can go a long way in the fashion world. Unique is always in.
Who wouldn’t stop to ask you about a pair of butterfly-inspired sunglasses or an adorable owl pendant? Jazzing up an outfit with a seemingly silly piece will show off your fun, adventurous side. Take a look at Rihanna’s “FEAR” scarf from Paris Fashion Week a few weeks ago…she is the poster girl for wild and free fashion.
There’s no need to wear a Kermit the Frog dress like Lady Gaga, but bold, unique accessories are essential for the fashion lover. Check out the pieces available right now on The Peacock Parade.
Day 4 of World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto has come to a close and only one day remains. The collections showcased so far have stayed consistently strong. Canadian designers are pushing themselves to get creative, take note of trends and offer top quality.
Heavy hitters like Joe Fresh and Pink Tartan gave us their classic preppy-with-an-edge styles.
David Dixon displayed his knack for evening and occasion wear. Soft hues and cascading peplums dominated his collection.
Designers like Melissa Nepton and Mackage offered lots o’ leather. Mackage offered modern boho looks, reminiscent of Ralph Lauren, while Melissa Nepton played with mixed fabrics.
With the kick off of World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto, Canada looks inwards at what’s in store of Fall/Winter 2014. There’s no denying that New York, Paris, London and Milan are sartorial pillars and fundamentally set the tone for international fashion, but there’s something special about praising local talent. And believe me, there’s much to praise. It’s necessary for Canada to punch above its weight and work hard in the fashion sphere. The good news is, if last night is any indication, then we’re well on our way.
Aside from ever-present shades of black, Vawk, Beaufille, Mikhael Kale, Line Knitwear and Sid Neigum featured plenty of bright colours. Line Knitwear’s use of magenta was eye-catching and Beaufille’s burgundy pieces were highly on trend.
To celebrate World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto and Canadian fashion in general, The Peacock Parade will be offering Canadian designer sales this week.
