Soia & Kyo Fall/Winter 2015 World MasterCard Fashion Week

Soia & Kyo Fall/Winter 2015 World MasterCard Fashion Week

 

 

I was back in Toronto for World MasterCard Fashion Week on Thursday, and it was a pretty crazy day!

My friend and I started off at Her Majesty’s Pleasure for cocktails and pedicures, and then a dinner nearby at Cibo Wine bar. After the show at WMCFW we even hit up the official Grey Goose Afterparty at America Restaurant, but the main event was the 8:00pm Soia & Kyo show.

Soia & Kyo design jackets for both men and women, and prior to the show I searched the brand and found quite a few past designs I loved. I was excited for the show!

Everything that came down the runway was completely wearable. I feel like most shows at WMCFW have a few designs that you would love to wear, but would never have the opportunity to because they are just too couture. In this show everything looked easy and comfortable, even when the designs were more complicated and formal.

My first day of this year’s World MasterCard Fashion Week began on Tuesday, and I started it off with the David Dixon show. This year he is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his label, and the show was absolutely packed.

Everyone was buzzing around us with excitement for the show, and also trying to politely claw their way to the closest chair to the runway!

The show started with a look back at the designer’s two decades of work, followed by a video of David Dixon himself reflecting on his work and the industry he is a part of.

The show also started with a quote from Joan of Arc, who was one of the inspirations behind his line.

The models had MAJOR hair. Tousled braid’s that were loosely pulled together inspired me to get a hold of some mousse, and some voluminous hair extensions stat!

The model’s wore a black and while color palette, and most of the designs sported corsets and bustiers. Every outfit made me think that the woman wearing it looked empowered, and almost like a female warrior. It was fierce!

My favourite part was the capes and coats that came down the runway.

There was lots of leather and wool for this Fall/Winter 2015 line, and the show finished off with beautiful flowing dresses that really brought everyone’s camera’s out.

I loved the collection, and I thought it was a really wearable line for a gal heading to an event in Toronto. Some of it was maybe a bit more risqué for some, but I would love to wear any of it!

Here are a few of my favourite looks from the show!
