#TFW: David Dixon Fall Winter 2016

David Dixon brought the strength and power of women and fashion to the runway at Toronto Fashion Week by designing a collection that woman will be proud to stand strong wearing. The Collection was dedicated to all the women who have been touched by ovarian cancer creating a strong message on the runway through the beauty and power that fashion brings.

Pairing black and white creates a strong statement when blocked together and this collection brought out the day to day strength and courage of women. From feminine flare to sophisticated structure the collection brought a powerful feel as each piece hit the runway.

#TFW: UNTTLD Fall Winter 2016

Regardless what season we are in black is always in style and UNTTLD proves this season after season. Fall Winter 2016 was no different with a collection that was filled with sheer black fabrics that flowed down the runway.

The collection brought a mysterious feel to the runway as it filled the room with smoke making the models look like they were floating down the runway. From glamour to fur and sheer to mesh each piece was thoughtfully styled including pieces that can be worn to different gatherings, holiday parties or anywhere you plan on having all eyes on you.

#SEEXPERIENCES: REDKEN Ready at WMCFW S/S 2016

Getting the full treatment backstage is always a great way to end the week and we’re reminiscing on all the wonderful things we experienced last week both on and off the runway.

I always love spending my time backstage season after season, it’s where all the beauty happens from #BornWithIt with MAYBELLINE to #REDKENready with REDKEN you’ll always leave looking your absolute finest!

This season I had the pleasure of getting REDKEN ready with two of Toronto’s REDKEN stylists, glaming me up with the look from Rachel Sin’s Runway Show.
