Matthew Gallagher brought a soft and detailed look to the runway on day one of World MasterCard Fashion Week SS16 and once again he keeps us wanting more and more for the seasons to come by incorporating a soft look with a wide range of details in each piece. From woven ribbon to delicate pleats the collection is exactly what every women needs to feel beautiful in Spring/Summer 2016.
The collection is filled with beautiful colours from pastels to hints of neons, making it easy to forget about the ever so popular black (especially if you’re like me) with all these luxurious colour combos.

The end of Fashion Week always seems to be bitter sweet for me, whether it’s missing the people, the hustle or simply just having my days filled with everything fashion and beauty, there has yet to be a season that I don’t miss. Looking back on last week we saw many shows, hair styles, nail designs and makeup looks that will have us begging for fall/winter 2015, but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves just yet, we still have spring/summer to enjoy.
Here’s a look back on what we loved most during World MasterCard Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015, from the runway to backstage we are excited to share with you exactly what we were chatting about last week.
REDKEN Canada showed us many different hair looks throughout the week, but there was one common trend that we saw popping up in many of the shows, braids. This Fall/Winter 2015 is all about the braids and who doesn’t love a good braid, they are easy to do and always look great both on and off the runway. I got a chance to have one of REDKENS elite hair stylists recreate the braid look from David Dixon’s runway show, it looked great and is a look that’s it easy to do at home.
MAYBELLINE Canada always surprises us every season with new make up trends and products that are absolute must try’s. This season it was all about that perfect highlight using Face Studio Master Prime, the soft pink created a natural and flawless glow that made each model simply shimmer with beauty. The Mikhael Kale beauty look was all the rave with the stunning pop of colour in the inner corners of the eye using the Colour Sensational Vivids Lip Colour, making it a great way to get even more use out of your everyday favourite products.
Be sure to let us know your faviorite looks, trends and styles from the Fall/Winter 2015 World MasterCard Fashion Week shows using #StyleEmpire #StyleEmpireXWMCFW @StyleEmpireMag @Stylempire.

There’s no better combination than leather and fur, now add some wool and it’s simply stunning. Rudsak brought an edgy look to the runway with a collection inspired by the worlds most beautiful cities. The collection was exactly what any fashion lover wants to wear while strutting their way down the streets of their favourite cities.
Rudsak is always a show we look most forward to, because let’s face it, as Canadians we need to keep warm and this is the perfect way to do so. The detailing in each piece was exactly what takes your average winter coat up a level making you feel better about having to hid your outfit. Rudsak always brings leather detailing into their pieces in a way that has you following each piece as it goes on by. From shoulder patches to elbow patches and full sleeves to half sleeves, the leather detailing in each piece keeps Rudsak lovers coming back season after season.
As Canadians we simply can’t go a winter without keeping warm with fur weather it is a full coat or fur detailing, it’s always the best way to stay warm and cozy day after day. Rudsak’s fur detailing is always eye-catching with their iconic hoods and stunning handbags it was a great way to end day four of World MasterCard Fashion Week.

Few designers at World Mastercard Fashion Week exemplify the same dedication to shaping Canadian fashion that’s evident in through the legacy of David Dixon. After twenty years in the business, Dixon has risen to the top of the Canadian fashion industry; even bringing the likes of Toronto’s mayor John Tory to line the runway for a glimpse at his newest creations. The debut of Dixon’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection is the ultimate testament to this fact to his dedication. Tuesday evening marked his 20th year in the industry marking this collection a landmark 40th.
The collection is as youthful and current as ever, with striking accessories like thick chokers made of beads and chains, rings that link with wrist cuffs while cascading chains over the hands, and a nod to gothic 90s style with each model sporting pitch black nail polish. Cage sandal shoes provided a nice, light balance to the heavy structuring characteristic of the collection’s garments: like the bold shoulder created by free flying fur shawls or the dramatic leather waist-pinching panels. Strong brows and flushed red lips brought even more power to the overall energy of the femme fatale vibe of the collection. It was the perfect compliment to a Fall/Winter line for the bold and courageous woman with a flair for the fashion-dramatic, but on her own terms.
