|FAT| Fashion Art Toronto – Day 5

Day 5 of |FAT| Fashion Art Toronto, themed Haute Culture, was a study in monochrome, pastels and minimal black and white.

Fiona X. Sun used shape and shadows to give texture to her all white line. Lushyne’s black leather look fitted coats and floor length skirts shone with subtle gold and red hues, and Oscar Mendoza followed with black and shear lace. Iskon Mode kept us warm with winter chic. The sweater dresses were irresistible!

Amongst the neutral tones, two designers stood out. Du Laree by Andy Jones painted the runway with fiery tones, an effect that was further heightened by the movement of the fluttering fabric.

The final collection of the night, by Marie Copps, sparkled brightly with lush rainbow colours, a perfect way to end this year’s epic show!

Looking back on |FAT| Fashion Art Toronto 2016, the sense of inclusivity, support and positivity stood out. The crowd and the runway were full of people of all sizes, shapes, backgrounds, ages and gender identities. Overall there was a sense of community where everyone everyone was welcomed, everyone was encouraged, and most of all, everyone was fashionable!

2 – Display at the entrance to the venue
3 – Crowds looking on
4 – Performance by artist Miguel
5 – Traditional Native dance before Lesley Hampton’s collection
