Versace for H&M Collection!

Says Donatella Versace of the collection; ‘The collection for H&M is the essence of Versace. For the collaboration we’ve brought back from the archives, as well as from more recent collections, some of the icons of Versace, such as the bright prints, the Greek key and daring cuts. I can’t wait to see how H&M’s wide audience will make these pieces their own.’Says Donatella Versace of the collection; ‘The collection for H&M is the essence of Versace.

Or, as H&M put it; ‘it’s full of the pieces that have made the house of Versace legendary’ There are enough sassy little dresses to keep the most dedicated of ravers going through the party season, as well as more than a few nifty separates to mix and match with. We’ve spotted some palm print trews that we think would go nicely with a number of our tops and shoes as well as a studded biker jacket, embellished miniskirts and a printed corset.  – – Read more about this !

At these events, designers parade their collections for retailers and try to make a splash in the fashion press.  But in the past five to 10 years, the numbers of cities and nations holding fashion weeks has burgeoned. There are more than 100 fashion weeks around the globe, from Islamabad to Rochester, N.Y.

Canada’s F/W in Toronto..HOT

Toronto Fashion Week trends: furries

TORONTO FASHION WEEK | SEE ALL No doubt, fur is one of the markers of class, prestige, sophistication and what some fashion magazines refer to ad nauseam as “luxe living.” We’ve seen Muppet furs on pretty much everyone on the Internet, and now it’s time for Toronto to show just how “CanadaCool” it is by throwing on a utility vest with gorilla chest hair peeking out. If that’s too subdued for all you tastemakers, try a fun belted number made from bleached dreadlocks. Here are but five of the furs we saw last night (we counted up to 12), proving that nothing beats the cold like a soft, lush fur, draped inelegantly, as though the wearer had actually shot a Himalayan snow monster, bought Manic Panic hair dye, and turned it into this winter’s must-have vest.
