Before designers show off their wares on the runways of Fashion Week, they channel their inspiration and sketch their creations. For the spring 2014 shows, which kick off Thursday at Lincoln Center and other locales around New York City, those inspirations ranged from Hollywood glamour queens to ancient tribes to modern art. Here’s a peek at some of those fashionable inspirations (in the designers’ own words). — By Julie Gordon, amNew York

Toronto runway highlights and trends at World MasterCard Fashion Week as well as “renegade” fashion shows that happened in March. (QMI AGENCY) The makeup and hair looks throughout Toronto Fashion Week ran the gamut from edgy and goth-inspired to minimal and androgynous to soft and sweet. Despite the variety, there were definite trends established amongst the gallery of shows.  While World MasterCard Fashion Week descended on Toronto, Business Review Canada has decided to take a look at the Canadian haute couture clothing companies that bring high fashion to the masses and even surprising styles of clothing such as jackets or yoga pants were some of the  featured new elements at the fashion shows.

Fashion Week “delivers”

Toronto Fashion Week: Joe Fresh delivers a slinky sixties sex kitten vibe: Before the big names light up David Pecaut Square at Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week later this week, it’s time for the new names to shine. Day 2 in Toronto was filled with strong fashion showings from the country’s most promising young up-starts, where labels from Toronto’s sister act Chloe Comme Parris and Montreal duo Martin Lim, among others, commanded the runway with their Toronto fall 2012 fashion week collections ‘Ain’t nobody dope as me, I’m just so fresh and so clean’ – so sang Atlanta hip-hoppers Outkast on a record spun by a rather exuberant DJ before the packed Joe Fresh fashion show on Wednesday evening. Its buzz grows every season, so Joe Mimran’s line of grocery-store couture clothing line had a lot to live up to. Luckily, the fashion week show, spurred by a slinky sixties sex kitten vibe, delivered something, yes, fresh in Toronto this time. – – ©ourtesy of Tiyana grulovic @ theglobeandmail.com

collections – again held in the city’s David Pecaut Square – started out with a bang, or rather, a tap. A jovial tap dancer kicked off Holt Renfrew’s biannual fashion week showcase Continue reading
