Evan Biddell’s fall collection creates a scene

After opening his new Ossington store, Oz Studio Boutique, Evan Biddell was in full scenester mode Tuesday night with his runway show, Prehistory. Such Toronto notables as Keshia Chante (who made an appearance in a video prior to the show), Jian Ghomeshi, Adrian Mainella and Stacey McKenzie all came out to show support.

We’d love to say the most exciting part of the evening was before the show, when Robin Kay sauntered down the runway and personally handed us Lagerfeld-style hand fans, but Biddell’s collection stole the spotlight. Models trotted out in sunglasses fit for Daft Punk or Robocop, wearing leggings with Warhol-esque prints. Though it’s hard to imagine some of the pieces off the runway, the clothes—like oversized hoods in animal prints and ballooning jodhpur pants—are for the kind of gal who socializes at The Social. And so it was fitting that the evening ended with an after party (where else?) on Ossington, at Böhmer. It was a tame evening—after all, it was only Tuesday, and there’s plenty more to see today.
