Canadian design duo Dean and Dan Caten of Italian-based fashion label DSqaured2 are killing it. They’re the recent recipients of two inaugural Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards (for International Designer of the Year and Outstanding Achievement) and they recently showed their Fall 2014 collection in Milan, flaunting glam feathers, short skirts and mod 1960s looks. They also have an adorable penchant for dressing alike—a habit that clearly stems from childhood. We wouldn’t oppose a future kidswear line.
Most people would be perfectly content if Sir Elton John and his husband David Furnish were the only stars at this year’s Fashion Cares event, but the party is getting splashier: organizers have announced that both Janelle Monáe and the Scissor Sisters will be performing at the event at the Sony Centre, and that the recently richer Linda Evangelista will play co-host with designers Dean and Dan Caten. As far as Toronto fashion parties go, this is going to be one of the big ones (come on, Elton John and Linda Evangelista?).
