Each season, The Shows invite a handful of high-profile Canadian designers (many of whom now show in New York, London and Paris) to preview their collections in the days leading to Toronto Fashion Week. We’re posting full galleries from the buzziest runways. Here’s what trendsetters will be wearing in fall 2013.
IN A SENTENCE
Laing lives in Toronto, but has shown his line, aimed equally at young women and their mothers, at New York Fashion Week since 2006.
Since Laing and his partner Frank Griggs are both locals his show is always well populated by friends. Last night’s crowd included artists (John Caffrey of Kids on TV, singer Gentlemen Reg), shop owners (Lola Bakerman of LAB Consignment, Jackie O’Brien of Jonathan and Olivia), and fashion industry mainstays (makeup artist Robert Weir, Holt Renfrew’s Moira Wright and stylist Corey Ng).
