Last year, I was fortunate enough to watch the Hilary MacMillian show as my first fashion week experience. This year, I went with my best friend, Carolina (who you should all know) and we ended up watching two shows: Bustle and UNTTLD. Both shows had their pros and cons but taking quality photos on a DSLR is too hard when you’re not aware of the visuals and lighting arrangement beforehand. There will be a montage posted on my Youtube channel so you can get a better look there!
Continuing, Bustle was the first show we saw and it was women’s, men’s and children’s clothing. Most of it was pattern mixing which I have been very into lately. Earlier this year I started to become a fan of pattern mixing! Also, the little kids walking down the runway were absolutely adorable. I couldn’t handle it.
To be completely honest with you, I didn’t take any photos of the UNTTLD show but I had a really good reason. I was too busy fangirling and filming footage of Jean Paul Gaultier. He came to Toronto Fashion Week to give a talk and ended up staying for Day 2 to watch some of the shows. Be on the look out for his cameo in my montage when it’s posted on Youtube! Anyways, to sum up UNTTLD, the designers went for a black and white theme. I definitely loved that it matched my outfit. The strongest trend that showed up was stripes though. I’ve always been a lover for stripes. I will admit that I kept getting fashionable mime vibes whenever I saw a black and white striped outfit during UNTTLD. There were elements I love from all of the pieces but what I noticed the most was that all the detailing was taking place on the shoulders and arm adn very simple cuts in the front.
Now onto my outfit! Fashion week is your time to think outside the box, be bold/do something you don’t normally do. Or you can stick to your style, there’s no rules about the attire. I feel like fashion week is the best time to experiment with your look. Last year, I went for a very Blair Waldorf inspired look and it luckily went with the vibe of the show I watched. This year, it ended up happening again where I ended up matching the show (to me it’s a little accomplishment, I don’t know why). For this look, I went different from what I normally wear which is a bodysuit that I got from SheIn but also, it’s one shoulder; not just any one shoulder, but a huge ruffled one that is sure to stand out among the crowd.
I wanted to go simple with the ensemble so I paired the bodysuit with simple dress pants, my go-to heels and my favourite accessory: a cabby hat. Also, since fall is approaching, it is cabby hat season and you will be seeing this hat on repeat until I buy another one.
