Jean Pierre Braganza Spring/Summer 2013~The Shows Toronto~Abstract Architecture


I always love discovering a new Canadian designer that I would wear and recommend.  I personally think that we as Canadians place far too much stock in International brands that don’t do anything to promote our industry our sense of fashion or the talent that we have right in our own back yard.  With more designers entering the market place who clearly have a vision and a voice it is important that Canadian media spotlights these designers so that the general population can find them and begin to purchase their collections.  I think Jean Pierre Braganza is one of those designers who needs to be showcased and shouted about.  Now I wasn’t at the actual show but my photographers were and I am soooo thankful because I got beautiful photos of this collection.  I knew that there was magic happening on the runway because this collection had the Blogeratti all a twitter on twitter.  Once I did get the photos I was equally as impressed with the collection as everybody else was.

The collection was print heavy, with no shortage of colour.  It also included jumpsuits my personal fav! One that you could pair with a blazer and head to the office and the other jumpsuit you’d pair with a killer shoe and head out for a night on the town.  The dresses in the collection all had abstract design elements including asymmetrical necklines and hems. Splashes of a print combined with solid fabrics made the designs way more interesting than if they had just the print alone or  just a solid colour.  Overall I loved the collection and thus far it is my favourite.
