Out of the Box coverage~~Danier and Greta Constantine Collaboration

 
 
 
 For Canadians what we wear over our clothes is just as important as what we wear under.  Considering that we have four seasons outer wear needs to be stylish.  Well look no further than the awesome collaboration between Canadian leather retailer Danier and fashion designers Greta Constantine.  The two have come together to release a capsule collection that will be available for Fall 2011.  The collection called Greta Constantine Skin will be available at select Danier locations nationwide.  Check out the press release below and photos from Greta Constantine’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection.
 
Press Release…
 

Design duo, Stephen Wong and Kirk Pickersgill announce an exciting collaboration between their signature line Greta Constantine and iconic Canadian retailer, DANIER. The capsule collection aptly tagged Greta Constantine SKIN, will see the self assured and modern Greta Constantine woman re-imagined for the DANIER brand and will be available at select DANIER locations Fall 2011.

 “Each season, DANIER is dedicated to offering our customers garments aimed to inspire their dressing. Aligning our brand with the captivating Canadian design label, Greta Constantine, has allowed us to further expand the scope of what that inspiration will be,” says Jennifer Steckel Elliott, VP Marketing, DANIER.

 The collection will be comprised of six looks primarily featuring second layer pieces, seamlessly offering a new and bold direction for the DANIER woman. “We wanted to develop pieces that exuded the ease and understated elegance of our Greta Constantine line,” explains Kirk Pickersgill. Stephen Wong adds, “Creating pieces for a broader demographic allowed us to consider what ‘affordable luxury’ truly entailed”.

 Since 1972, premier leather manufacturer and retailer, DANIER Leather Inc, has been providing its customers with the finest quality and workmanship at a price that affords exceptional value. For over a quarter century this iconic Canadian brand has grown to over 90 stores across Canada and into a household name.

LG Toronto Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 Day 1

Monday was the first day of fashion week here in Toronto and I have your scoop on what the venue looked like and a sneak peek of the shows from last night. 

So far my favourites are the looks from the Pink Tartan portion of the Holt Renfrew show and pretty much the entire IZMA collection.  If this is any indication of  what the other collections will be looking like this season then we will be experiencing some amazing  clothes!  A fashionista’s heaven!  Every major fashion personality was in the building last night and Jeanne Becker had the great pleasure of introducing Robin Kay who opened the evening with warm remarks. In any case check out the pictures below and check back here daily for your LG Toronto Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011  scoop!
