There are some members of the fashion public who don’t believe that a home furnishings and decor company should be allowed a spot on the runway. There are some who belive they just don’t belong, I wonder if these people have eyes. Say what you want the Korhani Home runway show is one of the most entertaining and well produced shows every season, and I’ve been lucky enough to see each collection since their first in person. This season I’ve already said I couldn’t make it but again I went through the pics and as expected the Korhani Home collection was Gorgeous!
Please believe that these pieces that the models are wearing are made of carpet but damnit if I wouldn’t rock one of those pieces and be like “and what!” “I dare you to tell me I don’t look A MAY ZING!” LOL! I would too! Pics are below!

If you have been following my blog and reading the coverage from the past seasons you will know that Korhani is a home furnishing company that has been presenting at Toronto Fashion Week for the last few seasons. To their credit they have been out doing some of the conventional designers. Specifically in their execution, and style of show that they present. As such they have quickly become a must-see show.
This season was no different, except that they had the daunting task of being the show that opened Fashion Week. Now having seen the previous two seasons from Kristen Korhani I knew that this show would be unique, that there would be as much show as there would be fashion and there would be a surprise; I was not disappointed.
The Korhani home collection took us around the world and back again. Their opening section featured Oriental inspired looks from the hair and make-up to the styling; imagine a carpet kimono. Who but Korhani could do that? We were taken to Mongolia with a quick stop in Russia before we were dropped smack dab in the middle of London at the height of its punk revolution. I know I’m telling you what happened but all of this was done with carpet if you can believe it. Finally we landed in Venice at a masquerade ball where the tapestries were not hung on a wall but were worn by the guests. The show was marvelous. Inventive and as exquiste in the design and detail as I expected. Oh and the models coming down the runway with the pot belly piglets didn’t hurt either..that was the surprise.
