The Korhani home rug runway is probably the most unique show that happens at LG Toronto Fashion Week. Considering that they are primarily a home decor company putting designs on the runway was probably not what they had originally thought the company would be doing. Last season was their first collection and they had several different sections to their show with influences from the 50’s that had almost a Flintstonian feel. This season they had a theme and it was a great one Alice in Wonderland complete with the white rabbit. It’s difficult to judge a show like this on its fashionable merits but it’s nothing if it’s not entertaining. I happen to think that fashion should be entertaining and a show like this is right up my alley. I didn’t actually get to attend this show but of course I made sure to get you guys the pictures.
I’ve been commenting that the collections coming out of Toronto Fashion week this season are fantastic. I mean, that may not surprise some of you but I expect to not like at least one or two shows that I attend. How could every single designer present a collection that is totally me? It sounds ludicrous even when I say it out loud. In any case that is exactly what’s happening I have yet to be disappointed. High points for me as expected; Pink Tartan the show was awesome just flawless in its execution colour palette and fluidity. Chloe Comme Parris was also great and even the Korhani Rug Runway show had its points. The day closed with Bustle which was also a great show that featured dog sleds and snow!
I was backstage today and got to interview the designer from Korhani, as well as take a picture with the adorable pink poodle from the show. She was so sweet and well-behaved. The dog not the designer. (LoL) You’ll be able to see that interview on TGIF TV as well as the footage I got of Glen Baxter of In Fashion giving me his opinion on Chloe Comme Parris. Overall it was a day filled with good design and fashion fever from the crowd attending!
