WCFW Day 6: The Collections

My friend Daniel and I   dress - Kensie from Etzio, tights - Zara, boots - Spring  belt - Zellers

Another fabulous night of fashion! I don't want Western Canada Fashion Week to end! I'll think I'll go through withdrawl when it does. Here are some photos from Tuesday night and highlights from the collections that were shown that day.

Day 6 of WCFW opened with Highgrade Clothing's presentation of Japanese Fashion Designer Yohji Yamamoto's Y-3 S/S 2011 ready-to-wear collection.  His line was sharp, chic and sporty. The cute shorts and tees we saw on the runway had me yearning for warmer weather. (Or at least for the snow to melt!)

Lisa Marie Sciroli's S/S 2011 "Charmed" collection featured colorful, fun and flirty dresses and skirts. I love how she used real women as her models and showed off their beautiful curves with her feminine and wearable clothing. Pssst! That's blogger Kastles in the middle strutting the runway. She rocked it!

Talented Designer Genette Salgado's F/W 2011 exquisite dress collection titled "Baby, Whatcha Gonna Do With Your Life?" literally took the audience's breath away. You could hear people gasping in their seats (including mine) as her statuesque models strutted down the runway one by one in her elegantly detailed and carefully crafted impeccable designs. It was my favorite collection of the night and I didn't want her show to end! I have a feeling Genette is going to take the Canadian fashion industry by storm! She's a rising star you'll definitely want to keep your eye on. To read my interview with this up-and-coming designer click here.

The always-theatrical Rebecka Pichoch showed off her latest collection called "Secrets." The majority of the models wore masks covering their mouths and at the end of the show Rebecka herself came on stage in what appeared to be a gas mask which I didn't quite understand. But my favorite piece from her showcase was the funky and sleek Lady Ga Ga'esque black dress you see above, right.

Tressa Heckbert was the last designer of the night to show off her collection  for her contemporary "Sessa" clothing line which caters to both men and women. We saw earthy colored fabrics, lots of drapery, a little bit of layering, crisp, clean lines and Frida Kahlo-like uni-brows on all of the models. Overall it was an impressive show and I look forward to seeing what Tressa comes up with for her next collection!

I LOVE Genette Salgado's collection-Especially the dress that is cream on top and brown on the bottom-with white jewels on the bodice.
Great pics as always!
Enjoy your last nights of Fashion week!
