DUY’s collection for Fall/Winter 2013 was fresh looking! He combined Black, white, grey, pastel blue, hunter green, along with some fur and leather in this seasons preview. The Montreal based designer focused a lot of detail on the shoulder and neck area with padding and fur. The ready-to-wear chic designs were a show stopper! I cannot wait to see his designs for next season!

VAWK design’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection had a full house with a celebrity siting, Elisha Cuthbert, who wore one of his gowns for the People’s Choice awards last year. The show started off very dark and edgy, then went straight to the vanilla/off-white and olive green hues. VAWK’s design included a lot of cutouts in most of his designs. He added ankle cuffs to his looks as an added accessory. I was really impressed with the collection and I looking forward to his next preview!

Joe Fresh’s collection may have been just black and white but the designs blew me away! Their designer, Joe Mimran went for a dark-edgy and punk look, with a 90’s twist on the runway. He showcased his ensembles with head-scarves on top of short black boyish wigs. Popular Canadian models, Heather Marks, Meghan Collison, Chantal Stafford-Abbott, came out to the event to walk the runway for Joe’s stunning designs. It was an exciting show upbeat event with ready-to-wear show-stopping pieces! I am looking forward to see what he has up his sleeves for the next season!

Stephan Caras’ Fall/Winter 2013 collection had my full attention on the runway. Him and his son Kyriako came back to WMCFW to show their incredible pieces. Their collection had crisp white, black, and bright red hues all over the catwalk. The structured houndstooth pieces caught my eye and had me saying “WOW! I want that!” Stephan Caras’ designs also included gorgeous bridesmaid, prom and wedding gowns that had pearls, tulle, and lace all over them! It was an incredible show!

The Heart Truth Fall/Winter 2013 show was a hit! For the 6th year, the fashion for a cause event had the crowds cheering and whistling at all of the models that came out to help support the special cause. Heart disease survivor Janet Parr and Heather Nutt-Christensen were the first to strut down the catwalk, which then followed by popular Canadian celebrities and role models up to the age of 91, wearing dresses made by famous Canadian designers, Ines Di Santo David Dixon, Whitney linen and many more. It was a fun-filled event that had everyone smiling and clapping from the beginning to the end! The show-stopper was Gladys Wenger who is 91 years old (shown in 2nd pic at top). She was nominated to the event by her granddaughter because she was an inspiration to her for continuing to stay active with golfing, walking and curling. I really enjoyed this event and was impressed how much fun theses ladies had on the catwalk!

Pavoni’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection closed the World MasterCard Fashion Week with a jaw-dropping show that ended with bang in sparkling confetti bursting all over the runway! Their well-known gowns and cocktails dresses that get worn by celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Miranda Lambert, and Halle Berry, just to name few, worked the catwalk in full-force! It was all about glam at this preview that included, tulle, lace with black, winter white, carpet and greys hues. They showed many different styles such as peplum, trumpet/mermaid, and mini dresses with lots of draping. I am amazed how great this show was

I am in awe with how incredible the World MasterCard Fashion Week was. I did not expect these shows to be so much fun and exciting as they were! I am impressed and cannot wait to see the next season previews!
