This week has been kookoo. Busy-me has been a busy-bee and it has been a little hectic along the way. But in order to be true to my blogging ways, I must go back and recap my adventures at Montreal Fashion Week, because I had a blast (especially hanging with awesome girlies like Miss Sly, Montreal’s SweetSpot Editor, Flare’s fabulous fashionista, and of course my new/awesome friend/Blogette Jen).
First up- what did I wear? well, day one was a brisk one, so I popped on a vintage maxi-dress, a vintage belt, Aldo shoes and a black Gucci purse.
My first show on site was David Dixon and it was a red, white and blue extravaganza, with embroidered flowers, stark blue shoes and shimmery white sequin detailing.
My favorite piece from this show, was a flowery white shrug, that I would love to throw on with a pair of skinny jeans, a white tank-top, lots of silver jewelery and a pair of silver Manolos.
My second show of the day was Helmer, which I must mention, was packed. This collection was more artistry than wearability, but I was told by someone in the know that Helmer has a knack for putting on a fabulous show and then reinterpreting his looks for the every day client (in my opinion this is the true sign of someone who understands that a fashion show should be just that, a show). Some of the highlights: an asymmetrical red, green and white with glass accents ensemble, a cocktail dress that looked as if it has been plucked from a garden and a rather beautiful older model sporting an elaborately beaded gown.
The truly remarkable piece, was a gown covered in shades of blue glass, that the audience could hear delicately clinking like a chime as the model moved down the runway.
