LKisEvents: Montreal Fashion Week, Nadya Toto


I have a Nadya Toto gown and it is one of those dresses that doesn’t go away.  Classic with a hint of a story these clothes are inherently wearable and to this day my black strapless Nadya Toto dress is my go-to.  In the case of this seasons show, it was Black Swan relived, with feathers, texture, birdlike hairstyles and a stark black and white color palette.  What is it about fashion: good and evil always seems to be telling its story on the runway….

Hemlines were mostly short and texture was everywhere.  Each piece made me want to get out of my seat and ask if I could feel the garments (I managed to quell that urge, btw).

In post-event discussions amongst bloggers and blogettes, it was unanimous that the white pieces succeeded in creating a totally wearable romantic and soft contrast to the predominantly black collection:

My favorite piece was a black jacket with a raised back and voluptuous ruffles.  I would sport it with black leather leggings and an oversized white Oxford…

There was an obviously ominous vibe, but the avian quality to this show kept it light and prevented the aesthetic from becoming too rock and roll.  Overall an interesting and elegant balancing act.
