It was like the pink wave hit fashion week, with so many women showing collections. Michelle Elizabeth showcased acid wash patterns on breezy fabrics and so much more..

When Canada choose to scout 7 up and coming designers, and invite them to showcase at Pier59, we did not know what to expect nor that most of the designers would be female.
The interesting part of this collection lies in its seemingly simplicity but if you look closer there is alot of pattern work despite only featuring 3 colors: Black, White and Grey.
The acid wash on black causes the brown hue and the result is beautifully gothic.
The jackets have a Military feel with double breasted buttons and piping accents suggesting the idea of mixing work with play.
Then the tongue in cheek prints with the face of the designer becoming one with the clothes. It is so designer sharing the fame of the clothes movement happening now. Although instead of a caricature, they is a chic simplicity as if she is still asleep and yet to reach her full potential.
We hope to see more from this designer.

Canada plants its flag at NYFW showing 6 homegrown designers. Today we cover Faun’s primary colors and neutral sportswear looks.

The biggest issue of a group show is how little you actually get to show. Faun’s looks seem to focus on 3 things: patchwork, A tongue on cheek winter meets spring and outerwear.
The yellow and red jacket is the only patchwork item in the collection and seemed out of place. It would of been great if some digital lookbook of the full collections were available. Alas we will never know if this was a technique she used throughout the collection. Needless to say, we want more.
We do not know if the designer was showing 2 seasons at once or if she was adding light fabrics to a heavy fall wardrobe. We hope its the latter. We love light fabrics usually reserved for warmer months popping up in fall. The styling of the sheer top over the sweater seems to suggest that Faun’s light fabric in fall was no accident.
Outerwear is an important part of every fall collection and here we were not happy. We do see some patchwork effects but mostly seems lost to the light fabric motifs which to me was the best in the show.
To see all eight looks, check out our facebook page. We would love to hear thoughts about the collection! DM us on Instagram and you may post your comnents on our feed!
Happy hump day!!💋
