DO Channel Your Inner Princess Leia

This year for the first time at World Mastercard Fashion Week in Toronto, the venue was transformed into a galaxy far far away for a special Star Wars Design Competition.

The models wore one-of-a-kind pieces designed specifically for the Dec. 15th release of the new Star Wars Film. Montreal Designer, UNTTLD, won the design competition with their gold chain dress inspired by the famous Princess Leia gold bikini.

DO Take a Trip Back In Time

Toronto based Narces designer Nikki Wirthensohn drew on elements of retro style in her 70’s inspired evening wear for Spring 2016. The collection includes ladylike embellishments like soft pastels, lace bodices, fringe skirts and form-flattering bustier-style dresses.

She closed out her showcase with the debut of the label’s bridal line, with a collection of dramatically detailed gowns that can double as special occasion dresses. The finale dress featured a stunning 16-foot dramatic veil which floated along the runway like the ending of a fairytale.

DON’T Forget About “The Great One” 

Canadian Hockey Legend Wayne Gretzky really doesn’t want us to forget about him. He recently joined the fashion community to design and create a new line of casual Men’s clothing inspired by his personal style.

The collection, No. 99 (named after his iconic NHL jersey number) made its debut at this year’s World Mastercard Fashion Week in Toronto and is exclusive to Sears Canada.
