Leading up to the exciting evening of fashion, I spoke with Fashion Magazine's editor-in-chief Bernadette Morra on what it takes to succeed in fashion world and about Canadian fashion. Here's what she had to say:
Which direction do you feel Canadian fashion is heading and how can a consumers helps young designers?Awareness of growing of Canadian design, both within Canada and beyond. But building a business in this country is really tough. The best thing Canadians can do to help is to ask retailers to carry Canadian fashion.
Which Canadian young designers should we keep an eye out for? And why? Haley Elsaesser presented a terrific collection last night. It was fresh and exciting with a young streetwear feel. I loved the planet and lip prints, and use of slogans. She has a great eye for combining colours and prints.
What’s your favorite trend for this season? I am loving the novel take on florals that we are seeing both in Europe and on the Toronto runways. Narces had some beautiful dresses with flowers embroidered on mesh.
As a career woman, what key piece of advice can you give young women pursuing career in fashion?Never stop learning.
With those tips in mind, be sure to check out the event and remember to buy local because with this much amazing talent it's a shame not to. Hope everyone's looking forward to their weekend.
