Yesterday I was raving about colour and how everyone should wear it and today I am wearing black and white. The fickle world of fashion…I’ve been covering World MasterCard Fashion Week (#WMCFW) in Toronto for QMI Agency (took today off, however, you can find me here, here or here) and one very strong trend that will carry on into Fall/Winter ’13 is black and white. This is something I can get on board with as long as it doesn’t over take all the strides I’ve made in embracing colour and patters. The 90s were all about black and it felt like a really long funeral.
The Joe Fresh show was almost entirely void of any colour. It was a huge risk and I think it paid off. Other fashion lines like Pink Tartan, Mackage, Matis, Line and David Dixon all had elements of B&W in their shows. Why mess with a sure thing?
I plan on doing a Fashion Week Wrap up this weekend. I am enjoying my first time at the shows and hope to share a bit of what I’ve learned.
