As Day 2 of the Toronto Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 continued to rule the runways in Yorkville, inFATuated was once again present front and centre for all the action (courtesy of rock-it promotions and their team). As the Canadian collections for the coming season continued to heat up the sartorial spirit in the city, we are pleased to see plenty of femininity in play for SS2020. Day 2 of Toronto Fashion Week brought us a variety of pale pink hues, tiered hemlines and girlish florals. Here’s a closer glimpse at some of the key looks from the second evening of runway shows.
KIM NEWPORT: Perhaps best known for her label Pink Tartan, established Toronto designer Kim Newport-Mimran unveiled a new, separate fashion line at an exclusive show at the Royal Ontario Museum. Launched this year, her eponymous collection stays true to Newport-Mimran’s eye for detail and focus on elegance. Our eyes were greeted by pastel pink frocks with lightly crinkled fabric, and dainty bustlines which ranged from woven spaghetti straps to V-necklines. As well, voluminous gowns with tutu skirts and sheath dresses enjoyed their moment in the spotlight, while the occasional pop of off-white, light blue or silver light up the catwalk.
RVNG: Couture designer Jordan Stewart certainly elevated the glamour factor with an artistic, vivid collection which brought us everything from sheer fabrics to thigh-high slits to her signature oversized bows. We particularly love this ballgown, which features layered fabric, embroidered blossoms and a strapless neckline that emphasizes the bust.
NARCES: Toronto eveningwear designer Nikki Wirthensohn Yassemi transformed the runway at the ROM into a picturesque fairytale, where hems were high-maintenance with a bevy of tiers. Meanwhile, necklines were far more edgy than your everyday sweetheart strapless styles. From plunging V-necklines to intricate lace to high collars, variety was clearly the spice of this collection. Meanwhile, colour schemes ranged from classic bridal white to invigorating pops of neon yellow and green.
