Toronto Fashion Week is the one of the country’s leading fashion events, where both established and up-and-coming Canadian designers are put at the forefront of the fashion scene to showcase their newest collections. This season, there was no shortage of covetable items—from outerwear to full-length gowns, we (almost) can’t wait for fall to wear some of these pieces.

And while we curate our own personal fall/winter 2016 #wishlists, here is a roundup of Dress to Kill’s favorite shows this season.

 

SØSKEN STUDIOS X MARISA MINUCUCCI

The luxury outerwear brand, who made their first appearance at Toronto Fashion Week, was sophisticated and sleek. Layering collars on wool coats, and incorporating fur trims to bags, stoles and scarves, SØSKEN STUDIOS proves that we can look stylish in winter and still be warm.

 

 

MALORIE URBANOVITCH

Both utilitarian and feminine, Malorie Urbanovitch’s collection was effortlessly chic, and with fabric that draped in all the right places. Although most of the models came out in ensembles of subdued tones, the use of silk gave the more masculine pieces an edge.

 

 

UNTTLD

Presented by Mercedes-Benz Start-Up, UNTTLD distinguished itself from other shows this season by presenting us with a collection that was both uber-modern and trendy, yet sophisticated. The use of gold tones and metallic throughout further ensured that we could imagine ourselves in each outfit—either for day or night (ideally both), making UNTTLD one of the best shows we saw this season.

 

 

MACKAGE

Mackage’s runway show was refreshing and inspiring all at once. The brand, renowned for its puffer coats and wool outerwear steered clear of what was to be expected, instead giving us a collection that is young, urban, and beautifully styled.

 

 

GRETA CONSTANTINE

After a showing in Paris earlier this month, Greta Constantine pulled out all the stops for their Toronto Fashion Week show. Bold pointed shoulders, quirky cartoon patches, and deep colorful hues were all paired beautifully with contrasting fabrics, even bolder neck bows, and softly printed stockings.

 

 

 

HELDER DIEGO

Whether it be the pairing of a soft blush dress with a tone-on-tone leather bodice, a mesh undershirt with a tailored suit, and even combat boots with destroyed stockings to an otherwise flirty dress, Helder Diego’s collection was grungy and beautifully detailed.

 

 

JENNIFER TOROSIAN

Jennifer Torosian’s show was as whimsical and colourful as it was young and vibrant. The designs, all casual in feel, were quite elegant and simple, which only enhanced the brand’s sport-luxe aesthetic and fun vibe.

 

 

 

STEPHAN CARAS

Sexy and powerful are the first words that come to mind when asked to describe Stephan Caras’s FW collection. With strategically placed tie-inserts, plunging back-lines, and thigh high slits, the collection was strong and confident, and the pieces masterfully crafted.

 

 

WRKDEPT

WRKDEPT’s collection is contemporary streetwear at it’s best. A great addition to this season’s shows, the collection is oversized, unisex, colorful, and bold.
