Toronto Fashion Week designer inspiration: Spring 2015

Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2015 designer mood board: Malorie Urbanovitch

“I really enjoy mixing eras in a provocative way. For me, this collection was about the women of these eras, notably the 1920s and 1970s, who stood out because they weren’t afraid to stand out. The collection is quite dark—I envisioned a mood that isn’t quintessentially ‘spring’. I’m trying to create a dialogue about norms because I think fashion is an excellent medium to present a sense of resistance.”—Malorie Urbanovitch Editor's picks: Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2015 survival kit

Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2015 designer mood board: Soia & Kyo

“The inspiration of the collection comes from great urban escapes and city parks. It was the Garden City Movement that led to urban planning that allows for a retreat within the city. It is by blending urban styling to the coziness of the country that our Spring 2015 jackets offer a break from a busy lifestyle. This theme is also reflected within the season’s colour palette that ranges from soft earth tones, like sand and mushroom, to bright cosmopolitan hues, such as brick-orange and yellow."—Ilan Elfassy, creative director and founder, Soia & Kyo Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2015: Your ultimate guide

Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2015 designer mood board: Beaufille

“The ready-to-wear collection is inspired by subtleties in movement in relation to studying areal landscapes. It started in this very loose, organic way with the prints, which then started to dictate the silhouettes in a minimalist and simplistic direction. Since Beaufille is still in its early stages as a brand, we were also trying to reinforce the Beaufille aesthetic in a more free, minimal way, with the main goal of effortless wearability."—Chloé Gordon, co-founder, Beaufille "Spring/Summer 2015 was inspired by ancient South American gold work. The shapes and silhouettes in the jewellery stem from the fantastical imaginations of Ancient Peruvian goldsmiths, translated into staple Beaufille shapes and forms, as well as thought-provoking statement jewellery.”—Parris Gordon, co-founder, Beaufille Top Canadian fashion bloggers we love

Toronto Fashion Week Spring 2015 designer mood board: Laura Siegel

“Spring/Summer 2015 is set on the beaches of the Mediterranean, with our classic airy and easy pieces. The collection is inspired by neutral and Mediterranean colours, featuring contrasting styles from handwoven leather pieces to easy shibori hand-dyed shapes. Off-the-shoulder tops, porcelain whites, and turquoise blues, are juxtaposed against ragged rocks with our textured shibori hand-dyed prints. The inspiration behind this season’s graphic prints is the change in the atmosphere described in the weather maps.”—Laura Siegel Canadian fashion YouTubers you need to watch
