For Spring 2014, I attended the Mercedes-Benz Start Up program at World MasterCard Fashion Week, which gives up-and-coming
Canadian designers a chance to showcase on one of the largest runways in North America. This season, I sat front-row as Spring 2014’s winners—Malorie Urbanovitch and Matière Noire—brought their entire Fall 2014 collection to life at Toronto Fashion Week. The result? Two strong shows that prove these fresh
Canadian fashion talents are ones to watch this year. At Malorie Urbanovitch, the theme was schoolgirl chic with models parading the catwalk in knee-high stockings, cropped knitwear and ultra
cool backpacks.
Check out our favourite look from Matière Noire Fall 2014 after the jump…

Matière Noire brought the drama to TFW Fall 2014, beginning her presentation with still models standing on the runway for those close-up Instagrams pre-show, followed by pulsing music and an abstract light presentation. The collection was comprised of all black dresses with lunar motifs, cobalt colour blocking and swanky
ball caps you’ll want to wear come September.
