A look from Laura Seigel’s collection

If there’s an art to layering, then Laura Seigel is Picasso. (Her bohemian collections always make me want to run home and wear every single piece of my wardrobe simultaneously!) This season, the designer’s palette was mostly rust and olive, with cream accents, and featured hand-knit pieces as well as super slouchy harem pants. Our verdict? It’s a collection made for Jessa from Girls.

A look from Klaxon Howl.

Since when did Klaxon Howl start creating womenswear? This happy surprise got my attention during their fall presentation, which reminded me of Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent Paris collection. Verdict: I’m running out and buying a floppy hat, STAT.

A look from David Dixon’s collection.

Who run the world? Girls! (According to David Dixon, that is). The designer’s girl-power themed show featured an empowering soundtrack, which included Queen Beyoncé and Helen Reddy’s "I am Woman." Verdict: We’re still thinking about this amazing feather collar that came down the runway.

A look from Duy’s collection.

"My collection was inspired by Canadian winters and Narnia," a smiling Duy Nguyen told me backstage after his beautiful show. The Mercedes-Benz startup winner showed a clean, polished collection that wow’ed the fashion crowd last night. Verdict: I literally cannot stop thinking about the dress above. How beautiful would it be as a wedding dress?

A look from Sid Neigum’s show.

It’s no secret that the ELLE Canada team are huge Sid Neigum fans. His collection last night was inspired by religious and medical uniforms, but we got a decidedly Matrix vibe. Verdict: We’re all doing our hair like that for the rest of fashion week.
