Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2015: 5 questions with Mackage
Montreal-based outerwear and accessories label Mackage has been killing it the past few seasons – their must-have moto jackets and covetable handbags have become THE street style staples to spot outside the tent at
Toronto Fashion Week. As we gear up to check out what they have in store for Fall 2015 at their runway show this evening, we ask designer duo Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan about their pre-show ritual, the one celeb they’d love to see in the frow and the first thing they’re going to do when the fashion frenzy subsides.
What do you typically do on the morning of your runway presentation? Elisa: "We like to unwind and try to clear our minds with a little shopping so that we don’t let the nerves get to us! You can usually find us at Holt Renfrew trying to finalize our #OOTD."
Any ideas yet on what the OOTD will be this season? Eran: "I like to pick a leather piece from the current collection; I still haven’t narrowed down which one yet! It usually goes with my mood that day. " Elisa: "I usually get something custom made at our head office – I am thinking of a plunging neck line this season!"
Do you have any food rituals on the day of a runway show? Elisa: "Now that I am five months pregnant, you’ll probably see me indulging on some chocolate! " Eran: "I keep it the same: healthy and well-balanced."
If you could invite anyone to sit in the front row at your show, who would it be and why? Eran: "Madonna! Since she’s already a fan of the brand, so that would bring it all full circle."
What will you do to unwind after fashion week? Elisa: "We have built such a great team that our stress levels are pretty low throughout the week, but whenever we feel a little overwhelmed, we hit the candy section in our showroom."
