Ever since I attended Hayley Elsaesser’s Spring 2015 runway show, I’ve been dreaming of her cosmic prints, sequined dresses and OTT accessories. When the calendar for
Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2015 finally arrived, my name was first on the list for a front-row seat and a backstage pass to meet the up-and-coming
Canadian designer in person. With her jet black hair, yellow eye shadow and bold orange lipstick, she was impossible to miss among the chaos of models, photos and media backstage, where Hayley and I sat down to talk about her midnight cowboy collection. (You’ll never believe what she told me in our one-on-one interview below.)
