“Isn’t it amazing to see Canadian talent on display here in Canada?” That was
Coco Rocha kicking off yesterday’s fashion festivities and eliciting warm applause at
The ShOws at the Ritz-Carlton. Toronto’s stylish citizenry was out in full force to check out two of Canada’s hottest fashion expats,
Calla Haynes and
Thomas Tait, who both staged their Spring 2012 collections at the newly opened hotel.
Up first: Thomas Tait, the Montreal-born, London-based fashion wunderkind whose buzz factor is sitting firmly at 11. The youngest graduate of Central Saint Martins’ fabled MA program, Tait won the inaugural Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize in 2010, impressing such heavy hitter judges as Manolo Blahnik and Daphne Guinness.
