Taking a cue from the 1940s, Attitude, the young clothing line from mega retailer Sears, showed a very polished and cohesive collection film noir-inspired dresses, cardigans, cropped pants and pencil skirts. Most impressive were the cosy knits, including the draped-back camel sweater, the grey cardigan with black trim and the ink blue sharp shoulder sweater. Figuring skating bronze medallist Joannie Rochette ended the show with a cute little strut, and applause from the entire audience. Click here for full collection.
Proving once again that he is a master at creating contemporary dresses for Canadian women, Andy The-Anh sent out floor-length skirts, worthy of Tilda Swinton, with a smattering of cropped and longer dress pants with strict blouses and of course dresses. We’re sure his well-heeled front row of favourite clientele will be aiming for the black and white graphic printed capelet and dresses, or the camo floor length silk gown.

When a professional violinist popped up mid-runway playing along to a dramatic score, we were hoping for some drama from Pink Tartan. A little more reserved than we expected, Kim Newport-Mimran’s Fall 2010 collection consisted of puffer vest and jackets, leather and fur accents and a relatively muted palette, save for one bright red dress.

Always the talk of fashion week, the Joe Fresh front row was as star-studded as the catwalk (think Susur Lee, Ivana Santilli, Sean Desman and Gian Gomeshi). Plus-size model Crystal Renn opened and closed the Fall 2010 collection (and seemingly flew right back out), with 90s star Kirsten Owen stomping right behind her. And as always the extremely wearable looks from the grocery store brand did not disappoint. Tweed, faux fur, knits, sequins and military colours were all expertly mixed in the 52 piece collection.
