Fashion Week Haters and Lovers Collide at Holt Renfrew Media Cocktail Party

Posted by Briony / October 20, 2009

Fashion Week Holt RenfrewThe Holt Renfrew Media Cocktail Party is like a great kiss from someone way better-looking than you--you're left wanting more, but they're off to more intriguing conquests.

This season, the handful of spring looks being shown to the assembled media came from some of Canada's most exciting designers, including Denis Gagnon, Jeremy Laing, and Mikhael Kale.

(Also represented were Fashion Week haters Greta Constantine, Fashion Week participants Pink Tartan, and established labels Lida Biday and Smythe.)

Wow.

Kale showed some wacky--but dead-sexy--space-age minis that were a cross between nineties-Versace and space-age bondage hooker. Only this man could pull off a beaded brocade dress with a deep v-front strung with fringe. His stuff is exciting. Loved it.

Laing showed his usual stark, conceptual pieces that show why he's beloved of everyone from Vogue to his packed New York Fashion Week shows.

And Denis. Oh, Denis! I was ever so sad that he isn't showing again this season: his tight-ass leather jacket with the lovely S-curve to the front, the leather jacket dripping with silver metal trim...

These pieces definitely made me yearn for another kiss from the designers. Hopefully next season...
