Hello my Lovelies,
As some of you may know, Fashion Art Toronto took place last week, and it was nothing short of spectacular.
FAT is one of my most anticipated festivals of the year because its nature transcends that of a fashion show- It’s more of an experience.
Its combination of ART, SASS, AND FASHION, serves its audience a raw form of creative expression only suitable for the GODS.
For those who don’t know, Fashion Art Toronto is an annual multi-arts & fashion week that celebrates contemporary art and design through runway shows, live performances, fashion films, photography exhibits and art installations. This year’s theme was FASHION EVOLUTION, which focuses on key moments in history that helped define transitions in fashion over time.

Ps. Scroll to the bottom to see what I wore !
This collection was definitely hype! Every look on the runway had me wanting more! Designed by Tyrell Harriott, the clothing line is a display of a destruction of luxury inspired by the current state of politics in terms of female sexuality. The minimalist design, raw hems and oversized sleeves award the collection with a sense of edge and individuality. I am certainly looking forward to seeing more designs by Tyrell Harriott.
Thanks to the music and intriguing visual effects, this collection gave me major Mad Maxx vibes. Jon Riosa managed to capture my full attention with a collection rich in layers, interlacement and bindings. In order to display the containment of thought and feelings, Jon explores physical restraint through wearable sculpture, which bestows the collection with a hint of ambiguity and intrigue.
STEVIE CROWNE: RIDE OR DIE
Think Nirvana meets Tupac.
Since I went through a grunge/punk phase when I was a teen, this collection really speaks to me <3. Rich in symbolism, the Ride or Die collection represents the current state of underground fashion and where its headed in regards to sustainability. Stevie Crowne uses bold aesthetics to emphasize current global movements such as integrated diversity, addictions, education, and environmental awareness through the creative reuse of product (up-cycling). This collection truly represents what it means to make a fashion statement.
Side note: I really want that patched denim jacket !
XUE LIANG DESIGN: LIQUID BAROQUE
If I had to describe this collection, I would go with “upper class amazonian corpse bride squad”. I am absolutely fascinated by the effort and design that went into the fabrication of these elaborate headpieces. Designed by Xue Liang, Liquid baroque is a cutting-edge collection that transforms up-cycled and unconventional materials into lavish, and wearable couture. The purpose of the collection is to determine how one can manipulate and challenge the idea of “everyday waste” by questioning how we decide what objects are beautiful.
