I’m back for my second year at World MasterCard Fashion Week – phew, mouth full – and I’m really stoked because there’s so much new talent! On behalf of UB, we were invited to a presentation with the always lovely Beckerman Sisters and even more excitingly, the guest of honour was Minnie Mouse!? Thanks to Disney Living and their first time ever collaboration with WMCFW, we got to mingle with our childhood dreams and couture. Score!
Six new designers created their own “Minnie Mouse” inspired look for the Mercedes-Benz Start Up contest. So much talent and white wine was leaking through the drapes, it got everyone’s jitters tingling on high gear. I can’t not share my favourites!
The intricate details alone will make you salivate. Observe the second picture below, using Mickey’s signature ears to create a 3D dress? You betchyourass it won first place! Congrats Sid Neigum for a seriously smart design.
Stay tuned for the a wrap up of my time at one of Toronto’s hottest events! I’ll be either talking to brand ambassadors or sipping Diet Coke in the couch I called dibs on (the only pop available, go figure, no pun intended) It’s like Hallowe’en came early for all the fashionistas and I can’t wait to see what it brings,
