The runway brigade
This weekend KiD BRO and I braved the rain and hit Brandon Dwyer`s FW 09 show at Devil`s Martini. It was interesting to see what the Barrie native would do after Project Runway Canada. Even though he was eliminated fairly early on and didn`t know much about Yves Saint Laurent, Dwyer has admirably used the opportunity of the T.V show to power on with his life dream of designing.
Devil`s Martini (473 Adelaide St. W.) gave a cool enough ambiance for a fashion show, and and we enjoyed a quick martini before the show started at 8pm.
The show was full of darkness: All black and blue, and maybe a little plum. Keeping on the theme of darkness, models donned black lips like we saw last fall at Prada and elsewhere.
High-waisted black skirts with equally black one-shoulder top, and a breezy grey top with a leg-o-mutton sleeve seemed casually chic and on-trend. There were also flattering LBD`s, more flowey dark blouses and cute bubble skirts. The finale was Dwyer`s muse, Andi Muse, strutting in an impressive sleeveless sweetheart neckline ballgown with three-teired bubble skirting.
Project Runway Canada castmates attended to show their support. Toronto`s Jeff MacKinnon and Jessica Biffi (who is currently still in the running) had nothing but great things to say about their pal and his collection as they chatted with us outside after the show.
