In an exclusive media preview on March 9th at the newly established headquarters at BrightLane (545 King Street West), THE COLLECTIONS™ made an official announcement of the six designers confirmed for fall/winter 2015.
The #TC6FW15 consists of 111 by PARLOQUE, HELDER DIEGO, TRIARCHY, MIKAEL D, KLAXON HOWL and MALORIE URBANOVITCH imaged above, (left to right). Each designer was provided the opportunity to present one look from their latest collection to be shown at World MasterCard® Fashion Week.
Hosted by Robin Kay, founder of Toronto Fashion Week and president of the Fashion Design Council of Canada (FDCC), the media launch was strongly driven by a “Made in Canada” theme, a fresh fashion dialogue focusing on individuals and associations who live and breathe the industry in Canada, underlining the activation of the fashion designer into the business of fashion.
“The importance and value of individual designers to Canada’s fashion design industry has never been more clear to me,” said Robin. “I want to inspire more “Made in Canada”, just as I’ve been inspired throughout my career by what it means to be part of this amazing industry. It’s about people, places, and stories. And through ongoing collaboration and dialogue I want to firmly anchor fashion design as a pillar of culture and commerce in Canada for years to come”.
“This World MasterCard® Fashion Week, THE COLLECTIONS™ will be managing full production, styling, branding and public relations for the six runway shows of the #TC6FW15. Entering its ninth season at the tents, the company is looking forward to collaborating with a new roster of designers, while celebrating the accomplishments of its founding clients.”
