LG Fashion Week Day 2

October 22, 2009

It was a busy day at LG Fashion Week as the runway opened to the week’s formal runway presentations. Here’s the first FIM video showing you highlights from the runway and interviews with designers this Tuesday. Below is our daily runway commentary about the spring 2010 presentations for this second day of LGFW including David Dixon, Travis Taddeo, Jason Meyers, and more.

An energetic and acrobatic show by VATA Brasil drummed up excitement about the line of stretch athletic wear by designer Ananda Gomes. The designer’s own experience and interest in active wear as well as her Brazilian background translates into a collection that is fun, sexy and demonstratively able to move. Best moment: a row of models/athletes down the centre of the runway jump-rope skipping to the music in time.

This collection of men’s wear by creative director Brian Maristela is described as “East meets West summering in the Hamptons.” What we saw on the runway were light cotton embroidered shirts perfect for the cabana. Suit jackets paired with matching shorts suggest a casual approach to formal attire for spring. Best in show: white vest with black detailing.

Travis Taddeo

Travis Taddeo’s “Vive la Revolution” collection at LG Fashion Week was not for the faint of heart. The white, red, and blue collection debuted with extreme high-cut swimwear and followed with French-inspired colour-blocked pieces that are Taddeo’s signature look. Think dominatrix meets American Apparel.

Jason Meyers

It was a home run for this flirty collection lovely detailed with ruffles and flattering mini dresses. Jason Meyers has the modern gal in mind when he’s designing and the pieces he sent down the runway could have walked off and danced the night at the designer’s after-party. Runway notes: purple, asymmetrically mounted ruffles, icy blue, pointy shoulders, and lots of charm.

David Dixon

This collection was self-described by David Dixon as a departure from his usual more regimented looks. It was a spring breath of fresh air for 2010 when bright citron rows of delicate chiffon swayed down the runway along tops, dresses and skirts. Who wouldn’t want a classic cut dress with a fun full skirt detailed with rows of semi-circled ruffles? Pin-wheels of chiffon, satin skirts, and a knock-out strapless dress layered with spiky metallic tabs for a new disco era. Genius, beautiful, and our most memorable collection of the night.

What’s not to love? This fun collection of mix-and-match pieces is Barbie at her best: black-and-white prints, hot pink skinny belts, and fun trenches to skip your way into spring. The collection’s adorable footwear (available at Town Shoes) corresponded nicely with the flirty and whimsical collection that any real-life doll would adore.

Always a fun show, the Bustle clothing collection featured check, check and more checks. Designed for the man of leisure and for those who wish they had more time to spend lounging by the pool or perched on a yacht. Bright red and blue check print for casual trousers, easy blazers, colourful cardis, and fun swim wear for the boys. Best in show: bird-printed sweaters and swimming trunks.

Stay tuned for more FIM video and photos from the runway at LG Fashion Week!

Special thanks to Peter Lytwyniuk at StudioLit for his fantastic photographs from the runway.
