Up & Comer LAUREN BAGLIORE Shines Light on Toronto Fashion Week
28 October 2010
Lauren Bagliore's second collection which she debuted at Spring 2011 Toronto fashion week shows that she is no amateur designer. Her asymmetrical lines, intricately draped jersey dresses and soft tailored pieces came in shades of black, white and grey. The play on light and dark moments present throughout the collection was inspired by “The Resurrection: From the Dark to the Light.” After experiencing major family tragedies this past years, the designer looked within and created a collection that spoke true to her aesthetic. As she puts it so nicely, "I love creating edgy, fashion-forward designs and clothes that are beautifully draped and wonderfully cut. I want women to feel sexy and unique, but also comfortable in my clothes."
Lauren is a friend and native New Yorker. She currently lives in Calgary where she runs her design studio. She splits her time between the two cities. Before launching her own line in Fall 2010, Lauren trained with designers Vivienne Westwood in London and Zac Posen in New York.
We can definitely be certain that we will be seeing a lot more of Lauren Bagliore's work. Her sharp aesthetic, attention to the littlest details and determination are part of a humble start that is sure to take this designer very far.
