Fashionist - Toronto Fashion Week

by Christopher on Oct 22, 2010

After a difficult year, Lauren Bagliore made it to Toronto to debut her signature collection at LG's Toronto Fashion Week. The inspiration for Lauren's 2011 spring/summer collection was personal tragedy and the designer paid homage to new beginnings with a refined collection entitled: "La Risurrezione: Dalla Scura Alla Luce" which is Italian for "The Resurrection: From the Dark to the Light."

Bolero jackets, cropped jackets, draped tops and dresses, asymmetrical skirts and Japanese-style trousers all came down the runway. An impressive multi-purpose black dress in matte jersey made several appearances... each time worn a different way. The final dress - a seductive multi-layer white dress was my personal favourite.

The colour palette was a story in itself. The tailored pieces came in black and silver but by the end of the collection the frocks appeared in a tasteful blush pink, ivory and white.
