    Ryerson – Mass Exodus

    I attended the Ryerson University Fashion Week that showcased the collections of their grads. There were over 30 sets shown and a few really stood out to me based on wear-ability, colors and movement. To me, some designers design clothing for their own self expression while others truly want to create a lucrative business by offering beautiful pieces that are ready-to-wear.

    She describes her style as luxury streetwear”, the collection is a creative exploration mainly inspired by portable shelter. Exaggerated shapes with a controlled distribution of volume.

    On the right, this jumpsuit/playsuit is backless. So SUPER hot, definitely one of the strongest pieces of the entire show.
