It's almost here! With less than one day to go, let's take a look at the final three designers rounding out the incredible roster at Art of Fashion Raw 2012!
Robyn Germanese, a Toronto native, has been drawing inspiration from from world cultures, tribes and ancient practices for as long as she can remember. Her collection for Art of Fashion Raw is edgy and beautiful, exposing the wounds of our psyche on the outside. It is this pain that makes us beautiful and strong, something that is delivered so poetically in her collection, aptly entitled "Morsus". Morsus is defined as a bite, a sting, pain. Pain has never looked as flawless and ideal as it does now.
Tess Barbieri's collection for Art of Fashion Raw celebrates the curves and strength of a woman's body, while providing masculine tailoring. These two opposed design sensibilities harken to the glamour of 1920's and 1930's Hollywood. Her collection is created for women to spend a night out on the town - "A Night At the Opera". The clothes beckon for a woman who enjoys experiencing an evening of culture while dressed in exquisite beading and and flowing pleats.
Our final designer is Mary Duldouras, a Torontonian with an impressive fashion resume. Her collection for Art of Fashion Raw draws inspiration from our own planet, incorporating natural materials that celebrate everything our beautiful earth has to offer. Mary's collection reminds us that our planet is a precious resource that needs to be celebrated and treasured.
Come and celebrate with us tomorrow at Hazelton Lanes from 7pm-1am. We look forward to seeing you there!
