Contemporary and Elegant at LaMarque’s Toronto Fashion Week Debut

LaMarque made its Toronto Fashion Week debut on Tuesday with a gorgeous, wearable collection of looks which have a bit of classical, elegant inspiration, yet still very contemporary.  These classic looks are versatile and wearable, unlike many designers who seem to aspire to shock (but at the same time are showing pieces which are not […]

Rachel Sin Does it Again with #StayGold

So the collection only featured two gold pieces, but Rachel Sin’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection once again features simple, yet elegant classics.  With basic black, grey and white shades as well as yellow, orange and coral, the collection is perfect for many occasions, including date night, brunch with “the girls” and even the office (provided that […]

Going on a Mediterranean Vacation with Pink Tartan

Inspired by the Catalan region of Spain, the Pink Tartan’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection is filled with bright, casual pieces that give off the vibe of a fun vacation abroad.  There’s something old fashioned – perhaps taking people back to a time when air travel was a luxury – yet modern at the same time. Though […]

Delicate, Floral Looks at Mikhael Kale

The first day of World MasterCard Fashion Week included designers such as Matthew Gallagher and Sid Neigum.  However, I would have to say that the most interesting collection came from Mikhael Kale.  For Spring/Summer 2016, his pieces had, as a press release put it, “a delicate, yet highly ornate” look with an “elegant seasonal transition […]

Tacky Dressing: Nothing But Attention Grabbing Weirdness

I am not pleased with the state of how people dress these days.  I know that many feel that one should wear whatever he/she wants whenever, but sometimes, rules ARE needed.  I’m sorry, but what some people wear at fashion events is nothing but attention grabbing and often, I feel like photographers and media take […]

France’s BMI Requirement for Models Should be About Proportion

The French government recently passed legislation which mandates a minimum BMI requirement for models.  The BMI must be 18.  Casting directors, designers, agencies and anyone else involved in the fashion industry who do not comply can face a charge of €75,000 (about $82,417 US) and six months in prison.  While this will reduce the number […]

Toronto Fashion Week and the One of a Kind Show

It’s going to be a busy week for DelectablyChic!  World MasterCard Fashion Week starts tonight and we will be covering many of the shows, including Sid Neigum’s Mercedes-Benz Start Up presentation this evening.  Other shows we will be attending include VAWK (who has been absent for the past couple of seasons) and Lole on Thursday.  […]

BCBGMaxAzria Fall Winter 2015: Neutrals with Pops of Colour

It’s interesting.  When I first started writing about BCBG, the runway pieces were very different from what one might see in the boutiques.  It’s changed since Max Azria got rid of his namesake line to concentrate exclusively on BCBG and Hervé Leger.  For a while, it was a bit difficult to distinguish between the two […]

Malorie Urbanovitch: Normcore with a Twist

I have to admit that I wasn’t sure about Malorie Urbanovitch’s upcoming collection as the first few pieces were presented – they were fairly dark in colour, ranging mostly navies and burnt oranges.  It screamed fall/winter.  Not to mention, many were knits, albeit lightweight.  However, as the show progressed, the looks became more and more […]

Pastel Ballerina Looks at Narces for Spring 2015

The press release may note that the upcoming season’s looks for Narces is inspired by the Victorian age and birdcages, but that’s not all it is.  In fact, without the media alert, the birdcage look would not even have crossed my mind!  Instead, I was thinking the ballerina – at least for the shorter pieces.  […]
