Fashion Week….Burn Out?

Toronto Fashion Week starts next Monday.  Yes, it’s now “officially” called Toronto Fashion Week.   I’m looking forward to the Fall/Winter 2016 shows.  Kind of.  I don’t know.  Many of my favourites are back (though Pink Tartan is NOT showing for some reason), including Hillary MacMillian and Triarchy and Greta Constantine will be closing the week […]

WMCFW Yays, Nays & Mehs: Spring/Summer 2016 Edition

Yes, back again with my wrap of World MasterCard Fashion Week.  And due to a crazy schedule, I did not attend many shows this season either (or, at least, not as many as I could have). Yays: Star Wars:   Loved the R2D2 shoes on display.  The Force is definitely with us. Press and Buyers’ […]

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 […]

World MasterCard Fashion Week: October 19-23

Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week starts next Monday, October 19.  DelectablyChic! will be covering some of the shows – namely select presentations on October 19-21, possibly other days as well.  In addition to runway and studio presentations, we will also be writing about possible new discoveries at the press and buyers’ brunch, held on the […]

WMCFW FW15 Wrap-Up: Yays, Nays and Mehs

I’m actually not sure if I can really post one this season, since I only went to six shows over a period of three days (this is what happens when there are too many events on your plate.  Ahhh… the life of a lifestyle blogger).  However, I do this every season, so I’ll try my […]

VAWK Makes Triumphant Return to Fashion Week

After being absent for a couple of seasons, Sunny Fong made a return to World MasterCard Fashion Week Tuesday evening with not just one collection, but also a small capsule collection in collaboration with Subway.  Yes, sandwich-inspired dresses, including two pieces that looked like lettuce.  While that was mostly wearable art, his main collection was […]

Sid Neigum: Many Practical Shades of Neutrals

Sid Neigum, who won the 2014-2015 Mercedes-Benz Start Up competition last season, presented his collection Monday evening, the first night of World MasterCard Fashion Week.  The models walked down the runway to a string quartet, wearing pieces which were a combination of very wearable pieces to ones which were a bit more artistic.  The palate […]

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.  […]

WMCFW SS15 Wrap-Up: Yays, Nays and Mehs

Here we are again at the end of World MasterCard Fashion Week and our seasonal likes, dislikes and well, “needs improvements.” YAYS: Rachel Sin: Not only does she return to the tents this season, but she also presented both her current and upcoming collection.  I really like how she divided it into two mini-sessions (#rswork […]

Loose-Fitting and Asymmetry at Brit Wacher

If you’re looking for some comfortable, loose-fitting dresses with a bit of a twist, then Brit Wacher is your gal.  Her Spring/Summer pieces, consisting of dresses and separates (including short tops) in unique, asymmetrical shapes – long on one side and shorter on the other as well as broader shoulders.  They also look extremely comfortable, […]
