LG Fashion Week Review: Amanda Lew Kee

Toronto's LG Fashion Week is a chance for the Fashion Design Council of Canada to show off home-grown talent.

Hipster favourite Amanda Lew Kee's fall collection was built around basic black - basic black infused with pops of brightly coloured pseudo-tinsel and a weird, filmy multi-coloured fabric, that is.

Unlike Lew Kee's spring collection, this one wasn't met with critical acclaim (The Globe and Mail's Amy Verner says the proportions "alternated between apron and shower curtain") but I kind of liked it. The crazy colours and fabrics were an interesting contrast to the overtly sexy sheer tops and skirts with precariously high slits that were prevalent throughout the show.
