LG Fashion Week Review: Sarah Stevenson

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

A great woman (okay, a fictional character in The Devil Wears Prada) once sarcastically said: “Flowers? For spring? Ground-breaking…” It’s true that florals as a marker of spring have become something of a fashion cliché. Perhaps this is why designer Sarah Stevenson opted to show a floaty, floral-print-filled collection for fall. The result was the manic pixie dream girl of collections – winsome, a little bit edgy, and beautiful in a low-key way. This skirt was one of my favourite pieces in the collection. Very My So-Called Life meets Jil Sander S/S 2011. (That's probably the most pretentious sentence I've ever typed. Apparently I say things like this.) All pictures are mine. Go find well-lit pictures to steal.
