Philip Sparks’ Women’s Line Launch in Toronto!

14 Oct

Earlier today, I was fortunate enough to get a FIRST LOOK at the new women’s line of Toronto based designer Philip Sparks. I was lucky enough to obtain a position to work at the launch event for the new line through Brill Communications.

The Spring 2011 line showcased gorgeous colours that whispered tranquility into the viewer’s ears; all while emphasizing the attention to detail that was paid to this line quite evident. Philip has a very unique way of designing and putting together very classic, timeless and sophisticated pieces.

Below are some of the looks by Philip Sparks for the Spring 2011 season:

The designs consisted of fairly neutral colours, which consisted of greys, blues, and browns, that spelt out a warm spring day. There was a lot of cuffing of the denim bottoms, and rolling up of the sleeves; whether it was done on a button up shirt or on one of the trench coats. I particularly loved the bottom up dress and the accessorizing of a thin belt within the women’s outfits. The bow ties on the men really stood out, as well as the accessories on them; such as the school boy bag and the mailman bag on two of the models.

Below is an image of Philip Sparks after the show, while getting many congratulations on the successful show and line:

Philip, I really do once again (in writing this time) congratulate you on the success of the launch of your women’s line and the show. I really do wish you success with the new line. Look out for me wearing one, if not some, of your pieces this upcoming Spring 2011.

With Love,

Christie

BASCH by Brandon R Dwyer Launch at Magnolia Tonight!!

26 Aug

A cocktail party will be held tonight at Magnolia in Toronto to celebrate the launch of Brandon R. Dwyer’s new collection BASCH. Brandon R. Dwyer, who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting at different events, is a brilliant and down to earth designer with so much inspiration and character. He is definitely at the top of my list of favourite designers and his new collection can be found online at http://www.basch.ca/home.html. The new line includes a gorgeous collection of girly yet classy and elegant pieces, which are also made up of gorgeous lively colours to bring out the best within our skin tones. What I truly love about Brandon’s designs and collections is that his dresses can suit most shapes and sizes, they are not just made for the itsy bitsy, which we truly appreciate. Brandon has a way of displaying all the best in our womanly curves with his versatile pieces, so there is no doubt you will find a piece for you!

As mentioned before, the launch of BASCH will be held at Magnolia in Toronto (333 Eglington Ave West – 2B) and you can RSVP to the event at rsvp@magnoliaonline.ca or by calling into the store (416-488-9893). RSVP quick since this is a limited event! As always, if you do attend I would love to hear about your experience and review of the event. Have Fun!

With Love,

Christie
