The first thing I thought about this collection is “lazy weekend”. The collection screams lounge and laid-back. The pieces are made of organic or recycled material as Shawna Robinson and Natalie Sydoruk are very conscious about ethical consumerism, which I am a fan of.
Flood and Robicheau
This collection is special as it is designed by Courtney Flood as well as Julianne Robicheau, one of the coordinators for Ottawa Fashion Week! The collection consists of pastel colors and floral prints with various summer dresses and rompers. The materials are light and breezy. This is something you can see yourself wearing on a summer vacation somewhere chic and warm.
What I love most about Andrew’s line is that the entire collection is consistent from the colors to the styles. Every piece is elegant and fitting on the model. Andrew also stayed away from the bright colors and went with light earthy tones, in which caters to the majority of the public.
Judy’s collection is one of my favorite of the night. It’s all about the effortless grunge and boho look. The collection is very carefree and rebellious, yet cute and pretty at the same time. Oh and Judy’s choice of music- Nine Inch Nails and The Crystal Method, LOVE.
So I’m obsessed with Rachel’s dresses. Unfortunately I only have 3. No really, that is unfortunate, as her collection is so wearable to any formal event! Rachel loves to play with shapes and geometry in which make her designs very form fitting. The dresses are sexy from the front and the back with small details in the right places, making it unique yet timeless.
