LaSalle Signature 2011

Lights and drama described the LaSalle Signature 2011 in Montreal on Sunday night. LaSalle Signature is an annual show put together by the fashion and arts grad class of LaSalle College to showcase their creations.

The show consist 130 graduating students and the event attract around 5000 people. Every collection had a unique theme featuring different fits from exaggerated shoulder cuts, flowing maxis, baggy and boho to rock punk Gaga. Solid colored attires were matched with dramatic scarves and accessories while some walked down in outrageous fringe and ruffle details. Here are the highlights:

Juliet's Bird
Juliet's Bird was simple and conservative. The dresses had a traditional feel due to the cut and the choice of fabric. That being said, the shape of the sunglasses and the pretty tights still gave the models a modern overall look.

Project Commande
Project Commande Collection played around with a lot of geometric shapes and shiny material. The models were seen in matching silver leggings and the female models had geometric skirts and unique shoulder cuts.

Beach Bum Chic
Effortless chic described the Beach Bum Chic Collection. It featured one piece swimwear with beachy accessories such as small backpacks and bumblebee sunglasses. I never thought I would say this after going to school for so long but I would like one of those packpacks...

Poor Little Rich Girl
Being a fan of jackets has made this collection one of my favourites. The collection consisted darker hues with pops of silver and gold and the models wore on a one piece with deep V paired with a long exaggerated jacket.

Penthesilea Collection
The collection reminded me of female warriors in movies. I enjoyed the fabric drapes and the feathered details and hey, you can never get too much of female empowerment on the runway.

Concons Collection was full of white, and off whites. Sheer and ruffles were seen throughout which added drama to the pieces.

Thanks to Leidy and the PR folks for the invite. A mini series of “Reality TV” documentary behind what it was like putting together the show can be found at LaSalle College’s website here.
