Not even the unexpected rush of cold Mother Nature delivered slowed things down on the first night of Toronto Fashion Week. Three collections Mikhael Kale, Sid Neigum and Pink Tartan debuted on the runway, much to the enjoyment of hundreds of fashionistas and media alike.

Niegum, who returned to Fashion Week after winning last fall’s Mercedes-Benz Start Up competition, showcased what he does best: create wearable art. With his collection for the season being black and white coats, Neigum plays the minimalist role well pairing tailored skirts and coats with avant-garde shirts and sweaters.

Later, keeping up the artistic wave, Kimberly Newport-Mimran and her team at PINK TARTAN set up cloud-like fixtures along the runway mimicking ice glaciers. Right from the first look, an Everest green pantsuit and a fur shawl to match, it was clear that a winter getaway influenced PINK TARTAN’s collection. Fur, wool and deep colours were the theme this season. And as an added bonus, all outfits were paired with gold-heeled ankle booties – a treat to see the numerous ways to sport class black boots.
