It’s autumn in Toronto’s luxury destination Yorkville Village for the second instalment of Toronto Fashion Week. Rebels ruled the runway, while a designer’s introspection created ethereal beauty.  Cocktail attire is never a bore and street style seek elevation.  Trust us: you can’t ignore these looks from Toronto Fashion Week. 

 

HENDRIXROE

“Forget Me Not” captures the rebellious nature of designer Jordan McKay. She is the mastermind behind the rock star glam label Hendrixroe. This was the theme for the collection honouring those who fight for love and equality. The collection featured a range of styles. McKay is never one to shy away from colour and that is an inspiration for fall.

The collections top looks were pastel and deep seasonal hues in satin print suits. Outerwear in wool fabric stayed true to the rock star look in vintage cut silhouettes. Metallics were colourful and donned in leather.
