The theme for opening night of Fashion Art Toronto 2016’s alt-fashion week was ‘Un Dress’ and it was as theatrical and provocative as it sounds. Taking place at the Daniels Spectrum from April 12-16, 2016, Fashion Art Toronto 2016 featured designers serving up visions of culture, using undergarments and lingerie-inspired women’s wear to make their points.

The With Love Lingerie Collection has ultra feminine garments for women who want to look sexy and empowered. The collection blurs the lines between lingerie and ready to wear.

Wallace Playford treated us to Japanisme and “Neko-pop”: Neko: Japanese for pussycat Pop: Pop Culture. The collection “Neko-pop” is a playful collision of the art movement “Japonisme”, which influenced and transformed Impressionist, and Post-Impressionist art, and urban pop culture. The clothes, accessories and attitude are brimming with playfulness.
