Canadian designers from across the country flocked to Toronto to show their Fall and Winter 2013 collections.
The tents were set up at David Pecaut Square in downtown Toronto and industry members, media, designers and fashion enthusiasts showed up for the first look at what Canadians can expect to see on the shelves in six months.
The luxury fashion label co-founded by Mike Derderian and Gianni Falcone built a collection based on romance. The collection featured exquisitely crafted garments, ornate embellishments and lush fabrics. The expansive line had elements of slim-fit minis, peplum accents, flamboyant tulle, jeweled designs and bridal gowns. Lace, tulle and taffeta were the grounding elements with highlights of crystal, studding and tattoo-style embroidery. A siren-red gown was a standout, along with steel-like dress that, from a distance, appeared to be almost armory-like. Pavoni also offered a couple of options for brides looking for a standout gown with romantic elements.
The Pavoni label (Italian for “peacock”) was established in 2011 and based on elegance with a contemporary edge. It has since become known as a red carpet staple for celebrities.
To cap off a fantastic show, an explosion of silver confetti from the rafters floated down around the models during the final walk – the perfect way to wrap up Toronto Fashion Week.
