the runway at FAT : Pippa

The runway shows at FAT, Toronto’s alternative fashion week.

Pippa

Latex, I get excited anytime I see it used in ways one would not expect.  Pippa’s collection at FAT consisted of country club sports inspired latex outfits in a range of pastels.  I have always loved latex in pastels and I love the idea of a seaform green, latex tennis outfit with the texture of a cable knit sweater.  I am very curious to see one of the knit textured waist cinchers from this collection up close and see how that effect is achieved.  There are a handful of designers out there currently using latex in creative and new ways, from the look of this show, Pippa is one of those up and coming latex designers.  The stand out piece of the show was definitely the pink ruffled bikini (shown in bottom right photo).  Latex is a great material for a swimsuit and this piece is the perfect suit for an intimate, risque pool party with friends.  Pippa’s collection shown at FAT was fun and sexy, looking forward to seeing more from them.
