the runway at FAT 2011 : Fashion Whore

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

Fashion Whore

Fashion Whore showed on the fourth day of FAT, and in similar fashion to previous years it seemed to focus more on the presentation, statement, and styling than the designs themselves.  Last year it was PVC, this year sequences and iridescents, all materials lending themselves to the over-the-top styling and in-your-face personas.  The show did a good job of getting you excited and interested in the vibe behind the brand but it ended up outshining the actual designs.  I would have liked to see the fun, quirky, cutesy designs of Fashion Whore put on the same level as the other elements of the show.  Yet the realization of a strong style and personality behind the designs is something Fashion Whore has, and this runway show proved, and it’s something that many other fashion designers and companies are lacking.
