FAT Toronto ON, April 26 – Masha wowed the crowd at Toronto’s Arts and Fashion Week known as FAT. I’ve passed the designer by previously for just a little too much color for my tastes and a bit more throw back then what I was looking for. But with the new collection of black on black with chain and stud details, I took notice.
The pieces are all made in Canada, and flow in a witchy way. Sleeveless, backless, leather coated jersey, silk, or taffeta materials mix with mesh. The shaping was beautiful, flowing around the models bodies, showing off curves in all the right places. There was a solid collection of head to toe gorgeous gothy pieces.
Masha Ruginets is one to watch. And I am happily amongst her newest fans.
