FAT Toronto ON, April 25 – It’s been ten years and Laura Stewart’s Futurstate was just as relevant and fashion forward as ever. At Toronto’s Arts and Fashion Week known as FAT, her show started with the lights turned out and security agents flashing lights through the crowd. The music changed and a collection of apocalyptic street style emerges to take over the runway. It was all the classic elements we have loved over the years, revamped here and there to perfection. The collection was all in our favorite shade of black, with touches of neon orange, silver, and reflective piping. The looks were kept clean and simple, with staple pieces like black tees with shoulder details, or neon prints. There were dark pants with pockets for everything adorning the men. While straps, shrugs sheers, and skirts with long slits looked empowering on the women. The makeup was created and done by Larissa Palaszczuk of Blonde Moxie Makeup. The neon beauty looks were well balanced and help create the overall impression of stepping into a world of rebels, fighters, and anarchists.
