Collection F/W 2013
With some of the most impeccable tailoring we’ve seen on a Canadian runway, designer Nargisee Akyuz will be one to watch on the international stage. With a collection that featured a heavy showing of outwear, the designer was able to keep each piece unique using different mixes of fabrics with leather and button detailing. The emphasis was on the collars which ranged from conservative to bold, flowing cowl necks. The mainly muted colour palette was offset by a stunning bold red colour story that included a terrific leather pleated skirt in oxblood. Chiffon blouses, leather trim, lace and crochet mixes finished off the runway looks.
