Last week, the WedLuxe team had the pleasure of attending Garrison Bespoke's Toronto Men's Fashion Week (TOM FW) show. We can always expect to be impressed by Garrison's expert tailoring and red-carpet ready formal wear, but this show truly blew us away with exciting fabrics and intricate fashionable details. Here are some of our favourite looks from the collection, photographed by L'Atelier Lumière, as well as a few dapper shots taken before the presentation.
With Milan Fashion Week wrapping up this morning, this afternoon we are highlighting our favourite Fall/Winter 2015 fashion trends in traditional WedLuxe style (see our past roundups for New York and London). Which trend will you be wearing in the fall? Tell us in the comments.
The most popular piece that was featured in almost every show was the lightweight, sheer, romantic dress. Some featured a high Edwardian-style neck (a trend becoming more and more popular in bridal wear as well!) and billowing sleeves, making the gowns that much more dramatic.
OVERSIZED FURRY COATS
Since the weather outside is frightful here in Canada, we are dreaming of wrapping ourselves up in one of these fuzzy creations. Whether made from real or faux fur, these colourful coats are sure to make a statement next winter!
A strong colour trend this season was that of Camel. It was incorporated into dresses, pantsuits and accessories, but our favourite use of camel is in a luxe clutch coat, like the opening look from Max Mara's ladylike collection.
The Milan runways were awash in graphic prints. From Dolce & Gabbana's gowns featuring prints and embroideries based on pictures drawn by Domenico Dolce's nephews and nieces to Versace's minidresses covered in embellished hashtags and @ symbols as a nod to Donatella's fascination with social media, we love this lighthearted trend!
We know what you're thinking, "Pastels for Winter?!", but the Milan runways were full of pale sorbet shades. The lighter hues were a welcome break from the sea of black that populated most of the runway presentations this season.
No longer simply reserved for jackets and purses, leather ruled the runways in the form of structured minidresses and luxe vintage-looking swing coats. We adore the use of this material in a cocktail-length dress with a ladylike silhouette, like those featured in the Trussardi show.

Stephanie and David’s all-white wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto is simply stunning! The stylish bride wore a Vera Wang ball gown that she accessorized with a crystal-encrusted headpiece and feathery clutch. Creations By Gitta produced the floral and decor for the occasion, including the romantic centrepieces with blooms in barely-there shades of pink and white. We just adore the airy, timeless feel of the ART HAUS FOTO captured celebration and we think you will too!
