This Glitterati Style File from our current issue is brimming with opulent gold and navy blue wedding inspiration! Laura Atendido of Laura & Co. Events and Rachel Clingen of Rachel A. Clingen Wedding & Event Design served as producers for the “Hanging Gardens of Babylon-themed” editorial. Toronto Botanical Garden was transformed into a dreamy oasis for the shoot, and Visual Cravings was on hand to capture every detail. From the floral wall-inspired seating chart (designed by Paper & Poste with blooms from Rachel A. Clingen) to the Ines Di Santo gowns paired with Tara Fava jewels, this shoot left us completely enchanted.

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.

ROMANTIC DRESSES

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!

CAMEL

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.

GRAPHIC PRINTS

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!

CAPES

Judging from the cover of our most recent issue, it's obvious that we at WedLuxe LOVE dramatic capes, especially when incorporated into a wedding dress or as a topper at a winter wedding. Luxe versions put forward by Emilio Pucci and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini were our favourites.

PASTELS

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.

LUXE LEATHER

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.
