LG fashion week- Comrags.

Well hello everyone,
This week is Toronto's LG fashion week.
Oh, how i LOVE fashion week. I've only been to a few fashion shows in the past and each and every one of them were completely exciting experiences! This time I was lucky enough to attend a wednesday night show.
I saw the Comrags line on runway. For those of you unaware, Comrags is a very elegant line of clothing, Designed by Judy Cornish and Joyce Gunhouse. This line of clothing has a boutique of its own on queen street, and specific items from this line, are available in many different stores and places throughout Canada and America!
Although Comrags line of clothing isn't technically directed to girls of my age... i still appreciated this line and the various styles designed for this collection.
I found it very clever how this line of clothing is designed. The designers manage to give each article of clothing a diverse style of its own but yet, still keeping it easy and chaos free!
It was very simple yet far from typical.
It was conservative but not nearly boring.
It was very elegant yet each item had a cool and hip aspect to it.
One outfit that really stood out to me was a dress. It almost had the same concept as a done up trench coat, but the neck line started higher and the length was about mid knee. What made this dress so interesting, was the sleeves were completely cut off, into the form of a sleeveless t-shirt, but not quite a tank top. Not to mention the material was black with a silvery finish to it, which made this dress unforgettable.

The dresses were often sleeveless with a think strap covering the entire shoulder and a high cut neckline. in my opinion this style is a very flattering cut on all women. It was a sleek and a neat cut for the dress and the material being used. it gave a sexy tone to the dress, yet managing to keep the design conservative.

Along side these sleeveless dresses, there were many dresses with long sleeves. i noticed whether it was a blouse jacket or dress the shoulders on the pieces were well shaped. i wouldn't really consider them as super high pinned shoulders, but they were also definitely not flat and droopy. Again i found this to be a very flattering cut for the clothing.

I really liked this line of clothing and enjoyed myself at the fashion show. The one thing in this line i wasn't such a big fan of was the length of most of their dresses and skirts. The lengths ranged from just above the knee to just below the knee. Although, yes it did look fantastic on the very tall very skinny models, normally i find that this length will cut most women and make their legs look shorter and stubbier. But then again... this could be something 'i don't yet understand' seeing as this line of clothing isn't really targeted for 14 year olds.

Overall this was another GREAT experience at a fashion show for me and i can't wait until next time i have the opportunity to attend one again! The photographers, the people, the clothing, its just nothing you could experience anywhere else! I love walking around and seeing all the different people with their outfits, and getting our pictures taken and interviewed. It makes me feel like a star! Everything is such an inspiration to me their, and it just makes me that much more interested about fashion and design in my future. So bloggers, if any of you ever get the chance to go to  fashion show, TAKE IT. i promise it'll be worth it!
