Spring/Summer 2008

Day ONE


Heather Marks opening Joe Fresh

Despite some initial challenges with conflicts Joe Fresh pulled together a brilliant little lineup to kick off L'Oréal Fashion Week Monday, including what will almost definitely be the casting coup of season; picking up Heather Marks to open SS'08.

Adding Taryn Davidson, Elyse Saunders and Simona McIntyre - three of the hottest new runway models on the planet - certainly earned Modelresource's nod of absolute respect.

Jumping on my high horse for a second, this is exactly what I've been calling for; a Canadian label that invests in top models. Ideally there would be more backing for our designers to invest in the unsurpassed Canadian models that make the rest of the world's runway photos look so damn good. Kudos to Joe Fresh for doing it right.

Whether Toronto's mainstream fashion media are savvy enough to recognize what they just witnessed, and give this show the credit it deserves for investing in the killer models, remains to be seen.

Another model I was personally thrilled to see included is Kate Somers, who is right now probably the best runway model based in Toronto. I can't wait to see more of Ford's young star-in-the-making this week.

There were only two shows Monday, and one is under a media embargo until December so I can't provide images or insights into that, except to say there are several other amazing models that have already made appearances under the tents at Nathan Phillips Square.
