First edition of Toronto's Re/Set comes to a close

Feb 9, 2017

On Tuesday night, the first edition of the Toronto fashion showcase Re/Set came to a close. The two night event organized by Toronto-based production agency The Collections, featured Canadian womenswear and menswear designers in a series of fashion showcases and runway presentations.
The event took place at the historic Toronto venue, The Great Hall, where a showroom was equally opened, presenting items from ready-to-wear designers such as Tara Rivas for TMR, Triarchy, as well as accessory designers Dean Davidson, Krane, Cuchara, and shoes by Zvelle.
"It's been an amazing two days of fashion, art and music and we are so grateful for the support of the industry as a whole, and especially to Robin Kay, whose guidance and experience allowed us to put together a transformative event," said The Collections, in a news statement.

Then, it was the turn of Toronto-based duo Markoo to put on a static presentation where tailored items and outerwear in several textured fabrics stood out.

Later in the evening, menswear line Klaxon Howl was presented in a fashion showcase where popular Canadian model Paul Mason could be found sporting camo pants and a velvet blazer.
