These were the stunning images created by stylist, Tasha Farrington and photographer Adam Zivo for a spread in Auxiliary Magazine a few months back. The landscape is downtown Toronto, near my studio location.Definitely looks more interesting captured on film.The designers featured in "Dissension" are mostly local talent including Victory & Vice and my alter-ego collection, Futurstate. Hope you enjoy them!

FAT 2012 - Victory & Vice

An all-black colour palette in mixed textures dominated for designer Laura Stewart's debut runway show of Victory & Vice last week at [FAT]. Fab details like zippers, leather straps and cutouts added a little edge to this collection of feminine frocks (many with beautiful draping) and wearable separates.

TORONTO: Rising fashion label Victory & Vice is set to showcase their latest womenswear collection at the 2012 Fashion Arts Toronto week -|FAT|. The first time runway show for Victory & Vice will entice viewers with their distinctively refined yet raw style. Intrinsically dark in nature, expect an array of sultry sophisticated dresses, extremely curve-enhancing structured separates, and fluid knitwear that artfully exposes and conceals the body. Hidden within are influences of military uniforms, fetishism, and the avant garde. 

The look of Victory & Vice is powerful and sharp, both pristine and refined with just the right amount of grit - a vision of deconstructed elegance. The contemporary style with its professional demeanor, transitions quite seamlessly from work to an evening on the town. Classic, yet forward the black on black look is stunning in its mix of textures. Smooth and modern surfaces combine effortlessly with earthy tactile elements creating the dynamic look of urban femininity. It's a landscape infused with post-modern sensibilities with historical construction and attention to detail. Contributing to the local economy the collection is designed and made exclusively in Toronto, Canada.
