My my my, have I ever had the most amazing time in Toronto so far! We had the Project Runway finally show at the LG fashion week tents on Thursday, and of course I can’t say much about it except that it was really amazing. The next day I moved my things to Biddell’s studio and accompanied him and the entourage back to the tents for some more shows. I was adorned with a backstage pass from Carlie Wong, as mine was used for “more important people” as Biddells backstage list was very large and I was the last on it.:) So thanks Carlie and Bids for hookin me up. Wandering through the grounds I was stopped every few moments to pose for photos with fans, say hello’s, and receive feedback for being on the show. It was an amazing amazing time. I watched the Ryerson show at 5pm, and was blown away by the knit wear designer, Heidi Ackerman. At 6pm, I sat with a bunch of my PRC2 crew in the second row and took in Carlie Wong. It seemed to be a late 70’s early 80’s influence as gold hoops and gold floral fabric bounced down the runway. My favorite piece by far was the second to last gold dress. It was absolutely stunning.
At 7pm, I was reserved a seat for the Biddell show in the front row and I was stoked. Voluenteers handed out ear plugs for the loud drum and base that was to ensure and Miss Stacie opened the show in an amazing yellow ochre ensemble! There wasn’t even standing room left as fans packed the tent, crouching and sitting in every given space. The clothes were obviously inspired by the future and the bionic woman with a slight wash of the 80’s. Everything was hard and edgy with the relief point being the soft cuts, flowing dresses and embracing the curves of a woman, which no one does better than the rising star Biddell.
Lucian Matis’ show was after Bids and I ended up watching from the VIP room with free dirty voldka martini’s… im mean, where else would i be really?!. From what all I saw my initial reaction was .. hmmm Greta?? and thats all I’m going to say about that.
Biddells after part at Ultra started with a complementary ride from an Audi. Turns out they were doing a free shuttle service from the tents to the bar… what great idea! We arrived at Ultra and were met with amazing food, good service and great freinds, couldn’t ask for much more really. And on another note, I could really get used to this celebrity-ness, as people still approached me to say hello and tell me what a fan they are of the show!! Terri Biddell (Evans mom) and I joined the runway show at the club and shook some serious booty! I’m sure there is photographic evidence somewhere, although I am not in a hurry to find them. HeH.
Today I went to Brian Bailey‘s studio and had a lovely lunch at the Italian restaurant downstairs. I met his very vocal but radical pooch named Mia (correct me if I’m wrong B2). It was great to bounce some ideas off him and debrief from the whole PRC2 experience.
So far I have loved this city and can’t wait for the rest of my week here! Talk soon!!
