[FAT], forward and full of flesh

Creativity was certainly in the air, as local and international designers took to the runway at Studio City last week for Alternative Fashion Week [FAT] 2010.

Although there were nip slips, here, here and here, no amount of flesh could take away from the young designers’ moment in the spotlight.

Notoriously outside of the box Evan Biddell showed a reworked vintage collection modeled by Toronto media darlings and fashion faves.

Gail McInnes (left) sported a comic print ensemble that spoke to Biddell’s unique adaptations of Saturday morning cartoons, anime and all things pop. Gail gave us drama, attitude and my very own (albeit blurry and out of focus, ha!) hot off the runway papp snap.

The collection was reworked vintage, but in such a Biddell-ian way – it was a much harder, much sexier Preloved.

A sleeveless trench dressed Eye Weekly style writer SNP – this would be the second time we’d see her stomp the runway, but this time she’d tease the crowd with a flash of skin. Keepin’ it real, but more importantly, keeping it FAT (alternative fashion week moniker, FYI).

MUCH VJ Jesse Giddings was on fire – seriously, in just a fur trimmed pair of suspenders, he caught every man, woman and denying pope’s attention. I need to have those suspenders.

Other notables included Isis from recently disbanded Thunderheist, Pastel Supernova of retired Fritz Helder & the Phantoms, Franke’s Kendra Francis and local vintage vendeuse Kealan Sullivan. All models sported looks with their energy and style in mind – the one unifying factor? They were fashion-forward and one of a kind.

Check out my coverage of the week – there were hits and misses, but ultimately the week boasted contemporary design and progressive POV from Canada’s young up and comers.
