He's been on my radar for a while now, but since I finally got to see his work in person, it's confirmed: 27-year-old Toronto-based designer Jeremy Laing is definitely one to watch. These pictures, from his Spring collection, don't do them justice. Especially because a lot of the finer details are in the backs of his designs, which you can't see in my runway pictures.
His inspiration for the collection was the arctic in Spring; so a mix of grays, white, and beige with shots of chartreuse and fuchsia. The dresses were gorgeous - expertly constructed and cape-like construction or extra flowing material in the back. Overall, beautiful work that really paves the way for modern design. Bravo.
