Carlie Wong, we discovered this morning, was something of a Project Runway contestant on the first season of the Canadian spin-off. Her designs are among the best to come out of Toronto this week, we think, mostly because they are so sophisticated. The long silk dresses with grecian like tailoring were exceptional and her separates look well made and rightly proportioned (as short as those shorts to the left may look--remember the model is taller than your average woman). If television shows give talented designers a platform on which to make better clothes and those clothes give recognition to smaller, lesser known fashion weeks...we think that's wonderful.
