At Style at Home, we so often look at where the worlds of fashion and decor intersect, whether the influence is from room to runway or runway to room, but it’s rare that we get to see these two bastions of style as fantastically combined as they were at Korhani Home’s fashion show.
Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week opened last Monday night with a show that broke down any barriers between home ware and wearables, with models clad in chic rugs repurposed into runway-worthy attire.
Creative Director Kirsten Korhani kept the drama rolling from start to finish, with three themes (Moda Mongolia, Glam Punk and Venice Carnivale), three palettes and three entirely inspiring moods that can flip between fashion and decor.
The vibrant Moda Mongolia was a personal fave for their traditional shapes and traditional prints updated with vibrant pinks and purples, making Mongolia feel not so far away.
But it was hard not to love Glam Punk for their forward new fashion accessory. Teacup yorkies and pomeranians, step aside! The pet micro pig is moving in. And Korhani Home is no stranger to sending cute-and-cuddlies down the runway, with dogs and rabbits featured in their Fall/Winter 2011 show.
Another highlight was seeing favourite Bachelorette Jillian Harris (stay tuned to the magazine to see her balcony in our May issue and her whole home in our Designer Secrets Special Issue). This picture, tweeted by Entertainment Tonight Canada’s Fashion & Lifestyle Producer Angie Smith, shows Jillian styling in zigzags and sequins (two of my favourite things), but what got a laugh here at the office is that that’s Editorial Assistant Eryn Chesney and me staring blankly in the background. Apparently we haven’t mastered “looking cool” at a fashion show yet.
