I’m incredibly thankful to have been sent to Toronto Fashion Week to watch the Hilary MacMillan show by Spread. It was both Cassandra and I’s first time attending so we had no idea of what to expect. In all honesty, as much as we were excited for it all, we were also nervous since it was our first experience.
When we got to the venue, we saw a bunch of photographers snapping street style shots. It was very overwhelming having all these cameras around when you’re walking inside. We wanted to take more photos outside but it started to rain so we went straight to the lounge. There were so many incredible outfits from everyone, from bold colours to monochrome ensembles, there was so much variety! Surprisingly, there was no outfit that I found bizarre.
I knew beforehand that Hilary MacMillan‘s show was going to be the first collection she launched as cruelty-free which I thought was a fantastic development in the fashion industry. The main colours in the collection were pale pink/rose quartz (aka one of the Pantone colours of the year) and black. It was a nice contrast having a very spring-like colour mixed with black instead of a strictly pastel colour palette or minimalistic choice of colours.
