WMCFashion Week Unzipped: Bustle

Posted 5 years ago by myetvmedia

Bustle momentarily* transported WMCFW guests to the lush Africa savanna for a mini tropical fashion getaway. The highly anticipated, chic S/S 2013 Bustle men’s wear line was spectacular showcasing bold printed suits, colour blocked mixed match pieces and metallic linens. Signature tailoring and attention to detail, has undeniably helped to lead the husband/wife design duo to exceptional fashion success.

After the wildly entertaining runway, myETVmedia stepped backstage with Bustle designers Shawn Hewson and Ruth Promislow to chat about their fabulous and self-proclaimed “cheeky” Spring/Summer collection. Their easy going, and fun personalities burst through the collection onto the runway at WMCFW World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. Bustle wowed us with a distinctive safari theme, a touch of the African savanna combined with botanical celebration and floral brightness reminiscent of Hawaii. Sound exotic? – it is!

Bustle Clothing was founded in 2002 by two Bay St. lawyers turned Fashion Designers - Shawn Hewson and Ruth PromislowBustle has been on a meteoric rise with an impressive list of celebrity clients, and collaborations with many international brands.

The Bustle S/S 2013Collection on the Runway at WMCFW Toronto was a complete theme change from their previous F/W 2012 Rodeo theme with leathers, cotton T’s and plaids.
