Opening night, Monday March 18th will sizzle with uber street-wear cool, Chloe Comme Parris at 6:30pm and uptown sportswear brand, Pink Tartan at 7:30pm.With polar opposite style aesthetics expect to see the best of both downtown/uptown styling and trends. Chloe Comme Parris’ take on fusing historical design elements will send looks down the runway inspired by the prevailing 90’s grunge trend. Look for delicate ‘moth-eaten’ fabrics paired with ripped jeans, flannel and all velvet ensembles. For those into a more polished collection, Pink Tartan will be showcasing a flawless line, no doubt inspired by Fall’s trends of clean, contemporary lines and classic 50’s silhouettes.

Internationally acclaimed, mega label Joe Fresh should be on your list for Wednesday evening. His popup store in LA, March 8th to 10th attended by celebs includingKate Mara launched the new Joe Fresh collaboration with US retail giant JCPenny.  Affordable fashion, appealing to all ages, the Joe Fresh label can’t be stopped. Expect extremely on-trend looks that will undoubtedly take us into the clean, contemporary 50’s silhouette that Fall is going to be all about. Last season we were treated to legendary Pat Cleveland strutting down the runway to an ultra 60’s theme so excuse us if we’re a little giddy for what JF’s got next for us.

DAY FOUR: Thursday March 21st

Vawk, 8pm

If Sunny Fong’s sexy, stylized Spring/Summer 13 double hitter shows of Vawk and Vawkkin were any indication of what’s to come, expect to be blown away with his Fall 2013 ready-to-wear Vawk runway collection. With an aesthetic centered on modern femininity expect theatrical show- stopping gowns worthy of a red carpet with a mix of separates with classic sensibilities.

DAY FIVE: Friday March 22nd

 Pavoni, 8pm

If you’re searching for a show to take your breath away this will do it. Drama and elegance – look no further than Pavoni, Friday evening. Pavoni is already a favourite of mega stars like Mariah Carey. The Pavoni fashion label has quickly established a name worldwide that is synonymous with high luxury and superior taste. I simply call it decadent. Their Spring/Summer ‘13 collection was inspired by Versailles so prepare to see a Fall 2013 collection worthy of princesses and fairy tales, with keen attention to detail. Look for luxurious gowns and dresses reminiscent of Elie Saab and Marchesa on the runway.

Look for our special WMCFW Unzipped as we feature each designer and take you behind the scenes.
