On February 6th at the recently restored historic Toronto venue, The Great Hall, THE COLLECTIONS presented night one of RE\SET, featuring some of Canada’s top fashion designers. The showcase was revealed in an innovative format in an effort to reset the thinking around how fashion is presented.

Designers including Sid Neigum, Markoo, Klaxon Howl and Pedram Karimi, all presented their selected looks from current and recent collections.

Sid Neigum showcased eight monochromatic looks in black, white and red from his spring/summer ’17 collection. Toronto-based duo, Markoo put on an impressive show in the Conversation Room showing a stunning collection that focused on pants, outerwear and textured pieces. Klaxon Howl’s men’s wear could be seen downstairs, where the static presentation is projected an air of strength and masculinity of 1960’s Frenchmen mixed South American rebel. Signature avant-garde brand, Pedram Karimi closed off the night with a show accompanied by eccentric musical performance by Montreal-baed singer Apigeon who, while singing, undressed and redressed in various designs on stage, helped by two male models that tended to her every need.
