FLARE Was There: Greta SS '14
Greta Constantine’s Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong know how to throw a party. Their shows, always presented just slightly off season, have been fetes where the atmosphere is often as important as the clothes themselves. Which brings us to Monday night at Malaparte, the tony private space at the Bell TIFF Lightbox , where the duo presented their 23-look collection for spring in a much more intimate setting. A small(ish) dinner for clients and press was served alongside a runway presentation before even more partygoers filed in later to ogle the clothes and, presumably, other partygoers. The collection was filled with signature Greta slink: body hugging dresses, plunging backs and sloped shoulders; swapping their signature jerseys for stiffer fabrics, silk faille and microfiber knits. One look around the table, where society-set luminaries like Suzanne Rogers, Raina Florida and Stacey Jordan whispered in admiration as models walked between courses, hinted that the show was a success—and likely a very commercial one.
