While she might have only walked four shows this season, Toronto’s own Frances Coombe is one to always make a lasting impression on the runway, powering down the catwalk with her signature flaming red tresses. The industry favourite, who now resides in New York, returned home following a busy show season: “This time around I shrunk it down so that I could fit in some family time,” shared the Elite model who was backstage getting prepped for her last show of the week, Arthur Mendonça. But what was her favourite collection to walk in Toronto? “Joe Fresh of course! It’s always fun, easy, flirty and simple. I loved my first look in the show with the clear clutch. I want that bag within a bag,” gushed the model darling who recently landed a major campaign with Club Monaco.
And we couldn’t let Coombe leave the make-up chair without having her spill on how she maintains such a vibrate red hue: “I have the most amazing colourist at Ion Salon in New York. But when I’m in Toronto I go to see Jed at The Alcorn Salon. He gets it right all the time.”
