Toronto Fashion Week: Caitlin Power Fall 2013
There are a few signifiers that will let a show goer know they’re at a Caitlin Power presentation. After a few seasons showing at Toronto Fashion Week, you recognize the generous use of leather, dark, rich shades, sharp tailoring, and heavy metal accoutrements. It’s a credit to the designer that she been able to establish a strong point of view in a such short time. Fall’s collection had the same superhero/woman quality with geometric colour blocking, the aforementioned leather, and body-con dresses, skirts and pants. It’s the kind of collection meant for femmes who think of themselves as sexual subjects (rather than objects).
