Are these the most daring clothes in Toronto?
Ashley Rowe, the young Toronto designer, presented her small spring collection in a dark warehouse last night. The look: fancy Friar Tuck. Rowe’s clothes have featured loose silhouettes and creative dyeing methods before (remember those splatter-paint blazers and dresses?), but this latest crop of designs takes bagginess to the proportions of a monk’s robes and cribs colour from Haight-Ashbury psychedelia—the fabric is tie-dyed. Over at the Globe, Tiyana Grulovic calls Rowe “a straight-up artist,” and while we applaud her daring, we wonder whether Torontonians are bold enough to wear these clothes. See the full collection in our slide show, and let us know what you think in our fashion poll below.
