Three young labels to watch at Toronto Fashion Week

Toronto's LG Fashion Week takes place from October 18-23 at Heritage Court, Exhibition Place

1 of 2

CHLOE GORDON LABEL: CHLOECOMME PARRIS At 22 and 20 respectively, sisters Chloe and Parris Gordon are years younger than Alexander Wang was when he launched his first women?s wear collection, but the Toronto-born design duo are already poised to become industry darlings. Nova Scotia College of Art and Design graduate Chloe (above) appreciates details - detachable panels, hand-screened patterns, baseball stitching - but understands the beauty of restraint. She favours men's tailoring as a starting point for nuanced feminine silhouettes. Parris makes jewellery that is anything but subtle. - AMY VERNER

CHRISTINA REMENYI LABEL: FORTNIGHT If the idea of lingerie that's sexy from a woman's perspective seems unlikely, enter Christina Remenyi, the 29-year-old designer behind Fortnight, a Toronto-based and -made line of intimates that are retro-saucy without being seedy (support comes in the way of stretch satins, lace and underwire, not padded do-dads). Buzz first started when the nine-month-old brand was featured in a racy viral video called Super Sexy CPR, which generated over six million views and retail interest from the likes of Simons. Next spring, expect to see Fortnight's vintage-inspired styles expand into bodysuits, sized from cups A to F. - T.G.
