Montreal Fashion Week: Day 1: yK.com was there!

Andy The Anh SS 2010

Sequins, fur, black, black and more black…it must be fashion week in Montreal (and that’s just amongst the fashionistas)! Kicking off its 17th edition, Montreal Fashion Week launched yesterday evening with a press cocktail featuring designer Andy The Anh.

Born in Vietnam and then having immigrated to Canada in 1981, Andy The Anh has had quite an interesting design lifecycle.  Having worked for many major Canadian brands, The Anh finally launched his namesake collection in 2006 featuring modern, sexy and elegant ready to wear and evening wear.

For Spring 2010, Andy pairs hues of blue (trend note: huge for next spring) with black, white and moonlight. Highly structured suits in linen stretch and cotton sateen introduce a relaxed chic.  In his evening wear: draping, tucking, pleating, peplum and bias cuts all carry the trademark feminine edge which Andy is known for.

Can’t get to Paris Fashion Week? Well the French came to us with a cute collaborative showcase featuring 10 up-and-coming designers.  Everything from t-shirts to cocktail dresses and lingerie to abstract knits paraded one by one to work their way into the stores and wardrobes of Canadians.  Designer Eun Jung Choi, stuck out in my head with modern takes on signature French style.
