I was invited to a preview of the F/W 12 collections of Denis Gagnon, Sarah Stevenson and Emily Woudenberg held last night at Homegrown Boutique.
Denis Gagnon's Fall collection used mostly black with strategic placements of leather embellishments. I absolutely love his use of leather and wouldn't mind having that dress in the second picture hanging in my closet. Also, this collection marked his return to menswear after 8 years of only showing womenswear.
Sarah Stevenson's collection was full of amazingly beautiful patterns. Blouses were semi-sheer and lightweight and skirts were made with floaty fabric in asymmetrical cuts.
This year's Passion for Fashion award winner Emily Woudenberg was also there to showcase her pieces. The pieces are beautifully handcrafted using materials like leather, semi-precious beads and metal.
