​10 hot trends to watch out for at Toronto Fashion Week's spring/summer 2015 shows

Fashion Week kicks off its spring/summer season in New York City each September, followed shortly thereafter by London, Milan, Paris and Berlin.

By October's Toronto Fashion Week, we can expect that some of these worldwide trends on homegrown catwalks.

Across the globe, there was an emphasis on reimagining traditional fabrics and patterns like denim, gingham and suede, while de rigueur spring florals also took on new forms in everything from subtle applique embellishments to magnified macro prints.

And creations came both hard and soft, from the rigid structural detailing of military-inspired pieces to an array of feminine and flirty options sporting sheer peekaboo cutouts.

Back in Canada, perennial favourites Sid Neigum, Pink Tartan and Joe Fresh kick off the shows in Toronto on Oct. 20, 2014. Sid is known for his unusual yet well-styledwomenswear, often using unconventional finishing details (think, singed asymmetrical hems) and shapes.

Pink Tartan’s Kimberley Newport-Mimran always packs her show with immaculately crafted, fresh-off-the-international-runway trends; and Joe Fresh knows how to have fun, usually pairing celebrity models with an abundance of cheap-and-cheerful styles to woo the consumer.
