T.M constructs his designs with a street like style and a high culture vibe which highlights the uniqueness of his creations. Having recently showed in Seattle Fashion Week, Tristen Mickelson is presenting a new line of innovative and ready-to-wear pieces, accentuating each body and giving fashion a new name. The use of dark hues, fur and the signature pant he’s placed on all the models has allowed a trendy vibe to be presented.

MOSKAL - SwO magazine


Stephanie Moscall-Varey is the face behind the women’s wear brand MOSKAL. While her techniques are influenced by natural forms and fabrics, the knowledge accumulated and the inspiration collected from the environmental beauty of her hometown of Southern Ontario, encourages an innovated approach. The animal fur embellishments and the appropriate fit combined, equal the true meaning behind noteworthy pieces of clothing. Her delicate tones and gentle feel for women’s clothes reflect her collection immensely. Each item strutted down the runway was truly remarkable.

KAKOPIEROS - SwO magazine


Naming Anne Frank as the inspiration behind her collection, Kakopieros embeds dark and chaotic elements to her work. With fabrics outside the “norm,” Kakopieros uses rubber and latex to showcase her visions. Unlike other designers, Kakopieros’ vibe is expressed from influence of worldwide issues – refugees and the environment crisis. The dark leather appeal with splashes of neon green leave the audience wondering where else Kakopieros may take this collection. Just when you thought it could not get more erratic, the disjointed Barbie legs that hang from the models like earrings add a characteristic unlike ever seen before. This collection has an apparent sex appeal attached and the use of everything out of the ordinary has the audience standing just to snap their own photos at these mischievous pieces.
