Basch It Up | Fall/Winter 2012 Runway Show

It was very exciting to sit on my assigned seat for the Basch It Up F/W 2012 Runway Show held at 99 Gallery (Sudbury Street, Toronto). Basch It Up is a competition to highlight the immense talent of class of 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 in all Ontariio’s post-secondary fashion programs. A six-month paid internship @EleventhFloorApparel, a $1,000 clothing allowance from Basch, and a $700 clothing allowance from Eleven Boutique in Toronto, where the winning outfit will be sold. Finally the winner’s two-piece mini-collection will be marketed across North America through Basch Agencies are up for grabs.

If you ask me, this is a price to die for – a great break for an emerging designer – imagine the possibilities.

It was indeed a show last night – thanks to Brill Communications for spreading the good word and for the invite.

David Dixon, Arthur Mendonca, Tamar Matossian, and Wesley Badankjak – who featured his Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection “The Waterless Flood” were the judges and for the competition.

Winner: Sarah McGowan | it was no surprise to me (though I am sure the judges had a heck of a time deciding) had an inspiring story on the clip shown (where ten of the contestants had their elevator pitch opp) where she was asked in one of her trips where she got her skirt (Sarah in person is like me vertically challenge no office but certainly the reason why I wear the highest heels possible), with this compliment came the desire for her to create her own line – A MAZE BALLS! So congratulations Sarah and to the rest of the contestants, your hard work is never unnoticed.

LOVAS: *Wesley Badanjak* | aside from his personal aura and aesthetics, the collection for Autumn/Winter 2012 was devine and the flowiness of the collection indeed reflect the theme =  The Waterless Flood.

Indeed it is less than a week where #WMCFW take centre stage – the city is definitely feeling the hype.

Trust you are enjoying the lovely weather wherever you are readers. its sunny and 15 degrees in Toronto.
