Toronto Fashion Week: Miz by Izzy Camilleri
THE LABEL: Miz by Izzy Camilleri. Over the years Izzy Camilleri designed various collections including a namesake label, a fur label and a very successful line of apparel for people with physical disabilities that use wheelchairs called IZ Adaptive, which is available in her Toronto store and online. Miz by Izzy Camilleri marks her return to the runways with a fashion label aimed at baby boomer women.
THE COLLECTION: A stellar lineup of form fitting dresses, cocoon shaped coats and lady-like suitings in hounds tooth patterns and classic camel. This sophisticated collection oozed the hauteur elegance of an icy Hitchcock heroine.
THE ZOOMER TAKE: Reinforcing her mandate that is a collection for women looking for grown up clothes, Camilleri casted her show with a few grey haired older models. But this was a collection that featured classic easy pieces that would truly suit anyone – regardless of age – who is looking for clothes that don’t pander to trends.
