This past weekend, season 9 of Atlantic Fashion Week set the stage for a burgeoning talent, Anthony El-cid. His collection followed the exploration of a garden. A calm and serene walk through a never-before-seen place leading to a space abundant with blossoms, all while the sky changes tone to a deep bronze as the sun sets.
To see such a cohesive and logical debut collection on the runway was a hair-raising moment for me. The softer pinks and 3d florals depicted the garden and tones deepened to rich coppery silks to emulate the dusk while the flowier sheer fabrics showed movement through the garden.
Anthony El-cid is someone I am happy to know personally and whose talent is evident in his work. Anthony El-cid is a name you need to remember and Anthony El-cid, will be on the mouths of the Canadian fashion industry in the very near future.
