Live from Toronto, it’s World MasterCard Fashion Week! The Spring 2015 shows take to the stage tonight, and in celebration, we present a special project. Beginning today, we’ll be featuring exclusive photo shoots done in collaboration with Toronto-based creative group The Collections. The photo shoots will feature the best in Canadian designers alongside international brands. Much has been said recently about whether or not the Canadian fashion industry is floundering, and we figure what better way to be the talent troubadours than blending their wares with the likes of Valentino.

Today’s photo shoot, an ode to the season’s statement coats, features local designers Sid Neigum, Markoo, Matthew Gallagher amongst others.

Flip through and stay tuned for the next in this series coming up on Wednesday. Happy fashion week!
