TFW diary: We’re not sure if Michi’s LG debut was a fashion show or a Pussycat Dolls rehearsal

Michi, the sporty brainchild of Toronto-based Michelle Watson could easily be described as the workout wardrobe of Lululemon’s risqué and fashion-forward sister. Watson stayed consistent, showing more feminine workout gear for Spring 2012 with an over-the-top show. Models strutted (actually) and flirted with show-goers while showing off a collection of sports bras with multiple straps and pops of purple, mustard, and magenta and matching shorts with slashes of mesh on the legs and peek-a-boo cutouts on the back. Accessorized with leather armbands, sky-high booties, and sass—including one model tossing her wig to reveal a bleached-blonde, closely-shaven head—at times we felt like we were watching a Pussycat Dolls rehearsal rather than a fashion show.
