Watch out. There is a new name in the Canadian fashion industry as Brit Wacher is taking the runway by storm.
Hailing from Montreal, Brit Wacher is a forced to be reckoned with. Her elevated designs merge the ideals of fashion and science imprinting a new perspective on the world through her garments. With a wide range of experience working in international fashion houses and design studios in Asia and Holland, her extensive knowledge within the industry has helped her refine her craft at a young age mastering immaculate design, sewing and finishing skills.
Brit constructs garments that alter and translate shapes that complement the female form in unique silhouettes. These versatile pieces creatively highlight the natural curves of a women’s body using a variety of different fabric weights and textures to create three dimensional geometric designs. Drawing inspiration from different elemental structures of the universe, this collection reflects her perspective through life and fantasy by exploring the planets and other universes far away. Her collection is filled with asymmetrical cuts creating refreshing and clean pieces through an innovative conceptual design represented in subtle, glowing hues.
After debuting her new Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Sowing Over the Moon, in Toronto during World MasterCard FashionWeek in October, she is all fired up to work on her upcoming collections. Brit is currently working on a new collection filled with more wearable and affordable designs featuring gorgeous dresses made of jersey and knit fabrics. With big plans to expand all across North America, stay tuned for a pop-up shop near you!
I loved the diversity in her collection, from dresses to separates that are perfect to layer; here are some of my favourite looks from Brit Wacher’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
Look 1: A high low dual crop skirt paired with a crisp structured tuxedo top gives a fresh new spin on a classic, yet exquisitely tailored style. Her use of figure flattering paneling and darting creates a soft and refined look.
Look 2: A futuristic take on the mod inspired mini, the sport print crop and print space skirt made from fabrics designed by Brit herself. I am always amazed by her attention to detail by not only creating a beautiful pattern fabric but by the way the fluorescent lining reflects and complements and contrasts the skirt perfectly.
Look 3: Taking the little black dress to the next level by drawing your eye to an asymmetrical shape that flatters the female form. The contrast between the lighter print offset by the dark fabric in the dress jacket grounds this look to make a powerful statement.
Look 4: The billowing fabric used to create the flared button-up shirt and wide legs beautifully created a contemporary silhouette with complimenting separates that is both delicate yet powerful on any woman who wears it. The pop of burnt colour completes the outfit with an element of depth and dimension.
