L'Oreal Fashion Week: Fashion for Breakfast

This St. Patrick’s Day marks the convergence of several fashion factors: French shoe designer Pierre Hardy’s capsule collection for Gap European Editions arrives in select Canadian Gap stores (on a two-week delay from the U.S. delivery) and Day One of L’Oreal Fashion Week, showing the fall/winter collections of designers from across Canada. By another lucky coincidence, leprechaun green -- as in both eco and the shade, is hot hot hot (as the style-speak goes). Project Runway Canada bad-boy Evan Biddell is the first show this afternoon.

NEW DELHI: India's Rs 270 crore and growing fashion design industry is now seen as a role model by countries like Ethiopia, which is nowhere on the global fashion radar and hence keen to emulate its growth and success.

That all sounds rather heart-warming, but fashion can always be counted on to be fickle, and this season she has excelled herself.
