This work/play adventure to New York has been . . . mostly play. Jeff and I (with our lovely host, Kelly) have, for the most part, been eating, drinking and singing the first 3 bars of every Whitney Houston song ever recorded. In terms of Fashion Week, I've been laying pretty low.
I did, however, get a bit of work done on Sunday morning. I shot the Jeremy Laing show for Toronto Life, both backstage and out front at the lovely Metropolitan Pavilion. Jeremy is a Canadian designer and something of a wunderkind at home. His stuff is always textural and layered, making you want to get in there and touch it. His collection was muted, where colour's concerned, but all big shapes and exaggerated proportions. This go-round the clothes were more mature and moneyed, elegant without losing any of his trademark flounce. And it's always fun to be in a room full of Canadians in the middle of Manhattan.
