Spotlight: 10 travel must-haves

With Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week coming up, many faces in the fashion world flock to Berlin.

Creative Director Kirsten Korhani tells us the top 10 items in her carry-on:

  • evian mineral water spray – refresh dry skin up in the air.
  • Sleeping mask – get some shut-eye on the plane.
  • Retinal capsules – mix with lotion to combat puffiness.
  • Cashmere sweater – stay warm (for those of us who get cold easily).
  • Schumacher scarf – instantly dress-up an outfit on the fly.
  • CLIF bar – skip the airplane food? Don’t go hungry.
  • Chanel Hydramask – rejuvinates your skin after hours of travel.
  • Novel by Elizabeth George – cure boredom by reading.
  • Dark sunglasses – cover your eyes if you haven’t gotten much sleep.
  • iPod – listen to music while napping.

Fashion Week: see you in Berlin

Berlin Fashion Week is fast approaching (January 15 – 18). For the first time, KORHANI will be showing during this fashion-packed week.

Thursday January 17 promises a day full of action. One of Kirsten Korhani’s favourite German designers, Dorothee Schumacher, starts off the day at 10 a.m. with her runway show. Schumacher is known for playful, feminine and daring designs with unconventional material combinations.

Across the courtyard, KORHANI has an off-site show at 7 p.m. Carpet couture collections French Affair and Puttin’ on the Ritz will be shown as well as a sneak peek at a mystery Fall 2013 theme.

Hugo Boss finishes off the day with a bang with an off-site show and after party.

Even though Fashion Week is about the clothes on the runway (or should be), the question that’s sure to pop-up is, “What celebrities will be sitting in the front row?” Followed by, “What are they wearing?”

See you in Berlin.

Mongolian Snow

KORHANI home’s Mongolian collection is in stores and perfect for the holidays. Sexy, full of colour and pattern and beautiful. Inspired by the Mongolian landscape, traditional patterns and the culture, this collection will impress all your guests!

Mongolian winters can be like our Canadian winters. The people who live in the mountains layer their clothes, walls and floors to keep warm.

David Pecaut Square becomes the most Fashionable Environment

Toronto kicks off fashion week today with over 30 000 square feet of tent space and a 100 ft catwalk in the main room. With each show expecting 900 guests, the Fashion Environment has been spectacularly designed to entertain those anticipating the coming shows. KORHANI home sponsors MasterCard Fashion Week again this season with  an exclusive media carpet, welcoming each and every attendee who comes to spectate what talent Canada has to offer.

 

This year’s Fashionable attendees show off their best looks, passing by MasterCard Fashion Week’s banner.

The tents erected at David Pecaut Square, an amazing location in the heart of Downtown’s fashion district. Surrounded by lights, resultants, theaters, cinemas and clubs, the central spot could not have been more appropriate!
