nada yousif ss 2009

Nada Yousif showed her punky, colourful, and very New York spring/summer collection today @ the Runway at Toronto L’oreal Fashion Week.  Pairing racerback tanks with full skirts alluded back to last year’s looks, but seemed appropriate for a streetwear feel.  The girls were sporting faux hawks, studded belts slung around their shoulders and sunnies fit for a rockstar, which looked quite cute against their girly outfits.  I have to say, the fringed skirts worked quite well without seeming too obviously 20’s flapperish.

As soon as the show ended, I said to a fellow fashion writer, “That would have done well in New York – not so much here…,” echoed by the “I ❤ NY” emblazoned on the back of a white tank.
