Orange by Angela Chen

My first invitation to Toronto Fashion Week came courtesy of Angela Chen, designer of the line OrangeNYC. Angela Chen was born in Taiwan, raised in Vancouver and graduated from the Parsons New School of Design in 2007.  If her previous collections are indicative of what I'll see in the fall/winter 2010 runway presentation, I will expect to see beautifully composed and sculpted outfits anchored in black. As an artist and writer, black is a huge staple in my wardrobe and I could see myself wearing many of the pieces from her prior collections. But I'll have to wait until March 30th to see for sure.
