Pigs! Punk and Magic Carpets - Korhani Fall 2012

Hands down, my favorite fashion show accessory ever ....Teacup pigs!  Korhani Home wowed the crowd at Toronto Fashion Week yesterday with a theatrical runway show.  The home decor company created fanciful looks out of their diverse collection of rugs.

The fashion show was divided into three themes.  First, an Asian pop art influenced group with Mongolian silhouettes, kimono sleeves or Kabuki makeup images.  The second carried a Venetian Carnivale theme.  Some baroque patterns, dramatic opera outfits and elaborate masks gave an air of mystique.  Third a punk themed group using tartans and houndstooth patterns for a rebellious look.  The guests went wild when they saw the tiny little piglets carried by the models.  I hope they weren't hurt by all of the studs...

It wasn't clear to me whether or not the clothing was meant to be purchased.  Or, was this a showy marketing event?  The Korhani Home brand has often portrayed its ties to fashion trends in their advertising. I suppose they found it was the time to make that association literal.
