The fashiondesigners showing their collections in the Gala are members of Fashion Art Toronto (FAT). FAT is a Canadian non-profit organization whose dedication is to explore fashion and arts. The 2015 Fashions for Passions designers are Fiona Veronicaf, Garvin Garcia, Tanushree Pande, and Dianna DiNoble.

Here are the fashion designer’s comments for selecting their outfits to show on the runway.

Fiona was born South of China and studied fashion at the Seneca College in Toronto, Canada. The inspiration for her collection is by the shiny metallic flowers and the romantic song Glitter in the Air by Pink. Pink sang the song during the 52nd GRAMMY Awards, symbolizing falling in love.

And the flowers and silver sheen are to express true love and romance. These inspirations were by designers Dolce&Gabbana, Elie Saab and Chanel.

Gavarcia is brand that is the inspiration of Garvin Garcia. The haute couture line cultivates a fantasy world that often mimics a fairytale. Through Garcia’s research, studies and pure adoration for the craft, he allows itself inspiration by the European way of design, lifestyle and construction. And by bespoke womenswear, tailored garments, menswear and accessories.

The goal is to help continue the redirection of the way women perceive themselves. And in a more positive, healthy and confident manner through a traditional style and fashion. All women have insecurities. And all women deserve to be beautiful and walk with strength, power and confidence.

Gavarcia’s goal is to offer that lifestyle for women. And to bring back the romance, innocence and empowerment. So to help them achieve the ability to exude potential growth through their own personal identity.

The brand will hopefully infiltrate an old school/new age dynamic to a world that is on the edge of a fashion revitalization. And hopes to create strong and lasting relationships with the public.

Tanushree Pande is the designer and founder of Poplyn. She was born and brought up in India, with its multi cultural, colorful background and the effervescent charm. It was easy for her to fall in love with fashion with such a heritage all around her. She later move to South Africa is where the bold and cultural influences can be seen in everyday fashion.

In addition to being the force behind the House of Poplyn, Tanushree is an avid illustrator, stylist and fashion writer. Her works can be read in various online websites and print publications.

Pande’s collection RoyalPunk inspiration is from micrographs of the invisible world. And microorganisms, cells and other life forms. The collection explores art and beauty as found in life forms through experimental surface textures. Such as 3D shapes and intricate ornamentation.

Dianna DiNoble is celebrating her 22nd year with Starkers Corsetry. The Toronto designer creates corsets for her clientele worldwide. The line caters to a wide range of customer. From traditional brides and fashion trailblazers to risqué fetish lovers.

DiNoble creates themes for several types of shows. But not traditional season fashion lines. She focuses on each couture piece and the client as a whole. And she feels that women should not have to squeeze into a garment or a style. There are no dress sizes, and no two pieces are exactly the same. The focus is on creating a piece, from the pattern to its finish. And that the corset fits the client’s body and style.

The designer has done lectures at the University of Toronto and Ryerson University. And her TV appearances include Global TV News and on the Rich Bride / Poor Bride TV series. As well as in several fashion magazines.
