Aleks Susak Opens Toronto Summer Showroom

Canadian designer, Aleks Susak, has officially opened her Toronto summer showroom featuring latest pieces from The Silk Collection. Also, luxury leather handbags will be introduced featuring gold leaf embellishments and hand-painted motifs.

The Silk Collection is a luxury line of hand painted silk garments that are unique and one-of-a-kind. Inspired by the rich history of silk fabric, it is a fusion of traditional artisanry combined with modern design. Each piece within the collection is created in a careful multi-step process, where the fabric is first cut to shape, individually painted and then hand sewn with immaculate attention to detail. An expression of individuality, The Silk Collection represents style that embodies beauty, femininity and timeless elegance.

Launched in 2014, Creative Director, Aleks Susak, designs and produces ready-to-wear pieces specializing in luxury silk garments that are made-to-measure, hand-painted, and one-of-a-kind. Aleks combines traditional cuts with modern fabrics. One of the most recognizable aspects of Aleks’s work is the ongoing mix of art and fashion, as well as traditional artisanship, where hand crafted elements are present in almost every collection.

The showroom is located 247 Macpherson Avenue, Unit 105.

Winter Fairy Tale

Another memorable runway show is in store for designer Aleks Susak. Last year, I attended the launch of her signature collection and was blown away by the intricacy in the detail work and her hand painted pieces. Next week, the Toronto based former model will host an exclusive fashion presentation at a private residence to present her FW16 line. Not only will attendees have the opportunity to see the entire collection in a very chic salon setting but can also shop the collection and her special edition dresses, caftans, skirts and more after the show.

The final details are in the works from model castings to fittings but this fabulous gal was able to take some time from her packed schedule and sit down with me.

MC: How do you feel now preparing your second show compared to last year?

AS: Last year was my debut collection so I was quite excited but everything was also new to me. Even with my modelling experience, being on “the other side” is much different, but the past year has given me quite a bit of practice.

MC: Give us some more insight to the unique setting for your FW16 presentation.

AS: I decided to show my Fall/Winter 2015 collection in season and in a more private setting for my clientele. The nature of the collection is quite warm and cozy, so I thought to do a salon-style show in a private residence, much like the shows that were done by Chanel and Dior in the 1930s-40s.

MC: Your fabric selections from the signature line were out of this world. Can you share some details about the FW selections?

AS: I chose fabrics that are woven wool and cotton pieces in a variety of colours. There are also hand woven mesh tops with interesting accents and designs from nature. The whole collection is quite bright. Winter is cold and grey and I wanted to create something that contrasts that.

MC: How was your design process like for this collection?

AS: I began creating this collection almost immediately after my debut show. I already had ideas to create a winter-like fairytale. The pieces are very feminine, bright and suitable for both day and evening wear.

MC: 2016 is just around the corner and we would love to hear about future goals for next year.

AS: Next season, I plan to continue creating silk and velvet hand painted pieces for spring, as well as a few one-of-a-kind dresses. The Fall/Winter 2016 collection is also in process, but secret for the moment.
