I have a soft spot for Canadian design duo Greta Constantine. I loved Stephen Wong on Project Runway Canada, Kirk Pickersgill was one of my first interviews in J school (for the uninitiated that’s Journalism school), the Greta Constantine Spring 2009 fashion show was my first real fashion show, they were both born in Jamaica (part of my heritage) AND they’re extremely talented. Whew!
That being said for those who live in Toronto or Montreal and who would like to view their Fall 2010 collection or just come out and meet the boys your opportunity will be this weekend at Holt Renfrew.
Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong of Greta Constantine will be holding a trunk show at Holt Renfrew’s Bloor Street location in Toronto on June 12 and 13 from noon til 5pm and in Montreal on June 10 from 10am to 4pm where their designs, some of which will not be available in stores, will be available for pre-order.
Here are some looks from the collection.

“The formula for Fall/Winter 2009’s collection involves innovation, glamour and femininity with form and volume, which equals our distinct Greta Constantine DNA.”
