Check the Thompson Hotel blog for 18 Waits designer, Daniel Torjman, for his list of “Toronto musts” for Thompson Hotels.

According to Daniel, Fawn is a Toronto must and describes us as:

Fawn is a women’s clothing boutique, but it’s one of my favorite stores in Toronto. Kasha, who opened it about 6 years ago, comes from a styling background and has a killer eye and aesthetic. Her merchandising and selections are always an inspiration for me and it’s my go-to spot to send out-of-town guests when they’re looking to shop.

Thank-you Daniel for including us on your list. We’re in good company!

Art Teacher Chic – Study New York.

We love Study New York’s ikat print shirt dress which we couldn’t agree more represents what style.com dubs “Art-teacher chic”—loose tunics, big ceramic necklaces, modest shoes—which has become the go-to uniform for fashion-y women who are done with overdone.

New York-based clothing label Study, is an ethical contemporary womenswear brand produced in New York City using sustainable materials.

Study is an ethical contemporary womenswear label based in Brooklyn, NY.  Study aims to make seasonless clothing locally and ethically without subscribing to the traditional fashion calendar.  Their goal is to create the ideal wardrobe for their ideal individuals (you). Study believes the clothes we wear should be well-made using quality materials, and the hands that manipulate those materials should be respected and cared for.

Study’s 2.1 Ikat shirdress (pictured) is available in store now.

Vladimir Karaleev – Berlin Fashion Week SS14

This season, Fawn is all over Vladimir Karaleev’s SS14 collection.

Elegant and subtle, the focus is on textiles, layers and depth, and producing geometrically shaped garments.

The collection consists of combinations of white, grey and soft dusty pinks which shimmer gold when caught in the light…exactly what we’re feeling for summer.

Fawn is excited to carry Rashmi Varma’s first collection for spring summer 2014.  A dear friend of ours, it’s a collection of minimal dreamyness; a new women’s wear line that explores traditional India through a modern lens. Drawing from endless ways to drape, fold and pleat unstitched garments such as the sari, the dhoti and the odhni, Spring Summer 2014 focuses on pure materials, human hands and wearable forms.

Collaborating with artisans, the collection utilizes several hand craft techniques; khadi, chikankari and dabka embroidery which are offset by digitally printed graphics. Working with silks, cottons and jerseys in a palette of whites, blacks and reds, a sense of elegant ease pervades the collection with just the right amount of downtown edge.

Made & Crafted in India.
