If you're thinking, "I so don't need another leather jacket, or bag." You're wrong. You don't want to miss the fashion forward pieces from this year's talented student designers, mixed fabrications, brilliant jewel tones and interesting textures.
Permission to splurge starts now. Here are my favourites from fall 2012.
Winning designs from Ryerson's Danier design challenge
Biker style in cognac made plush with a fur accessory
Too cool for school bomber jacket with quilted sleeves
Back with more great accessories
Cowl neck jacket with laser cut panels (pic doesn't do it justice!)
Animal print pony hair bags in great silhouettes
Classic belted 3/4 wool coat with leather accents
Luxe embossed croc
As always, the leather is buttery and ability for these items to follow you home is very high. See for yourself with a visit to Danier stores across the GTA starting late August or
drool shop online.
