Simon Chang - spring/summer 2009

One of our own has been named to the Order of Canada this year, for his lifetime of creative contributions to the fashion industry.

In addition to building a now world-famous fashion house, Simon Chang has helped thousands of women, men and children through the Simon Chang & Phyllis Levine Foundation that he founded in 1987.

This prolific honouree even had time to put together a stunning spring/summer 2009 collection.

Witness the gentle shimmer of the ice-blue sequinned top, barely visible under an A-line hook enclosure top with Nehru collar. Perhaps Chang was feeling celebratory this year, because he explodes this look into full-on glam shine with the black and silver animal print top. From pearl-drop brocade to accented black velvet, Simon Chang delivers the glitz, just as his own name goes up in lights.
