Vejas

We’ve had the pleasure of standing in a Paris Fashion Week showroom twice now with the lauded and awarded-young SPACE designer Vejas Kruszewski (no really, though; he’s just barely two decades old), and we are here to tell you that he’s one of the most easygoing yet intellectual designers we know.

If you live in Toronto and you like talking fashion, please note this date and time: March 15 from 5 to 7pm.  

Vejas and his right-hand, Saam Emme, will be at Nordstrom Toronto Eaton Centre to chat through inspiration and innovation—and your personal style and the spring ’17 collection. 

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 416.552.2900, ext. 1350.

EXPLORE: current-season emerging designers

One of the best things about Fashion Week, no matter the city, is connecting with emerging brands on their way up. The first few collections of any one career become its foundation, after all. In the case of LVMH Prize-winning designer Vejas Kruszewski, it’s a matter of “building the values of the brand.”

That’s what he told W magazine in an interview titled, in part, “Meet the Five Young Designers Shaking Up Paris Fashion Week.”

When we met up with the 19-year-old Toronto-based designer a few days after his Paris presentation, he told us that those values are futurism, abstraction and utility.
