With love as the focus of this collection the designer incorporates a unique print featuring a watercolour lip print produced in various fabrications and pink tones.
Hilary MacMillan is a Toronto based womenswear designer. Her self-titled brand was founded early 2012 with a focus on creating wearable designs for the urban modern woman. The Hilary MacMillan woman appreciates a well-designed piece made of luxurious fabrics:
wools, silks, leather, furs, and cottons. She has effortless style, a desire for exclusivity, and a modern femininity.
Hilary MacMillan focuses on Canadian-manufactured pieces and for fall 2016, MacMillan rebranded her label as a cruelty-free and animal-friendly line, free of leathers or fur. Last night on the runway, there were many shades of blush pink were a key look on everything from ladylike pantsuits to a long-sleeved flowing jumpsuit. Faux fur vests and a signature watercolour print were the key factors on her collection.
