The words, “Ladylike layers, with interest” instantly came to mind as models marched down the runway in the latest looks by Toronto design veteran, Joeffer Caoc. Smart tweed jackets with nipped in waists were paired with tulip skirts to match. Sound conservative? It wasn’t. Asymmetrical-hemmed sequin tops were worn underneath, black leather was used as an accent, and fur was worn as a belt. Ladies who lunch just got a little sassier.
