Canadian designer Dennis Merotto, a Reia Studio partner, has been making waves with his Spring Summer 2012 collection, featured at Toronto Fashion Week in October 2011. Magazines, print and online alike, can't seem to get enough of his clean, easy and sophisticated design aesthetic. Here's a selection of what people are loving and saying about Dennis Merotto.
“Dennis used a lot of yellow for this spring 2012 collection in flowing tops, and relaxed bottoms. He took this beaming color and used it to color block some of this season’s most salable pieces. He is one of the only designers who can cut a perfect flowing bias cut frill. Honestly, this collection was impressive and possibly one of the most salable in the Holts runway presentation.”
“Like a back-up singer finally taking centre stage, Dennis Merotto’s time has finally come. After 25 years in the Canadian fashion business, most notably as senior designer for Lida Baday, Merotto has brought his wealth of experience and understanding to his eponymous line, giving women luxurious, chic options for work, travel and play. The overall look is clean, minimalist and expertly tailored, with to-die-for tees, dresses and jackets which, like the designer himself, shine in their subtlety.”
