​​Woodbine: In True Canadian Fashion

September 6, 2017

Rich with Canadian tradition, Woodbine has long hosted Toronto’s fashion-forward elite. In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, we collaborated with a host of Canadian designers to get you race-day ready.

On days when you need to be noticed, make a bold statement with a printed suit jacket. Juxtapose the formality of a bowtie with an unexpected color or pattern combination. Try a boldly printed jacket and mismatched pocket square.​​ Jacket: Ted Baker | Shirt: Christopher Bates   Look confident and refined with a wide-leg pantsuit. Balance proportions by tucking in a feminine, fitted blouse for a perfect contrast. Jacket: Kwesh | Blouse: Lucian Matis | Pants: Frascara | Fascinator: Davi​d Dunkley ​| ​​​​Purse​: Koda Nivoli​     For a retro look that is ultra-feminine, add a face-framing accessory to an off-the-shoulder neckline. Be as simple or as dramatic as you like with jewellery that complements the material, or embellishments of your gown. ​Top & skirt: Christopher Paunil | Shoes: Abel Munoz​ | Necklace: Rebekah Price | Fascinator: David Dunkley​   Channel your cavalier spirit by pairing a double-breasted suit with a dashing, lively shirt. Finally, add a touch of class with a simple, sophisticated timepiece. Jacket, pants & shirt: Christopher Bates | Watch: Paul Hewitt​​   Asymmetric lines, stark structure and ruffled details make for breathtaking pieces that define feminine luxury. Don’t be afraid to be bold!
