August 29, 2017 - 10:58 AM

TORONTO - Acclaimed Canadian clothing designer Sid Neigum will introduce his spring/summer 2018 collection with the help of virtual reality.

The Alberta-born designer will open this year's RE\SET 002 fashion show on Sept. 5 with an innovative take on the runway experience.

He'll also present his fall/winter 2017 collection as a see-now-buy-now show, with help from the e-commerce platform Net-a-Porter.

Other events include an onstage discussion with Canadian designer Mario Christian of Daniel Christian Tang on "The Future of Fashion" on Sept. 6.

Run by the Toronto-based production agency The Collections, the two-day show aims to create "new and innovative ways to adapt and disrupt the ever-changing fashion runway experience."

It runs at the same time as a revamped, three-day Toronto Fashion Week, which kicks off Sept. 5.

Big draws there include Pink Tartan and Lucian Matis, as well as a panel talk featuring Jean-Paul Gaultier.
