#FAT2016: “Toronto designer, artist and photographer Marie Copps has been featured internationally, with her evening gowns making an appearance in Czech beauty pageants. On the FAT catwalk, Copps unveiled her eponymous label’s new “She’s A Queen” collection, which was fittingly inspired by royalty. Models dazzled on the runway in iridescent gowns with mermaid hems and embellishment. Meanwhile, oversized statement headpieces, brilliant jewel tones and lace bodices brought the allure of royalty to the catwalk.” -
