I'm really excited about this! Urban Capital is organizing a series of interactive lectures to discuss the evolution of design. For the next couple of months a series of five lectures regarding design trends in the city building, architecture, fashion, interior design and industrial design will take place in Ottawa and Toronto.

The schedule for the five lectures are as followed:

NIGHT 2 | OCT 28 2010

The lectures are open to the public and tickets are available for purchase at Urban Capital and the proceed will go to support Philip Beesley’s Hylozoic Ground, Canada’s entry to the Venice Biennale 2010. Of course I have to go. I'm looking forward to see this.

The first lecture will take place at Shad Boutique (512 Sussex Drive) where senior editor Lara Ceroni for ElleCanada.com will talk about the trends in fashion and where it's going, followed by a Fall/Winter 2010 fashion show. It will be interesting to see if what's presented during the show follows the fashion trend forecast for fall/winter 2010-2011 as per Cosmoworlds. The four themes for the upcoming seasons are "Body performance", "Trady Twist","Rustic Root", "Dark Poetry".

Body Performance : A ballet dancer style express by skintone palettes with fleshy tones, plastery pastels ans talcy mauves with some tonic accents, luminous coral, and graphic contrast of black and white.

Rustic Roots: The range of green is omnipresent complete by two industrials colors: grayed and pinkish cement. A palette of autumn reds with different grape tones. The accent is on materials associating rusticity and refinement: compact or boiled wools, tweeded flannels, quilted linig and patches and sportswear fabrics like cotton/polyalide foamback.
