Toronto-based fashion designer Cara Cheung's SS2013 collection showcases dresses with subtle yet effective fringe embellishments. The strips of fringe may not be clearly noticeable at first glance, but the small strips make bold fashion statements for those who have an eye for detail. The fluttery strips along hemlines automatically infuse a care-free and lively aura to even the most tight-fitted and basic-cut dresses: perfect for the lady who is boldly chic and also fun-loving.

Fringe is often overdone, giving off a flapper-esque or Western look, but this collection proves that when used sparingly, fringe can be completely contemporary. The dresses keep up with the current fad of geometric shapes with a hint of tribal, while incorporating the popular 70s evening look in a revamped way. The dresses pay tribute to the past, but their modern prints and colors could not have been worn in any other era than now.
