Sid Neigum at Toronto Fashion Week
SID NEIGUM is a conceptual, interdisciplinary womenswear label merging the mathematical and the artisanal, the maximal and the minimal. Born in Alberta and based in Toronto, Sid Neigum was educated at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and interned at Yigal Azrouël.
Since presenting his first collection at Toronto Fashion Week in Toronto in March 2011, SID NEIGUM has experienced unprecedented growth and received numerous accolades, including the 25th anniversary Toronto Fashion Incubator New Labels award, the Mercedes-Benz Start Up competition, and the Swarovski award for emerging talent in fashion at the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards.
SID NEIGUM has been featured in The Business of Fashion, Women’s Wear Daily, vogue.it and ELLE Canada and has been worn by Coco Rocha, Jennifer Aniston and Jada Pinkett Smith. Having won every major national award for emerging fashion designers, Neigum has set his sights internationally. In 2015, he was selected to participate in the British Fashion Council’s Next in Line exhibition, On STAGE by Milano Unica and The Woolmark Company, and has been selected as a finalist for the DHL Exported Competition for London Fashion Week.
Valuing innovation, experimentation and quality, Neigum uses premium Italian fabrics and produces his collection entirely in-house in Toronto. He has incorporated the golden ratio, Fibonacci sequence, fractals, tessellations and modular origami into his designs, and harnesses technology to bring them to life.
Toronto Fashion Week
As the nation’s leading fashion event, Toronto Fashion Week focuses on propelling Canadian designers to the forefront of the global fashion arena. Established and emerging designers take the stage in front of an audience made up of international media and industry professionals to debut their newest collections. Serving as an anchor, this twice annual event provides a physical platform to a year-round road map. Beyond the shows, Toronto Fashion Week is the nexus of style, culture, entertainment and beyond in Toronto. Capturing the international sensibility of the city (and its residents) as well as curating a calendar of social activities where runway meets retail and influencers can celebrate the diversity of this happening metropolis.
