Wayne Clark at The Bay

What is it about famous Canadians and the name "Wayne"?

There's Wayne Gretzky,* Wayne's World, and I was just reminded of Wayne Clark, a designer that Kate Betts @KateBetts mentioned during her generous and enthusiastic day of Tweeting her visit to The Room at The Bay, Toronto's fabled clothes shop.

She likens his designs to Oscar de le Renta, and indeed he does make cocktail and evening wear that's very ladylike and formal. Above is a rather noir-ish look by Clark.

Thanks, Ms. Betts, for promoting a Canadian designer.
