The original Mark Nicholas Burack images you see in the Flowers Collection are available as hand signed and numbered limited edition prints and come with a Certificate of Authentication. You can also order a One-of-a-Kind version of the image you love that will never be replicated.  I shot these images in the Allen Gardens which is always worth enjoying when you visit Toronto. 

Mercedes-Benz Start Up, Canadas premiere program to discover and mentor emerging fashion designers, hosted its fourth annual National Finale group runway show taking place this past Monday October 20th, 2014 at the World Mastercard Fashion Week in downtown Toronto. Six Canadian designers went head to head for the finals, showcasing their Spring/Summer 2015 designs in the hopes of winning the coveted title of Mercedes-Benz Start Up Awarded Designer, a $30000 bursary as well as invaluable mentorship, coverage in Fashion Magazine and a solo runway at the Toronto Fall/Winter Collections 2015.

After presenting their collectons to a full house of viewers and an elite panel made up of the winner's future mentors, the judges awarded Sid Neigum with the honour of this year's Mercedes-Benz Start up Awarded Designer. This decision was not made solely based on last nights show but rather on a comprehensive process which included panel interviews, a study of his business and marketing plans and a close look at his Fall and Spring collections. Congratulations Sid!
