Toni Lyn Spaziano is a lot more than just a fashion designer – among other things, she’s also a passionate advocate and fundraiser for disabled children. Her line, Chances R Designs, is named after a little person named Chance who inspired Toni to work past her own fears and take the chance to follow her dreams. (A portion of the proceeds from Chances R go to Team Chance, which funds a summer camp for disabled kids.)
Toni’s Fall/Winter 2013 show will be her third at StyleWeek, having debuted her line at last January’s event. “This show will be a lot more luxe,” she says. “This season Chances R Designs is combining high-end leathers with signature tweeds and bouclés for an edgy-meets-sophisticated juxtaposition.” Expect to see a balance of Toni’s classic, polished looks and a rock and roll edge: blacks and browns will be offset by soft peach and blush tones.
Chances R Designs are already available at boutiques along the East Coast, but this spring, Toni’s clothing will also be available in California. It’s exciting not only professionally, but because that’s the place Chance himself calls home. Toni Lyn Spaziano will be presenting Chances R Design at 9pm on Friday, February 1, at the Providence Biltmore.
