Booths/Markets, Installations and Open Houses: Suggestions for Canadian Designers

With Toronto Fashion Week gone, many media are suggesting that this is time for Canadian designers to start anew, to create ways to present their collections THEIR WAY, rather than a more “traditional” runway.  As a blogger, one of my favourite events at Fashion Week was the Press and Buyers’ Brunch, where designers had booths […]

Contemporary and Elegant at LaMarque’s Toronto Fashion Week Debut

LaMarque made its Toronto Fashion Week debut on Tuesday with a gorgeous, wearable collection of looks which have a bit of classical, elegant inspiration, yet still very contemporary.  These classic looks are versatile and wearable, unlike many designers who seem to aspire to shock (but at the same time are showing pieces which are not […]

Fashion Week….Burn Out?

Toronto Fashion Week starts next Monday.  Yes, it’s now “officially” called Toronto Fashion Week.   I’m looking forward to the Fall/Winter 2016 shows.  Kind of.  I don’t know.  Many of my favourites are back (though Pink Tartan is NOT showing for some reason), including Hillary MacMillian and Triarchy and Greta Constantine will be closing the week […]

Simple Elegance for the City Girl with TMR Collection

Back in September, I had the chance to attend the launch of one of Canada’s newest clothing lines, TMR Collection.  Designed by Tara Rivas, the line is versatile and has something for virtually every woman – especially an urban professional who does not have a large closet space.  Due to the neutral colours, the pieces […]

WMCFW Yays, Nays & Mehs: Spring/Summer 2016 Edition

Yes, back again with my wrap of World MasterCard Fashion Week.  And due to a crazy schedule, I did not attend many shows this season either (or, at least, not as many as I could have). Yays: Star Wars:   Loved the R2D2 shoes on display.  The Force is definitely with us. Press and Buyers’ […]

Rachel Sin Does it Again with #StayGold

So the collection only featured two gold pieces, but Rachel Sin’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection once again features simple, yet elegant classics.  With basic black, grey and white shades as well as yellow, orange and coral, the collection is perfect for many occasions, including date night, brunch with “the girls” and even the office (provided that […]

Going on a Mediterranean Vacation with Pink Tartan

Inspired by the Catalan region of Spain, the Pink Tartan’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection is filled with bright, casual pieces that give off the vibe of a fun vacation abroad.  There’s something old fashioned – perhaps taking people back to a time when air travel was a luxury – yet modern at the same time. Though […]

Delicate, Floral Looks at Mikhael Kale

The first day of World MasterCard Fashion Week included designers such as Matthew Gallagher and Sid Neigum.  However, I would have to say that the most interesting collection came from Mikhael Kale.  For Spring/Summer 2016, his pieces had, as a press release put it, “a delicate, yet highly ornate” look with an “elegant seasonal transition […]

World MasterCard Fashion Week: October 19-23

Here Comes the Cashmere Bride: Highlights from White Cashmere 2015

I’ve been covering the annual White Cashmere in support for breast cancer awareness since 2012 or so.  This year was no exception.  Hosted by Beverly Thomson and held on September 29 at the beautiful, historic Carlu on Yonge and College, the 2015 theme was centred around bridal gowns, with many of the country’s top wedding […]
