It’s New York Fashion Week and I Don’t Care…

In fact, I have no plans to watch anything they’re streaming.  I just don’t seem to care anymore.  It’s not that I don’t like clothing or because I feel like the styles don’t apply to me, it’s just that it’s not something I’m not interested in writing much about anymore.  I feel like my posts […]

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 […]

Should Fashion Week Re-shift Season Focus?

Using the current model, fashion weeks in pretty much ALL MARKETS show clothing which won’t be available for months – typically showings are held approximately four or five months before pieces hit the market.  In other words, it has not caught up with social media.  And since every single fashion publication is on social, most […]

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 […]

Happy Fifth Birthday, DelectablyChic!

Today is my birthday.  Incidently, it is also DelectablyChic!‘s birthday.  Five years ago today, the two year old Prospere Magazine became DelectablyChic!.  Though there were a couple of posts which went live before September 1, 2010, the first “official” post was a restaurant review of Cantine, located on Avenue Road, just north of Bloor. What […]

Tacky Dressing: Nothing But Attention Grabbing Weirdness

I am not pleased with the state of how people dress these days.  I know that many feel that one should wear whatever he/she wants whenever, but sometimes, rules ARE needed.  I’m sorry, but what some people wear at fashion events is nothing but attention grabbing and often, I feel like photographers and media take […]

France’s BMI Requirement for Models Should be About Proportion

The French government recently passed legislation which mandates a minimum BMI requirement for models.  The BMI must be 18.  Casting directors, designers, agencies and anyone else involved in the fashion industry who do not comply can face a charge of €75,000 (about $82,417 US) and six months in prison.  While this will reduce the number […]

Toronto Fashion Week and the One of a Kind Show
