Sweater Dresses: Comfortable, Cozy and Great for Fall

I’ve meant to post these for a while, but other events, such as Diner en Blanc and New York Fashion Week have taken priority. But now that it’s officially fall, I really should post something on one of my favourite fall/winter staples – the sweater dress.  I think I have at least three or four […]

Lucian Matis Loot from the Pop-Up Shop at Shops at Don Mills

On Sunday, I made an impromptu brunch trip up to Shops at Don Mills after hearing about the Heart of Fashion pop-up shop, that was in support of North York General Hospital’s women’s mental health programs.  Heart of Fashion was a fashion show/shopping event held at Shops at Don Mills on November 2.  Some of […]

Elle Canada’s Fashioniesta: Cars, Food, Shopping and Beauty!

Last week, I had went to Elle Canada’s style/meet-and-greet designers event at the Fermenting Cellar at Toronto’s Distillery District.  The event, called FashionIESTA (the event was a partnership with the 2014 Ford Fiesta) featured a bit of shopping, as well as a panel where Elle Canada’s editor-in-chief featuring some of Canada’s most well-known designers – […]

Black, Grey, White and Baileys Irish Cream at Lucian Matis

Lucian Matis presented his “main” collection off-site at the gorgeous One King West Hotel and Residence on March 22.  The event, which was sponsored in part by Baileys Irish Cream, kicked off with cocktails where guests mingled while sipping three drinks made from the product and nibbled on appetizers such as mini cheesecakes before being […]

Call of the Preppy Wild at Matis by Lucian Matis

This Project Runway Canada alum’s more “casual” line is always a show that I look forward to in Toronto.  Not only are prices more affordable than his “main” line, but the pieces definitely have more use…for the every day woman, anyway.  As usual, the collection is filled with looks that are appropriate for many occasions, […]

Bright Colours and Wearability at Lucian Matis

For the first time, Lucian Matis showed both his “signature” (Lucian Matis) and “contemporary” (Matis by Lucian Matis) lines at World MasterCard Fashion Week.  The past few seasons saw Matis show his couture line outside of “main” Fashion Week.  Last season, for example was presented on the first day outside of the main World MasterCard […]

World MasterCard Fashion Week Day 3 Highlights

Project Runway Canada alumnus Lucian Matis presented both his couture namesake collection as well as his ready-to-wear pieces Matis by Lucian Matis (more on that later).  Other designers today include Whitney Linen (a line of linen apparel with gorgeous pale colours, perfect for warm weather) Mackage and of course, the much-loved Joe Fresh (with the […]

Toronto Fashion Week A.I.N.I. (Amazing, Interesting and Needs Improvement)

Now that official Toronto Fashion Week has wrapped, it’s yet again, time to summarize what was good, what was so-so and what was well, not-so-good.   This season, I am calling it A.I.N.I (Amazing, Interesting and Needs Improvement).  As with last season, I loved the space.  Having tents in the core of the city, close to […]

What I Wore at Toronto Fashion Week: A Week of Outfit Pics

I decided to post my week’s worth of Fashion Week outfits in one post rather than separate “Outfit of the Day” articles that everyone else seemed to be doing.  As usual, there was a lot of emphasis on wearing Canadian brands, so every day, I tried to incorporate at least ONE Canadian designer or brand […]

Lucian Matis Reception and Show at the Royal York

The very first show of the week was Lucian Matis, held at the Royal York Hotel.  However, before the presentation, attendees were treated to a reception of sparkling wine and hors d’oeuvres (the food was not too bad, albeit a little on the brown side).  One of the sponsors, Smashbox, was there to give lip […]
