Rocker Chick Fringes at Rebecca Minkoff

Rebecca Minkoff’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection, presented on Friday, is about the rocker chick fringe.  From the tall boots to jackets and more, it was in almost every look going down that runway.  Really, the only thing missing were models carrying guitars with them as they walked. While the pieces can be a little young – […]

Hervé Leger by Max Azria: Asian Gold!

Spring/Summer 2015 for Hervé Leger seems to mean East Asia and gold sequins, while at the same time, not moving away from the line’s signature bodycon looks.  The show started out with a few dresses that had short, but kimono-inspired sleeves which I liked (though it could be a little bit overwhelming on certain sizes), […]

Online Petite-Friendly Shop: Adela Mei

Adela Mei, run by Stacy Leung and Sasha Moyer, is a California-based, online boutique with a very special focus – petite women under 5’4″.  While their pieces are, for the most part, NOT petite-exclusive (as in the clothes are not petite sized), the aim for Adela Mei is to be a one stop (or rather, […]

Anu Raina: Birds and the City

Gimmicky and tacky are two adjectives one thinks of when they hear that a designer is showing a collection filled with city maps and skylines.  However, this was not the case for Anu Raina’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection, which is filled with desk to dinner-appropriate pieces.  In fact, other than a few obvious pieces (such as […]

Matière Noire and Malorie Urbanovitch: A Contrast

Last season, for the first time ever, two winners were crowned winners of the Mercedes-Benz Start-up competition, a Canada-wide program which gives young, up-and-coming designers a chance to elevate their brand through networking, working with “industry insiders” and more.  Each year, finalists are invited to present in October for the chance to show a fuller […]

Warm Tones, Feminininity and a Sleek Presentation at Nanette Lepore

Unlike other designers, Nanette Lepore’s models did not look like walking trees or bushes with dark leaves – few of the models were bulked up with big, round layers on top, while wearing sleek, form-fitting skirts or pants.  Many of the shows, especially from designers who target younger market featured this kind of styling – […]

Lands’ End Launches Canadian Pricing Online

Family-friendly clothing line, Lands’ End launched its Canadian pricing site last Wednesday.  Not only will it be shipping to Canada, but prices will also be listed in Canadian dollars.  To celebrate the launch, an event featuring its latest looks was held at The Fifth Social Club on Richmond and University where media had the chance […]

J.Crew Spring/Summer 2014: Mix of Wearable and Shapeless Looks

Like many brands, J.Crew always creates very interesting, slightly edgier looks for their Collection line, and the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 collection is no different.  According to a briefing, the collection was inspired by two stories, one of surfing at a California beach and another influenced by the “lido lifestyle of the Venetian coast” – think […]

Gambita: One Stop Online Shopping for Petites

Recently, I had the chance to speak with Caroline Misan Alvo, founder of Gambita, an online store for petite women.  The website, which launched just this past January, after she left her job in the non-profit sector, is a play on being tiny – “gambita” means “little shrimp” in Spanish.  At 4’9″, Caroline’s fashion woes […]

Milly by Michelle Spring/Summer 2013

Featuring models decked out with huge goggles as glasses (something that was also featured at the Michael Kors show earlier in the day), Milly by Michelle continued to dazzle the young, fashionable crowd with a collection of dresses (many of them body-hugging) and separates filled with colourful, warm weather-ready pieces.  The palette this season includes […]
