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 […]

The Great Equestrian Life at Triarchy

I don’t know why I have yet to purchase Triarchy jeans because they are TOTALLY my thing!  While I have only been on a horse once in my life (other than wooden ones) and never really read equestrian books growing up (what kind of preppy girl am I?), I’ve always had a fondness for the […]

Joe Fresh: Faux Fur and a Little Stylin’ for Fall

Joe Fresh has changed.  When it first launched, it was full of basics – very “normcore” as one might call it in 2014 and very suburban family.  It was “Minivan Life.”  Of course, what would one expect from a line of clothing that could be purchased from a grocery chain?  Fast forward to 2014 and […]

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 […]

Mikhael Kale: Rocker Chick and Folding Napkins

The tents may have been freezing, but World MasterCard Fashion Week kicked off yesterday afternoon with Mikhael Kale’s show in the studio space.  The collection was full of ruffly embellishments, inspired napkins, as well as metals (the napkin ring).  In many ways, it was also a little bit “rocker chick.”   The colours were a […]

Maison Matthew Gallagher: Channelling the Riviera

Judging from the sophisticated, elegant looks, it’s hard to believe that Matthew Gallagher is still in his 20s.  His sophomore season at World MasterCard Fashion Week, once again, this collection is not for the 20-something party girl.  Inspired by the Italian Riviera, there was also a hint of Grace Kelly (Grace Kelly was hinted last […]

Handsome Girls, Rockers and Boho Chic with Beaufille

Designing siblings Chloé and Parris Gordon have been gracing the tents of World MasterCard Fashion Week/LG Fashion Week for several seasons with their line, Chloé comme parris has rebranded.  Their new line, called Beaufille (“handsome girl”) launched at World MasterCard Fashion Week yesterday, opening the Spring/Summer 2014 shows.  The press release said that the upcoming […]

Tips on What to Wear to World MasterCard Fashion Week

World MasterCard Fashion Week is upon us and I am sure many Toronto area bloggers and other fashionistas are spending the weekend deciding what to wear for the entire week.  My tip?  BE  COMFORTABLE!  Yes, it’s great to wear attention-grabbing clothes to grab a street style photographer’s attention, but most of the time, the outfits […]

Fashion Week: The Amazing, Interesting and Needs Improvement – Fall 2013 Edition

Yes, it’s time once again.  This was my ninth time  covering Toronto Fashion Week (I say Toronto Fashion Week because it’s been under several brands since I started back in 2009, ranging from L’Oreal to LG and now, World MasterCard), and each time, there were hits and misses.  So here we go with what I […]
