SEOUL FASHION WEEK

I can officially tick off that I have attended fashion shows on an international stage. Where you ask? Seoul, South Korea for HERA SEOUL FASHION WEEK! AHH! Dongdaemun Design Plaza, where SFW took place, is one of the coolest buildings in Seoul. It has a modern, architectural design and is absolutely massive on the inside. You can see just how big it is from the photo above, I look so little in comparison. I went on behalf of FASHION Magazine and was floored at the incredible talent from the designers, makeup artists, hair stylists.. and the fact that I got to sit front row (name on seat and all) at one of the shows. This may not be a big deal to many but, seeing my name on a front row seat gave me a sense of, I made it. You best believe I kept that little piece of paper, as it will remind me of the first of many shows around the world I hope to attend in the future. 😉 There were crowds of stylish people surrounding the area, some waiting …

5 TIPS FOR THRIFT SHOPPING ROOKIES

Thrift shopping is not for the faint of heart. If you can handle finding mothballs in a trench coat, immune to musty stenches, and find amusement in discovering denim with bus transfers from 1995 in the pocket, you are well on your way! A thrift shopping veteran will know exactly where to look when searching for trendy pieces in a large pile of clothing. It’s a talent, I swear. If you don’t know where to begin (rookie status), I’ve created five tips that will hopefully make you feel less overwhelmed, help curate which pieces to splurge on and which to leave behind and give you an idea on how to put an outfit together that looks like you spent way more than you actually did. Don’t worry, it will be our little secret. Location, location, location Where you shop, matters! Those who donate their clothing will drop it off at their nearest Goodwill or Salvation Army. If you want to find brand name items like Chanel, Marc Jacobs or Burberry, go to the ritzy part …

INLAND: THE #MADEINCANADA CURATED MARKETPLACE

Look in your closet. How many pieces from your wardrobe could you confidently say, “this is made in Canada!” If you’re the average male or female living in a fast-fashion retail world,  you’re probably asking if the knit sweater your grandma made you years ago counts. As Canadians, we could do better when it comes to buying locally. Not only do we support the economy when purchasing “Made In Canada” merch, but we’re also supporting talented designers who live right here in our country/city/the neighbour you never see because they’re too busy building their fashion empire. Fashion entrepreneur, Sarah Power, has figured out a way to provide more opportunities for these Canadian designers to take their collections to the market. Cue: INLAND. INLAND is a platform for Canada’s contemporary and up-and-coming fashion designers to connect directly with shoppers and retail buyers. The two-day event on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 26 & 27, encourages consumers to not only shop Canadian, but discover emerging talents and meet the designers behind the collections. If you’re attending the event and wondering what you can purchase, I’ve rounded up some …

Stain Resistant T-Shirt Put To The Test

For those prone to food-related spills and accidents, your embarrassing stain-on-clothing-days may be over thanks to the subtle wearable tech innovation of Threadsmiths! The Australian clothing company has created a stain-resistant t-shirt using a patented hydrophobic nanotechnology. When the surface gets wet, water droplets are created just like it does on a lotus leaf or a blade of grass. This is known as surface tension – liquid resists an external form. It’s hard to believe a t-shirt could contain these properties so, we tested it for ourselves. As the first company in the world to be making 100% cotton t-shirts that completely repel dirt and liquids, we took a Threadsmiths shirt and drizzled common food items on it such as water, jam, orange juice and BBQ sauce. What happened next was to our amazement. While other white t-shirts soak in liquids and stain, these shirts dubbed “The Cavalier,” uses hydrophobic properties causing liquids to bead-up and fall off the fabric. A very true statement. As you can see from the example below, the water droplets didn’t soak into …

CONDE NAST’S YOUNGEST EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Fan girl moment. Had to share this video by Forbes who interviewed my idol Eva Chen. She speaks the truth of what it’s REALLY like to work in the fashion and magazine industry. Couldn’t have put it better myself. “There are aspects of it that are more glamorous that comes in bursts, they’re like exclamation points when the rest of the sentence is pretty much what you expect.”
