There is nothing worse than having sore feet. I love shoes and a don’t mind a little bit of pain, but shoes that really hurt or cause blisters are the death of me. A while back I wore a pair of shoes that I love, but they left me with a two inch blister andContinue reading

I spotted designer Karen Brost on her scooter! I love girls on scooters – maybe because it’s something I rarely saw in Toronto, but when I moved to London you see loads of scooters and even more in Barcelona. A girl with a dress, heels and zooming around London – so cool. We decided toContinue reading

One of my favourite characters is the Diva from the 5th Element. I think her costume is extraordinary and I always wished I’d met someone like her in real life. Well Bishi exceeded all my expectation – not only is she super nice but she’s extraordinary. I was able to watch her during her soundContinue reading

I love working with “New Designers” – what’s funny is most new designers aren’t all that new – it’s more that they’re just not well known (yet!). Often you meet  a designer who’s only 25 and they’ve been designing for the past 10 years. I worked on a look book shoot which went really well.Continue reading

Forward PR knows how to throw a good party – and I love a cocktail party! There were lots of delicious cocktails – Yum – Vermeer Chocolate & Rasmeers Martinis – the Martini glass gets me every time – the shape, the romance of it all! If something fruity is more your style Tapio –Continue reading

Beyoncé knows how to work the red carpet and she’s one of the few truly glamorous women of her generation. Her bold choices are often either a hit or a miss, but she wears this dress extremely well because we actually notice the girl more than the dress. Few of us could wear a canaryContinue reading

Doing a photo shoot with Olympic athletes can be great, they already have such a strong presence and are comfortable with lots of people running around; which they can just ignore and focus on the task at hand. All the athletes are sponsored by Team Visa. When you have young athletes doing there first fashionContinue reading

I love going to vintage fashion fairs. Many of the vendor have been collection and selling items for over 20 years so if you’re looking for something special just ask them.

Quilted Knee Pad leggings – I think these are quite fun & cheeky! Lindsey Lohan has signed an exclusive deal with Fred Segal stores and her leggings will be available in August. The line is called 6126 in honour of Lindsay’s idol, Marilyn Monroe’s birthday.

Fashion has become very fashionable and there’s something comforting and fun about working in a virtual world especially if your only 10 years old. I think I would have liked games like this when I was little. Fashion games for girls is a huge market so it’s just not surprising that Koei have created aContinue reading
