65 Million Refugees Need your Help: The Pin Project

This week’s post is a little different; however, it’s an issue that needs to be highlighted. As of June 2016, there are more than 65 million refugees! 65 million people who have been displaced from their homes, lost everything they know and hold dear. They live off monthly cash assistance from the United Nations Refugee Agency. Despite everything, these people are willing to work but the lack of freedom denies them to do so. Muna, […]

Erdem x H&M: Pieces that are Bound to Sell Out

Every year, with much anticipation, H&M collaborates with high fashion designers to create a limited edition collection sold at a fraction of the price. This year is no different with the Erdem x H&M collection with London Fashion Week favourite Erdem Moralioglu. You may recall the mayhem that ensued with the Balmain x H&M collection which sold out within minutes. This year I can expect the same, with people lining up the night before and […]

Innovative Designers at the Inland Show

Every time I walk into this building I’m amazed by the architecture and all the natural light the architect has allowed flowing through. Thus, it’s an apt place to hold a fashion design exhibition supporting different style designers that are all made in Canada. Welcome to the fall Inland show.

What a way to support local talent! I’m invested in purchasing local […]
