LG Fashion Week Round 4

GLASS Magazine

I'm very happy to announce I've been hired as the managing editor at a brand new independent Canadian publication. The first issue of GLASS magazine will be 120 pages, consisting mostly of creative beauty and fashion editorials, with a small chunk of written pieces at the front. The printer is at this very moment working away to get our 4000 copies ready for store shelves; GLASS will be available in just under a month and will be distributed nationally. A list of places to find it will be available soon: until then, keep your eyes peeled!

We had our launch party on the fourth night of fashion week at the Roosevelt Room: here's what I wore.

knit tank and pleated silk skirt: H+M, necklace: Nouvelle Nouvelle, shoes: Sam Edelman, 
turban: vintage, bag: Alexander Wang

Backstage at Sarah Stevenson

My last day at fashion week was spent chasing down models and steaming scarves for Sarah Stevenson, a lovely up-and-coming local designer. The collection was fantastic, and the experience was even better.

Using silks and heavy black wools, Sarah created a cohesive, wearable collection that had me swooning. The patterns, which Sarah designs herself, ranged from colourful acid-washes to gorgeous florals,  which were actually falling leaves when inspected closely. A collaboration with Eliza Kozurno, a gothic jewelry designer, added a sharper edge to the looks. The result was a collection fit for fairies.

Here's what I saw:

 Oh yah, keep this between Shoe and I?
