Went Garbage Can Looking

New Blog Design Coming

I use SquareSpace.  

If WordPress and SquareSpace got into a fight, for sure SquareSpace would win.  Blogger and the others wouldn’t even bother to show up.

Exploring Fashion Week

– and here to see who branded this entire event… Jody!

LG Fashion Week is a big deal here in Toronto, and this year for the closing gala show Hoax Couture (one of Canada’s oldest and most prestigious fashion houses) got together with the Stephen Lewis Foundation to raise money for those suffering with AIDS in Africa.

25 of Canada’s top fashion designers created 25 couture pieces from fabric found in Africa. The support for this event was huge and many of Canada’s biggest names turned out to lend a hand including Brian Bailey who’s so great… like, he could give you the worst news ever and you’d still wanna hug him. 

Via Rail’s new uniforms are looking good eh.  And it was funny to run into my hairdresser Brennen Demelo even though I shouldn’t have been surprised at all he was in charge of all the hair. 

The models in the show were real people, in order of appearance:

– a nice model
– major CDN R&B singer Jully Black
Jessi Cruickshank from MTV Canada
– MP Olivia Chow
Traci Melchor from eTalk, wearing Hoax’s creation

… looking great, ladies!
