model citizen

One dresser for every model and Taryn Davidson was all mine.
Ethereally beautiful and oh so sweet, would you believe she has small feet?

lara! everybody missed you... we had a supplementary Vincent backstage to tide us over, sibling senior and everybodys favortie camera man tagged along to take some photos. See a sample of skilled works below.

did you hear? bums are making a comeback.

all in a week's work

As Toronto Fashion Week comes to an end, I must say, it was wonderful to see you after so long, drink bad coffee and have you turn my parenthesis into commas and magically make it make sense. You are the best company in the cold, and tuck a tie in so well, and thanks to you for giving me the gig.

now everybody get some sleep and soak your feet.

Tyler Brûle (the man behind the influential and awesome Wallpaper magazine)

Q : Which one is a Winnipeger?

A: magnificent magazine founder

Part of the week's purpose is to remind us of our homegrown talents. Shake out some of that self-hating Canadian attitude that follows electing a conservative leader and consuming too much maple syrup.

One of my new favorties from the week - morales

yesterday was one of those days i needed,
sometimes i forget how magical new york can be.
started off by going to an imitation of christ sample sale in soho which i followed with books and coffee at this cute independent books store before getting caught in a thunderstorm and running home with my head down i bumped into my neighbor who invited me to our roof top masquerade party while living at the chelsea hotel i have meet some interesting bohemians i had a feeling that at this party i would be meeting many more....
this is a shot of the ceiling on the top floor of the chelsea
this masked man is sam bassett he's the roof top owning party thrower who is one of the bohemians i was talking about

my roomate man-lai who has been living here for thirty years
this room is one on the roof top owned by a hairdresser who has covered his walls in metallic squares of colour

an irish make up artist and hilarious gay man that wouldn't stop spanking each other
my two favorite girls of the night they reminded me of the biz the one on the left is heloise she is in a band heloise and the savoir faire they are pretty fabulous

the show was filled with the people you expected to see

ashley the cute receptionist at betsey

a betsey dress we are all hoping they remake
taking pictures for next show s inspiration
on thursday night i went to see the magnetic fields played at a historic theater in new jersey.
may i say. jersey city is very cute

wish the biz was to the left of me, but all i had was a teenage boy chasing his own shadows.
with sweet wine and pop corn,
taking candy striper to the next level.

a scrap book of sorts

We are two best friends: Sarah and Lara.

We have been collaging together since we were in kindergarten. From hilroy to apple, the medium has changed but the message remains the same.

We get by with a little help from our friends,
the biz-biz
