The 2011 Dj Stylus weekend took place from May 27- May 30. If you don’t know what they are I will let you know. The Stylus awards and spinfest weekend take place every year to celebrate Dj’s, producers, artists, and lovers of music across Canada. Lending a voice to an OH so important segment of the music industry that often does not get the credit that it deserves. Dj’s keep us bumpin in the club, they break and release new music first and they are generally on the ground floor when it comes to what’s hot right now.
So in an effort to recognize those who keep our toes tapping I went to see who was showing up on the Red Carpet and of course what they were wearing…this is a fashion blog after all.
I had a great time taking pics and interviewing people on the carpet with the help of my correspondent for the day Deirdre. The video is coming soon…but in the meantime check out the pictures! Big shout out to Ryan Singh Enterprises for the videography!
So I wasn’t actually there for this show which is all good, considering I missed the show because I had to work. Hey, it happens and I knew I wouldn’t be able to see it because all of the evening shows had been running late all week so staying wasn’t an option. In any case I did get the photos and am glad to present them to you. This is Line knitwear the closing show for fashion week. Considering all of the superb collections that came down the runway this season I imagine it must have been difficult to close the week. This was one of the best weeks that I have seen with respect to designer collections. Designers have really stepped up their game and have really, (I believe) announced to the fashion world at large that they are capable of putting together wearable, well designed, well cut, cohesive and most importantly sellable collections. If this is where we are now, regardless of how long it’s taken to arrive here we have a bright and beautiful future ahead of us! Yay for Canadian fashion!
So I’ve been lax in getting these final pictures up and out to you guys. Hopefully you’re not too upset, in any case here are the photos from Amanda Lew Kee which was the only show I actually made it to on Day 5. Of course it was also the only show that I really wanted to see on Day 5 as well. And well it was sooooo worth it!

This young designer is going places yall, she’s established herself as the one of the ones to watch and I’m sure we will be seeing great things from her in the future.
So there was alllot that happened this day that I straight missed, thank the lord that I had two photographers there to capture every fabulous minute of it.
I managed to drag my very tired, swollen footed butt into the venue in time to see the Amanda Lew Kee show, which happened to be the show that I wanted to see. Annnnd it was worth the wait. I won’t say that I loved every single look that came down the runway, but I will say that I was really feeling the all black everything with the gold trim and gold exposed zippers. I also loved the sheer panels that she incorporated into her leggings.
In any case check out the pics from around the venue and the backstage beauty for OR by Angela Chen…
I had so many behind the scenes pics and beauty pics this season that I have to split the day’s coverage into two posts. So stay on the blog and check out the show pics from my fav show of the day. Amanda Lew Kee!
As I was telling yall yesterday, this is the show that I was blowing into the venue to see at a full run. Check out the pics below of the Basch by Brandon Dwyer show.

A little different of a collection then we had been seeing all week but Brandon still managed to include the trends that are coming out of the season. Purple and Green and Orange are the colours to shop for when Fall hits. There is a shade for you so find one and experiment.
So here are the collections from Day 4 that I was really feeling. Rudsak’s show just made me want to wear outer wear and shoes and nothing else because their coats are beyond sick. I also really enjoyed the Lundstrom show because it started with great choreography and lighting and as I said during the Bustle show I love a little production with my fashion.

Sorry yall that will come up in the next couple of days. Sounds good? I know it does. Check back here…..
As promised I dedicated a whole post to the Attitude by Jay Manuel show. Just in case you didn’t know this collection was styled by June Ambrose herself, so you know it’s going to be in the words of the Diva herself Haute!

So did I lie about the collection? I had to give you guys the distant shot and the close up so you can catch the fever that these models were giving off on the runway. Hands down the best walked show of the week! There is still day 4 and 5 coverage to come so check back here in a few.
