I can only sum up yesterday in one word GREAT! Seriously there needs to be another word to describe the kind of day I had! Amazing does come to mind, so does exceptional, fantastic….I could go on and on but I won’t!
Yesterday was day two for me of LG Toronto Fashion Week and I was at Heritage Court to see three more shows. Attitude by Sears, Rachel Mara, and Joe Fresh. When I arrived at the venue I could tell that there was a distinct difference in the crowd than there was the day before; why, because the celebrities and personalities were out in full force.
I made it my mission to be backstage to get makeup and hair looks for the Rachel Mara show. I couldn’t do it yesterday because my camera was dead! So right after the Attitude show I shimmied my behind backstage; I got some fun interviews and exclusive backstage video of model Renee Thompson doing a stomp off with Sheena from MTV News it was too HOT and one of those moments that you wish you were there to witness.
Also, yesterday I had to follow some super fashion week advice, bring a pair of flat shoes! I was rocking 5″ OTK leather boots that had my feet asking why I hated them so much so my peep toe Nine West kitten heels came to the rescue! Ahh tis the price we pay!
I think for those of you who have been reading my blog from the beginning you know that my blog is about interviewing people and finding out what they are like and what they do like. Soooo of course I thought up a few questions that would work in a short conversation. Here they are, and here are just some of the people I’ve had the great pleasure of talking to and finding out a little more about.
- Who is your favourite Canadian Supermodel?
- Favourite Canadian designer?
- Most stylish Canadian personality?
- Canadian fashion designer most excited to see this week?

As I said earlier I saw three shows yesterday Attitude by Sears, Rachel Mara and Joe Fresh. Rachel Mara was my fav for the day, even though Joe Fresh did not disappoint and their great price points makes it easy for everybody to be fashionable whether you’re a big budget Fashionista or a Recssionista there is something for everyone. But right now I’m going to focus on Rachel Mara.
