Video~~Backstage Interviews LG Toronto Fashion Week F/W 2011


So This year I will be giving you guys way more video on this blog. I began to share video last year but I have so much footage and interviews that I haven’t uploaded and it’s crazy; so I’m giving you guys all of it! Here’s the first one, two seasons ago I was backstage at LG Toronto Fashion week F/W 2011 and got some great interviews from models getting ready to walk.  Big thank yous to Paris McColly from Ford models and Aminat former ANTM contestent and Dani Evans ANTM cycle 6 winner.  Check it out below!



Alexxuss Loves~~The Peacock Parade

You guys know the deal there is always a story behind blog post I do and with the people I interview and there is a story here also.  I met Jan and Nancy on the set of the Two Girls in Fashion promo shoot that I was did.  At the time they were coming by to see my former business partner and I in action and also to meet me.  I had heard great things about them prior and was looking forward to the meeting.  After that first introduction I ran into them several times over the course of LG Toronto Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2011 shows.  Every time I saw them they were always fashionably if not also impeccably dressed, rocking Canadian designer labels as easily as others and getting plenty of attention for their wardrobe choices. 

The Peacock Parade is your one stop shop for amazing designer brands for reasonably affordable prices. When I heard that I had to check out their website which I adore, especially for their images.  They also have a blog on the site that covers all of the fashion events that they go to and reviews of collections.  Check out the website here. 

You will want to sign up so that you can gain access to the great deals they have on designer clothing and right now if you sign up you will be entered to win a classic Chanel flap bag… who wouldn’t want to win the bag.  Also if you tell your friends to sign up then you get more chances at winning the bag.   So tell a friend to tell a friend it’s that simple. 

And while your on the site don’t forget to check  out the blog

LG Toronto Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 Day 5~~Line Knitwear Pics

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!

Here is Line Knitwear fall/winter 2011…

LG Toronto Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 Day 5

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!

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.


LG Toronto Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 Day 4~~Rudsak pics

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. 

Check out the pictures…
