Toronto Fashion Jobs – Far East Movement

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Ride the Orient express this season and travel to ancient empires to celebrate Eastern origins for a movement that embraces the Far East. Designers ushered in the year of the dragon with textiles, motifs and adornments that rang true to Chinese nobility. Fall’s exotic mood and strong theme is rich in embroidery with ornamentation in traditional Asian influences like prominent florals, birds, fish and noble dragons for impact prints that were both beautiful and contemporary. Take cues from reigning style Emperor, Jason Wu, who sent blossoming opulent brocades and printed silks down the runway alongside gilded accents and shanghai tassels for a charming and elegant taste of the trend. This season visions of stunning geishas and brave samurais dancing along the Silk Road can be made true with luxurious fabrics and vibrant prints that add a touch of seductive glamour with Empress-worthy extras like mandarin collars and kimono details. No longer is the art of noble dressing an ancient Chinese secret.

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Mod About You

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

What do Twiggy, Edie Sedgwick and Foxy Brown (We’re talking Beyonce in her Austin Powers garb) have in common? Not only are they mod style icons but they can also work a killer frock!

The sixties are back this fall and it’s groovy baby! Think short straight-lined dresses, cute tunics, swing coats, minis and tall boots. Key elements are bold colours, geometric prints and big buttons. Don’t forget to complete the look with some over-the-top black eye makeup.

The times were all about being fun and fabulous. In our opinion, that kind of mentality should never go out of style! So let these looks inspire you to free your inner mod girl. You might even find yourself shimmying along to the Beatles’ “Twist and Shout”.
