Montreal Fashion Jobs – Spring Trend: Cool Cutouts

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Spring runways saw an array of cutouts this season, baring midriffs, shoulders, and lower backs at the likes of Charlotte Ronson, Balenciaga and Alexander Wang. The style showcases subtle pieces of skin through mesh knits, loose silks and sheer overlays: see Ronson’s breezy surfer inspired collection below. To get the look, imbue your wardrobe with soft pieces like this flirty dress from Suno, or Nasty Gal’s relaxed knit sweater. Even accessories have taken to the trend, especially on shoes. I love Elizabeth and James’ cutout booties for summer – they will look great paired with shorts, white jeans or sundresses.

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Enchanted Garden

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

“I want this place to look like a garden, but a garden in hell,” Vogue’s iconic editor Diana Vreeland, famously said about her red apartment. “I can’t imagine being bored with it – it would be like becoming bored with the person you love.”

Hot on the heels of the launch of Vreeland’s documentary, Eye Has to Travel, couturiers personified said garden, adding ingenuity to Spring’s floral trend. Valentino, Chanel and Margiela’s runways all saw an ethereal aesthetic, where Great Gatsby glamour meets A Midsummer Night’s Dream mystique. Designers used novel accouterments to elevate the magic, including gilded brocade, tiered silk chiffon lace, and even custom-made organza false eyelashes – the latter by Karl Lagerfeld, no less.

To channel this enchanted garden party, opt for elegant yet unique pieces with bold embellishments, like the leather bodice on Free People’s floral maxi dress, or Haute Hippie’s sequined mini.
