The show we put on for Western Canada Fashion Week went better than we hoped for, and could not have been any happier! I really want to show everyone the pictures that we took, but it looks like it's going to take about another week for us to get images back. However, i'd rather you see the images in the best possible way rather than see them early, so i'm happy to wait a little longer :)

Stay tuned!!

Ben Sherman

While I was in Toronto, I called into London to talk to Mark Maidment, Creative Director of Ben Sherman, to discuss the brand, Savile Row, and the company's debut in the Canadian marketplace, with the opening of their first stand-alone store along Queen Street in Toronto. He was a really laid-back and great man to interview, easily one of the most comfortable and casual interviews that I have ever conducted. You could tell that the he was very passionate about the brand that he heads, which is evident in the company's new direction and product offerings! Featured in the September issue of SHARP magazine, you can read a small preview inside the issue (out on stands now!), or read the interview in its entirety below! Enjoy :)


As a sneak peak to my upcoming show for Western Canada Fashion Week, here's a snakeskin satchel I found that will be featured when we (Brittanee and I) debut our collection on Friday, September 23rd! 

Oh, and we got it for only $7 ;)

If you're in town (Edmonton), come say hi and watch our show!
Doors open at 7pm, September 23rd at the Transalta Arts Barn 
10330 84 Avenue Northwest, Edmonton

(Afterparty at the Rack on Whyte Ave!)

Original Gangsters

Featured in the September 2011 issue of SHARP Magazine is a piece called, "Original Gangsters". It basically highlights how the heritage/vintage look is now, and always has been, "in". While this particular aesthetic may be a current trend, dressing smart has always been a classic standard that men can rely on for a great look. To add fuel to effect, I interviewed John Dunn and Lisa Padovani, costume directors of the hit HBO series "Boardwalk Empire", to get their take on this great sartorial philosophy, since much of this aesthetic is displayed throughout the show. You can read the feature in the magazine, out on stands now, or the full interview below!

The September Issue

I finally found/bought a copy (or six) of the newest SHARP Magazine issue today!!! Before you ask, no, I am not a hoarder of men's fashion/lifestyle magazines. This particular issue is of significance to me because it's the very first (legit) publication that my work has been published in!!! Seeing my name on those pages was quite the surreal experience! So naturally, I bought six copies (is that even enough?) It's also quite comforting that my first bit of work would be featured in the Style/September issue of a magazine as well. How fitting :)

The Sartorial Wisdom of Dan Levy

You'll remember I previously met up with Dan Levy over the summer for an interview, and here it is! I sat down with the witty, sarcastic, and impeccably stylish Levy to discuss all things sartorial for SHARP Magazine. You can read the interview on their website here, or below for more!

TOMS x The Row

This is too cute. It's nice to see the girls with a genuine, sincere smile once in a while.
Fashion need not always be cold.
