Introducing Philip Sparks

Toronto designer Philip Sparks is another designer who continues to deliver quality pieces with well thought out concepts. His recent show for Spring 2010 was inspired by the cottage life and 1950′s Canadian Pacific Railway getaway ads. If you like what you see, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy the Fall 2009 line currently available at Holt Renfrew on Bloor.

Toronto Fashion Week officially kicked off October 19 and runs ’til October 24, 2009, but there were two designers that decided to work outside of the box and umm… outside of the tents by producing shows last week.

Last week Thursday we checked out the Greta Constantine show inside the Audi Dealership on Bayview. The answer is yes, actually inside where they conduct business everyday selling R8′s and A4′s. The event was awesome from top to bottom from the valet service to the Rado entry bracelets, the open bar, Hastens mattresses, catered by Nyood, and most importantly a great runway show. Even with all the great extras that the event offered, nothing was more exciting than the 15mins of watching the actual show. The clothes were awesome and all had their own unique mood and energy.

A special congratulations goes out to the gentlemen of Greta Constantine. Thanks again for the invite.

Brazen Hussy S/S 2010 Fashion Show

Toronto Fashion Week officially kicked off October 19 and runs to October 24, 2009, but there were two designers that decided to work outside of the box and umm… outside of the tents by producing shows last week.

Last week Wednesday we checked out the Brazen Hussy show at the Spoke Club, definitely a cool and unexpected spot to find a runway of Brazen Hussies. The show was amazing, each piece increased the excitement in the audience. The line showed great range using various colours, lengths, and great usage of zippers, pleats, and frills.

It was fun to watch the facial expressions and side conversations from the ladies in attendance that night. It was funny to see that the initial reaction to a particular piece might look like a “oh hell no” but as the wheels begin to turn and that model heads back down the runway the facial expression starts to look more like “I could wear that…”

The pieces are sexy, vibrant, and risky at times, but from the crowds reaction last week, it’s safe to say that there might be a Brazen Hussy piece for every woman.

Danielle Meder of finalfashion.com was among the audience, click here to read what she had to say about the show.

Special congratulations to Kathleen Pedro, Michele Pedro and Ashley Macintyre PR for putting a great show.

We’ve posted pics so you can get a look for yourself, let us know what you think about the Brazen Hussy SS10 line.

1 LOVE T.O.

Last night I went to the LG Fashion Week event celebrating “100 Years of Beauty by L’Oreal Paris”. It was incredible to see all the different styles and trends that we’ve worn over the years. My personal favorite was the 80′s era, pop/rock with an attitude to match.

I stayed long enough to check out the rest of the “Wear Love Alive” show which showcased a slew of top designers including, David Dixon, Nada, and Elizabeth Rex to name a few. Check the videos below from our friends over at Freshly.Educated.Men.

There’s so much going on in the fashion world this week, but Toronto has it all…so keep checking for our updates!

Walkmans & Cassettes by TNR

Remember the days before mp3′s, ipods, or even discmans…way back when we used walkmans and cassettes. Personally, I had the giant yellow Sony Sport walkman…that thing was indestructible!

The Toronto band Times Neue Roman has just released their full-length album, only available on cassette as part of a package deal that includes a walkman (designed by Monika Lynn) with headphones and batteries. It’s great to see a refreshing and creative way of releasing music in an over saturated market. The walkman’s have already sold out, but TNR is looking to create more!

We have an exclusive track from the cassette, check it out below…

Kudos to TNR.
