Laura Siegel invited us to attend the launch of Project Eleven27 at Soho House Toronto last week. Project Eleven27 was created to honour the lives lost in the Bangladesh garment factory tragedy on April 24, 2013. Laura and her team partnered with a team of artisans in Kutch, India to hand weave 1,127 limited edition scarves using recycled sarees, and well all had the opportunity to shop scarves and select Laura Siegel pieces at the event with 40% of all sales raised that day being donated to their affiliate charity, Sreepur Village Organization.
Canadian womenswear label elan+castor (formerly Moose & Beaver) recently premiered their Fall/Winter 2014 Collection, with an intimate presentation to media, local personalities and influencers at Parlour in downtown Toronto, and we were there to catch all the action!
Check out some pics of the collection below!
“I’d like to believe that the elan+castor women are themselves unintentional style icons…those women who walk out of their homes looking amazing without even trying; these are the women with a liquid style.”- Leah Antoinette (Creative Director)
Thank you for inviting us!
We were invited to an Exclusive Preview of the REESE 2014 collection on Thursday. If you’ve seen any of Reese’s pieces then you know we were in for quite a treat- from sexy and unique bathing suits, to beautiful cultured pieces, and pretty printed dresses; this was gonna be good! I was especially looking forward to seeing the “Tourist-Oviya” piece and almost lost my mind when I did, because it’s just as beautiful in person as it looks in the online store! I need it in my life like yesterday!!
“It’s not what you wear… it’s how you wear it”- Reese
The lady of the hour!
It’s totally inspiring to see someone from Toronto doing some amazing things in the world of fashion and accessories all over the world, and the fact that she makes everything herself? AMAZING.
Below are some of my favourite pieces from the collection.
A big thank you to Reese for inviting us and sharing her collection with us!
The weather has been yucky these past couple of weeks but that wasn’t enough to stop us from passing by the Thompson Residences to check out the new Le Chateau Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Pretty clothes, pretty shoes, tasty wine and cupcakes, are exactly what I needed after a long, cold and rainy day.
We walked into a gorgeous suite and were greeted with a cocktail before being led into the first room, which was the ladies bedroom; where some of the ladies were getting quick manis, as well as perusing the new collection in the decked out walk-in closet! Once we got the goods on the womenswear, we headed over to the men’s room to check out what was in that walk-in closet…the woman’s walk-in closet was way more fun…naturally lol
Once we were done checking out the collection, we hung out in the suite, snacking on freshly made sushi, cupcakes and sipped on a variety of cocktails while chatting it up with some of our favourite bloggers and media personalities
Big thank you to the Le Chateau team for inviting us!
