Blast from the Past

Reflecting back to 1995…┬áThe love and confidence I had about fashion is still the same!
It’s amazing to feel the same joy shopping, or styling, or wardrobing today as I did when I started out as stylist.
When others express their enthusiasm for being transformed and refreshed in a coordinated look I still get goose-bumps!

Since, I have discovered that Wardrobing and Branding have a lot in common. What story do you want to tell?
Impressions and interpretations are created in the mind of the beholder, but what is more important is that you are confident in your message. Not everyone will match-up based on looks (personally or in business), aligning with people has more to do with connecting to people who have similar goals, intentions and vision.

I wear less suits these days and fashion opened huge doors for consulting and working aboard; I learned early on that a suit isn’t everything. Being self-aware of how to pull together great style and how to identify fashionable pieces however does have something to do with it.

Everywhere I look, people who are fashionable haven’t followed one trend (thankfully or we would all dress the same) they have followed their own.

What’s your message? What are your favourite pieces or accessories that conveys that message?


Actor Rises in Style!

A day for re-vamping the wardrobe is sometimes all about the “search party,” this was exactly what I had in mind for local Fringe Actor/Producer Izad Etemadi. A celebration and making the experience fun! We went to one of my favourite hidden gems that would carry clothing and vintage looks that could possibly come close the adoring character of Mr. Izad himself – Duchess & Duke. The consignment options are well selected by owner, Kasia’s keen eye and we had a great time sorting through the rare to find collection of mens wear.

Izad took on new pieces with an open mind, pinks, horizontal stripes, light tan pants by Tommy H., and a fedora. The shoes were the highlight and a dinner jacket that goes with everything!

Looks to audition in! Or find a date in the big city!

Truly, Izad, you will win them over with your charm! Great work on your personal transformation, you really shine!
