Sisters

Long coats and spring casuals!
That says it all.
A great moment shared as these two sisters spent time walking between locations to meet Mom on Mother’s day.

Comfort street walking shoes and casuals are offset by
sharp classic hand bags and accessories.

Clean lines make them appear tall(er) and always simple fashion like this draws attention to your face.

FUJI5980-Edit

Clean make up and naturally beautiful skin, minimal lipstick and tidy brows are great practice for appearing younger on women of all ages.

Behind the Scenes Blues

This month we go on location for a quick snap shot of local publication Y.A.M. at work in studio VIC42 with a custom couture piece from my collection #ss2016 Teresa Lindsay Couture. The design is a #geofashion dress done in soft cotton jersey with an 80’s angled pattern in blacks and royal blue. This creation came at the request of fashion stylist, Janine Metcalfe for a distinct series on a spread titled “Moody Blues.”

Special thanks to photographer Jeffery Bosdet, model Katie Keough, and make-up by Melodie Reynolds of Elate Cosmetics.

Victoria welcomes home for a visit the worldly and wonderful milliner Tierre Taylor. Her recent publicity with Humans of New York and life in Toronto has kept this bright and talented worker of couture hats a whirlwind experience with lots of national and international buzz.

Retro and vintage looks all hand crafted by Tierre as well as the ever popular fascinators! ¬†Hosts, store manger Freni and, shop owner, Keith were on hand coordinating their array of fine footwear with Tierre’s exquisite finery for the guests.

of Behind the scenes…. love this shot of Ivan Meade taking his versions too!
The very talented team as we have said before worked tirelessly to produce a brand building photograph of Ivan Meade’s first collection of designer interior fabrics. A creative undertaking that we especially proud and honoured to be a part of.

Thanks to a beautiful fog that rolled in we had a natural white wall illuminated by the sun, a complete gift and total surprise that helped make this such a memorable photograph.

Please leave comments below that you would like to make and we will be sure to share them with the team!
