On October 14th and 15th, The Bay held a two-day welcoming party to a group of talented British contemporary fashion designers Charlotte Olympia Dellal, Giles Deacon, Mark Fast, Erdem Moralioglu, Jonathan Saunders, Marios Schwab, and Nicholas Kirkwood. The first day of the “God Save the Queen” event started with an invite only gala held at The Room, which was transformed into a fashion gallery showcasing each designers work. The attendees at the event included socialites, fashion industry’s who’s who and media. Interestingly, two of the “British” designers are in fact, Canadian, but they are based out of London. Designers Erdem Moralioglu and Mark Fast are two of the best examples of Canadian talent and I am glad that they are so well-known globally for their designs.
Looking through GQ.com late at night and saw an article about pairing plaid shirts (LOVE them!) and dark tie (it’s a must) with your suits to make them pop and a more fresh look to them. The model for these pictures is Jason Sudeikis of SNL, he looks super cute in his get up for the photo shoot; I wonder who was the stylist for this shoot. Wearing plaids with suits is a great way of having some fun with your wardrobe and getting a bit more mileage out of all those plaid shirts we all (men & women) buy during the year. Think about it like “suiting up” with a plaid top, so Plaid Up! *Tip: Switch the suit pant with a pair of dark denim and get a great outfit for a night out or for a casual day at the office. sa
