With the wedding of a century under way tomorrow morning everyone is wondering who’s going to be the lucky designer behind Kate’s dress. Although I wish the happy royal couple all the best, I’m not going to follow everyone else and write about “who will she be wearing”. I’m just sharing a few fun pieces I’ve seen lately that have a British twist to it. Who doesn’t love a Union Jack inspired little something something?
As you all know by now, I’ve been obsessed by bow ties lately. I seek them out, beautiful colors and patterns. They are sometimes such hard things to come by (at least the nicer ones), so when my friend generously gifted his vintage bow tie to me, I was super excited to wear it. So, this is how I showed up to work! Thanks for the bow tie and the picture xp! 🙂 In this picture: Suit & Scarf: Banana Republic Shirt: Gap Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr. Q groovee bag Belt: Burberry Shoes: Converse What do you guys think about this look? What would be your modern twist to the classic black suit and bow tie? sa
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.
