Festival Fashion Made Functional: SMARTERGARTER

Carcia & Telly suited up for the next show with SMARTERGARTER!

We were recently introduced to an amazing accessory to help with our usually busy concert season this year. Unlike the Fanny-Pack, SmarterGarter doesn’t sit on your waist, but wraps comfortably around your leg or thigh. The accessory is adjustable, so you can have the purse sit right above your boot or high up on your thigh. Items we put inside? Debit cards, Samsung Galaxy Note mobile, concert tickets, lipstick and subway tokens. The house key and car key fit too!

As for the fashion side of things, the SmarterGarter is so Edgy! Whether you’re a Rocker Gal or Boho chick, there is a SmarterGarter style that can fit your lifestyle. We wore it with a skirt and it was just as comfortable bare-legged. Telly’s Skull SmarterGarter (called QUEENS) is a tie-up in a corset style, so heads WILL turn when she walks by. My Spike Stud SmarterGarter (called STURGIS) is chic and can move into a minimal look easily with a hook & eye closure. These babies only retail for $37.50 on sale! Head over now and make your orders. Your concert going self will be grateful!

AMTI – Angie’s Models & Talent International 2nd Anniversary

Posted on: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

3 20150415_193138
Recently, Angie’s Models & Talent International (AMTI) celebrated its 2nd Anniversary here in Toronto. Dimitrios Seymour, the AMTI Toronto Director, invited us to the the official party at the Agencies office, located in the Film District within the Wrigley Factory. The Agency has filled the void left by Ford Models when the agency closed its doors here years ago.
After 25 years in business, AMTI is affiliated & recognized worldwide by top agents, fashion agencies, personal managers & casting directors. Known for managing some of the industry’s brightest stars, they have grown to become a major player not only in Canada, but internationally with clientele. While chatting with Dimitrios, we asked him about how the Toronto market differs for Actors and Models versus the European markets.
Toronto is a major fashion market. World MasterCard Fashion Week is the second biggest fashion week in North America outside of New York. Toronto is the forth biggest city in North America as well and Toronto is the most diverse city in the world, so there is a lot to work with here. Toronto is known to be more of a commercial market. You get a lot of catalog work here because major brands shoot here in the city. The world likes Canadians as models and actors. The whole aesthetic to what we look for in modelling here is diverse. Why try to find the petite tall girl for Paris, we try to find the curvy vivacious girl for Turkey, and for male models we always try to find the guy with the beard, which is strictly for Toronto and its very unique to Toronto, not very global yet. Canada likes the rugged male. Being in Toronto makes it very easy for us to place models all over globally, “  Dimitrios Seymour, the AMTI Toronto Director, said.
We snapped some shots at the event for your viewing pleasure.

Out & About: Green Beauty with Erin Tracy

Posted on: Monday, April 20, 2015

Erin Tracy introduces minimal bridal jewelry for the Bride who wants to enjoy her accessories after the ceremony.

Erin Tracy introduces minimal bridal jewelry for the Bride who wants to enjoy her accessories after the ceremony.

Toronto’s eco-friendly beauty destination, Green Beauty played host to jewelry designer Erin Tracy who had her Bridal collection on display. The event featured models dressed in bridal wear designs and Erin Tracy jewelry so that we could see how the Bride can wear her jewelry on her special day. One Bride was dressed as a Contemporary Bride, while the other took on the Glam Hollywood red carpet look. Even through Bridal design, Erin Tracy’s minimal aesthetic stands strong. No more do Brides have to put up with huge clunky gaudy gems. Now, Brides can wear their wedding jewels to work, or as daily keepsakes. Below we have pictures of our favorite pieces, along with beautiful foodie displays by Elle Cuisine.

We loved how the colored jewels made it into the styling of this look.

Back jewels add such drama to this look. With the rise in body jewels and chains, it's time to become adventurous with jewelry this spring and summer.

Style Diary: Styling at World MasterCard Fashion Week

Posted on: Thursday, April 16, 2015

Before the storm that is WorldMaster Card Fashion Week.

Before the storm that is World Master Card Fashion Week.

This season Chantel Telly and I assisted The Collections, a fashion production and public relations company with four World Mastercard Fashion Week shows for Fall Winter 2015. It was very stressful, very on the fly, but so much bloody fun. A few weeks prior to the shows, we helped with casting models and dealing with fittings. It was a pleasure working with some of our favorite designers including Mikael D, Triarchy, 3.Paradis, and Helder Diego.

 Triarchy

20150325_154305_resized 20150325_154319_resized 20150325_164558_resized 20150325_164610_resized 20150325_164620_resized 20150325_164727_resizedBW 20150325_164851_resized 20150325_165527_resizededit 20150325_170004_resizededitProbably the best time backstage. Everyone was happy and at ease! Great group to work with through the casting, fittings and show.

 3.Paradis

20150327_102016_resizedOne of the unglamorous sides to styling? Lacing mens dress shoes. Trust me, many ladies (and men) have no idea how to do it. Pre-show prep meant lacing these at home before packing them up for the show the next day.

Mikael D.

The most challenging show was probably this beautiful majestic showcase, the Mikael D. runway show. A few dresses were literally on JUST in time to make the runway. We packed the dresses at one location and drove them straight to the tents. I included a few images from the sitting process here. Everyone on the team worked hard to get this show looking flawless and we were proud to play such a huge part.

Helder Diego

This show was weeks in the making with fittings and casting taking place early on. Again, a great team to work with and a flawless show. It alos helps that we are Huge fans of the line and the color scheme that Helder Diego used.

Out & About: Cavalia ‘ODYSSEO’

Posted on: Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The spirit of the Horse is always on stage, even during this Lovely music and aerobatic piece around a large carueselThe spirit of the Horse is always on stage, even during this Lovely music and aerobatic piece around a large carousel.

The best dreams and fantasies have the following elements: Music, beauty in its purest nature, movement and entertainment. The wonder of the global hit live show, Cavalia ODYSSEO, is so great that no brick and mortar space can handle it. When you see those huge white tents in the Toronto horizon, you know the show is about to begin.

We had the opportunity to see a media preview of the live show, starring 70 horses, 45 artists including riders, acrobats, aerialists, dancers and musicians from all over the world. What they present is pure magic. No words never need to be uttered because visually, every emotion comes to life. During our preview, 12 horses were on stage taking direction from a rider with not a single whip or loud call. After the show we were told that was the very first time in the world that this performance was ever done. It was lovely! Everyone in the audience was moved. The very atmosphere of being in a tent is lost with the help of projectors and heavenly pleasing music. You are lost in the fantasy and taken away for a bit. Exactly what you need after this chilly winter season. For the family, this is a GREAT way to have your kids enjoy and appreciate animals, but you may have to look into booking riding lessons for the kids afterwards. This show will inspire everyone to try riding. Obviously, we suggest you add this show to your social calendar. We’ve seen it at least once every time its comes to the city.

The show started April 8th and continues throughout May, but I suggest grabbing tickets now before ODYSSEO moves on to other cities worldwide.
