Everyone’s favorite go-to for easy fashion finds, H&M, hosted a huge party at their Toronto Eaton Centre location. For us, it almost felt like a Fashion Week event with all the industry friends we ran into while browsing through the store with a 20% discount on all items in the store. Even if you had a long day, the energy of the crowd would brighten your mood. Orange Is The New Black star Taryn Manning and Here songstress Alessia Cara kept our feet tapping while we all ran back and forth from the cash register line. Between Telly and I, we must have ran back and forth in that line 6 times. The highlight of the night would have to be the introduction to H&M HOME! Fun accessories for every room in your home along with fun items for the kids. When you add up H&M Beauty section, you can easily see that H&M is set to become a Lifestyle brand rather then a fast-fashion pit stop.
The beginning of an amazing friendship! This was THE first night we met Myles Sexton.
It’s crazy too look back recall how we met the fantastic man that is Myles Sexton. Four years after some great laughs at a fashion party, we can now sit in the middle of a park and discuss how far we’ve come in this motley industry of Fashion. We chat with Myles about his early beginning, his artistry in modeling, makeup and his creation NORD Magazine. Watch this video for laughs and some education too!

TOM* Toronto Men’s Fashion Week truly showcases the best in Men’s Fashion, presenting our incredible designers we’ve showcased this week. Designer Christopher Bates, who is well known for his evening and formal wear, presented a very cool and casual collection perfect for the Christopher Bates man, but a bit more laid back. Looking at the styles we liked most, you can see the reference to the 1970′s where rock and rollers where more into showing themselves off. If you’re a fan of leather, suede, deep browns and long coats, this is the collection for you. One piece that stood out would be the military combat pants paired with a leather blazer. It was a different spin on the mood throughout the show, but the leather blazer brought it home. Young business executives will easily find items to pair with their current closet. We ask you, who DOESN’T enjoy a man in a long coat?
Already known to fashion insiders as a women’s wear line, L’MOMO made a strong presentation at TOM Toronto Men’s Fashion Week. We went into the show not knowing what would come down the runway. Telly and I wondered how the brand would be interpreted through menswear. The women’s wear from previous seasons carry sexy sophistication for the bold girl who will not be left behind. In a way, the men’s collection carried the same aura. L’MOMO displayed bold athletic wear, long coats and jackets and statement pants with a futuristic flare. This was a great brand to kick off TOM. The collection was strong, bold and didn’t miss a beat with keeping your eyes on the runway. See images of our favorite looks below.
A runway show we always look forward to is that of FINEZZA, the Montreal Menswear line that carries a regal and elegant sophistication that cannot be denied!

The show started with casual pieces, into lifestyle sportswear to evening and event style. The tailoring and styling options here are so strong! FINEZZA is a true lifestyle brand, catering to the man who wants to live a gentlemen lifestyle elegantly. See our favorite looks below!
Recently, we sat in on an industry tasting at a new restaurant in Toronto called FUSE. Fuse is a chic, cool restaurant and lounge with a private dining and event space at Queen Street East and Parliament. The space with exposed brick is large with many views of large flat screen televisions and a huge projector screen, perfect for the sports fan. Our tasting included numerous sample sizes of the amazing dishes Fuse has to offer. Telly and I had a chance to dine at this restaurant previously and we enjoyed it so much that when the event coordinator asked us our opinion on the menu we jumped at making selections for our colleagues to try. Throughout the evening, we listened to the lovely Woodney Pierrea sassy crooner in her own way!
Our meal consisted of…
Chicken & Donuts – Yes. Chicken and Donuts together!! This is a Must Try.
Stuffed Eggplant Medallions
Escovitch Fish Taco
Sizzling Kalbi Beef -The aroma from this dish will catch you and never let you go.
Graham Crusted Brie
Black Bean Burger
FUSE Salad – Includes grape tomatoes, red onions and honey house dressing.
We call this restaurant for gathering with your grown friends. The food is great, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming and the owners along with the amazing Chef and staff desire to please their guests. The summer season will be great for FUSE as they have a retractable front window that can be opened for city dwellers to smell the amazing Sizzling Kalbi Beef. Visit FUSE at 366 Queens Street East, Toronto.
