Fashion Week has already passed! I am including my favorite personal photos from inside the fashion environment. For the full runway recap, visit WMCFW online here. “
Most of the Fall 2013 Collection from MATIS by Lucian Matis was printed head to toe with feminine florals and grayscale graphics. The silhouette of choice was the dress, both long and short, and each look was topped off with a delicate piece of jewelry. The designer added in some of Fall’s key colors with black, navy, and a deep, dark red”. Another exciting show was Laura Siegel. I could really see myself wearing her designs. For Siegel, Fall is undled up in shades of rust, charcoal, and ivory prevailed. Soft fabrics made the whole collection fall “cozy”. The designer included handcrafted beaded jewelry to accent the collection. Here are the rest of my photos from World MasterCard Fall Fashion Week 2013 – enjoy!

World Mastercard Fashion Week is well underway at David Pecaut Square in the heart of downtown Toronto and I bring you coverage from the past couple days alongside Canada’s most coveted Catwalk. Designer Christopher Bates hosted his runway show in a sharp tuxedo. Ashtiani designer Golnaz Ashtiani continued the trend of mixing fabrics, combining traditional velvets, mohair and silk organza into pieces. Her pieces were each made with more than one fabric. Lucian Matis presented his expansive ready-to-wear collection Matis, punctuated with colorful, artsy, and floral designs. Day 3 also saw the City of Light illuminating the latest looks from Joe Fresh. Joe Fresh has effortlessly and effectively incorporated Parisian chic into affordable apparel. Headscarf-sporting models donned two-piece knit sets, sheer, ruffled silk tops, polka dot blouses, sequinned designs, and pleated skirts. The fashion environment is a frenzy of familiar faces sporting beautiful colors and dapper designs.
What I Wore:: Wednesday!
Maybelline has a sleek setup in the heart of the fashion environment at World Mastercard Fashion Week. The Fashion Environment is a frenzy of fabulous familiar faces and beautiful designs. I truly believe fashion is an expression of one’s self! Fashion is meant to be unique and fun. Maybelline is showcasing their new Rocket Volume Express Mascara which boasts “Explosive Volume in Rocket Time! 8X Bigger, Smoother, [lashes]”. Guests at Fashion week are treated to Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel Shadow. The hottest trends in lips include VIVID color for Fall 2013. All week long I have been sporting colors from Maybelline’s Vivid lip color line. Today I wore Vibrant Mandarine and Vivid Rose.

My stilettos are back on the shelf again after attending World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto October 22-26 at David Pecaut Square. I have an inside look at the show in it’s entirety while overseeing the Essie booth inside the tent. For those looking for a stylish, fashionable nail makeover, Essie, the official nail sponsor of the week, offered free manicures. Essie’s gorgeous Winter Collection arrives November 1st at major retailers, like Shoppers Drugmart. Check out my gorgeous nails! They definitely evolved throughout the week; what started as a LuxEffects French manicure quickly turned into Flashy Gold #BeyondCozy nails from the Winter Collection with LuxEffects tips, finally adding in a red accent nail by the end of the week. The red is ‘Leading Lady’ again, hot out of the Essie Winter Collection. Look at the gorgeous Essie polishes fresh for Winter…
Another striking highlight of the week was when Stacie Mckenzie breezed into Maybelline for an adorable photo set with us. I never feel quite prepared for coming face-to-face with a top model I’ve admired for so long. She is truly a sweetheart not to mention a total babe! Here are some of my favorite photos from the week…
As for the shows, Joe Fresh was glitzy, contrasted leather and sheer looks prevailed, and Express closed the show. Afterward, Express hosted a stellar studio party where they gave VIPS free clothes! My new all black STUDIO STRETCH WIDE WAISTBAND EDITOR PANT fit like a dream. Thanks Express.
I sat at Travis Taddeo in the studio, utterly wowed by the dominance of leather at this show. Taddeo juxtaposed a Leather Vest on Sheer, a One Shoulder Blue Backless Dresses with V cuts, Metallic accents, White Ruffle Skirts, White Belted Sheer gowns, interesting cuts, patterned grays on whites, and did I mention a lot of leather layer?
WMCFW describes TRAVIS TADDEO as having ‘gained a loyal following among fashion risk-takers by pushing and overcoming the conventional expectations established for Canadian fashion design. Known for his combination of minimal lines and distinctive blends of silk, jersey, leather and fur, Taddeo offers simplicity with edge by creating a bold marriage between luxury and street wear,’. Montreal-based Travis Taddeo brought a definitive edge to his chic, minimalist looks in his spring-summer collection at World MasterCard Fashion Week.

Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week kicked off its 27th season yesterday and I am here to bring you a behind-the-scenes view of the action! Yesterday saw fashion houses Holt Renfew and Pink Tartan showcasing their hottest spring trends. Notably, the emphasis has been on metallics, lace, oxblood, and cream colors. ” From an azure blue draped sleeved satin dress from Yves Saint Laurent to a colour-blocked coat from Celine, a patterned Prada suit and sleek tuxedo from Tom Ford, the looks on display offered an extensive range of apparel and accessories, with outerwear, evening-wear and everything in between. While a large portion of the designer showcase was devoted to international labels, homegrown talents had their time to shine, either featured in standalone looks or teamed with apparel and accessories from foreign brands,” Ottawa Citizen notes. For me, I am in ESSIE Nail heaven while taking full advantage of backstage sights and sounds at Fall Fashion week.

I participated in Miss CHIN Bikini International Saturday June 30 at the CNE Bandshell during the CHIN Picnic festivities.
This year’s winner was Casandra Bella. She is super sweet & fabulous! Anastasia Shvets #17 placed second, and third place was Annie Pietroniro. The show is produced and staged by Serena Schwab of Knew-Age Solutions. Choreography by FAYEZ 1 Productions. Faye Rauw is a gem!!
Contest preparations saw us participating in the Chin Picnic Media Launch, exploring the sights and sounds at ‘Taste of Little Italy’ Toronto Event; Contestants made an appearance on CHIN TV live, Breakfast Television Toronto. You can check out our segment on Breakfast Television at the 43:00 mark. Click Here.
I met so many amazing ladies during the CHIN Picnic preparations. We shared a lot of love, laughs & fitness tips. Contestants were also treated to a fabulous prize pack featuring nutrition supplements & tanning supplies. The pageant theme was ‘Hollywood’; We definitely brought the sizzle to CNE grounds. It’s all glamour & fashion on the stage of the Miss CHIN Bikini Pageant.
Mr. CHIN International took place Sunday at the CNE.
Check out some shots collected from the 2012 Miss CHIN Bikini International pageant:
All week long I attended World Mastercard Fashion Week at David Pecaut Square located in the heart of downtown Toronto at King and John. I was taking in all the Fall 2012 fashions from Adrian Wu, Laura Siegel, Chloe Comme Parris and Martin Lim shows. Chloe Commes Parris showed witchy ensembles with lots of heavy black and Salem-inspired hair buns. Martin Lim was all about lines and dimensions, sticking to one or duo tones locked in strict square and rectangular shapes for his pieces.
Toronto Fashion Week (#TFW) blew up Toronto’s Twitterverse. Although we aren’t talking New York or Milan Fashion Week, Toronto impresses with beautiful people. I had such a blast taking in the incredible fashions. H&M was highly popular. Wednesday’s schedule was jam packed with incredible previews from Bustle & Melissa Nepton wildly popular Joe Fresh (9PM).
Korhani Home kicked off T.O. Fashion Week with some homely designed fabrics…
For those fashionistas unable to score tickets to the week-long event, were still able to watch the spectacle from King St. W thanks to floor to ceiling windows along one of the studio walls.
This year other changes at Fashion Week included a brand new moniker, from ‘LG Fashion Week’ to the now named ‘World Mastercard Fashion Week’. Fashion week is pure FASHION heaven for fashion lovers and designers alike. Whether you’re looking to see or be seen, World MasterCard Fashion Week is the place to be as some of the biggest names in Canadian fashion (and from all over the world) gather to showcase their Fall 2012 collections.
One of my favorite shows was Bustle…
Primarily because I think Stacey Mckenzie is a LEGEND! She is OH so sweet in person too.
What an amazing week I had. Here is me posing with the SL Class 😉
