The Concrete streetstyle, #FMD edition - I asked model Tifeny if she were a shoe, what would she be. “ Converses” she said. “They never go out of style and they’re super comfy” Co-signing! From a sneaker freak to another!
Thirsty Thursday Miuzak: Smoking in my car by Jade de Lafleur feat. James Fauntleroy - As the last days of summer are exceedingly upon us, burgeoning songstress Jade de LaFleur has me desperately holding on to the warm weather here in Montreal, just cruising in the car with the wiindows down. NOT inhaling ANYtthhhiiinng, though. Just bumping this as I have on the regular for the past couple of weeks.
If you, like me, are a fan of her miuzak, you’ve probably noticed how it is so progressive & organic; almost cosmic. This joint right here is no exception. POSOLOGY: To listen to without moderation.
SIMC is off de Lafleur’s debut album “Jaded”.
The Concrete streetstyle, #FMD edition - When I asked Topshop HR Dominique what piece of clothing she can’t leave her house without she said her RayBans. Good call! They’re such classic shades. And can we have a moment for her adorable American apparel skater skirt!

Runway Report: Roxanne Nikki, #FMD edition - Much to my surprise and delight Winnipeg-born, Montreal Lasalle college-trained and Vancouver-based Roxanne Nikki was an enjoyable highlight at this year’s Fashion & Design Festival.
Clean, modern lines, with the theatrics of a rockstar, the fashion industry veteran presented a fierce range that cohesively covers a contemporary woman with an edge and an eye for luxurious fabrics like fur and leather. Wearable, a little wild and certainly not dull, local is anything but boring with Nikki in the mix, and I cannot wait to see what she designs next.

Runway Report: FMD Collections - Beyond the miuzak, fashion has always taken center stage when it comes to festivals. Last week’s Fashion & Design Festival was no different.
The FDF jollities started this past tuesday when I headed to the Contemporary Art Museum for FMD Collections, an exclusive fashion media & aficionados event surrounding the fabulous fiesta. Aside from catching up with many beautiful faces, I got to cast my eye over spring/summer 2015 collections from some of our most beloved local designers, curated by this year’s appointed commissioner, author/blogger/photographer/illustrator and all-around leading international fashion figure Garance Doré(SN: she is exquisitely charming!)
We were treated to glorious offerings from Ying Gao and her ethereal creations, Mylène B.'s minimal but oh so chic ensembles, Travis Taddeo's luxurious twist on sportswear, the amazing African print Dutch Wax of Niapsou Design, Ève Gravel's ocean-inspired pieces and a set of glama-drama from UNTTLD. A delectable feast for the eyes.
