TREND BLAZER

Fashion has a way of being transportive. Sunday we were on an adventurous trek around the globe with Jill Stuart, earlier today Prabal took us to Nepal, and now, Tadashi Shoji has us lost in the romance of Venice. Traveling is so important to open our minds and hearts. I know for me, traveling has changed my life and way of thinking. It’s no wonder so many designers take inspiration from places beyond our own everyday boundaries and then reinterpret these sights, smells, colors, experiences and emotions in their work so that we may all experience it with them. So here we are, sitting on the Grand Canal in Venice with Mr. Shoji, watching the magnificent Ca’ d’Oro reflecting off the water like the brush stokes of a Monet…

A taste of the branding project I did for local Saskatoon boutique, WHITE DHALIA. The inspiration board I created informed the final product that you see at the top the post.

A lesser known fact about the name is I made a spelling error in the early process of the logo design and the owners ended up going with the misspelling! A happy mistake I suppose. 

Vogue’s September cover photo is serving my inspiration for the 2015 SFDF campaign shoot. Can hardly wait to see the results!

Midtown Plaza was kind enough to think of me to act as a stylist and personal shopper for C95’s Bachelorette! Essentially, the premise of C95’s Bachelorette comes from the popular network cable TV show where 5 eligible bachelors vie for the hand of one supremely lovely bachelorette. Each gentlemen receives the opportunity to a one-on-one date to swoon their date to oblivion! As it would happen, I was able to tag along in the entourage for the first hour and half as a personal shopping guide through Midtown Plaza. Catch a taste of happened below! 

My style choices were a mix of spring trends and great transitional pieces that could work through every season. (More on this next week!) 

But the real question is did this young (would-be-couple) find love? That remains to be seen, however, I certainly felt a burgeoning friendship forming during my brief time with them. Fingers crossed that we hear wedding bells one day!

Personal Shopping fun with C95’s Bachelorette!

The Christmas break meant delicious food, warm cozy living rooms, family and friends gathering, but also logo re-vamp! I have officially launched my new Trend Blazer logo - complete with un-used photos from my FASHION Magazine shoot with the incredibly talented Carey Shaw. It’s a new year, a new look, and I am very much looking forward to the exciting months ahead!

NEW Logo!

This fall has been a whirlwind to say the least! Since accepting a permanent full-time position with Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, as of November, my professional world has been completely overhauled. I no longer reside at The Two-Twenty (I now call the Delta Bessborough my daytime abode), I am maintaining a select group of clients whom I would miss working with far too much, and I am working on numerous fashion events in Saskatoon. One of which includes a large charity fundraiser for Dress for Success on March 7th. 

The hectic pace of this “trend blazing” life generally makes for long days and endless numbers of meetings, but I must say this heavily involved lifestyle is a way-of-life. And I will be using this blog as my way to remember all the different projects I work on (believe me I feel like I’ve forgotten many already!) 

More updates to come. Happy holidays!
