About Anita Clarke
Anita Clarke is the editor and founder of fashion blog “I Want I Got.” One of the first and most prominent online fashion writers in Toronto, Clarke has brought her direct, no-bs perspective since 2005.

Clarke’s reach has made it to China with features in the China Textile News Weekly Magazine and the Ming Pao Daily News.

She was named a Toronto Mille Femmes in 2008 and was honoured to have two dresses named after her by fashion designers Greta Constantine. Now Magazine named Anita a Toronto Fashion Hero in October 2009 and one of Toronto’s most stylish by The Toronto Star in 2011. In December she was recognized as a 2009 Woman of the Year Honouree by She Takes On the World. She was been named one of the Worthy 30 by Shinan Govani of The National Post.

About I want – I got
I want – I got is about shopping, fashion and Toronto. The main concept of the site is that I talk about things “I want” and things “I got”. However, there are many other facets to the site: Product reviews; Reader questions, GTA sample and warehouse sale notification, fashion show reviews (Toronto, NYC, London, Milan, Paris), fashion news and Toronto events.

I can be reached via my handy contact form.
