Fashion sCares

I attended Fashion sCares. It was a blast getting dressed up and everything. I chronicled my adventure at blogTO.com. You can find the direct link here, Fashion sCares: The Costume Report.

I was the one and only Grace Jones and here was my inspiration and the execution.

I didn’t have the jacket, which looks like Issey Miyake so I decided to forget that and do the tried and true jumpsuit. I think I’m a fan of jumpsuits now, they are a lot of fun. Until you have to go to the bathroom. I paired the jumpsuit with a scarf to emulate the look of the jacket. Danielle from Final Fashion totally helped me out with the mask. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have been able to pull this look off. My next thanks is to Gail McInnes who did my makeup and completed the look.

Here are my photos from the night. After looking at them again, I realize that I did a song and dance for Rex Harrington that night. (Read the blogTO post, you’ll know what I’m talking about)

There are a few people in Toronto that make my style icons list. One is Mary from Holt’s and the other is journalist Nathalie Atkinson. She looks amazing all the time and is a huge supporter of Canadian fashion. She was a ravishing display of colour that night. Here is a run down of her outfit.

  • glasses by Rapp (handmade in Toronto!)
  • garden insect necklace of vintage buttons and charms, made custom to theme by the amazing Clare Ramen of Buttercup Days
  • vintage fabric clutch by Bennie & Olive
  • silk drape skirt and silk draped top both by Véronique Miljkovitch of Montreal (bought at the MADE show last season, but you can buy her stuff at Model Citizen and Basia in town)
  • shoes by Chie Mihara – not Canadian

    Andrew Sardone rocked the yellow shoes. I so want some.

    This DVP dress is fantastic, it comes in silver also. Perfect draping without making the dress hippy.

    Mary from Holt’s is my fashion hero. She has such an amazing sense of style. She also has the most kick ass jewelry I’ve seen.
