I had a wicked World Mastercard Fashion Week S/S 2014 season this past week! It was a lot of work as I was documenting my experience for Huffington Post Canada. Special shoutout to my Photographer/Videographer Georgia Esporlas and myself were on the run everyday for most of the day and all night into the early morning editing while eating take out! Thank you for keeping up with me and my madness! Hahahahahahahaha!. We had a great time!
Special shoutout to all the designers including, Kimberley Newport/Pink Tartan (ps: I would love to get that black body con dress with the oversize white flowers along with the finale white shirt gown), Christopher Bates (it’s all about the Black tuxedo pant and vest made out of pk wool if I remember correctly, you can throw in one of your handsome models too! hahahahahahaha!), Sid Neigum (loooove the laser cut dresses especially the 2 piece black top and flirty mini skirt AND the finale black gown), Joe Mimran for Joe Fresh ( loooved the cool blue oversize stylish track pants, the stylish Asian inspired pant with matching shirt, plus a bunch more! PS: It was great to see Canadian models, Jessica Stam, Lisa Winkler and runway sensation Grace Mahary killing it in your show), Bustle (love the floral pants, if you have the matching jacket you can throw that in there! hahahaha), HD Homme (loooove the opening silver suit and the red & black tuxedo jacket fine ass Elite Model Franco wore – PS: you had the most beautiful male models in your show!), Mackage (loove the leather pieces especially the shorts), Saio & Kyo (loved the taupe biker jacket with skirt and the leather shorts), Target (love the cozy casual wear and leather skirt Supermodel Erin Wasson whom by the way is one of the coolest ever!), Rudsak (love the silver leather overalls one of my fave Canadian models Zoe wore), Cara Cheung even though I missed most of your show I caught that cool 2 piece leather laser looking top with the matching peplum style skirt. To end my fashion week experience I hosted the 1st ever Fashion Night Canada at The Windsor Arms Hotel, Evan Biddell, Whitney Linen were a few of the designers that showcased their collections. It was refreshing to see a historical Chinese collection featured amongst the designers. I was especially happy to see one of Canadas’ Fashion Icons Pat McDonaugh in attendance. To end the evening Violinist extroidinare Dr. Draw KILLED IT and had the crowd on it’s feet, to the point where I couldn’t help myself by getting up and dancing. The perfect ending to a perfect fashion week.
Special special shoutout to the Hilton Garden Inn for taking care of me for the entire week! You guys have the best staff ever! I always love staying there, my suite was to die for! Another special shout out to the Sony Canada team who sponsored my WICKED NEX 6 Camera and Microphone as well as my DOPE Xperia Phone with detachable lense.
Until next season

I had a wonderful time shooting my cover story with the Citylife Magazine team. Photographer Extroidinaire Christoph Strube, Makeup to the Stars Paul Venoit, Editor in Chief and Writer Simona Panetta and the Citylife crew were an absolut pleasure to work with. A special thank you to them for doing the photo shoot and including my Walk This Way Workshops Camp 2013 girls who were all thrilled to be apart of the magazine.
Day 10 and the final day of my Walk This Way Workshops Camp 2013 had the girls learning everything about getting into the modeling industry by me. The camp ended with the FANTABULOUS Shawn Hewson Creative Director of Bustle Clothing and TV Personality giving the girls a candid workshop on what a designer looks for in a model! It was hilarious! Video to follow soon! It was the perfect ending of an inspirational 2 weeks! I then threw an afternoon party for my girls, mentors, sponsors, volunteers and friends whom help make this camp possible. A lot of tears as I tried to wish the girls the best for the future, as I was presented with a beautiful autographed scarf from my girls, as I was showered with flowers and gifts from my girls. We then ate cakes and partied like it was 1999! Oh shoot most of the girls weren’t even born yet! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Ok, 2003!
