Geeky Chic

Leave it to style maven June Ambrose to knock us off our feet with shockingly amazing garb. Spotted at New York Fashion week last February, June was wearing a pair of Skeletal Heels made by Toronto darlings DSquared from their Fall/Winter 2010 collection. Untrue to form, June ditched her signature turban for a bowler hat.
Speaking of bowler hats, how chic does June’s daughter, Summer, look with a bowler hat of her own? June and Summer were not the only fashionable mother daughter duo during fashion week in New York. Remember Tessa? Watching mothers and daughters bop around fashion week to catch the shows reminded me of my mother taking me with her to all her social functions. It wasn’t a pain as one might think. Quite the contrary, actually. I would assume my own little world and interpretations amidst all the movement and noise. I suppose this also applies to the young girls who accompany their mothers to the shows. It would be such a marvel to become intimately acquainted with how children interpret what they see at the runway and on the street during fashion week, and what it means to them. Take note, Moms.

We Canadians seem to flock to the US and beyond in the name of fashion. Designers such as Dsquared, Calla Haynes, Michael Kale, editor types such as Joanna Hillman of Harper’s Bazaar, Joe Zee of Elle, and of course those of us in need of “serious” retail therapy. Admit it. When you want to indulge in shopping, your tendencies stray towards booking that flight to NYC with your best girl friends for a weekend. There are of course those dreaded barriers to entry commonly referred to as “time”, “children”, “spouse” and “work”.
So here’s the antidote: The Peacock Parade.
Nancy Sahota (left) and Jan  Gandhi (right) have identified a serious unmet need amongst Canadian women, and that is to provide luxury shopping at a sizeable percentage off retail prices (up to 70% in their case) of the most coveted and exclusive designer brands. Experience flash sale shopping at the convenience of your office, your home or even in transit with the help of a wireless device and WIFI. As if there wasn’t value enough in all this, Jan and Nancy have managed to finely curate the collections they offer in a manner that makes you feel you are shopping with your ever so stylish best friend. Yea, the one you quietly want style advice from but are too proud to ask. And if you don’t believe me, just look at the lovely pair in the photo I took at Toronto Fashion Week. Sheer evidence that these ladies know fashion and will stop at nothing to provide you with the best affordable luxury shopping experience without having to cross the border. I can’t imagine why any fashion forward woman in Canada would think twice about this. I signed up, now it’s your turn.
