Skin Two Fetish Fashion Book

In a celebration of 30 years in print featuring sophisticated and sexy fetish fashion,  Skin Two Magazine is publishing a coffee table book called “Skin Two Fetish Fashion – the definitive album of fetish fashion.” Tim Woodward, the magazine’s editor, has curated a collection of the most iconic images published in the magazine over the years and I am honored to have two of my images for Northbound Leather included. You can take a peek at them above. The shots are from a catalogue shoot I did for Northbound Leather back in 2013. I have included the rest of the shoot below for your viewing pleasure.

Here it is! My first stab at making a music video. I am so grateful to have been able to work with Carmela Antonio – a talented, brave and willing muse. From the art direction to the production to the editing and direction this video is a product of our imagination and hard work. Elena Pacienza did the hair & make-up. And Carmela is a superstar. I am already looking forward to the next video, whatever shape it will take. Thanks for watching. xo

GUESS SS15.

Megababe Stephanie Drew and I went to Lotus Leaf’s preview of the Guess Spring/Summer 2015 line yesterday and played a little dress-up. The 34-year-old brand is getting back to its roots with jean staples and soft, sexy festival looks. On this -19 degree celsius day in frigid Toronto dreaming of Summer fashion is a welcome distraction. Enjoy! xo

Mikhael Kale @ Toronto Fashion Week.

Michael Kale-5

In a sea of blushes, pinks, creams, whites and silvers Toronto designer Mikhael Kale debuted his S/S15 collection at WMCFashionWeek this afternoon. Every piece had a touch of something sheer, a little skin, some sparkle, plastic detail and a unique construction. It is a futuristic collection that fuses ‘sexy’ with ‘elegant.’ It’s like everything Leeloo from the Fifth Element would wear if she grew up and went to the ball. xo

Haley Elsaesser @ Toronto Fashion Week.

HaleyElsaesser-3

All the way from Australia, designer Haley Elsaesser flew with her trunks of wearable treats to show off to Toronto. Her show yesterday closed the third day of WMCFashionWeek with a real feast for the eyes. Bold, youthful, fun,prints in candy colours were the backbone of the collection. Add a helmut of silvery sparkled hair on the models and the look was straight out of Harajuku. Every piece shown was fresher than the next. It’s a pleasure to see a designer having so much fun with fashion. In a season so burdened with the ease of wearing all black everything, lending to the dreary landscape of winter, Haley’s show made a playful splash. xo

Elan + Castor @ Toronto Fashion Week.

Elan+Castor-1

Toronto designer Leah Antoinette showed Elan + Castor’s new Summer ready-to-wear collection at David Pecaut Square this afternoon for Toronto Fashion Week. The airy knits and custom silks immediately had me dreaming of relaxing on a warm beach this winter somewhere gorgeous down south. It’s rare to see designs that manage comfort, coziness and elegance at once, but Leah has done it. Hand-dyed silks and hand-woven knits are highly covetable on the best of days, but on this cold, rainy afternoon in Toronto these pieces are a special kind of daydream. xo
