If in Toronto on May 27th

I go this invite for Strut for a Cause on my email inbox; not only is it planned for a good cause- 100% of all the money raised will go towards a cure for children's cancer- but it seems that there are some well known international fashion names from Canada that are involved, such as Coco Rocha, Jeanne Beker and London based Todd Lynn.
There seems to be plenty of fashion entertainment planned for the night. If I was in Toronto I would go...

Good excuse

Canadian artist Terence Koh with lady Gaga and the infamous defaced Birkin Purple Diary

I was busy defacing all my designer bags...not really. I was just working on something pretty big for the past 2 weeks, it involves Canada + Fashion. That is my good excuse for not posting for so long... the big reveal will come soon.
I will just say for now that this is Canada's year in fashion. Mark my words.

On the not so latest news:

Already mentioned it, but must say it again Erdem wins the British Fashion Concil/Vogue award: "the biggest sum ever awarded to a fashion designer" in that country. Flower Dressing: Why Erdem is a winner. The Times

Canada + Britain Part deux

Tonight in Toronto the lovely Agyness Deyn and Tommy Ton are hosting a party, which has brought on the love blogging sign outside the entrance of the space where the party is taking place. Super funny. Can someone send me photos of the actual party?

And speaking of sending photos, thank you, it's really nice getting comments and material from readers.
Jane at the London Telegraph's Stella magazine sent this great photo taken at a British Vogue dinner for emerging designers which she very appropriately called "Canadians at Vogue" with Mark Fast, Jean Pierre Braganza, and Todd Lynn. Erdem might have been missing as he was collecting a big BFC/Vogue award prize, more on that later...
