Vanessa from 18karat says…
Dino has been hard at work creating wonderful new pieces in time for spring – and just in time for the launch of the new 18Karat website, www.18karat.ca. Now all of our lovely handcrafted gems are only a click away.
Crystal from Fashion Crimes says…
Fashion Crimes recently teamed up with the imaginative illustrator Glen Hanson once again, to create the limited edition prints for a retrospective party hosted by The Drake Hotel. Pam and Glenn go way back, back to the beginning in fact. He stylized some of the original artwork for the store, and so it was just the perfect idea to bring him on board to help celebrate 27 years of Fashion and Fabulousness. Glen was a presence himself, wearing leather pants, and an open blazer, sporting chains and edgy hardware on his wrists. The amazing artist’s creativity went beyond pen and paper.
It was the perfect way to end Toronto Fashion Week. The crew from Fashion Crimes and many guests sipped on cocktails named after dresses at the store, while they got to peak at some of Pam’s designs from past to present. Pictures of the Drake Event are available to view on Peter Tucker’s Flickr!

Ashley from Shopgirls says…
Shopgirls met Montreal-based designer Charlotte Hosten at Montreal Fashion Week and was immediately taken with her work. Her necklaces are a sublime melange of silk, glass beads, semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals and the occasional men’s shirt collar. Needless to say, each piece is one of a kind and worthy of any jewellery-lover’s collection!
