Wednesday night was the culmination of a year-long dream. Myself and Ally attended the Flare magazine x Hudson’s Bay fashion week party for Marques’Almeida, TOME, and Kaelen. I’m going to take a gander and say Marques’Almeida, more than any other designer out there right now except for maybe Raf Simons, gets written about the most on this blog. So of course we were peaking to meet the designers behind the brand, Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida. In person they were every bit as lovely and chill as the clothes they design. While I tried my hardest to restrain my inner fangirl, we gabbed about Toronto’s jerk chicken scene and the city’s best vintage shops. Apparently we also drank some wine and caught up with our friend Nicole Jankowski, stylish and talented fashion writer based right here in Toronto. [Look at that sick leather top tho.] But please forgive me if all I can remember right now is the exact shade of purple lipstick Marta was wearing.
