Real Housewife Roxy Earle Launches Clothing Collection
The extravagant and ever so bubbly Roxy Earle is launching a collection with Le Chateau that drops today. Best known for her stint on The Real Housewives of Toronto, Roxy quickly became the most lovable lady on the show and caught the eyes of fans with her inspiring personality. Earle is now an avid body positive activist and is taking steps to change the fashion world. After being sent clothing from Canadian retailer, Le Chateau and being impressed by their inclusive size range, Roxy sat down with the team to create an “all sizes” collection including pieces made to fit every type of body. “This is the first time in North America that a big girl can walk into a store with her best friend and shop off the same rack. That’s a big deal. This is a moment in Canadian fashion and I’m proud that I’ve somehow created it.”

 

Fossil Launches Canadian Concept Store
Toronto’s Eaton Centre has become home to Fossil’s first ever “Makers” concept store in the world. The American watch and accessory brand launched their new 1458 square foot retail space with the goal of creating an in-person, memorable experience by providing product-related services. The store is focused on customization and customer service and features unique amenities such as a build-your-own watch station, engraving, and embossing and a mix and match strap bar to really personalize your Fossil. There is also a Service Centre including staff that can offer support for smartwatches, battery replacements, and link strap fittings either on the spot or by appointment.

 

 

Tomas Maier to Exit Bottega Veneta
After a good, long run of 17 years at Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier is stepping down as creative director. Maier was hand selected by Tom Ford in 2001 when Bottega Veneta was acquired by Gucci Group and didn’t show his first ready-to-wear collection until 2005. Working endlessly to revive the then-struggling Italian fashion house, Maier is credited for putting the brand’s name back on the luxury market. Bottega Veneta is now a staple of Milan fashion week and a must-have brand for accessories. As to who might be a worthy replacement to Maier? The question still remains without comment.

 

 

North Face Launches a Collection of Refurbished Clothing
Can you believe that every year, 85% of textiles end up in landfills? That’s clothing, shoes, accessories that consumers are just throwing away. North Face has decided to become part of a solution. The outdoor and athletic gear brand launched North Face Renewed, refurbished clothing remade to explore. By taking steps to reduce clothing waste, North Face has come up with a savvy way to recycle clothing while keeping their promise of quality. The renewed gear is professionally cleaned and inspected by experts at the Renewal Workshop; repaired to its original form by replacing pieces, sewing tears and fixing zippers; and quality checked to ensure it’s up to standard. The renewed collections include a full range of men’s and women’s wear to be worn, loved and recycled again.

Maison Simons to Occupy Former Sears Space
Large retail spaces formerly occupied by Sears are starting to get scooped up. The latest announcement – Maison Simons will be settling into its new quarters at CF Fairview Pointe Claire in Montreal. This will be the French Canadian company’s 16th retail location. Maison Simons is excited about their expansion of physical spaces through Canada. President of the company, Peter Simons says, “As we continue to grow inside and outside of Quebec, we know that physical locations are a vital part of the retail experience and go hand-in-hand with the growing digital economy.” The two-level, 100,000 square foot store will be one of the first steps in a new project to build a city centre on Montreal’s West Island.

 

GRAIL Sneakers Opens in Vancouver
Vancouver has a thing for sneakers and the retail market is surely reflecting it. Granville Street is now home to GRAIL, a sneaker concept store involving an insane array of sneakers and streetwear. The 3100 square foot space will carry popular brands such as Nike, Puma, Adidas, Vans and New Balance as well as some more obscure global brands like Karhu, Colmar and Leather Crown. With an offering of approximately 350 different shoes, there’s a something for everyone. GRAIL considers sneakers a “mainstay in everyone’s wardrobe” and is staying on top of the growing trend of athleisure.

 

Remembering the Legendary Kate Spade
Sparkles floating in phone cases, animal shaped bags, necklaces with bright pink baubles, earrings with chandeliers of fringe, polka dot stationary and the iconic Sam bag – Kate Spade not only left behind her sparkling personality but her playful, extraordinary talents. The 55-year-old designer was found dead in her apartment in Manhattan Tuesday morning. As the fashion world mourns another loss and sends thoughts and love to the family and friends, we know we will always remember her unique style, her impactful designs and her bright smile.

 

Doublet Wins LVMH Prize
And the winner is…. Masayuki Ino of Doublet! The Tokyo-based designer tells Vogue after winning that he did not expect to win and is left feeling “a little shocked”. As the winner of the grand prize, Ino will receive a year of mentoring from the star-studded jury including the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquière, Humberto Leon, Carol Lim, Jonathan Anderson, and Clare Waight Keller as well as €300,000 to grow his brand. His experimental and gender neutral designs were the right amount of stylish while impressing the judges with innovation and advanced textiles. As for now, the 38-year-old designer said he is going to focus on the basics – “just keep doing good design, and deliver it on time.”

5 Plus Size Luxury Fashion Hacks
But friends, times they are a-changin’ and more and more designers are becoming exclusive to all sizes and shapes. Christian Siriano stocks select garments up to a 22W and Moda Operandi is offering a bevy of size 16 dresses and is eyeing more size inclusivity. Yet, change is slow to take effect. Uncle Karl is still siding with sizeism and let’s face it, most European luxury garments fit on the smaller side. Before big tears roll down your face and leave water marks on the vachetta of your Louis, I have some stealthy ways to keep up with the fashion set.

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadapic1

Luxury Children’s Wear Brand Opens in Canada
Bonpoint, a Paris-based kidswear brand is branching into Canada by opening a standalone store in Vancouver. Located in Vancouver’s affluent West Side, Bonpoint has situated itself to target wealthy families, with some items costing hundreds of dollars. The store will open in a 920 square foot space on West 14th Avenue. Bonpoint carries a full line of upscale fashions with sizes from newborns to children as well as footwear, sunglasses, perfume and skincare. If the standalone store sees success in Vancouver, we can expect another Canadian location pop up soon in Toronto.

 

New Azzedine Alaïa Exhibition in London
“The Couturier”, a new exhibition showcasing Azzedine Alaïa pieces opened yesterday in London’s Design Museum. Nearly 60 dresses, including some very recognizable Alaïas, are framed in collections around screens he wanted to be designed by friends and artists he admired. From his iconic bandage dress to Tina Turner’s gold beaded number to the 2003 endless zipper dress famously photographed on Naomi Campbell. The exhibit is an exciting stroll through his long noted career.

 

No Frills Launches Merchandise Brand
The popular discount grocery store has indeed launched a small line of clothing available online only at haulershop.com. There are three T-shirts, a long sleeve and a hoodie all covered with the word “hauler” – a special name No Frills has deemed its shoppers. The tees and hoodies are limited edition and are meant to celebrate the No Frills loyal customers. That’s one way to support your grocery store!

 

H&M Launches Modest Clothing Line
Following the fashion industry’s march towards diversity and inclusivity, H&M has introduced a new modest clothing line available exclusively online. The collection incorporates conservative silhouettes with fashion-forward elements that are on trend such as ruffled skirts and detailed jacquard print pants. The retail giant currently operates in 69 markets and is taking steps to offer more of a “something for everyone” type of approach.

 

Highlights from the 2018 Met Gala
Does anyone else feel like the Met Gala is the new Oscars? I can barely contain my excitement to see how celebrities, designers and influencers interpret the theme into their outfits. This year attendees were devoted, making “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” a visual delight. We saw opulent headpieces, glorious capes and detailed, cross encrusted gowns. SZA, Rihanna, Jasmine Sanders, Stella Maxwell, Blake Lively and Priyanka Chopra made our best-dressed list. Who was on yours?

Fashion Jobs – Tips for Pitching Your Next Promotion or Raise

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaTips For Pitching Your Next Promotion Or Raise_Inspiration

Stepping into the workforce and navigating adulthood isn’t easy for anyone, no matter your age or experience. Between finding yourself, learning how to work with different personalities and building your own mark in your industry can get really overwhelming and confusing. For the most part, a lot of us can look to things like workplace tools, online resources, and even our mentors to get advice on things like work-life balance and skill set development. But the one thing we find a major lack of is advice on how to position yourself for a promotion and how to pitch yourself to your superiors.

 

A lot of successful leaders will probably tell you they’ve gained a lot of the opportunities they’ve had in life by going and asking for it instead of waiting for things to happen. It can seem a little bit unprofessional to directly ask for a promotion, especially a raise, but sometimes the reality is not every organization fosters a corporate culture based on internal growth, so sometimes when new positions come up it isn’t instinct to look within.

 

On the other hand, you might be in an organization that does, in fact, strive off developing and promoting from within so you want to be sure you’re well positioned to get noticed. Whatever your situation may be, learning how to professionally ask for what you want is one of the best ways to make your goals happen. Here are our best tips for helping you pitch your next promotion or raise!

 

Have A Game Plan
The best thing about any project is to have a game plan — and a strong one at that. When it comes to looking for a promotion or asking for a raise, you want to make sure your plan is executed right. If your organization strongly fosters a culture of growth, look at using the resources they have like development programs or skill-building courses. In the case of companies that don’t offer these kinds of opportunities, you can work on ways to talk to your supervisor and how your growing benefits the organization. Pitching a raise is a bit different and will require a strong plan that doesn’t come off too demanding but still gets you what you deserve based on performance. At the end of it all, your plan needs to professionally justify your request, otherwise, it has little to no chance of being met.

 

Highlight Your Achievements
Now that you have a strategy on how you’re going to approach this, you’ll want to be sure to talk about your achievements and what you’ve contributed to the organization’s goals. Promotions aren’t awarded to those who don’t perform and in a competitive environment, you’ll have to be sure that what you contribute stands out amongst your peers. When talking about your achievements, you want them to be results driven and how your experiences can contribute more to your new role. Highlighting achievements is even more important when looking to justify a raise request, but you can also look to things as new accountabilities added to your role or perhaps the addition of people to your team which require managing or coaching. Referencing positive performance reviews is also a great way to talk to achievements your superiors have recognized.

 

Do Your Research
Your final piece before walking into your boss’s office should be doing your research on what positions are available in your organization. If there aren’t any current openings, but you’re being proactive and getting your name out there you could work on pinpointing areas of the business that interest you and fit your skill set and ways to work towards them. In the case of asking for a raise, you should research things like job level and position averages in your region. You also want to take a look at your current earnings and what would be a reasonable raise percentage based on the current economic environment. With all this data in mind, you can ensure whatever you’re requesting fits reasonably amongst this information.

Fashion Jobs – Q&A with Emily Minion CEO of Chelsea King Scrunchies

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaChelsea King 1

Being comfortable, yet fashionable, is the go-to trend this year — from rompers, crew neck sweaters to accessories. And the newest brand to join this trend is none other than Chelsea King scrunchies. Bringing back an original classic is this brand’s go to. The name Chelsea King was thought of in England when creator Emily Minion took a trip to visit her sister in London. The name is broken down into two parts, the first, a borough in London called Chelsea where the two sisters visited a café. The second, when the two continued their visit down Kings Road. There, the name Chelsea King was born. Emily Minion recently took some time to chat with SNTF about her rapidly growing company, here’s what we learned…

 

SNTF: Where did you come up with the idea to start your own business? Why the scrunchie?

EM: I have always been somewhat business minded growing up. In sixth grade, I used to sell those 25 cent candy frogs to my peers and I would have a lineup at my locker at recess and lunch, haha! Since then I have had little businesses here and there just for fun. I was sewing scrunchies for my daughter and a few girlfriends told me I should sell them. My first thought was the loud classic 80s look, which I had a hard time getting on board with, so I didn’t think much of it.

 

Then that week I was out at the mall and saw the most perfectly well put together lady in Zara and she had her hair up in the perfect “messy” topknot with a black scrunchie and it looked amazing! I thought that if I could get people to see scrunchies in a new way then it would be something that I would want to brand and sell. It’s no longer about that bright loud 80’s look but about saving your hair and doing it in a more classic way. Four years ago, no one was really selling scrunchies so there was a gap in the market. Now they seem to be everywhere so it is important for me to stand out by using high-end fabrics, excellent quality, and craftsmanship as well as branding them in a way that every girl can see themselves wearing one.

 

SNTF: What advice would you give to someone else wanting to start their own company?

EM: Don’t define yourself by your brand. When I started this venture, I told myself that I would not define myself by what others would say about my brand, good or bad. It was something that I enjoy doing and promised myself I would always do it because I enjoyed it and therefore would do it to the best of my ability. I believe that as long as I am loving what I am doing, I can continually stay creative and innovative. There is lots going on in IG and other avenues of social media and it is so important to stay true to who you are as a brand and behind the brand as an individual. Don’t spend your time comparing yourself or your brand to others around you. Do the best at what you’re doing and keep growing and bettering yourself. And when you are on others IG pages or blogs spend your time encouraging others. We need to support and build up one another!

 

SNTF: What has been your favourite part about running Chelsea King?

EM: I am quite a creative person and Chelsea King is always pushing me outside of my comfort zone to learn new things and constantly grow. I look back at where I started when initially creating the business and feel continually blessed by how far it has come. I love the relationships that have been built because of Chelsea King. I am constantly meeting new people I otherwise would never have met and have created some pretty wonderful relationships. I love how supportive everyone is of each other, it is so beautiful to be a part of such an empowering group of women.

Chelsea King 2

SNTF: You’ve had some amazing collaborations. What is the process of partnering with someone else for a collaborated scrunchie?


EM: I feel very blessed to have worked with some pretty fantastic people and companies. We recently did a Smash + Tess x Chelsea King collab and it was a huge hit! What better combo then a romper and scrunchie, they just naturally go together. They sold out very quickly! Another collaboration was our Jillian Harris x Chelsea King for Mamas for Mamas. I absolutely loved doing this one because it allowed us to give back to such a beautiful cause. Jillian is amazing! She is so crazy busy, I’m sure even more so than she lets on; yet, still makes time to do things like this to support the community and others around her. She has such a huge heart! That collab was a big hit. People love knowing that they are a part of helping others. And honestly, I just have the best customers ever!! Probably the best piece of advice I could give regarding collaborations, whether it be bloggers or businesses is make sure to stay true to your brand. Do collaborations that you are passionate about and that fit your style. Don’t just do them for the sake of doing them but make sure that they marry well with the story you want your brand to portray.


SNTF: Your product has been featured in magazines and has been seen on influencers all over Instagram. Knowing that, how do you feel?

EM: It is actually pretty surreal and very humbling. I never take any of it for granted. The highest compliment for me is when I see women wearing them all the time just because they love them and not for promotional purposes.  We get so many messages from our customers telling us how thankful they are that they found us; when women to go out of their way to message us explaining how much they love our scrunchies always makes my day and reminds me that we’re on the right track.


SNTF: Which scrunchie is your all-time favourite?

EM: It has always been the Heather Grey and I think I will always say that one is my all-time favourite. It’s such an easy everyday staple to have on hand. However, I am absolutely loving the Taupe right now. It blends so well with all hair types so it just works perfectly for everyone. People always stop and ask where I got my scrunchie when I wear that one. Our most popular and best sellers are our Neutral Collection.

Chelsea King 3
SNTF: Why should all women own a scrunchie?

EM: Our scrunchies are the easiest way to save your hair from breakage and hold your hair in place without having to restyle it during the day. They are great to wear during the day and night. Scrunchies are recommended by most hairstylists to save your hair and encourage growth. The Chelsea King brand is about function in your everyday life without having to sacrifice style. We offer a large variety of colours and textures for every woman’s individual style.
