Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaFashion Careers

Canada Goose to Open in Downtown Vancouver
The exceedingly popular Toronto-based company Canada Goose has announced they will be occupying a 4000 square foot space in the upper level of Vancouver’s Pacific Centre mall. The store will be located near the Apple Store – across from Harry Rosen and will feature fun Canadian themed décor such as marble polar bear sculptures made by Jason Carter, a Canadian Indigenous artist. The company, known for its down-filled coats have boosted business exponentially at department stores in Vancouver such as Nordstrom and Holt Renfrew, with some styles of jackets being pre-sold-out before even reaching the store. Local fans of the brand and tourists alike will be welcoming the store excitedly, which will be open in time for Christmas 2018.

 

Riccardo Tisci X Vivienne Westwood
Tisci announced via his personal Instagram that Burberry will be doing an intriguing collaboration with the Duchess of Punk, Vivienne Westwood. The pairing may seem like somewhat of a juxtaposition, fusing Westwood’s defiance of tradition with Burberry’s classic heritage, but I think we will find that opposites attract. Tisci said in a statement, “ Vivienne Westwood was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer myself. She is a rebel, a punk and unrivaled in her unique representation of British style, which has inspired so many of us. When I first started at Burberry, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to approach her to do something.” The collection will be released in December 2018, three months after Tisci’s debut collection for Burberry.

 

Laurence and Chico Open Fashion Café in Vancouver
The Canadian design partners have opened what they’re calling a “fashion café” in downtown Vancouver and it is… quite something. As we know from the duo’s designs, they are not afraid of colour, texture and looking a little out there. The whimsical space sends customers into a sensory overload, with details like fluffy chairs, eyeballs on the walls, a bathroom ceiling covered in rubber ducks and every colour under the sun melded together in paintings, rugs, seats and coffee cups. The café is split into two sections; one designated for takeout where you can also purchase accessories such as books, scarves and phone cases, and one offering a reservation-only afternoon tea salon. Since Laurence and Chico do have quite a niche following, the goal of the café is to branch the brand into a larger market that anyone can experience.

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada7d4832bbfe5d494b39b70625a6013a24 (1)

Let’s be real, the ’90s were probably one of the best decades we’ve ever gone through. Not only for culture but for fashion as well. Who doesn’t want to have a dance party whenever they hear the Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys or N’SYNC?  Fans still love their music so much these groups have even planned mini-comebacks. Who didn’t love Tamagotchi, Pokemon and the fun things you would get in your cereal boxes? While some things should really stay in the ’90s, like the infamous matching denim outfits worn by Britney and Justin, some things were made to last forever, including certain fashion trends. 

Choker 

Chokers
In the ’90s, chokers were seen on every young woman. The iconic plastic, braided, dark coloured choker was an outfit staple. Now, they are found in velvet, leather or gold, the options are endless. These pieces are no longer seen as ‘teen’ jewellery, but as a real way to accessorize. 

 overalls-460x690

Overalls
Think Mary-Kate and Ashley after the Full House years, styled with cute graphic-tees and colourful crop tops. While they may have been bulky and childish back then, overalls have gotten a total makeover. Overalls are now a made with a sleeker line and a sexier feel. No longer will you feel like a painter, you’ll feel like you’re ready to take on the world.

Denim Skirt

Denim Skirts
One trend we’re thrilled to see making a comeback is denim skirts. making a huge comeback. You can find them distressed, a-line with buttons, or just plain denim. Not only can denim skirts be worn as a fun and flirty outfit to hang out with your friends, but it can also be transitioned for work. Throw on an oversized blazer, a dark denim skirt, a fitted blouse with tights and heels, and you are all set.

2-piece (1) 

Two-Piece Matching Sets
As if! Matching sets are as iconic as Cher’s yellow plaid set in Clueless. These sets have now been taken into the 21st century. Not only can you get a coordinating set in tops and skirts, but you can also find flowy trousers and a crop top. The two-piece sets of now make you feel sexier and confident rather than ‘matchy’. They are also super fun to mix and match.

Fanny Packs
Fanny Packs are the most convenient fashion piece you can have. Biking along the Seawall in Vancouver? You don’t want to have to worry about lugging your purse around. Throw your ID, credit cards, cash, or whatever your necessities may be, and carry them around hands-free.

High-Waisted Jeans
They were first introduced in the ‘70s, reborn in the ‘90s, and now they have been completely redesigned today. With more options than just flairs or ill-fitting grunge denim, you can now find the high-waisted ‘mom-jean’, super skinny jeggings, and distressed. Jeans can sometimes be boring, why not have some fun with high-waisted jeans.

Strappy Heels
Circa Sex and the City, strappy heels were everywhere. Who didn’t follow SJP’s character Carrie’s, fashion choices? Everyone wanted those Manolo Blahniks she registered for when she married herself. Strappy heels are a great way to make shoes match every season of outfits. Perfect with a little mini dress or skinny jeans, these heels can be dressed up or down.

Bottega Veneta to Open First Canadian Standalone
Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre is quickly becoming a coveted spot for designer brand’s looking to open standalone stores. The latest to announce its Canadian debut is Bottega Veneta, expected to open this coming winter. The 4700 square foot space will open across from Holt Renfrew Men’s and beside Hugo Boss. Vancouver International Airport carries a range of Bottega Veneta accessories in their concession and you can find smaller collections of the luxury brand at department stores across the country, however, this will be the first full-line store to land in Canada.

 

Fenty Beauty Pops Up
On Wednesday, The Pennsy in Pennsylvania Plaza was home to a pop-up shop for Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. The event was in celebration of the new fall 2018 Moroccan Spice collection and was the first in a series of pop-ups for the popular makeup line. The theme was Moroccan Spice Market chic, complete with a hookah lounge, an Instagrammable supersize eyeshadow palette, products for guests to shop from the new and previous collections and even tents to try the collection, applied by global makeup artists.

 

Wear Your Label Partners with Hudson’s Bay
Wear Your Label was created with the idea of ending the stigma around mental illness. When creators of the company, Kayley Reed and Kyle MacNevin connected over their love of fashion and their personal struggles with mental health, the brand was created as a line of products with slogans such as “stigma free” and “it’s ok not to be ok”. Now, Hudson’s Bay has partnered with the brand to launch an exclusive “THE FUTURE IS STIGMA FREE” T-shirt in support of mental health awareness. The unisex T-shirts went on sale yesterday at www.thebay.com and all proceeds will be donated to  Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

 

Chloe Joins Yorkdale Shopping Centre
And another one for Toronto’s highly appealing luxury zone! The Paris-based designer brand has set up shop in Toronto – the brand’s first Canadian standalone location. The stunning new space is the first in North America to feature Chloe’s new boutique concept. Bright and open, the store is highlighted with polished brass, marble, and oak, perfectly showcasing a full range of accessories, footwear, leather goods, jewellery and ready-to-wear collections.
