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.

Fashion Jobs – 7 Must Have Accessories for Summer

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada2b6f2fdc21164e6b6fff80ab2804268e

Summer is the perfect time to play with all kinds of fun accessories since there are just so many types of occasions to dress for! Is there a wedding coming up? A beach day? A picnic in the park? The types of accessories you choose for each one of these events will be completely different, so you’re free to experiment with styles throughout the season. Since accessories are generally pretty inexpensive, you can also pack a solid bang for your buck with several options to spice up your summer wardrobe. Read on to see the seven accessories I’ve picked that are sure to be on all of this season’s must-have accessory lists.

1

Retro Sunnies
This pair of cat-eye sunglasses from Mango would be the perfect complement to any beach attire. The pop of red makes them unique from the many neutral shades on the market right now and adds just the right amount of colour to any summer outfit.

2

Espadrilles
Think of espadrilles as your summer alternative to sneakers! Either in a wedge heel or a flat, these warm-weather shoes are super comfortable for walking around and keeping you looking stylish.

3Statement Earrings
With this trend, you can really find a pair out there as wild as your imagination will take you. With beads, fringe, feathers or metals, a dramatic pair of attention-grabbing earrings makes a bold statement this summer.

4

Chic Sun Hat
A fashionable accessory that also protects your skin from the sun is a double win for me. The bigger the brim the better, as some of this season’s latest versions are supersized for ultimate style.

 

5

Woven Bag
Take a page out of classic French Girl style and choose a simple woven bag for all your beach essentials. You can also opt to keep your valuables safe inside a smaller pouch and use it as an alternative to your day to day handbag.

6

Logo Slides
Plastic slides are no longer just dedicated to beachside and poolside fashion. They add a relaxed, cool-girl vibe to any outfit this summer, and are just about as comfortable as you can get without leaving the house in slippers.

7

A multipurpose Scarf
Tie one on your purse, in your hair or around your wrist – the options are endless! A silk scarf in a bright print can liven up even a simple look and make it look effortlessly pulled together.

Classic Tan
You can never go wrong with a classic tan sandal. This classic look can take you from day to night with a quick outfit change. Casual at the beach, to patio dinner, or to wear at a wedding, a tan sandal is the best investment for a versatile shoe.

When you mix metallic detailing with dainty sandals, you get the perfect summer shoe. You can rock them with dark colours for more of an edgy look, or a feminine dress to add a bit of juxtaposition to your outfit.

Wedges
Perfect for brunch with your girlfriends or an evening date, wedge sandals are a great way to transition your summer vibe into the night. These could have classic straw detailing, or if you’re feeling bold you can opt for a pair in a bold hue. These sandals are the go-to for the perfect summer feel and will go with just about everything you own.

Heeled Mules
You’ll definitely turn some heads in a pair of heeled mules this summer, plus they’re another style that can be worn morning through night, dressed up or down. Start off with a solo date at your favourite café, followed by shopping, and ending on a rooftop patio with your friends. And whether you’re looking to invest in a pair or pick up a pair more affordable, you’ll appreciate how versatile they are and how they can be styled with just about anything.

Luckily, there are plenty of on-trend pieces that you can pick up this season to leave you feeling cool and comfortable in the heat, but still office-ready. Here are the top five wardrobe staples to include in your summer work wardrobe. Read the full post here

Two-Pieces You Can Wear to the Office This Summer
Summer style is effortless, fun and most of all comfortable, which is definitely needed especially on those hot and sometimes humid days. A seasonal favourite of most women poolside and also that’s become a big style trend this year on the fashion streets are two pieces.

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadafcbc5fbdc1bfe298ab697b7d8c6e695f

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.

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.

Fashion Jobs – Where to Find Designer Pieces Without the Designer Prices in Vancouver

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

ST95-ADSturnaboutluxuryresale_

Living in Vancouver, you see designer products everywhere. The streets are full of Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Louboutin and more. When you walk into Holt Renfrew or Nordstrom to yourself to a new designer piece, we guarantee you’ll be paying a hefty designer price. But don’t get us wrong, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing because the price is a representation of the quality you’re paying for. The quality, love and care that go into making these pieces are much better than what you would find in a ‘fast fashion’ store.

 

Due to the quality of these products, when they are taken care of, they can last for years. But the truth is, in Vancouver, you’re able to find incredible designer pieces without the high price tag. Consignment stores are a great place to find designer steals that are lightly loved by someone else. Not only are you saving money for yourself, but you are also helping out the environment by reducing waste. Here are SNTF’s top picks in Vancouver to find those most coveted lightly loved finds.

Mine and Yours

Mine and Yours
Here you will be able to find Valentino dresses, Chanel purses, Louis Vuitton shoes and so much more. Located at 1025 Howe Street, Vancouver, and open seven days a week, Mine and Yours have everything you are looking for. Mine and Yours take full responsibility to ensure that the products they are buying to sell are 100% authentic. There is a two-step authenticity check to make sure that the new owner will be purchasing a genuine label. If it is a fake, it will not be put in the shop to sell. The piece will either be destroyed or returned back to the seller.

 

Mine and Yours make sure that shopping is convenient for you. You can buy online or go to the store to find your new favourite piece. Also, if you follow them on Instagram, you can stay up to date on all their new arrivals. If you have lightly loved designer pieces you are ready to part with, for a profit to you, Mine and Yours buy these items on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Turnabout Luxury

Turnabout Luxury Resale
With six locations around Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, you have plenty of options to find one close to you. Starting with only a storefront in Granville Island, this business has exploded over the years. Not only have they been featured on national and local television segments, but they have also been featured on the radio and in print.

 

Here you will find all items are checked for authenticity to make sure you are getting the real deal. Not only will you find lightly loved pieces, but you’ll also find things that have never been worn. Many stores even send over end-of-season clearance pieces. You can come across high-end items as well as mid-range brands such as Lululemon, Artizia, Wilfred and more. If you aren’t able to make it to the store to buy those Lanvin flats, Gucci jacket or Prada bag you’ve been eyeing, you are able to order online. To see what is being added instore, make sure to follow them on Instagram. Turnabout accepts your lightly loved pieces through an online submission online or by bringing it instore so that someone else can enjoy it too.

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.
