The Spring 2011 Clothing Show is coming up – May 27-29, 2011 – and is the greatest spot to spend your cash on discounted designer clothing, heaps of vintage finds, unique jewellery and accessories and even sell-off, sample sale items.
There are hundreds of vendors, mostly local Toronto fashion designers and craftspeople, who are selling their hand-made merchandise at amazing prices!
There are dozens of awesome designers and shops – this is a minuscule percent of some of the things I am coveting – all available at the Clothing Show this weekend!
Lipgloss and Black is an independent online shop established in 2004 by Canadian sisters Sylvia and Samantha. Specializing in clothing reconstruction – the gals take gently used vintage or deadstock items that are unloved and creatively transform them into fashionable, wearable pieces that can be loved again.
Le Grana designer Grana Khan grew up in Dubai but received her fashion design education in Toronto at both Ryerson University and the International Academy of Design and Technology. She has interned for Romona Keveza and Maison/ Beatrice Holloway; volunteered with NADA and Greta Constantine during LG fashion week; and did a styling internship for Ahlan! magazine in Dubai. All of Le Grana garments are sourced and made locally in Grana’s Toronto studio.
