Why Canada is the Coolest in Fashion
I just saw this on www.style.com

Basicaly, it is a slideshow that gives all the reasons that Canada is a leader in the Fashion world....from Tim Blanks and Jeanne Becker, to Dsquared to all of our top models (Daria, Stam, Heather, Lisa)....

Here is the link to the slideshow:

Mercy is awesome - they've been around since 1996 - I believe they have a store on Spadina...maybe now on Queen - I'm not too sure...Stuff used to be sold by Psyche on Queen I know...
Anyhow, the 2 designers Jennifer Halchuk and Richard Lyle - they run Toronto's Fashion Cares show...

Also - are any of you familiar with Arthur Mendonca??? Google him - he used to assist David Dixon, who is another great Canadian designer...
anyhow, Mendonca's stuff is awesome...

Check out Toronto's "Fashion Incubator" - great website for Canadian Talent info: www.fashionincubator.com

Jssy4eva - Thanks for starting this thread....FINALLY someone did Karma for you baby!!

You probably shouldn't have mentioned DSquared among reasons why Canada is the coolest in fashion.

I like the fashion presented, but for a lot of countries, couldn't similar slideshows be presented?

It was fun to look at, nonetheless.

You're right, it totally could... But Canada is a pretty small country in comparison to the fashion superhouses, and is a more recent entry, so that's a positive point worth celebrating.

I don't think Canada is a recent entry at all, in typical canadian style, we've been there all along as a silent supporter. I'm glad to see us finally getting the recognition we deserve!

The funny thing about the style.com article is the music blurb titled "Tragically Hip"...I assumed it would actually contain a mention of the band itself, but no...I guess even opening for the Stones isn't enough to get them a little press this side of the border.
