I'm from Winnipeg as well and I find that the fashion scene lacks creativity, but then again I'm mostly basing this on my high school.

Oh well

Argentina has a terrible fashion scene
Most of the people dress in a really cheap way, with reaaally tight jeans and tight tank tops with inscriptions like "i'm sexy".

Then there are what we call "chetos", the trendy people with lots of money, who (mostly) dress all the same, the same jeans from Rapsodia or Levis, Converse black sneakers and whatever's trendy at the moment on top. (most of the time, all the clothes match.. eg: pink top, pink handbag, pink shoes, pink belt) At the moment these people are experimenting a little more and wering clothes from Ay Not Dead, which look very rock-like.. but one again, they all copy each other! No individuality.

And then there are the boring people with suits.. and some exceptions who dress really well, according to what THEY like and what really suits them, not just what is trendy.

^i tried to find the Ay not dead shop when vacationing in argentina but never found it.. (saw an ad for it and thought it looked cool) I must say there was incredibly much leopard print walking around in buenos aires!

where i live everyone relies on wearing a tan "leather" handbag and tan "leather" boots (which I normally like..but everyone has it, so it's getting very boring.

ok, first post for me...

here where I work/study the average style is llbean catalog for adults.
No, seriously. It wasn't a joke.

To go out, you get either the wannabe cool/trendy/hip that ends up being overdressed, or the I-could't-care-less type that wears sloppy jeans and xxl hoodie. Sometimes I see some very stylish and/or unique looks, and I feel like a stalker b/c I keep looking at the girl since it's so unusual.
I am not even gonna start with guys... the teens go for abercrombie/pacsun look, college guys t-shirt&kakis/jeans, nothig special.

Best part: people think I am stilish b/c I am from Italy (Rome). But I think the only thing I do different is just try to think 10 minutes in the morning about what to wear! sad...

*sigh* PN, New Zealand, wannabe LA street style. If you live in Australia, you'll know the bane of Supre, the shop opened here early-mid this year and it's taken over the city. All the teenies/trend followers have a hot pink Supre bag on their shoulder.

If I based it purely on the high school experience, allow for maybe like five exceptions, then I agree 100%.

Manila
Filipinos are now letting their creative fashion side free. It's a great place to be for fresh new talent and great styles

Here, a friend and i are both wearing vintage . it's amazing because in manila we get vintage clothes dirt cheap since most Filipinos arent up to wearing second hands. my black dress, for example, costs 25 pesos or 0.50$. amazing, i know

PDX- alterna-hipsters, outdated punkers.
The skaters and artists keep it real here, every musician runs vintage gear.

i actually have two of those palestinian scarves that indie mentioned.

as it comes to vaasa, mainly people look like dolls in h&m. there are some fine personalities in here of course, but they are rare. mainstream, thats the keyword. teenagers are worst with thei belly button shirts and too tight jeans

k I live in toronto and this is what I see

Teenagers: fall into catagories. If your in an alternative highschool or arts school you will be either a) hippie/boho b)punk c) 'alternative' (which isnt really alternative anymore at all. If you go to a public school you will be either a) american eagle fanatic (gap american eagle, triple5soul, etc) b)alternative again c)punk again d)gangsta sort of rapper wanabe style e)jewish american princess wanabe style

at my school I find it to be better than others but still its teenagers so on average no everyone has creativity.

boys:
abercrombie
skater type shoes (i actually dont mind some on guys)
birks
polo shirts
khakis and jeans
(basically they are all typical abercrombie looking athletes.)

girls:
shoes (uggs, those new raton boots http://www.frivolous.ca/accessories/raton.shtml, mukluks, moccasins, and birkenstock clogs)
clothing: sweats are big (juicy, primp, oo like their clubs sweats, and roots) jeans always (sevens, rock and republic, frankie b, juicy, abercrombie, fidelity, etc) I guess my school is very chalet inspired. Loads of winter sport influence warm boots over jeans or sweats (but people like the high end brands) burberry scarves, coats with fur around hood that go to knees or waist, long coats or pea coats. long thermal tops like the wafle material and thin tees. antyhing (good or bad) from aritzia, over the rainbow, holt renfrew, or tntblu. lots of tiffanys jewlery and chanel earrings

hair and makeup are minimal for these girls. Straight hair in loose ponys or buns, or with clips. burberry (fake and real) headbands. lots of messy but welldone hair and every girl seems to have a salon they go to a lot.

for me i add more tsubi, sass and bide, bettina liano, and vintage for everyday. I dont care too much for school and its pretty relaxed dressing.

I find Toronto much better than some cities in Canada but it still is quite boring especially for teenagers.
