Style Diary – 9 to 5

In Uncategorized on September 29, 2013 at 1:17 am

A two day delay in this post and I’m pretty certain it’s last of the “bare legs and open toe” look for this year :o( 

Don’t you just adore this super cute skirt from Clarisky Clothing, owned by Clarissa Gallaccio, a local Vancouver designer with bags full of talent.  Her main line being the Sweet Pleat Collection – feminine retro pleated skirts that are so fun to prance around town in.   And that’s not all, there is also a chic collection of pleated bow-ties!

Meet Jane Smoker!

In Uncategorized on September 14, 2013 at 7:05 pm

A week ago, I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Vancouver’s renowned Jane Smoker!  When Jennifer from Jennyfleur Loves… mentioned wanting Jane Smoker as the model for their new stock lookbook, I almost died at the wicked idea!  Getting to know this character was a naughty treat and I thought it would be in your best interest to get to know her too ;o)

JFL Look Finals-2

Who is Jane Smoker?

Trashy party girl, blonde bombshell, and a hard WERK-ing girl. Jane Smoker prides herself on being a well dressed booze-hounding bitch that you love to hate.

What does Jane smoker do?

Jane is a drag performer who hosts PROM at the Cobalt every month, impersonates Posh Spice in Vancouver’s “Spice Gurlz” at the Rio Theatre and performs at various nightclubs in Vancouver, with the most recent being at Fortune Sound Club opening for Brooke Candy. Inspired by the prettiest, most famous train wrecks in Hollywood, Jane makes it a habit to always look paparazzi perfect: dressed to the nines while trying to keep from stumbling.

Where can people see Jane Smoker?

You can see Jane at the venues mentioned above, and if you’re lucky…in the right alley way at the right time.

How is Jane Smoker different than other drag queens?

Jane always knew she wanted to be on stage, not that she wanted to dress in drag, but being introduced to that scene made her realize that this was an outlet. Her desire is to put people in awe with theatrical performances that go beyond the norm…to not only confuse the audience with a gender illusion but to keep viewers on their toes about what will happen next on stage through shock value and stage effects. You’re more likely to see her performing a dirty rap song half naked than a Whitney Houston song in a sequin gown.

How did Jane smoker come about?

Jane is a fabrication of all things hot, blonde and messy, beginning her reign of terror in March 2012. Her career took off after the Mr/Miss Cobalt Competition in March 2013, where she finished as the runner-up.

Who exactly are your inspirations?

Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Love, Anna Nicole Smith, Paris Hilton, Brooke Candy, Iggy Azalea, Courtney Stodden…and I guess we can add Miley Cyrus to that list now.

What is your fiercest and favorite outfit?

Jane has never repeated an outfit, so her fiercest and favourite outfit will be whatever she wears next.

Favorite look from the Jennyfleur Loves… photoshoot?

Smoke pants, blazer and Compton toque with gold necklace and gun heels look.

Favorite designer?

Favorite designers include JOYRICH, Unif, Brian Lichtenberg and anything from Dare to Wear.

What is it like to be Jane Smoker?

It takes a lot of attitude, confidence, patience and pain tolerance.

What can’t you leave the house without?

The highest heels, full pack of Belmonts and a buzz.

Vancouver Designer, Evan Clayton, to Showcase Sophomore Collection

In Uncategorized on September 10, 2013 at 4:38 pm

Evan Clayton is proud to debut his Spring/Summer 2014 collection, “KIN” at this season’s Vancouver Fashion Week showcase. The show will take place at The Chinese Cultural Centre on September 18th 2013 at 7:45 p.m. Using the migration patterns of the Northern Pacific humpback whale as a lens and the spectacular geographical pattern of the Pacific coastline as a backdrop, the collection implores a sense of yearning. Inspired by the sophomore iamamiwhoami album of the same name, “KIN” seeks to provide a sense of nostalgia to the viewer. The show also features a collaboration with stylist Kenneth Wyse and will be live streamed from the Vancouver Fashion Week website.

Evan Clayton is an up and coming local fashion designer who strives to marry art and fashion in such a way as to create political, personal and artistic expression. Evan is a skilled designer whose talents are ready to be shown on the world stage of fashion. Fresh off the success of his Fall / Winter 2013 collection “The Fall of Joan”, EVAN CLAYTON pieces have garnered much editorial and celebrity attention, including having garments owned by Lady Gaga and Sharon Needles, as well as having pieces pulled for Canadian rapper Matt Brevner’s upcoming Much Music sponsored video for “Pride”.

Evan’s influences include the natural world, modern pop culture, David Attenborough documentaries and a variety of performance artists. These influences can be seen throughout the body of his work in fabric innovation, skilled tailoring and by pushing the boundary of the silhouette. This collection caters to women who are unafraid of embracing their sexuality and who don’t shy away from making a bold statement with their appearance.

Well, I for one, CAN’T WAIT to see this collection!
