WCFW - Genette Salgado


Up and coming designer Genette Salgado recently finished an internship in New York, and yesterday showed her Autumn/Winter 2011 collection during Western Canada Fashion Week here in Edmonton. This was her third collection, and was entitled "Baby Whatcha Gonna Do With Your Life." After the show, I got an opportunity to chat with the designer to see what lies ahead for her career.
As for her inspiration for this collection, Genette took influence from the Edwardian Period and used a wonderful mix of flowers and studs on her dresses. The last dress to walk down the runway took her 4 hours to embellish! As for the type of girl who wears her clothes, she mentioned a girl who is "super cool, laid back, loves fashion, and doesn't really try hard," but they also have a little bit of "edginess, and rock and roll" to them as well.  Genette also notes that she would love to dress all her closest girl friends, who are all strong, independent artists. In the short run, she is aiming to start something up online or consignment for people to purchase her clothing, and hopes to potentially continue her career in New York or wherever her career takes her!

For more information on Genette check out her website.

Above are some of my favorite looks from her collection!

The Berlin Wall





My journey to Berlin was an experience different from all my other trips to this date! The city was full of history, and it was a surreal experience to walk along the Berlin wall, I am never going to forget it!

Soon to Be Channelling Bill Cunningham...

I recently saw the Bill Cunningham New York documentary and it was absolutely phenomenal!! I definitely recommend you see it, if you have the chance. Bill Cunningham is the cutest, funniest, most charismatic little old photographer! Biking is one of my favourite activites, but since being New York I've always been a bit hesistant to hit the streets on a bike. Seeing Bill zip around at 80 years old on his bike has INSPIRED me to start biking this Spring in New York!! Until the weather in New York gets warmer, these pictures from biking (in Arizona during my spring break last week) will have to do!

 I was recently in Washington, DC and went back to Georgetown Cupcakes for a short shopping break. The shop is adorable, and the cupcakes look almost to pretty to eat! 
I got a box with a red velvet, lemon, salted caramel, coconut and a strawberry cupcake.
