NEW EDITORIAL/ with Sleazy Corner and Pitch Zine!

Hey Everyone, it's been a while!

As some of you may or may not know I left my position at Topshop/Topman on July 14th to join the Nordstrom team as their department manager for Pop-In, a designated space for a series of themed pop-up shops that changes every 4-6 weeks! It's very very exciting, totally my thing, and completely new to Vancouver. The wonderful lady who started Pop-In@Nordstrom goes by the name of Olivia Kim and was actually Opening Ceremony's first buyer alongside Humberto Leon and Carol Lim.

I've been interviewing people since last Saturday and my brain has completely been squeezed of any ability to focus on a conversation - even typing this post is proving to be a bit more difficult than I originally thought. I'll definitely be sharing some photos of Pop-In a bit closer to the date and if anyone knows any very driven and out-going fashion people in Vancouver get them to apply! I'm still looking for full time people for my team!

In other news we have a new editorial online with Pitch-Zine featuring Korean unisex loungewear brand, Sleazy Corner.

Below are some of my favourite spreads from the editorial but definitely make sure to check out the full editorial on Pitch-Present!

Instagram is such a wonderful way to meet people. I've met so many wonderful people and brands through Instagram: Joel from The Hallowed Ground, Mikko from Mikkoputtonen, and OUIBONJOUR, to name a few!

A new brand to add to the list of friends is Sleazy Corner from Korea! They found my photography work through Instagram and liked it so much they sent me a few pieces from their SS15 capsule collection! Sleazy Corner is a cheeky unisex loungewear brand made from premium fabrics - their SS15 capsule collection features the slogan "Please don't tell my mom, I'm home." on all their tops along with a cap that reads "Please don't tell." Their garment construction is specially designed to fit on both the male and female figure...

NEW EDITORIAL/ How Summer Comes So Quickly ft. Josh Beech

Had an AMAZING time shooting Josh Beech a few weeks ago! Now I know a lot of you don't know who he is, and that's ok! But let me give you some background so you know how exciting this was for me.

Josh Beech is/was one of my personal model favs when I was in high school. Between 2007-2010 there was a of new wave of punk models hitting the scene. On the mens side we have the trifecta of Ash Stymest, Cole Mohr, and Josh Beech. On the girls side, there's kind of just Agyness Deyn, but she is/was super cool too. When I saw them in editorial spreads my whole perception of "fashion" changed completely''.

No longer did mens fashion have to be dapper men in suits, or fit oiled up guys in thongs, fashion could be COOL and punk and FUN.

Now, I'm only like 3 years apart in age from the three of them but I remember sitting in textiles class and looking at my new copy of i-D with this editorial shot by Brett Lloyd and styled by Nicola Formichetti, as seen below:
