Accessorize This!

Accessories are your best bet to jazz-up your look this Holiday season. Montreal has a cropping of emerging jewellery designers marking their talent in their own right. Read on as I profile two rising gems.

Handmade Bling
Looking for some heavy metal?
Brazen Design has what you need!
The hand-made and MTL produced line is an eclectic vision inspired by nature and urban iconologies. A harmonious embodiment of form and style seen in the use of real pinecones and gun imagery.
The bling maker Rachel Rachna Dhawan, being a balance individual herself (we met at yoga class), designs for “women who want to make bold yet elegant statements through their jewellery”. And that you will! The line offers three collections: THE BLING, designed in sterling silver pieces; THE ONE OFF, designs made from vintage and antique trinkets; and THE CUSTOM, one-of-a-kind creations for individual clients.

Feathering Finds
Polish off your look this festive season with precious jewels signed by
The line is a statement of purity as at the heart of the collection is the use of fine feathers. When asked why, the young designer Noémie Vaillancourt, states that she loves the texture and organic sensuality that the plumage instantly provides to each piece “I love the movement that they create”. Furthermore, there is a unique quality to each of her creations as no one item resembles another.
The Holiday collection is a glamorous expression in its shimmery chains and delicate design letting you sparkle and shine under the mistletoe.

Fashion Attack!

The November issue of Vogue Italia deems to be quite appropriate in light of being plagued for a whole week with a pesky flu (no need to be wary, not the swine). Being on mark with depicting fashion as a barometer of societal reality, the editorial depicts (or glamorizes???) the H1N1 epidemic. The brazen red-hair model shot by Steven Meisel, poses with an air of delirium on the brink of fashionable madness.

My only query is how to look so fashionable while feeling so miserable!
