Event: Made INLAND Celebrates Canadian Fashion

I'm really excited to share this post with you about an amazing event I attended recently. At the end of September, my boo Jessica (of Clothes and Shit) invited me to an event in the West End of Toronto (at the beautiful Glass Factory). The event, Made INLAND was a weekend-long affair filled with fashion, fun and friends. What I discovered was that INLAND is a hub for all Canadian fashion and apparel, showcasing local designers and entrepreneurs. Exclusively showcasing Canadian fashion, accessories and jewelry (and even a local magazine!) INLAND was a magical place filled to the brim with humble patriotism.

INLAND was exactly this - a simple yet stunning design by Peace Collective

SOM KONG's beautiful drapery, streamlined silhouettes and monochromatic colour scheme stole the show at INLAND. With prime INLAND real estate (the first exhibit you notice when walking in) - SOM KONG (a Ryerson Alum and TOM/WMCFW presenter) was able to get the credit is so deeply deserves.

Can we talk about Hayley Elsaesser though? The bold prints, the colours, everything. This brand screams fun and fabulous. I like to call it Canada's very own (yet still unique) Moschino. Hayley Elsaesser fashions just hit the World Master Card Fashion Week (WMCFW) runway last week! How exciting. Now please just make some plus designs, won't you, Hayley?

I am actually obsessed with the cool, laid-back vibe that Skinny Sweats embraces (FYI: 'skinny' refers to the style of clothing that Adrienne designs - as in skinny, straight legged sweatpants). The Skinny Sweats slogan is: Lazy, Sexy, Cool - and honestly, I'm all for that. next week's outfit post features something wicked and witchy from Skinny Sweats!!! [Skinny Sweats also fit generously, and custom orders CAN be placed for larger sizes]

NORD Magazine had a photobooth set up, and of course I couldn't say no to a fun outfit shot (especially after my phone died). I decided to keep my outfit casual, and rock my runners (the back problems never end) with an all black ensemble.
