The Truth

The Truth

Lets preference this with I am not a couture designer. I can honestly say I’ve never even thought about a couture gown….not one of my own anyway. (I’ve definitely creeped Met Gala photos and thought, oh hellz no….obviously) I applied to this design challenge after the competition had already started. I expected the “thank you so much for your interest, we’ll put you on the mailing list” email. I didn’t get that email. I woke up one morning and before my first cup of coffee began scrolling through my email. Let me tell you, I jumped up real fast after...


What Fashion Is

What Fashion Is

Am I too young to runaway and bartend on a beach somewhere? No…I don’t have the body for it, but with this whole trend of “embrace your curves” it might not make that much of a difference. I hate the beach though, too much sand….sun kind of also annoys me. I wonder if they still need personal assistants in New York. I rather like that idea of running around the city like Anne Hathaway, piping hot Starbucks burning my hands. The burning part is what I can only imagine hot coffee feeling like on your hands, with so many years...


December Update

Rebecca Rowe

IT’S DECEMBER…WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN? See what happens when you own your own business and your mind runs a million miles a minute? Yeah, time literally flies away and the last time you checked you were getting dressed up for Halloween. What’s been eating up my time you ask? I mean…you didn’t, but if you keep reading I’m going to assume that you did…in your head. I’m in a pop-up shop! If you’re in Ottawa come down to Little Italy and check us out!!!! The Freewheeling Craft community has been so good to me with including me and my product...

Photoshoots & Fonts

Do you ever take the time to find the perfect writing font before you’re able to start writing? Like, by finding the perfect font the words will somehow flow through you just a bit easier then if you used the everyday “Helvetica” or “New Times Roman”? ….Nope, you are all reading this first line like I’m crazy, or nodding energetically thinking that someone finally gets them. I do friend. I do.  Now, on to more important things. As you can probably guess, I’m somewhat of a perfectionist (I know, weird.) so events like the photoshoot that happened today I really...


"Glamorous"

Rebecca Rowe

 Everyone knows what I'm talking about, when I say the "Glamorous side of fashion" Yeah, we're talking about the lights, camera, cocktails and heals so high that you're sure that if these girls were to trip their ankles would break. The truth is, well my truth is, that these events stress me out. In runways you've got months of prep for ten minutes of models walking down a runway. Which by the way, if they do trip and break their ankle it is NOT good publicity for me. Attending someone else's runway? Fighting jealousy, ripping those tights you're trying to...
