Summer's End

Summer's End

Summer is coming to an end and I’m one of those people who is not mad about it. I love layering looks and matching a fun summer dress with some chunky boots. Plus who doesn’t look great in a leather (or vegan leather) jacket holding anything but a pumpkin spice latte? Sorry Starbucks, you know I love you. Local freelance model; Mylee Batista and photographer Greg Clarke took advantage of the last few nice days of Summer with a photoshoot in downtown Ottawa. This shoot was completely unscheduled by me, which was an interesting experience for me. Letting go of...

The PromoShoot & BTS

Miss Universe Canada delegate Erin Chapman and I go WAY back, I'm talking purple hair (not me...I wish though) and first collection (I was a mess) back. Needless to say; she asked me to be a part of her upcoming campaign I agreed in a heartbeat. This past weekend Erin organized a FABULOUS Luncheon where three local designers (Emina Fae, Avenir and myself) showed pieces from our upcoming collections in support of Erin's chosen charity: Operation Smile. Backstage of a show is always fun. You have models getting their hair and makeup done (by Radiant Raadhaa) taking selfies, way too well. I...

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...
