For most people, fashion is a way of expression; for me it was a support system. When I found myself lost or in transition I simply picked a new character to play and let that character loose in a mall. I would pick bits and pieces of the people around me and tried to imitate their appearance. In true alien mode, I formed myself to look like the inhabitants of whatever place I happened to be occupying at the time.

I love the idea of having a wardrobe I can wear when I am enjoying the outdoors and also in the city. Living in Vancouver there are so many opportunities to enjoy nature. But after a hike, I may need to go to the store or the bank. How can you dress for a hike and for shopping in town afterwards?

Know your body type. I know this should seem obvious, but I still find myself staring wistfully at store windows, wondering if I can squeeze myself into a dress or top that clearly wasn't designed with me in mind. I hear women complain about their bodies all the time, but there's no such thing as a bad body type. There are, however, poor fashion choices that don't highlight your best assets.

A new season means a fresh start, and what better way to make things fresh and organized in your home than cleaning out your closet. I bet you'll be surprised by how much you can accumulate in a year. The rule is, if you haven't worn something in a year, you probably won't wear it again anytime soon - get rid of it and make room for a few new items. Donate it to your favourite local clothing drive or sell online if it's worth a pretty penny!

Fur is luxurious. It's style-wise, culturally enduring and socially debated. Old money, new money and bourgeoisie in between, we love fur, if not just the look of fur.Fur also happens to be the most debated fashion topic. To Fur or Not To Fur? That is the question. How do you decide?

You can't go wrong with a new dress. Dresses are easier than they get credit for -- wear them solo, with a sweater, tights, booties, sandals -- you really can't go wrong. Bonus, it's easy to transition from day to night; just lose the jacket and add a heel.

Finding the right fit when you have a bigger chest is not fun. So many women have commented to me, "You are so lucky to have a chest." Not when it comes to finding clothes that fit.

With the chilly weather outside, this time of year layering options are really popular for yoga. Choose pieces that you can remove as you warm up once you're on the mat. Pairing a strappy bra with a tank and covering up with a long sleeve tee allows you to peel off the layers as you begin moving through your poses and start to sweat.

It's 2015, and yet there are no African brands selling in most North American stores, and where the raw materials are African, that message is not well-delivered or even sought-after. In the world of fashion, this represents a massive opportunity for fresh fashion ideas, business and growth.
