Historically, female designers have been behind about one in six of all collections presented at Toronto Men's Fashion Week. This may sound like a fair ratio for a menswear show (undoubtedly there exist some with no female representation at all), but I assure you that it is not. Women have as much business being at a men's fashion week as male designers do at womenswear shows around the world -- that is, a lot.
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.

A huge part of staying young-looking is dressing yourself to highlight all of your best assets. Whether you choose classic pieces or trendy ones, just make sure that you are having fun and not taking yourself too seriously. Above all, never ever wear something just because you feel that you "have to."
I remember the day my agent told me to lose 2 inches off my hips and that my thighs were getting too big. She suggested that I try yoga to tone down. I was devastated. She didn't see how hard I was trying to be thin. I was dieting and hardly eating just to keep my stick-thin frame. It was then that I decided to give up on modeling because I was ruining my body.
With everyone from W to Vogue magazine touting the return of chic eyewear, 2016 is building up to become a hot year for glasses as the ultimate fashion accessory.

For some, New Year's resolutions are about living a healthier lifestyle. For others, this may mean paying off debt, finding the hypothetical work-life balance, soaking up some new skills like a new language, or actually learning how to use chopsticks.
