A citizen's advocacy group has recently called Sophie Grégoire Trudeau out for accepting gifts and loans of clothing from Canadian fashion labels, deeming her "for sale" for daring to wear support for our country's industry on her sleeve. I can see how gifts and loans can make for some bad optics, even if the role of prime minister's wife has little real political oomph behind it. However, in a world where few powerful individuals direct their influence toward social good like Grégoire Trudeau does, Democracy Watch's threadbare argument seems to be more about populist-pleasing celebrity shaming than hypothetical conflicts of interests.

One of my Toronto Fashion Week highlights was the Greta Constantine show last Friday night at the Arcadian Loft. I've always loved how their jersey fabrics drape in a way that works for all body types and sizes. Clothing you can wear and still enjoy a burger... with cheese!
