The Fight To Make Canadian Fashion Matter

RevampCanFashion | September 22, 2016 | Canada Style
Clothing is power. Your carefully selected (or mindlessly thrown on) ensemble goes hand in hand with the industries that provide them. Industries that, in many countries around the world, are supported by the governments above them. Canadian designers need to be backed by a council that will promote the industry as an art form worth fighting for.

Body Positive Fashion Can Only Work If We All Come Together

Tia Duffy | September 20, 2016 | Canada Style
Body positive campaigns are essential for progression within the fashion community and media. Why? Because they remind us to love our bodies. They remind us the "perfect body" is a hoax. Having been exposed to the harsh realities of the media and modelling from a young age, I think it is imperative to influence teenagers/women/men to love their bodies as they are without changing them.

Why Seniors Should Not Neglect Their Looks

Timi Gustafson, R.D. | September 20, 2016 | Canada Living
One of the unfortunate but inevitable effects of aging -- for both men and women -- is that personal care like grooming and makeup seems to require longer and greater efforts. But it remains as important as ever, and so does getting properly and tastefully dressed.

Canadian Fashion Industry Needs Unity To Thrive

RevampCanFashion | September 14, 2016 | Canada Style
One of the main issues that the Canadian fashion industry has is division. The industry lacks unifying support between all major fashion cities in Canada. All cities must come together and within each city to have unity and support within ourselves. The industry is in need of something that breaks the vicious cycle of division and unites us all.

How To Layer Your Wardrobe Into Fall

Barbara Aleks Hecht | September 14, 2016 | Canada Style
Layering can be as simple as throwing on a cardigan or a long sleeve shirt over your outfit when it's cool and then taking it off or tying it around your waist or hips when it warms up. Or it can be adding another topper like a vest and then throwing a blazer or jacket (bomber and varsity are big for Fall) on top of that. All depends on the thermometer and what look you're going for.

Great Skin Is Way Simpler Than We All Thought

Marc Davis | September 9, 2016 | Canada Style
If you want healthy skin, you don't have to buy expensive facial creams -- nearly all of which are ridiculously overpriced compared to what it costs to make them. Nor do you need to visit beauty salons. You just have to realize that what's good for your body internally is good externally, too.

After Nearly 20 Years, I've Realized There's No Such Thing As 'Bad' Hair

Kayla Greaves | September 11, 2016 | Canada Style
When it comes to black people, our hair, just like our skin tones, aren't a one type fits all kind of deal. And for far too long, in both our homes and in our communities, we've allowed hair discrimination to affect ourselves, and our future generations in more harmful ways than we think.

I'm The Only Person In My Asian Family Who Wants To Be Tan

Madelyn Chung | September 19, 2016 | Canada Style
Most East Asians yearn to be pale, my Hong Kong-born sisters included. (Ironically, they're more naturally tan, while I'm the palest of the bunch). I remember seeing whitening creams on their bathroom vanity, and being scared because my mom had once told me Michael Jackson used bleaching creams to turn himself white.

Canada Needs A Fashion Council To Save The Industry

Naira Fragoso da Costa | August 25, 2016 | Canada Style
In 2013, Montreal said goodbye to its fashion week. In 2014, Ottawa did the same, and now a little over a month ago, Toronto has officially followed suit. How much longer are we going to wait for Vancouver to shut down their respective fashion week? But more importantly, how much longer are we going to allow our Canadian fashion industry to continue collapsing?

Growing Up As A Brown Girl, I Was Used To Being Called 'Fat'

Arti Patel | September 11, 2016 | Canada Style
In seventh grade, I took a family trip to India and my weight was the hot topic. Family members I hadn't seen in years commented on how "fat" I had become; and when I walked into stores to buy sarees or lenghas, store owners told my mom it wouldn't look good on me or fit. It was blunt, but it was normal.

I'm Not An Awful Person For Wondering About Renee Zellweger's Face

Elizabeth Bromstein | August 10, 2016 | Canada Living
Chastising people for natural curiosity while hauling out the same old tired observations about cultural sexism is, in my opinion, not useful. It's harmful. It adds nothing new to the conversation. And this conversation needs something new. You can do better.
