Unfortunately, in my rush to get to the show on time, I forgot my memory card at home, sitting in my computer. Because of this, I was unable to take any photos at the studio, so you'll have to forgive me for the grainy screenshots.The hosts Derick and Melody (who did a great job filling in for their regular female host, Lois) were so kind and gracious, and made me feel immediately at ease. We didn't go over any of the questions before the show, so I really had to think on my feet, but I don't think I did such a bad job for my first time on live television!
The first trend that I spoke about was Pastels for summer. I brought with me two pieces by Wilfred, available at Aritzia.
The second piece that I brought with me was my own Rag & Bone dress from Holt Renfrew. I used this to illustrate the theme of the 1920's that was prevalent this season, and to show how pieces can be "flapper-esqe" without being too literal and costume-y.
The last pieces I brought with me were from Zara, and I used them to represent the trend of mixed prints (which you know is one of my favourites!). I chose two neutral coloured patters to show people watching, who might be a little frightened of mixing prints, how easy it is to do if you stick with like colours.
Derick caught me off guard when he asked me about my outfit, and I momentarily forgot where Martin Margiela was from (I just couldn't remember where Antwerp was, whoops!), but that was my only real slip up. I also talked about my love of rose gold jewellery. I was wearing a dress and blazer by Wilfred, shoes my Maison Martin Margiela, necklace by Alexis Bittar and watch by Michael Kors.
