I have been a part of Fresh Collective’s Style Coach team since last November. Mark Foreman’s labels Address and Bionic were an instant wardrobe obsession for me. His fabrics are stunning and I always found they suited my body type perfectly. It means a lot to me to support Toronto based designers which is why Bionic was a perfect fit as Mark is even from the same neighbourhood as I am, so I was thrilled when I was asked to model for and style myself for this blog Style Profile.

Name: Casey Jane Tuninga

Lifestyle: Letting the creative times roll
What’s a typical day like for you? Every day is a little different. Mainly I’m between Fresh Collective Roncesvalles and Kensington. I do yoga in the morning with my lovely roommate and go next door and have a coffee with my mum. When I’m not making magic happen at FC I’m usually planning photo shoots with up-and-coming photographers and designers.
What in your life is really important to you? I have a strong passion for supporting and working with local artist which is why I chose to be a part of Fresh Collective. My friends and family are a big part of my life and I am always making time to laugh and connect with them.
What would you like to be remembered for? I’d like to be remembered as a strong and driven woman who never gave up. A woman who succeeded in living the life she wanted. Oh, and winning a pizza pocket eating competition, that would be rad.

What role does fashion play in your life? I always remember the scene from Breakfast at Tiffany’s when Holly Golightly gets out of a cab and elegantly walks towards a building. She takes out a croissant and dips it in her coffee while staring at a Tiffany display window. She calls this her red days, whenever life seems crazy she gets in a cab and goes to Tiffany’s to escape in diamond heaven. That is fashion for me, its a passion, an escape, and a way of life.
What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective? That I am supporting local designers, I’m buying fashion made directly from the creative source. I’m also supporting a local business that in return supports me.
What are you up to these days? I have a blog I’ve been writing for the past two years about the ups and downs of being an artist and living creatively. However I make sure to include a ton of funny and embarrassing stories about being a mid twenty female in downtown Toronto. www.sailorparc.wordpress.com
I also have my Styling portfolio and Website that showcases my recent freelance work in fashion, television, and print. www.sailorparcstyling.wordpress.com
Is there anything else we should know about you? I used to be a comedian performing in clubs around Toronto. I also have an addiction to late night pizza pockets and Fresh Prince of Bel Air marathons on Netflix.
