What role does fashion play in your life?  Fashion shouldn’t have to make you guess what sort of person I am. A good wardrobe eliminates the intention (or pretention) of dressing.  There is no guess work because the choice is always clear.  Breadth is not always the answer; precision is.

What role does fashion play in your life? My career takes up most of the time which can leave very little time for creative, extra-curricular activities.  Putting together unique and well-styled outfits helps bring out my artistic side to accompany my professional day to day life.  I shamelessly love being complimented on my style choices, and extremely proud when the piece is made by a local designer.

 What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective? Supporting our local, Canadian businesses and designers!
