Holt Renfrew Unveils Fashion Blogger Windows

From Germany to Italy, let's move on to cool Canada! I have known this for quite some time now but I didn't want to blog about it until it's officially out there and Womens Wear Daily beat me to it. Trust me when I say it wasn't easy keeping this under wraps.

In about two days (this Friday evening), the glorious folks over at the 170-year old Holt Renfrew, Canada's leading luxury retail institution, will unveil their new window installations celebrating their favourite bloggers: the humble ickle 'ol me, The Sartorialist, Sea of Shoes, Garancedore, I Want I Got and Jak & Jil.

Holt Renfrew

Why are they celebrating fashion bloggers? According to Holt Renfrew Creative Director John Gerhardt:

"Bloggers have become the fashion world's new celebrities. They're knowledgeable and influential contributors to the modern media landscape. Their opinions and visuals are relevant, creative and thought-provoking, providing a constant source of inspiration. We are honoured to pay homage to their style."

If you live in Canada, be sure to pay a visit to nine of their locations in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton to see the installations. I wish I could see the actual unveiling but alas, I'll be in Paris this Friday.

Don't forget to take photographs! I'm very curious what my window display would look like — send me pics. It's not every day a highly-regarded international retail institution pay tribute to my antics… I mean COME ON, not even Shoemart (or Rustan's) in the Philippines probably doesn't even know I exist!!! But that's ok. Haha. I know my target audience quite well. ;)

To the lovely folks at Holt Renfrew, thank you…thank YOU so much for this very, very generous tribute. We're truly honoured!

The Cobrasnake

I totally missed out on The Cobrasnake when he visited Manila last month because of the rains and the horrendous traffic. But to be honest with you, I wasn’t at all worried about NOT joining the crowds because I knew I’m gonna see him here in Munich. That’s exactly what we did just a few hours ago — we finally got to spend quality time together in our hotel and we hung out in his room for a quick night cap.

A Memo from RAFW Bloggers…

A Memo from RAFW Bloggers…

Rosemount Australian Fashion Week might be over (and I totally missed it) but here’s a quick memo from some of my dearest friends, Sonny, Patty (whose life I feared for because of the trainwreck woman), Isaac, Matt (who made it at the Sartorialist), Helen (congrats on the IMG/Chic Report gig) and Hannah.

These guys dominated the runways and (teh interwebs) with their sterling coverage of this year’s RAFW festivities in Sydney.

Also, my beloved Sonny’s photos can be found at the New York Times. Talk about major upgrade. I hope they pay well… and I want a bottle of whatever that is that you were having! JK.

Thank you and I truly miss all of you.
