    It can be easy to dismiss the industry of fashion and philanthropy as something reserved for the stuffy well to-do types. Often well meaning, the hype often surrounded by 'fashion that gives back' is almost certainly short-lived, ineffectual and novel. So it's encouraging to see young entrepreneurial types breath in some life and hope for the future of 'philanthropic fashion'. We chat to the Matt Dajer and D'Arcy Willams, the two brains behind Heart City Apparel, a Montreal based '...

    Allow me to take you all on a ride on this betchtastic voyage. In my life I have learned that there are generally 3 types of women: The ''Alpha'' Female The ''Beta'' Female  The ''Omega'' Female Now, I'm going on a whim here with the terminology considering I got a D+ in my Classical Greek history class. The Alpha Female She is the woman who has to see and be seen. She has to be the best, the brightest, the loudest and usually most obnoxious thing in the room.   Her claws are...

    Jeremy Scott fetishizes yet another American fave in his new plastic-fantastic collection for Moschino. While some critics labeled his SS15 collection as "brainless," others couldn't wait to get their hands on all incarnations of the most iconic "Bimbo" known to man, Barbie, duh. From toweling dresses to matchy matchy outfit vibes, every child star and club kid out there raved hard on social about this dolly-girl comeback. So forget crappy meals, take everything this season...

    Urban Outfitters isn’t a stranger to controversy. Whether it’s the Eat Less shirt, stealing designer’s ideas, or placing “Obama/Black” as a colour selection, Urban Outfitters knows how to stir the pot. Their newest fashion faux-pas is what looks like a blood spattered sweater. This is a pretty disturbing style for UO to go for, considering how most of their sales seem to be jumpers and hats previously worn by Johnny Depp. What a lot of folks might not know is that the sweater more controversial...

    The worst part about summer ending? Having to wave goodbye and welcome another at London Fashion Week SS15. The best part? These 7 standout collections. 1. J.W Anderson: I Want To Play A Game From out-of-scale buttons to ridiculously oversized leather sun hats, I was pleased to see J.W Anderson lighten up his tone a bit. Everything in this show was seriously addicting- chunky avant-bland heels, rippled up-to-the-elbow gloves, nautical miniskirt suits, full-on leather dresses, patches...

    Leave it to Marc Jacobs to take the normcore trend to the next level. His show at NYFW (New York Fashion Week), held yesterday, left beauty editors everywhere speechless when he unveiled his runway look. No make-up, not one drop. “Only moisturizing lotion and that’s it,” said Francois Nars, the head make-up artist for the show. When someone asked if they would blot out under-eye circles, Nars said, “No, we love the under-eye circles!” The models’ skin was left completely bare, however; they...

    Some generations are known for their hip music, crazy hairdoes, or their anarchist ideologies; our generation will be known for giving Justin Bieber a microphone (and an ego) and the selfie T-shirt.  Yes... You read that correctly; it seems our narcissistic, technology obsessed generation lacks in poets what it lacks in humbleness. I mean, the concept of a Selfie-Shirt (created by designer Timur Kim) clearly stemmed from a cultural/societal tendency of self-absorbed 20 somethings....
