While Mr. Fabulous was gallivanting around NYC for New York Fashion Week last week, there was a particularly fashionable event happening here in Calgary: TOPSHOP/TOPMAN opened in Hudson’s Bay at CF Market Mall!
I performed my first Instagram takeover of @immrfabulous and shared with all of you my excitement of the latest addition to the mall: TOPMAN is my fave!
I’ve loved the brand for many years and remember the day when it could only be obtained by a pilgrimage to NYC or London. I like it because it’s on the leading edge of trends and you can always find something unusual and exciting to spice up your wardrobe.
So what did I think of the new CF Market Mall Location? Great! Primarily because they tailor their selections in each of their Hudson’s Bay shops based on market research… I found that I was particularly suited to this location – How do I know? Because I bought it all!
Welcome to CF Market Mall TOPSHOP/TOPMAN! I’ll be seeing you again (really) soon!
Being invited by Grey Goose to listen in on a panel interview with the cast of the new movie, The Current War, was the TIFF highlight of all TIFF highlights.
The Toronto International Film Festival has become world-renowned for drawing in top movies and top A-listers from around the world, so to be able to be in proximity to three of the biggest – was a thrill!
The Current War (watch the trailer, here) is a biographic historical drama described as the “story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world.”
During the panel, writer Michael Mitnick said the story was more than about electricity – but moreso about power.
The Edison (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Westinghouse (Michael Shannon) competition was a feud between the “greatest inventors of the industrial age over whose electrical system would power the new century”. Add Tesla (Nicholas Hoult) in the mix and you have a riveting story of ego, genius and ultimate power.
I can’t wait to see this real-life story played out on the big screen. I love period movies – the costumes and sets are always so stunning. Each actor said how they felt this movies’ costumes were spectacular and they enjoyed embodying these historical figures…warts and all. That’s right, Fab friends – the handsome Benedict Cumberbatch does not look so dashing in this movie as the middle-aged Edison. But, nothing good lighting can’t fix, right?
Now – some gratuitous photos of the handsome cast.
…and one of me in my new dress!
Yesterday morning (thanks to my #fashionboss friend Megan) I found myself excitedly skipping down the street, on my way to attend Desigual’s Spring 2018 NYFW show.
A new collection with the promise of an unexpected showing; This would be Desigual’s first show under the Artistic Direction of Jean-Paul Goude.
And unexpected it was!
Dramatic & entertaining, the collection and the movements transported the attendees into a world that was as hectic and colorful as the prints themselves.
Absolutely impossible to explain, this was a one-of-a-kind show, you’ll have to see for yourself.
Scroll to 15:30 and let the show begin!
I personally have never seen a show quite like this!
An amazing job at leaving me speechless Desigual!
