Putting Myself Out There – My Fresh Collective Style Profile

Hey what's up?! How are you doing today? Me? I'm great feeling good and enjoy the this festive time of year.
Lately I have been exploring possible avenues for myself in the way of Toronto's fashion scene.  I had an interview for a fashion sewing class that I really hope I get accepted in.

In addition  I have stepped my face to face networking game by being more vocal about what I do and what my long term goals are. 

Recently I had a wonderful opportunity to do some modelling for a Canadian boutique called Fresh Collective.   They feature independent Toronto Fashion designers and currently have three locations here in Toronto.  Fresh Collective has been around for 10 years and was founded by a very cool, down to earth lady by the name of Laura-Jean Bernhardson

The cool thing about Fresh Collective is that they look for everyday women such as myself to model clothing available in their boutiques.  I thinks it's a great opportunity to feature their inventory while at the same time showcase the model's passions and interest, it's a pretty amazing set up if you ask me! 

 The day of my photo shoot was my very 1st experience with Fresh Collective and it definitely was a great one.  I was greeted by a friendly staff member and made to feel special with the attention I received.  I even got to select pieces that I liked and felt comfortable in.
 Each time I went into the fitting room to try on a garment I meticulously examined the seams, details and the construction of the garments. I was thoroughly impressed.  I wore designers such as MOOVment Designs, and Mandala Designs.
I marveled at the tags of each piece of clothing thinking about how special it is for a designer to label their own garments and share with the public their  very own creation.

The boutique is a wonderland of beautiful garments and various accessories.  From unique handmade jewelry to upcyled gloved to the ever popular Matt & Nat handbag line from Montreal, they have a great eye pleasing and affordable selection.
