"My years in fashion design school were a constant mix between being inspired to pursue a career as a fashion designer and feeling detoured by the immense obstacles that a fashion designer faces, especially one in Canada.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to explain and champion why an independent designer cannot produce t-shirts for under $20, why someone would purchase a dress for the price it cost you to make it when they could get something for a 1/10th of the price at TOPSHOP, and why it is so hard to make a living doing something ‘so glamorous’. So when I see someone living out their own dream, taking the plunge and triumphantly producing inspiring, quality designs, my first instinct is to support...


...This fabulous leather jacket, this buttery soft, powder blue dream was designed and produced entirely by the exquisitely talented Anneke Forbes, our very own local fashion designer.  I initially met Anneke through the world of blogging, and like most of us aspiring fashion designers, she wore many hats.  Recently she’s re-launched her site, Anneke Forbes, to reflect her dedication to her designs, a place where you can shop her creations online.  This leather jacket is tailored-made to order, and the fit and attention to detail is comparable to all of the high-end designs that reside in my closet.  I can’t wait to see what Anneke comes out with next, and I promise to share it with all of you.”
