MAYDAY! Celebrate General 54.

General 54, one of my favourite Montreal institutions, is 4 years old and ready to get a little loose.

The good people of General 54, Local 23, and their forthcoming store, “The Local Annex” are having a party. They will be opening the door of their pre-renovated and newest location to throw down a celebration for us all.

Kicking off the fun will be a Fashion Show. Wares from the neighbourhood worn by the neighbourhood.

Also a Silent Auction over loud music will be held.

Did I mention music?

DJs Roxy Moron
Dan Lafleche

This will be to be a night to remember.

Doors open at 9.
Fashion show 9:30.

Brazen Design at the National Women's Show this weekend

I'll be doing my first big show this weekend - I have a booth in the Place Des Artisans section of the National Women's Show at the Palais des Congres. From what I hear, there'll be a ton of free swag, free makeovers and runway shows.

For my part, I will have the entire Brazen Design collection along with some new pieces, and the much sought-after recycled leather fringe earrings - and if all goes well, my booth will be a custom-built-beauty-of-wood-and-bamboo to behold. I must remember to take pics to post!

So the show is 12$... but I have free tickets to give away!

Email me at info [at] with the subject line "Tickets" and the first five people will receive two!

And look! I have this 2-for-1 coupon for you to download and print! So you and a ladyfriend can go for 6$ each! Woot!

Springin' Lightly

I think it's safe to say that all Montrealers are yearning for warm breezes, sun and a respite from winter. It's looking like the weekend just may bring us that and so here's my spring fashion roundup. My eyeballs are thirsty for colour, florals and DRESSES. Mmmm.....

All of these goodies are made right here in la belle province by our incredible talent.
