Plus, the other fashion news that got us talking this week.
For Canadian up-and-coming designers mourning the cancellation of Toronto Fashion Week, all is not lost. The launch of The Suzanne Rogers Fashion Institute (SRFI) at Ryerson hopes to create opportunities and support homegrown talent.
The institute, set to begin operation this October, is the first of it’s kind. It will offer fellowships to selected students, providing third and fourth year students as well as recent grads with industry mentorship, master classes and funding to help them succeed at home and abroad.
Sounds like a major step forward for the Canadian fashion industry.
Love J.Crew’s preppy prints just as much as you love working out? Good news – the brand has collaborated with New Balance on their first ever activewear collection that’s available now online and in-store at Yorkdale.
The collection includes styles from New Balance’s core line that have been “J.Crew-ified” with exclusive colours and patterns.
Get your fill of paisley-print hoodies, polka dot tanks, colour-blocked leggings and neon sports bras here.
It’s all in the eyes – or should we say, eyewear. Get your hands on one of Chloé’s limited edition 18-carat gold Carlina frames available on October 15th, and be one of only 10 Canadians to have a pair.
Whether you like classic gold or a warmer golden brown, Chloé designed these round frames to make you feel like “the girl with the golden eyes staring up at the sky, dancing in the sea.”
Become that golden-eyed girl and shop the sunglasses at hollyeyewear.com.
After collaborating with several renowned artists, this fall Aritzia is featuring photos by Vincent van de Wijngaard on their (forever collectible) shopping bags.
According to the retailer, his vivid, culturally diverse work – which includes images shot everywhere from Peru to Paris – fits perfectly with their mantra Nowhere to Go but Everywhere.
We’re feeling a major wave of wanderlust coming on.

Okay, first – look, we have exciting new (Canadian exclusive!) posters for the Gilmore Girls sorta-sequel, premiering on Netflix November 25!
Second, OMG we also have never-before-revealed plot details of what's going down in the four 90-minute episodes!
In a release accompanying the photos, Netflix very casualllllly shares this little blurb about where we find our favourite Stars Hollow-ians, 9 years after the first series ended.
"...Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finds each of our leading ladies at a major crossroad: Lorelai’s relationship with Luke is at an unnerving standstill; Rory’s budding journalism career in New York has stalled before it's even begun; and Emily’s world is turned upside down following the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Richard."
Take a moment to scroll through these posters (organised according to the four seasons, aka 'winter, spring, summer or fallllll, all you have to do is call'), digest, reread and come find us in the comment section to share how you're processing all this.
Call your girlfriends.
Is it just us or did you also send a sappy text to your BFF WhatsApp group chat this a.m. after seeing this adorable photo of besties Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone at a screening of La La Land in New York?
Lawrence, who’s been keeping it low-pro for the past few months, stepped out to support her pal at the movie, which co-stars our secret boyfriend Ryan Gosling. Emma wore a dress by The Row and Jennifer wore a top by La Perla and pants by Ralph Lauren.
The two always have each others’ back. Emma recently revealed that she took care of Jennifer when she had a little too much fun at an Adele concert.
Oh, and just because we’re nice and have watched it 22 times ourselves this morning, here’s the La La Land trailer. #goslingforever
About a month after cancelling the remaining dates on her tour, Selena Gomez has checked herself into rehab.
According to Us Weekly, the pop star is at a facility in Tennessee receiving treatment for anxiety and depression.
This is Selena's second visit to rehab - she previously received treatment in 2014, that time related to lupus, an auto-immune disease she's been public about struggling with.
Also relevant is the statement Selena issued back when she cancelled her tour:
'I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges. I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.'
