Joe Fresh rehearsal My busy last three weeks are beginning to catch up with me. I could barely stay awake today on the GO bus as I came into Toronto! But I got my morning coffee and was off to the tents for the Joe Fresh rehearsal. We finished rehearsal at noon—who would have thought that it would take two hours to perfect the catwalk? Only for one of the best shows in Toronto, and this one definitely is! Then it was off to the Fashion Design Council of Canada.
12:30 p.m.
Rad Hourani casting Once I got to 30 Maud Street, I was surprised with an amazing opportunity! I was chosen to get the hair and makeup done for the Rad Hourani show, to show
Fashion Television! I couldn’t believe I got the opportunity to go on
Fashion Television again for such a remarkable show! I can’t give away anything on the hair and makeup yet (stay tuned for tomorrow!), but I’ll just say the clothes are the coolest collection I’ve seen so far. Don’t miss this one!
3 p.m.
Line hair and makeup
Back at the tents for hair and makeup for the Line show. My hair was gelled into a sophisticated bun, and the makeup artist created a big rectangle of eyeliner above the eye! HOT! The clothes were a whole other story—from furs to knitted sweaters, they were perfect for cool days. I wore a leather jacket with a long fur west over top, and I think it was my favourite piece I’ve worn so far this week.
