Montreal Fashion Features
Dot & Lil graciously opened its doors to the media on the evening of February 5th. Located in Montreal’s Mile End district, Dot & Lil is run by Anne Dardick, the CEO and creator of the natural products for bath, body and home. Amidst all the female media and delicious desserts, I caught up with the Head of Production, Dorian Mitchell, who informed me about the company and its aspirations for the future.
If you are like many of us and watch what you eat, you have noticed 'fat free' foods at your grocery store, or 'fat free' mufﬁns at the baked goods counter at your local coffee shop. So now the first thing I have to say to summarize my thoughts, “STOP the NO FAT”! Not only do we need fat in our diets, but 90% of these items that you see labeled “no fat” are loaded with sugars to make them palatable. Which in the end, is no better for you.
Montreal Fashion Week Spring 2014 was a season that brought about some big changes in the future of Montreal's fashion industry. On Day 3 it was announced at a press conference, that Montreal Fashion Week will be coming together with Fashion Design Festival in 2014 to strengthen the ties within the industry. In other words instead of 3 shows every year, the industry will be seeing 2 shows, fall-winter and summer-spring. It will be interesting to see this unfold, since this clearly is big news for Montreal's avid fashion crowd.
The LBD. We all have one hanging in our closets; it has the perfect silhouette, reveals just the right amount of skin and hugs your body like it's no one’s business. Ladies, it's time to put the Little Black Dress aside because the Little BRIGHT Dress is taking center stage this season.
