Mad about Plaid

Mar 22 2010 Published by Las Valentias under media

“Once you can accept the universe as being something expanding into an infinite nothing which is something, wearing stripes with plaid is easy.” - Albert Einstein

Ain’t that the truth.

Odessa Paloma Parker recently started PLAID magazine – an online sanctuary for those dedicated to full spectrum clandestine design. Let’s face it – there are sufficient outlets in the magazine and online world covering the surface level of fashion and style. So what’s refreshing about PLAID is it’s focus on what I’m not hearing about anywhere else. Odessa hasn’t limited herself to one area of the design world. Her focus is to cover boutiques, designers, accessories and style icons ranging from haute to bas, local to foreign and cusp to proven.

Three print editions will be released throughout the year making this magazine a little more limited and a lot more special.

Honorable mention

Mar 17 2010 Published by Las Valentias under Fashion events, media

Colin Asuncion is a wonder man. He is pound for pound the best entertainer/artist/scholar/general person around. He performed in a production of West side story last year and promptly stole the show.


As per this photo, he’s pretty rad. Imagine our excitement when he invited Erin and I as guest judges in the SENSO SMC charity fashion show at U of T. It’s always a pleasure to support events for charity – this years funds going to help Haiti relief – but it was just as great to be on the same stage with Colin and enjoy the fun .
