AY YO!! If you've been following me on social media then you know that I've been in New York as a guest of H&M for the Alexander Wang for H&M collaboration launch! From press conferences to the mucho-coveted fashion show! This has definitely been an experience for the books! It's been a short but oh so sweet trip and it was really cool getting really immersed in the world of H&M and hanging out with the homies from team Canada #ShoutOutToMyGirlEmily lol! Here are a few moments from the private press conference where Vogue editor Sally Singer gave a one on one conversation with Alexander Wang & Margareta van den Bosch about how the collaboration came about.. Margareta, the brains behind the collaborative efforts of H&M noted that the huge influx of work-out-to-fashion style played a big role in the collab... Then I have some moments from the show.. Ou the show! I can't wait to share my favourite looks and ontop of it the VIDEO of the runway and YASSSSS you already know Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott!!!! #YAS #YAS #YAS!!

Can I just say that if there is anyone that knows how to create some buzz it's Chanel! From finally posting on their much idled but anticipated instagram account to the launch of the new campaign/commercial for their CHANEL N°5 fragrance, titled “The One That I Want" written & directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Gisele Bundchen. If it's anything like the Nicole Kidman commercial that happened years ago, dubbed the world's most expensive commercial - which I am sure it is- I can not wait to see it!

In celebration of Maison Louis Vuitton's 160 anniversary, the house enlisted creative visionaries Karl Lagerfeld, architect Frank Gehry, photographer/director Cindy Sherman, industrial designer Marc Newson, Christian Louboutin and Comme des Garçons founder Rei Kawakubo to reinterpret the iconic LV monogram with a collection of accessories with, evidently, no barriers.

I am so #OBSESSED with this remix of Latch from Disclosure. It's a youtube cover + remixed instrumental and it all really just comes together so beautifully... Aside from that I am also equally #OBSESSED with my new bomber jacket, seriously, after probably months and months of searching I finally found the perfect situation. And the best part is what I learned is that it's not so much the designer as it is the style.. This is a classic MA1 style bomber jacket.. Right now there are some great bomber jackets out there from super cool designers like Gareth Pugh, Moschino, Phillip Lim and Vince...
One of the most popular photos from Balmain’s last collection didn’t focus on any of my designs: it was a shot of Rihanna, seated next to me at the after-party, and she looked amazing in her transparent top. Was I jealous? Of course not—I was inspired! -- Says Balmain's Olivier Rousteing on the new Spring/Summer 2015 runway collection. This season the collection takes you from extremes to serene's with monochromatic looks accompanied by perfectly executed cutouts and tailoring, to overwhelmingly exciting blasts of colours. My favourite piece? The white cutout & intertwined blazer (look 6, first look of the photos above).. Ou, I just can't wait to slay in that!!!

So, please take note please take note of my new fixation... A.k.a the body chain.. Yes you heard correctly I am rocking a mothafuzzin body chain, okurrr?.. I love the gold against my skin and the dainty-ness of it, especially when I wear my signature very loose tank-tops! I found some from some cool designers such as Gorjana, Jacquie Aiche, Vanessa Money, Heather Hawkins and one of my favourites from designer Chan Luu

Every season I am always so excited to attend the Diesel Black/Gold runway shows, both men & women’s, not only because of the grand level of detail and cool production behind each show but because of the constant element of surprise. I feel that every season designer Andreas Melbostad, strengthens the energy of the brand by incorporating new and refreshing design assets to the sensibility and soul of the Diesel Black/Gold brand. Whether it be using furs for fall or the signature rock studs and leather details for spring, each season always has a exciting added flavour taking each collection to a new level. This season there was colour, skin, classic style and a whole lot of signature leather and studs. The show was exciting, energetic and I am definitely excited to get my hands on some of the pieces next season! Also, make sure you check out the Diesel Black/Gold Men's Spring/Summer 2015 collection as well on my blog!!! Also, stay tuned to social media because I will be sharing my live videos from the show with the #HPPRINT Live Photo technology!!

There's really only one way to correctly describe that moment when it's 4:00PM on a Tuesday and you are arriving at your private appointment at the Chanel Corporate Offices in New York for your up close and one on one walk-through of Chanel's most recent Haute Couture collection. That one way, or more if anything word is #DEAD.. No kidding, it's MAGIC!.. Chanel's Fall/Winter 2014-15 Haute Couture collection crazily embodies all that Haute Couture is. The powerful details, the craftsmanship, the unique and other-wordly embroidery, and the overall presence of the house. I had the honour of getting all up in it with these pieces and can't even really explain just how magnificent the work behind these pieces are. From the concrete, yes, Karl used concrete as embroidery on some of these pieces to the plastic laminated lace, every inch of every textile was thought out and created to make fashion lovers around the world dream.. Enjoy these photos and remember to stay tuned for my #HPPrint Live Print photos that will come to life with exclusive videos from my experience at my Chanel Haute Couture appointment...
