Mikhael Kale - FashionCAN

Mikhael Kale is one of Canada's finest designers, always bringing innovative and edgy fashion to the runway. I didn't expect any less from the designer's finale show at FashionCAN.

I'm personally a huge fan of Mikael strictly because his designs are always on point aesthetically, always bring something totally cool and different to the table. Always incorporating edgy and radical elements mixed with timeless silhouettes.

The designer's latest runway collection is a perfect example of an edgy street-culture aesthetic mixed with casual silhouettes. The colour palette for his Fall/Winter 17 show dawned rose, grey and neutral shades with a punch of red statements.

The designer also revealed a cool new logo with flames, that can be found on some of the pieces either in a contrast punchy colour or the same colour as the material. The trend for Mikhael this year was definitely off shoulder frills and runners tied with a contrasting red material. Love the streetwear haute couture look mixed with neutral tones.

NATURE V.S NURTURE - NVSN

The nature v.s nurture debate can be considered as one of the oldest arguments in the history of psychology. Does who we are as individuals stem from a part of being human and our inner workings (nature) or as a result of our environment and experiences (nurture).

NVSN - 2016

NVSN Canada is a clothing brand that embodies the nature of giving back in order to bring awareness to mental health and stigma. A conversation that needs to be had today in the 21st century where something like sex isn't even taboo but what's inside our very human emotions and mind is such a hush hush conversation.

NVSN - 2016

I had the humbling opportunity to be a part of their holiday campaign that released their Nature v.s Nurture line! What made me attracted to this brand right away is the fact that 4$ from very purchase made goes towards NVSN's partner mental health youth program while catering to youth and suicide prevention programs. Here are some behind the scenes images from the campaign and the two unisex items that I absolutely loved taking home with me!!

I fell in love with the NSVSN black hoodie right away!! It's super cozy and the logo design at the back makes it stand out! This is definitely going to be my go-to clothing item over the cold months!! The white NVSN long sleeve tee is also super cute, I wore it with high waisted tights and tucked it in to give it a preppy feel. I had an amazing time collaborating with NVSN, I love learning about brands that are giving back in some way!! You can see their full collection here!
