Minnie Mouse comes to Toronto!

We are Disney's Fashion Ambassadors! Our fashion icon, Minnie Mouse came to Toronto so we could celebrate and host "Minnie Style," at Toronto Fashion Week. We had the opportunity to play "tour guide" our with new best friend! We took her around our home town of Toronto and we had the time of our life. We went to some of our favourite locations: the CN Tower, had High Tea with Disney's First Lady, went shopping on Bloor Street, enjoyed shoes at the Bata Shoe Museum and visited the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario). It was the best day ever! See the video here. It was truly a dream come true!

Minnie is quite the fashion darling herself! We all recognize her signature look and have seen her inspiration everywhere from high fashion to high street. She is a true fashion icon. "Minnie Style" is all about having fun with fashion. What makes Minnie truly shine through is her inner beauty. She is confident, has the most positive attitude and she inspires everyone around her to let their true selves shine through.

There were six fabulous interpretations of "Minnie Style" on display at the party, designed by the finalists of the Mercedes Benz Start Up Competition. The finalists were" Eliza Faulkner, Beaufille, Laura Siegel, Sid Neigum, BLAK.I and Valerie Tolila.  Each designer was asked to create a head-to-toe look for Spring/Summer 2015 that was inspired by Minnie Mouse. We announced the winner...and it was Sid Neigum! The party was such a blast and everyone was wearing their Minnie ears and rocking their #MinnieStyle. We had so much fun with our best friend Minnie, and we never want her to leave Toronto!

Alexander Wang x H&M Collection Launch in NYC

The Alexander Wang for H&M Collection is coming... and it's coming in strong!!! BANG BANG WANG!!! We are obsessed! The collection mixes sports and performance for everyday life. The fabrics are made for the never ending dance parties! The women's collection includes 38 exclusively designed garments including the playful everyday objects like the swim goggles, boxing gloves, and even a whistle. This morning we went to a press preview and heard Sally Singer interview Alex about the collection. It was such an inspiring discussion. Alex mentioned how he keeps all of his ideas on his iPhone and how he learned so much about technical fabrics and working on a large scale with H&M. Most of the collection was made in Italy and he was able to explore new concepts and ideas with H&M. The scuba dresses, fabric innovation and motorbike sweats takes this collection to a whole new level because everything was designed brand new for this designer collaboration. The only thing he brought back was the Freya boot, and he added a scuba sock in it. We love how he played with his logo! There are injected logos on sweatshirts, compression crop tops and tights.  It's hard to pick our favourite pieces, but we love the yoga mat, sunnies, t-shirt dress, boxing gloves, hats and puffy jackets.

The launch party was in Harlem at the Armory. We all took our seats and performers flew down from ropes attached to the ceiling and started climbing the walls,  and jumping and flipping off trampolines. It was insane!  It then went directly into a fashion show led by supermodel Karlie Kloss. The beats of the music were electrifying as Tyson Beckford and all of the models wore plastic sports face guards. All of the models looked like a Wang Army! Strong, powerful, chic, and athletic. Then the most anticipated moment of the night was when Missy Elliot came out on stage and the crowd went wild! She was so phenomenal...we are still singing Missy Elliot's songs... Get your freak on!!! She was the guest performer of the night and she was so unbelievable, she brought down the house!
The #ALEXANDERWANGXHM Collection launches Nov.6th, as well as online and in 250 stores worldwide. Check out the video we made on Instagram!

Our Visit to the Teotihuacan Pyramids in Mexico

We visited Mexico to do a Grazia Mexico photoshoot, do a conference at a Fashion University, visit Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's home and to see THESE incredible pyramids!!! The Teotihuacan pyramids were built in 1 A.D as a place of prayer, not burial, like the ones in Egypt. There are two major pyramids, that you can climb up. The Pyramid of the Sun has over 248 gigantic steps to the top and the Pyramid of the Moon has only 48 steps which is still colossal. So, in the heat and jet lag, we decided we better go up the Pyramid of the Moon because we could actually make it to the top. And boy, was it magical! The view, the warm breeze, the layout of the Pyramids all together is sooo beautiful and breathtaking. The huge hills in the background (our tour guide told us) are more pyramids waiting to be excavated. We really felt the spirituality of the pyramids and enjoyed the incredible view from the top!
