“All the Glitz and GLAMOUR IN THE HAMMER 2017”!!! Video by Style Group

In our society, it’s easy to take things for granted. Food, water, shelter- all things that we wouldn’t second guess or question as being a part of our lives, are for too many people, a day to day question of when, where, and how? 

Here in Hamilton, Ontario many of these people in need are helped every year by The Good Shepherd who last year alone provided food and clothing for 61, 466 people, and not even including the thousands of tenants they shelter around the city.

For the past three years, we have had the honour of showcasing our own original vintage inspired collections at the Good Shepherd‘s fabulous night of fashion – “GLAMOUR IN THE HAMMER”.

This year the event sat upwards of 800 people, and showcased looks from 10 of the city’s unique designers including Blackbird Studios and a vintage retrospective from Milli’s boutique featuring some of the haute couture and designer fashions she has acquired over her many years providing luxury designer fashion in the steel city.

And in a society that is very focused on ‘self’ – it always feels good to feel compassion for people in need, and know that somehow through our passion for fashion we are able to help others while we do it!

Style Group is another fantastic company who lended their many talents to archiving the event, and here is a little taste of what the night was all about! Kudos to Alex Coombs for putting it altogether!

 

This year The Eye of Faith presented +GODDESS+ , a collection of one of a kind garments inspired by the kick ass-ness of 80s and 90s supermodels. It was a collection of pure glamour, and we are so pleased with the outcome.

We can’t wait to share our designs with you, so stay tuned!

Until next time,

GIVE A GIFT THAT MATTERS IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE! MIJLO: A Better Knapsack

 

2b7ef10cbd93cc56d3989ac543a6390b_large

Like any legitimate secret society, we here at The Eye of Faith are dedicated to the sole purpose of bettering our world. We often refer to our mission in terms of style and through education of the {PAST} to help inform the {PRESENT} and thereby shape the {FUTURE}.

Apart from this, we’re also dedicated to the reduction of waste in landfills by reclaiming vintage pieces to be reincarnated and re-appropriated to today’s fashion scene, and enjoy a a new life in our {SHOP}. This green initiative is luckily something on many minds these days, and doing your part for the cause can help dramatically shift our destiny.

Another brand who has taken to the green is the wicked start-up MIJLO, which aims to not only provide well-tuned, timeless accessories for the world, but hopes to also make an impact on the environment through a dedication to sustainability.

Here’s what they have to say:

At MIJLO, we believe that fashion doesn’t have to be fast, or disposable, or temporary….We believe a product’s lifespan should be as timeless as its design – simplicity and sustainability were an integral part of our design process.

Headed by designer Daniel Eckler, the brand is quickly making grounds in launching their product through a campaign on Kickstarter, and is already closing on $75,000 to get the wheels in motion.

And again, it doesn’t cost a million bucks to go green – in fact, only $39 and you get an exclusive Eco Print made from seed paper to literally watch your investment grow. How fucking cool is that?

I know I’ll be getting myself one of these this Christmas, and not only would you be getting a really rad knapsack for yourself or someone special, but you’ll also be helping an innovative team of design intellectuals grow, but you might just also save the planet.

You have until the 27th to make your mark. So please, check out the campaign on Kickstarter by clicking here and do your part to make this world a better place!

Give a gift that matters in more ways than one!

BURGER GIRL WANTS YOU…


If you have never heard of Benjamin Dukhan then please let me introduce you to one of fashion’s most intelligible of beings. His face has helped redefine the image of the male model, whom had always been young, spry, and smooth. While he is both young and spry, it is his scruffy hairiness that has helped make a mark for the man on the mainstream.

With a beard like Zeus, Benjamin has become a one-of-a-kind life force in the industry, walking for some of the biggest names out there, and bringing a manly elegance to each new look he dons. He has also shown up on The Eye of Faith in the past in our story entitled “My Demon Brother” walking one of his best looks in the Jean Paul Gaultier FW 2011 collection.

As well as his continuing stint as one of fashion’s staple faces on the catwalk, Benjamin Dukhan’s exciting multi-disciplinary background has taken him, and the industry, to new and unseen heights.

Beginning his career as a dancer, Benjamin has been able to fuse his love for movement with his unlikely chameleon nature in a continuing performance art piece called BURGER GIRL. As much an art piece as some sort of alter-ego or secret persona, the videos Dukhan and his collaborators have produced give rise to thousands of new notions of what it means to perform in front of a camera.

Not only is Benjamin pushing the bounds of what it means to be a “super model”, but he is also pushing the bounds of dance, art, video, music, and fashion to a world where each can see each other off and amalgamate into a singular dynamic art form.

So where do you come in?

Benjamin needs the help of as many people as he can to fund his latest BURGER GIRL project. Donated funds will go towards the production of his 10th and final video, “Vogue Positive” which will be featured on the official site, as well as on Youtube, and will most likely tour the European underground scene.

There are only four days left to make a contribution, so please check it out.

+You can make your donation here. +

Also make sure to check out his site to watch more original BURGER GIRL videos.

Benjamin is graciously awarding contributors with gifts according to the size of the donation, so best to give generously. It’s not everyday that a high fashion supermodel needs your help, so let’s pull ourselves together and do what we can for the sake of fashion, the sake of art, and getting these worlds closer and closer together!

Sincerely,

{theEye}
