Lizzie Borden Lies!!! ‘LIZZIE’ Starring Chloë Sevigny + Kristen Stewart

What is our fascination with Lizzie Borden? Is it that she possibly got away with the grisly murders of her father and step mother back in 1892? Oh yes, most definitely a major reason, and its this mystery that keeps fascinating new generations everyday.

We may never know, but that’s the beauty in a good mystery! The spaces between not solidified can be filled with many possibilities, and that’s what the new film “Lizzie” starring Kristen Stewart and Chloë Sevigny seems to explore.

If you know us well, and I hope you do, you know that Chloë Sevigny is just one of those people on the top tiers of everything. Goddess of style, art, a muse to many, and obviously one of the coolest women of all time…so needless to say, we are psyched for this film!

Check out the trailer, and you will see why!

Spicy stuff! Looks like a real nail biter, and the period details are absolutely on-point! Have a little bit of a feel where they are going with the story, but excited to see it play out in real life!

Glad to see Kristen Stewart staying dedicated to unique artful films since her return to the screen.

Two modern muses! SIDENOTE: Can huge Edwardian sleeves just take over the scene, already!!! Can’t wait for more inspiration to come…

The Return of the #Supercrawl Fashion Pop-Up Shop!

For months we have been excited for the return of the Supercrawl Fashion Pop-Up shop. If you are a dedicated follower, you may remember us doing the Pop-Up last year at Limeridge Mall for 10 days.

This year, we are so lucky to be open for over three weeks (August 3 – August 25) right in the heart of Downtown Hamilton right smack in the middle of Jackson Square.

Seeing as the Supercrawl Festival is right downtown on James Street it couldn’t be a better fit!

If you’ve been following us, you may also know that over the past few years we have been branching our brand into creating original designs using vintage materials and fabrics we have obtained over our years of purveying.

Well, this truly is an exciting time for us, because this is our first ever Pop-Up where we are selling exclusively these one of a kind pieces that we handmade over the last four years. It truly is a special honor to be able to showcase these designs, and hopefully sell some to appreciative style-savvy people in our city.

We share this with 7 other fabulous Hamilton designers and brands including Batik Boutik, Defective Collectiove, Design by Mallory, Kitster Creations, True Hamiltonian, and With Love Lingerie. The chance for local designers and brands to showcase in a mall setting is so rare, so we feel very lucky to be a part of it all!

Hopefully soon we will have these pieces catalogued for sale to the rest of the world, but until then, keep updated through our Instagram and Facebook for any breaking news!

Until next time,

GUCCI’s Karaoke Chic !

 

If you know us, like really know us….like really really know us; you know that we love a good ol’ karaoke jam session with our friends!

There’s nothing better – you get to let loose a little (often on a strange day such as a Tuesday), maybe get a little glossed and glam, be surrounded by the best people, sing your favourite songs, and feel like a downright rockstar. Best part is, anyone can do it, and because its karaoke – no one can judge!

We found it to be great for shaking those general nerves we all have, and that fear of looking silly. Once you are on that stage, you can let it all go, and just be free.

We even took it so far as to be hosting our very own KARAOKE CABARET every second and fourth Tuesday at The Casbah, which is an awesome local venue that immediately spoke to us with its red curtain lined stage and moody lighting – very David Lynch! We have a page dedicated to it on our site, so check it out.

But, what really got us was that one of our favourite luxury brands of all time GUCCI is up on the karaoke bandwagon right along with us!!! If we thought we got glossed and glam for karaoke, Alessandro Michele takes Karaoke Chic to a whole new level….

Check out these wicked cool videos via Gucci’s awesome Instagram page.

I’m telling you, when we first saw these we flipped out (in a good way)! Glad that karaoke is some sort of fashionable trend now, because damn is it always fun!

Maybe more people will get their butts of their couch, and join us for some karaoke fun times! Granted its on a Tuesday, but its great to break up that work week with a little irreverent joy.

At least, we think so . . .

The Eye of Faith Presents {NEW KINGDOM} @SUPERCRAWL 2017

 

Creatures of a day!
What is a man?
Man is the dream of a shadow.

-Pindar

 

SUPERCRAWL is upon us again! North America’s fastest growing festival is in its 8th year, and is set to be bigger and better than ever. Which is why we are so excited to announce our latest runway show entitled {NEW KINGDOM} to close the Designer Showcase in the Maker’s Market Fashion Tent at 9pm on Saturday, September 9!

 

+

This collection is inspired by the palette, modernity, and of course, glamour of Ancient Egypt and is a nod to a new society who embraces the {past} to invigorate the {present} and propel us all into the {future}. We are featuring both menswear and womenswear, and most of the designs utilize vintage materials for a truly one of a kind statement.

We’ve been preaching for years, but its a still a huge issue! We fill our landfills with so much wasted fabric that its killing our planet. If we can work towards helping reduce this footprint in any way- we are vigilantly dedicated to this cause- and if more people could follow suit, who knows what could change?

+

 

You are only a spirit

-Djehuti {ancient egyptian proverb}

So if you’re around this Supercrawl weekend in Hamilton, ON make sure you swing by the Fashion Tent at James and Murray and check out some of the city’s best fashion, and of course, our {NEW KINGDOM} at 9p on Saturday, September 22!!!

“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!
