Canada's Top Models


Canadian fashionista’s always interest me. We always forget that Canada has allot of homegrown dressers, and for me especially, I forget how many of us there are. We can all remember names like Jeanne Becker (Fashion TV) and Caroline Issa, (fashion blogger) Kimberley Newport-Mimran and Joe Mimran (Pink Tartan.) But there are SO many other style maven’s that we NEED TO TALK ABOUT! 

-Lets talk about models; the gorgeous and newly bobbed Coco Rocha has been turning heads for years now, but not just on the runway but all over social media realms and magazine covers. Coco has remained a strong, steadfast, model that continues to impress the world as an example to young women.
-“Don’t work for under $10,000 a day.” That has been Linda Evangelstista’s motto since the beginning. The St. Catharine's native with her cropped hair and legs for days has been gracing the covers of high fashion magazines and countless catwalks since her rise to fame in the early 90’s.
-Dries Van Noten, Jill Stuart, Moschino, JPG, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, the list is endless, and Alana Zimmer’s has walked them all.  From Kitchener to MBFW this girl has taken the world by storm. If you’ve ever seen her grace a runway you will understand just how amazing she is.  Her legs extended to the heavens and so does her influence in fashion. She’s a classic minimalist with a flair for the perfect bag! 
-Back in January the lovely Yasmin Warsame enriched that month’s issue of Flare magazine in a gorgeous rouge Marchesa gown that would make your heart stop. The African-born, Toronto-based model has a knack for tugging heart strings and a figure that could sell couch cushions.
-Personally I have a female crush on the last model; Kristen Owens is a rugged meets 'the girl next door.' She’s modelled Thom Browne, Helmut Lang, Yohji Yamamoto, and Ann Demeulemeester. See a common theme here people? Hence why she’s the GURNGE girl, with the blue eyes from next door.

Canada has so many amazing designers, media personnel’s and models. We always forget that we are home to many of the world’s top fashionista’s. Sometimes I wonder where they got the itch for fashion, but then again some of us are born with it.
