P: As for growing up in Toronto and now living in New York, how does the style differ?
P: What fashion item would you spend an entire pay-
P: How would you define
shion “I think that fa ress is a way to exp yourself.” P: Tell us about your clothing line.
P: When did you first realize you were passionate for fashion? ED: I was quite young. I can remember being fascinated by the clothing in my mother’s magazines from as early as 3! I would love dressing up my Barbies. After high school I went to college for fashion to pursue my career. I started by assisting designers at fashion shows to get more experience and ideas before I started my own collection. P: What was your very first fashion show like? ED: It was very nerve racking. But it ended up turning out very good. I even had Taylor Swift come and watch the show, and she even took some of the designs home with her. For the next fashion show I think I will feel more comfortable and confident with myself and the clothes. P: What challenges have you had to face to get this far? ED: There were financial challenges when I first was getting the collection together. Now that I am established and have been in the business for a few years my business has just taken off. The challenge at the moment is keeping up with the demand that stores have for the clothing line. P: What do you hope to see in the future? ED: I hope to see my line grow bigger and better. I hope we continue to put out a unique clothing line that the public would desire.
