Letter from the Publisher What a great time for issue 2! Spring is starting to push winter out the door, patio season on Argyle Street is just around the corner and Legally Blond - The Musical is playing on stage at Neptune Theaters. Line Magazine was lucky enough to shoot our fashion editorial on that stage and other exclusive areas of Neptune. Clothing, shoes and jewelry provided by Biscuit General Store are just a few fashionable examples of what you can wear both on the patio and to a Legally Blond matinee. Bold cobalt blues, mint green and yellows are three of my favorite colors that make up this springs color palate. The new clothing line produced by Biscuit, vibrantly named Bonanza, is abundant in spring inspired colors and prints. Along with stylish nautical prints and jewelry, the Argyle Street general shop is all AMANDA KINCAID set for the warmer season. I couldn’t PUBLISHER & be happier to be featuring Bonanza OWNER and other Biscuit lines. Some pieces almost didn’t make it back! We can’t wait to see what Bonanza by Biscuit does next. Legally Blond – The Musical plays at Neptune through to May 26th. Biscuit General Store is Located at 1661 Argyle St Halifax. Line Magazine: Inspiring local fashion

Letter from the Photo Editor Since finishing the last issue of LINE, things have been a bit chaotic - but in a good way! 2013 began with a number of hair shoots for local hair stylists competing in various competitions, including a large project for the good folks at Spirit Spa who are entering The Mirror Awards (see pg 3). Next, things got spicy toward the end of the month with promotional work and then event Brent McCombs coverage of The Everything To Do With Sex show, which always warms up my winter a Photo Editor & little bit. Following a few smaller projects, I Photographer jetted off London for a two day commercial shoot in the oldest church in the city - a trip which somehow turned into a 25 day fashion photography marathon, accompanied by Toronto based model Kassandra Love and Halifax makeup artist Elle Munster, where we shot garments by Halifax labels Orphanage Clothing, Veronica MacIsaac Apparel and Sasky, a Canadian Highland dance champion and surprising number of alternative fashion and latest labels from Toronto, London and Paris (see pg. 24) 2

All Sewn Up Halifax designer Kim Munson pushes the boundaries with her hands-on approach SARAH SAWLER Kim Munson likes to get her hands dirty. Known for creating edgy garments from repurposed materials, the Orphanage Clothing designer has been drawing attention to Halifax’s fashion scene with her recent involvement in some high-profile projects. And while her designs deserve the attention, she’s not just sitting around waiting for it—she goes out and gets it. That’s exactly how she landed her gig with Hawksley Workman. “I left a shirt for him at a concert.” explains Munson. “When I noticed him wearing it in his national tour photo, I contacted his manager and let her know it was mine.” After that conversation, Munson was offered the contract to make the clothes for Hawksley Workman’s next tour. Her hard work also attracted the attention of Canadian pop artist Shawn Desman. Munson was in the middle of a busy weekend at the Halifax Crafters Market when she received an email from his manager asking if she could provide the garments for a scene in Desman’s movie, Alive. The catch? She needed them the next day. “I pulled garments together all night long and went back to work at the market on Sunday,” laughs Munson. But the hard work paid off. Not only did Desman feature her clothing in the movie, he also wore a pair of Orphanage pants to his live New Year’s Eve show. FA S H I O N • T R E N D • S T Y L E

Munson’s garments also enjoy the spotlight in a new Vogue Optical commercial, which features runway models posing in Orphanage clothing and Vogue Optical eyewear. A producer that she had worked with before brought her into the project. Not only was Munson hired to design the garments, she also got involved in the model selection process. “We wanted someone with a little more experience,” explains Munson. She says that they chose the gorgeous female models partly because of their curves. “I think a lot of women can relate to them.” But the best part of the experience for Munson was being given creative control over the garments. The producer trusted Munson’s vision and gave her the ability to design whatever she wanted. Although Munson’s garments are designed for all body types, she enjoys creating clothes that flatter a curvy body shape. In fact, instead of following the typical industry practice of drafting and creating for size 0, Munson starts her designs at size medium and works up and down from there because she finds the clothes fit better on a wider range of people. Selling her line at the Halifax Crafters Market is one more way that Munroe applies her hands-on approach. “When I do the market I get to see my garments on so many people that I’m really connected to my customer base,” she says. “When you only sell in the retail shops you’re so disconnected. You don’t see who your customer is or how the clothing fits. When I do the markets, I get to sample.”

Second-Hand

A stroll through Halifax’s consignment and second-hand Whitney moran clothing shops For a city steeped in history, it’s no wonder Halifax’s collective fashion sense is eclectic yet timeless. Here you’ll find an abundance of second-hand, vintage, and consignment shops offering upcycled, altered, and repurposed clothing, accessories, and jewelry. Now, allow me to introduce you to a few of my new vices. “Vintage Row” is usually the first stop for those who wish to adorn themselves in the previously worn. The upper end of Queen Street boasts five used clothing shops— three under one roof! My first stop is Put Me On. I get the distinct feeling of having fallen into a tickle trunk when owner Pam McInnis declares, “we’re really hoping to expand our fashion section…we’re just getting started with clothes.” McInnis’s own adorable line, Cranky, is available here, along with Orphanage Clothing, Jere Brooks, All My Fashions, ZBQ screenprints, Miss V. (Veronica MacIsaac), Defective Stitching, Blue Ladybug, 6

and BOOTS (think leather bowties) to name a few. “Oh yeah, we also have a local anonymous knitter,” she adds. Local jewels include Magpies Finds, Woodland Wool, Pip Robbins, and—if you’re lucky—Crystal Southerland’s Barrington Street demolition rings. Beckoned by the More Shopping Upstairs sign, I find the quaintly nestled Second Storey and MAKENEW. “The whole point of MakeNew is that used can feel new,” explains shop girl Emilia Volz. The clothes, curated by Deux FM’s Anna Gilkerson, largely come from estate sales, after which they are reworked, altered, cared for and lovingly displayed. The result is a dreamy, feminine boutique of gently worn threads, and now includes shoes as well as many local jewelers, from the reclaimed leather of a.rae to the dazzling geometric bling of Cassiopeia Crystals. Second Storey is the newest shop on the block. Curated by six local artisans, everything here is found or made in Halifax. Peruse clutches by the versatile Clutch Culture, Variety Concert’s collage-inspiring craft packs (and SPRING 2013


jewelry), second-hand shoes (and, soon, men’s clothing) by Beespoke, thrift clothing and purses by DeNova, Kin’s beautiful knits, and the delicately glamorous jewelry of Half-Six. Next door, at Elsie’s, everything is on consignment, and owner Maureen Elsie Court wouldn’t have it any other way. “Consignment is a good system,” she says. “You have to be fairly organized…but if you’re choosing the right pieces and running it well it works for both parties.” As for what she carries, “I never know what it’s going to be…anything from Valentino to Lagerfeld,” she explains. “About a year ago, a lady brought in a dozen furs. One was a Russian worth about $50,000…you just never know.” Over the past 14 years, Court has watched consignment increase in popularity. She now manages over 1800 accounts. But shopping here is anything but a transaction. With clothing used to decorate the store, Elsie’s is a surreal experience—like going to a gallery, except you leave looking better than when you walked in. A sashay away, the Clothes Horse offers a varied selection of adventuresome, bohemian, flirty, and experimental duds—and the collection of vintage jewelry here is unrivalled. But owner Merle Bryant tends to avoid pigeonholing, and describes her clothes as “a reinterpretation of vintage,” and her diverse clientele as, “mostly just people who like to create their own look— who dress however makes them happy.” On Birmingham, Crimson & Clover is one of Halifax’s newest second-hand shops—but with a $5 room and a $15 rack, it has quite a following. Catering to the labelconscious, items here vary dramatically and can include anything from Banana Republic and Club Monaco to Chanel and Hervé Léger. Only here will you find Louis Vuitton and Coach bags, Frye boots and Manolo Blahniks. If you’re fashion-minded on a budget, this is the spot for you. In the North End, Lost & Found focuses on modern looks and upcycled local fashions. It’s simple: “If you want clothes you’ll actually wear, you’ll find them here,” says shop girl Heather Rappard. Fabulous local jewelry includes pieces by Caitlyn Rose, Natalie Vanderzand, and “master caster,” Jesse Tempest. For more unique finds in downtown Halifax check out Dress In Time, Penelope’s, Plan B, and Vagabond Vintage. Now get out there, give your browsing muscles some exercise, and discover the treasures our city has (literally) in store.

Go Big, Go Dior Sixty five years ago Christian Dior launched his fashion house in Paris. Dior wanted to create high-level (haute) couture dresses that employed the skills that French Fashion was built on. Nipped waists, narrow shoulders and full calf length shirts along with signature red were part of Dior’s first collection in 1947. It was coined the “New Look” by the post war fashion community for its ultra feminine style. Today it has come to embody the classic look of the House of Dior. In John Galliano’s Spring Summer 2012 couture collection, one piece emerged with the all the elements Dior became famous for. Passage #5 was commissioned by The Royal Ontario Museum to be part of the BIG exhibit in the Gallery of Textiles & Costume. The exhibit is comprised of 40 pieces chosen because of their Big historical value, Big news, Big construction, Big name and Big price tags. Passage #5 is all these and more. 8

Not only was the piece purchased by the ROM for $100,000,000, it was also one of Galliano’s last creations before he was arrested for making anti Semitic remarks in 2011. The arrest subsequently lead to Galliano’s termination, which came just weeks after the collections unveiling. Passage #5 would be one of Galliano’s last and most intricate designs. The dress took 500 hours to construct using 166.5 meters of cloth. It has been, beaded, pleated and dyed by top Paris artisans. The dress required an hour of steaming over cardboard forms, followed by a full day of drying in order to create it’s perfectly position pleats and fullness. The 16.5 meters of tulle were painted to exactly match the red petticoat. Every stage from sewing to pleating and beadwork were completed by hand, the way fashion was meant to be! The Big exhibit can be seen at the ROM in Toronto through fall 2013. SPRING 2013

Beauty with benefits NADINE POIRIER, BFA. BEd, MUA

As I write my first article for an amazing magazine, I have to start by asking the question: toner itself. Witch Hazel, although a natural ingredient, it’s also a type of alcohol that can be very dehydrating for the skin. What is true Beauty? This can be a hard question to answer because everyone’s point of view is different. As a makeup artist for 20 years, beauty, to me means inspiration. Women who exude self-confidence, health and happiness are qualities that only true beauty can describe. They are women who have made a difference in their lives and the lives of others. They are loving, caring, loyal and always there for those they love. It is widely believed that most people are obsessed with their outward appearance. We sometimes focus more on what we look like and neglect who we are as people. I believe that Beauty is expressed from the inside out. That’s why I love my job. I love taking the time to get to know people. I am always looking for their inner beauty. I try to capture their kindness and discover their charm. I draw from each one of these qualities and bring them out through the art of makeup. Connecting with people is the best part of my job and I love it. That’s why, makeup should be used as a tool to express your inner qualities, for everyone to appreciate and love. The perfect makeup will boost your self-confidence, and in turn will make you feel great and more beautiful. So where do we start? Healthy glowing skin is the canvas on which your makeup will stay looking amazing forever. Every morning start your day with a detergent free and perfume-free cleansing lotion or cream. You’ll know it’s detergent free if it doesn’t lather when you add water to it. If you see the ingredient Sodium Laureth then put back on the shelf, because that is chemical term for “soap”. After you’ve gone over your face in circular motions a few times, rinse it completely off with lots of warm water and a clean face cloth.

Then apply a thin veil of day moisturizer under your makeup and use a night moisturizer in the evening. Day creams are generally lighter in texture, and feel more comfortable under your makeup application. Night creams are heavier and richer to restore moisture in your skin during your beauty sleep. Avoid ingredients such as Mineral Oil (baby oil) and Petrolatum (Vaseline) in all your skin care and body products, including makeup. These ingredients are derived from crude oil (petroleum) and will prevent your skin from breathing and excreting the toxins from your body. Anti-oxidants, such as Vitamin C, are amazing anti-ageing ingredients. They will significantly decrease the rate at which your skin ages and also provide stimulation for the growth of healthy new skin cells. They also help strengthen collagen production which, in turn, will prevent wrinkles. In my next article I’ll help guide you through choosing the first and most important step to a beautiful makeup application: Foundation. It’s called foundation for really good reasons. Do you have any skin care and makeup questions? Stop by my studio for a Personal Skin Care and Makeup Lesson. Or send me a message at: makeupart@bellaliant.com. Your questions and answers may be posted on our website! www. naturalillusions.ca

Next, refresh your skin with an alcohol-free toner. You’ll know it’s alcohol free by reading the ingredients and by the smell of the 10

Family Affair SARAH SAWLER

12

line

For eighty-eight years, Mills Brothers was all about family. From 1919 until 2007, staff looked on as three generations of Mills and MacLellan children played in the stores, weaving between racks and hiding behind mannequins. Jane MacLellan, daughter of Willett Mills, remembers spending much of her childhood playing in the store while her father and uncle built the business.

SPRING 2013


Later, Jane married Ian MacLellan. He was quickly welcomed into the family business, but he wasn’t given any special treatment. Although his daughter Heather now describes him as “the fearless leader that knew all the numbers”, he started with tasks like sweeping sidewalks and pricing items. At twenty-two, he was given his first managerial responsibility—overseeing the women’s hosiery department. While Ian was working his way up the ladder at Mills, where he would eventually work for forty-seven years, Jane was busy raising their girls, Heather, Janet and Kathryn. When they got older, the girls joined the family business, too. Although Heather began her post-secondary study in criminology and child psychology, she felt the pull of the family business and went to school in Boston to study retail merchandising. “I began working very closely with Dad, learning the basics of the business,” says Heather. “I think I was born to take that opportunity.” When she came home from school in the early eighties, she was given a small office near to Ian’s office. “I was very well watched over,” she laughed. It wasn’t long before Janet and Kathryn followed suit. Janet was eventually responsible for the famous Mills window displays and worked on in-store merchandising, and Kathryn began the phone ordering service that would eventually evolve into current online shopping system. All three sisters spent many years at Mills; Heather was there for twenty-eight years, Janet for twentyfive and Kathryn worked there when she wasn’t figure skating or performing theatre. At that time, all three girls were living in apartments over the store and the family business represented a significant part of their lives. “That’s why it was successful,” says Heather. “Because it was everyone’s life. It was home.” According to Jane, they ran the store with the philosophy that everyone, staff and customers alike, should be treated as they would want to be treated. And although they sold the business in 2007, that philosophy has made its mark on the MacLellans. As the single mother of two children, Heather has incorporated what she’s learned into her parenting. “I teach them the importance of details, manners, respect and working hard. I’m so proud that I was a part of the business,” she says. About a year and a half ago, Kathryn founded Kazan Co-op, combining her acting and directing skills with Janet’s design and productions skills. Janet says the Mills philosophy has permeated her work as a costume designer. “When I’m doing fittings, I treat everyone very respectfully,” she says. “I learned that service aspect from Mills. All customers were treated with respect and kindness.” FA S H I O N • T R E N D • S T Y L E

Island Style SAVANNAH BELSHER-MACLEAN

When you think about PEI, your first thoughts might include red braided hair, horse wagon rides, lobsters, potatoes, and fiddle tunes. And while a thriving fashion scene may not be in your thoughts when pondering all things “Prince Edward Island”…it should be. Panache PEI was founded in 2008 when a group of young artists joined together to help promote what the Island had to offer within the fashion, arts, and culture realms. Starting off as a magazine publication, and quickly growing to an event coordination company and model and talent agency, Panache has seen some amazing talent in just a short amount of time. It’s become clear that the fashion industry is booming in PEI. 20

SPRING 2013


Prime example being Hilary and Louanna Murphy, the sister duo behind Dreamboat Lucy. Upon winning the MercedesBenz Start Up semi finals last spring in Halifax, they took their Island-inspired collection to Toronto Fashion Week in the fall of 2012. From oh-so-dreamy feminine and flowing materials to structured garments in graphic prints, their designs make an easy transition from catwalk to sidewalk.

Savannah Belsher-MacLean is the owner of Panache Models in Charlottown PEI. Line is excited to collaborate with Savannah and her team on issue 2 and beyond. All photos provided by Panache Director Kimberly Rashed – www. kimberlyrashedphoto.com

Another Island native, Heather Lawton, made her debut at New York Fashion Week this past February. Her collections show inspiration from urban gothic with elements of nature, featuring luxurious materials that draw you into her fashion fairy tale. Accessories designers abound in PEI, but each boast their own specialties and unique flair. Overman Jewellery & Art takes the steampunk style to a whole new level. Mixing crystals and semi-precious stones with clock gears and beetle wings, designer Matt Bowness forges whimsical pieces that take you to a dark dreamland. He made an impression on Hollywood last fall at the DPA Emmy Gifting Suite, and is regularly spotted at the massive One Of A Kind Show each year. New to the scene, Laura Morneau of DWN.TWN.FOX, combines vintage, antique and modern elements to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are often described as works of art. When she began receiving accolades for her flower crowns and bib necklaces she made as gifts, she timidly started putting a price tag on her exclusive pieces in local boutiques. The brand has already expanded to offer T-shirts and knitted headbands. Dreamboat Lucy Wave Robe DWN TWN FOX-Barred Necklace and Stranded Pearl Earrings

Shooting fashion on the streets of London and Paris has been a dream of mine since I first got into fashion photography. So when I signed on to a very large two day shoot in the oldest church in London, I knew the opportunity was too good to pass up, and immediately decided to extend the trip, and put out a call to local designers to see who had items that they wanted to have shot overseas.

EUROPE Continued from page 24 I booked Elle Munster as my creative support, and Kassandra Love as my main model talent. Elle is an excellent Halifax based makeup artist who does very good hair, and happens to be a good friend. Based out of Toronto, Kassandra is one of Canada’s leading alternative/fetish models, who is one of the few to also have a strong mainstream fashion look. As a bonus, Elle and Kassandra had worked together in the past, and got along very well - which is important when spending more than three weeks together! I came down with the flu just a couple days before my flight, but shooting at St. Bart’s Church in London helped reinvigorate me, and I was ready to get out on the streets and start shooting! The whole adventure almost derailed before it began when Kassandra came down with tonsillitis just 3 days into the trip. This necessitated booking local models to stand in while Kassandra recovered her strength. One of the best of these was the stunning London based model Ayesha Hussain, who braved a chilly evening to shoot Veronica MacIsaac’s yellow MacLeod Tartan dress in front of iconic red telephone booths. Kassandra recovered quickly, but I wanted to make sure she was okay, so we limited our shooting to indoor work for the first couple of days. This gave us an opportunity to shoot featuring latex garments. Many of those images are being submitted for publication to fetish-industry trade-magazines. Owner/Publisher

With Kassandra recovered, we headed to Paris by rail. While there, we shot in front of Notre Dame, at the Louvre, in the neighbourhood of St. Germaine, at the Père Lachaise cemetery, and at Place du Concorde - where the current issue’s cover was shot. The cover shoot was an interesting adventure. Kassandra did a fantastic job looking comfortable, but in truth, it was -2’C and we had to wait for breaks in the snow showers to shoot. Both Elle and I were bundled up, but Kassandra worked the gorgeous garments from Nicole Dnistrianskyj’s Sasky line so well, that two local women came up independently during the shoot and offered to buy the garment on the spot! After shooting for 23 days, model, creative and photographer returned home to Canada, and the work of finishing the files began. SPRING 2013
