MODEL INS "I CHOSE MY LOOK AS I FELT THAT IT REPRESENTED MY PEOPLE . I LOVE BEING COMFORTABLE AND TRACK SUITS ARE ALWAYS MY GO-TO, AND THE COLOUR ALLOWS ME TO SHOW OFF SOME ASPECTS OF MY PERSONALITY." - KERENE

"BEING SUSTAINABLE IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART OF MY VALUES, AND I LIKE TO REFLECT THAT IN WHAT I WEAR! I STARTED TO MAINLY THRIFT MY WARDROBE THIS YEAR, AFTER LEARNING THAT THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS AT FAULT FOR 10% OF CARBON EMISSIONS, AND IS IN THE SAME SEVERITY AS THE OIL AND COAL INDUSTRY. SO I LIKE TO THRIFT AT PLACES LIKE GOODWILL TO CONSIGNMENTS STORES LIKE THE REAL REAL, BUT MOSTLY BY SUPPORTING SMALL, INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES; LIKE MY SHIRT FROM RAVTHREADS.” -MALIYA


PIRATION "MY LOOK WAS INSPIRED BY TORONTO; THE CITY I GREW UP IN AND LOVE. I USED TO TAKE THE SUBWAY DOWNTOWN AND WALK AROUND AT NIGHT JUST TO CLEAR MY HEAD AND THAT’S THE TYPE OF CASUAL STREETWEAR I’D SEE. FASHIONABLE BUT SIMPLE, COMPLETE WITH THE JEAN JACKET, JUST IN CASE THE UNPREDICTABLE TORONTO WEATHER CATCHES YOU UNAWARE. -KOFI

"I ENJOY EXPERIMENTING WITH DIFFERENT CLOTHING BRANDS AND STYLES TO CREATE UNIQUE LOOKS. I WAS INSPIRED BY COLOUR-COORDINATION AND THE OVERSIZED CLOTHING STYLE OF THE 90S." - MILES

“STYLE IS SOMETHING EACH OF US ALREADY HAS, ALL WE NEED TO DO IS FIND IT,” DIANE VON FURSTENBERG. MY STYLE IS ALWAYS ABOUT COMFORT, COLOURFULNESS, AND DETAILS. I EXPRESS MYSELF BY BEING BRIGHT AND BOLD, EVEN IF IT DOESN’T FIT THE STATUS QUO." - CHARLENE
