Maanii: Vintage Cool

"I'm really inspired by Poli Styrene -- lead singer of the 70's punk band X-Ray Spex. She wore whatever she wanted in a time when women were told what to wear to fit a certain definition."

Pam Chorley: "More Is Never Enough"

Pam Chorley is the owner of Fashion Crimes -- a trendy boutique on Queen Street West.  After 28 successful years of designing, Pam shows no signs of slowing down.

"I've only ever designed anything that I want to wear. It has to be feminine and flattering. There must be some kind of glam and vintage feeling -- whether it's the detail, workmanship or embellishment.  It's not plain, less or minimal. More is never enough."

Pam previously appeared on TorontoVerve with her daughter Jasmine.

Jonas first made a colourful splash on TorontoVerve two years ago and it's obvious that his cool sense of style hasn't changed.

"My bow tie was designed by my wife and soon will be available on her website, Afrodelik, an afro-centric art clothing line, specializing in t-shirts. I talked her into doing menswear - so also expect cardigans and perhaps blazers on the site in the future."
