Brianna: A Lady in Kensington

"My style is vintage, feminine and economical.  I learned a lot from my mom.  She's a very classy lady and she knows print, texture and lines.  She taught me a lot about how to mix things well, and especially how to look like a lady."

Jagmeet: A Distinguished Gentleman in the Annex

We shot Jagmeet's street-style just last summer and since then, he was elected MPP for the Bramalea-Gore-Malton district.  Congratulations, Jagmeet!

"I like classic, well tailored -- slim, but not skinny.  In my career, first impressions mean a lot and although we're always told 'never judge a book by its cover', in reality, that unfortunately happens.  Fashion can convey that you're an engaging, professional and fun person who takes their job seriously."

Not only did he catch our attention in his sharp Garrison Bespoke blazer, we couldn't help but admire his handsome Gazelle bike -- a congratulatory gift he bought himself for winning the election.

For more information about Jagmeet, be sure to check out his website here.

Tanya & Enzo: Mother Knows Best

"My mom always says that even if you're going to the grocery store to buy milk, you never know who you're going to bump into.  So when I buy milk, you won't see me wearing jogging pants or running shoes. To me, heels and dresses are more comfortable."

Tanya is the owner of Salvador Darling -- a popular Parkdale bar located at 1237 Queen Street West.
