U.K. Designer Hana Tajima Talks Fashion, Inspiration And Self-Expression

For British-Japanese designer Hana Tajima, making clothes has always been more than just fashion to her.

As a Muslim woman, Tajima started designing after seeing a gap in the market for fashionable and modest clothes that fit her own personal style. Since then, she’s designed three collections for Uniqlo that have met success in Southeast Asia and the U.S. Now, she’s ready to launch her brand new Spring/Summer 2017 collection in Canada.

To celebrate the release of her latest collaboration with Uniqlo, which launches in store today, we caught up with her to learn more about making the collection, her favourite pieces and her identity both as a woman and a designer.

Channelling Your Inner Spirit Animal: The Giraffe

Do you still wear your pleated maxi skirts as midi skirts after your weird growth spurt? When shopping, do you avoid the new items displayed within arm’s reach and go for for the top shelf deals instead? Do you prefer to stand and watch from afar (possibly down your nose) as other people try out the newest loud trends? Do your friends describe your style as shy-girl-chic, a bit geeky, and a tad offbeat? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then read on to channel your inner spirit animal this fall: the giraffe! read more…

Street Style Lookbook: BFF Edition!

Someone, somewhere once said that two is better than one – so in light of ~appreciating BFFs~, this week’s edition of street style snaps had us chasing stylish duos – asking them (politely) if we could join them in their fashion-y #biffle activities. Joking. Partially.

Whether they unknowingly coordinated their outfits or knowingly coordinated their musical choices, these pairs make us want to grab our own BFFs and tell them that we love them…in all their BFF-worthy glory ^_^. read more…

Street Style Lookbook: Micro

Though the weather is still fluctuating between sunny summer and rainy spring, we’ve been taking the opportunity to sport bare legs and sandals all week. Admittedly, there have been days when the temperatures are deceiving /not-warm/ and we are forced to revisit the spring jackets and long-sleeved jersey basics that are often overlooked year after year, but regardless of this awkward transitory weather, bare legs will 4ever remain – that is, unless it starts snowing again… #foreverbeatingthesystem read more…

A Tale of Designer Switcheroos

Time travels in the fashion world a lot faster than it does in the real world. The new Wang booties you bought last week will be outdated by the time the snow clears. Taking this time warp into consideration, I’ll start my story off with “A long time ago, in a far away land…” (Because one year in fashion speak, is in fact,  ‘long time ago’). read more…

HEADLINES: Kate in Gold Gets SOLD, Beyonce Rocks Many A Tux, and Crosdressers Attack!

It was a busy weekend to say the least. So what stories are buzzing today? 1. George promotes Stacey Kiebler. As you well know when it comes to women, George runs the show; he always runs the show! And he has decided that Stacey will be extended red carpet privileges as the two hit the red carpet together at the New York Film Festival this weekend. So how long will it last? We’re accepting bets starting immediately! (Lainey Gossip)

Flynn Bloom is officially my new favourite lil nugget. He definitely just robbed top billing from Mason Dash Disick. It’s not Mason’s fault; it’s his family and their over-saturation. Like, seriously I don’t need to see you getting laser hair removal pre-wedding, I just don’t! Anyways let’s hope to see more of Flynn really, really soon. (Popsugar)

So Beyonce took a year off from work before she planned to have a baby; in order to prepare herself. Now that she’s preggers? She’s working harder than ever – something doesn’t compute. Anyhow Queen B dropped her second video in two weeks, Love on Top, and this time it’s all about the luxe tux! (Fashionista)

The newest gang to hit the streets of New York? Cross-dressing men seeking Chanel bags! Apparently two cross-dressed men managed to steal two customized Chanel handbags from Lower East Side boutique; A. Turen. Such a better look than the usual pantyhose face. (Huffpost Style)

It is interviews like this that remind you Tavi is really just an eccentric child. Tavi spoke with Elle Fanning about, like, school uniforms and how short to, like, wear your kilt, like. Elle’s a good girl; SHOCKER. Me? There were times I rolled my kilt three times! Yeah it was more belt than skirt. (The Cut)

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of a million hipsters freaking out! Because Uniqlo has opened its biggest store ever in NYC. (Lucky)

Marc Quinn’s famous statue of Kate Moss (the gold version) has sold at auction for over $800,000. I wonder how she feels about her gymnastics pose being on display in bidder’s houses. Creepy! (Vogue UK)
