This past weekend, we set up shop at Toronto's Exhibition Place for The Toronto Clothing Show, where we got to hang out with old friends like Steph and Rose of Crywolf here. Crywolf is awesome for a number of reasons, but one of the reasons we get along so well with their brand is because of their attitude towards independent artists and streetwear culture. Unfortunately, a lot of brands out there are very secretive about the way they do business and have products manufactured. But with Crywolf, they're more than happy to help out with anything. It feels like we're on the same team, rather than in competition with each other.
Another reason we like them is because they take us out for sushi and buy us saké.
Dawn owns and operates Love Poetry all on her own. We like her and her friends because they keep us full of delicious homemade cookies, and keep our chubby bodies looking slim with quality made corsets.
These are our newest pals Becky and Hutton. Though I've only known them a couple days, I'll be asking them to be the God parents of my future children. They operate the greatest denim company in the world (No foolin'.) called Peter Says Denim. They make the highest quality jeans you can possibly buy, but for a fraction of the cost of other high end denim brands. (Think Nudie or Cheap Monday.) I haven't changed the pair I bought since I got it, and can't see it happening anytime soon. Bury me in them. (Not now, you turkey. When I'm dead.)
If you ever run into Hutton in real life, be sure to ask him about stabbing kids, lemonade gang sings, and the sketchiest bathroom in Ontario.
We also want to thank Chomps and Katrina for helping us out all weekend. As well as Si, Jamie, Ms. Mazzota, Regina, Serena, and Kristina for stopping by and hanging out with us.
As for the four new designs we debuted (and nearly sold out of) at The Clothing Show. Sit tight! We'll have them online next week for all of you that couldn't make it to the show.
See you all next time!
