For the second time now, I have had the honor and the privilege to shoot with the amazing Stephan Loban! So with my new collection completed and shown several times, I was ready to have it photographed. I asked my friend Danielle Krunk to model for me and even though it had been awhile since she had modeled, its as if a day did not even go by. She quickly picked up where she left off and delivered a stellar performance. The MUA was none other than my amazingly talented sister Ashley Nevin and hair was done by my very own hair stylist, the magical Kitty Amy! So here are the photos, enjoy <3
This was the poster for my first, very own fashion show in Toronto, ON. The image was taken by the fabulous Lysnie Roberts, who is doing SO well for herself! It was an awesome show and I could not have been more happy with how it went! It felt good to see my name on a poster! Hopefully, one of many times I will feel that feeling. Makes you feel like your on the right track in life!

After months of not posting ANYTHING, I'm back and I have a bunch to talk about! There really isn't any reason as to why I stopped posting, basically the same reason I stopped writing in my journal. I'm just a lazy S.O.B. However, for those of you who would like to see what I HAVE been up to and I AM up to, you can now follow me on Twitter!

Well the show for Rock The Runway was GREAT, all except for one person who did not like my collection and reviewed it as "dowdy, prairie hookers". I thought it was funny. That was the only bad review I've gotten so far...knock on wood! There are a BUTT LOAD of pictures and videos to post so I will be doing that in the next little while, the reason I have not posted anything in quuuuite sometime is because of my prepping to get ready for RTR and now that its over, I've been taking this time to RELAX!!! But now that I have caught up with the sleep I have missed and the eating I had little of, I'm ready to keep rolling and start planning my NEW COLLECTION! I HAVE already started planning my new collection and cannot wait to get started! Keep reading, alot is in store!

Alex Evans is an AMAZING photographer and someone who I am so honored to call one of my close friends. His work is nothing short of breath-taking! Sunday night he had to take some pictures for a University project of his, so we took some pictures. I don't think that either of us had expected for the pictures to be this amazing. Don't get me wrong, whatever we would have done, the pictures would still kick some serious ass, but THESE pictures...COME ON! They are stunning, as am I if I do say so myself, hahaha! The paint on my face was SO tight, cause every time I would put a new layer of paint on, Alex would make me laugh and I'd have to put more on. It got so tight, that at one point, it actually held my skin in place and it felt like I wasn't smiling. Alex was saying to me, "Chris! STOP SMILING!" hahaha, I was like, "IM NOT". Alex has also shot one of dresses before, a few months ago. It was modeled by Jami Lynne Harper and was part of my last collection. I'll post all pictures mentioned in this blurp. Anyways, it was a fun night and I look forward to shooting with Alex again! Enjoy the photos!
BAH! Time is ticking and I am getting so FUCKING excited! So, first of all the Logo for The Rock The Runway event is actually this one, right above ^ ALSO I totally didn't even realize I did this, but I got the date wrong its MARCH 5TH!!! COME COME COME! This collection is going to be my BEST!

So, I realized that I have a very hard time keeping up with posts! It's horrible, so I figured I would post more, if I had more to post about other than just myself and my designs, haha. I'm going to start posting my own fashion tips, my "Fashion Philosophies" if you will :) Some tips on style, as well as other things such as shoes, accessories, dresses and other designers that I love! I'm also currently working on a BRAND NEW collection which I will be showing at this years ROCK THE RUNWAY which be held at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) on March 1st 2011! I'm so excited for the show, which will have Brian Bailey, from Project Runway Canada, as this years Special Ambassador. It's going to be a HUGE show, you should all come and buy a ticket, all proceeds will be donated to WAR CHILD! Big things are in store for me for 2011, so keep following me and reading my blog, there is MUCH, much, much more to come from me :)
A few weeks ago, one of my great friends and all around babe, Caitlin Alexander had said that she wanted to shoot with me! I said yes, cause I'm not a fucking retard! She found a photographer and I found a MUA and magic was made! It had been awhile since I had shot with a photographer that I had not of worked with ever before, so I was nervous and yet so fucking incredibly excited! I also had not ever have worked with Caitlin either. The MUA was none other than close friend and often the very best partner in crime drinkin buddy and sesh partner (drum roll plreas)....Kate Mackinnon! I had brought with me 3 nw dresses from my Spring/ Summer 2011 Womens Wear collection. The pictures taken this day were nothing short of breathtaking for me, while I sat in a chair and watched the computer screen as each picture taken would instantly pop up. It was the first shoot I had ever done where I could really just sit back and relax and enjoy the beauty being made as the shoot proceeded. Caitlin needed no direction at all with any of the modeling, she was fantastic. Kate did a MAGNIFICENT job with the make-up, it looked so "french-galliano" but tamed, haha. If that even makes any sense, but thats how it looked for me :) And Stephen M Loban, well needless to say I was 100% satisfied with his work! Such an amazingly talented man! Thank you Stephen. Enjoy the photos, there are quite a few :)
