Outstanding Fashion in the Old Port of Montreal

by Alexandra, Miss Teen Monteregie 2017

On a Saturday evening in summer, fashion abounds in the Old Port of Montreal. It had been a long time since I had gone there. It is a place that represents my childhood , I always went to the science center growing up, fascinated by all the scientific phenomena that I could not explain at the time. It made me really nostalgic, for I had forgotten about it.  So I decided to choose La Place de la Promenade for the article. It’s amazing to think that this place has been around for more than 350 years. This port has played a key role in the economic activity of the metropolis. More than 12.5 million tons of merchandise used to transit through Montreal. In 1963, it was declared as a historic district. Since 2005, the old port has been redesigned to become a touristic attraction. It welcomes six million visitors annually.

Lucky for me, Gloria happened to be one of the visitors it welcomed that day. Her incredible fashion sense made her stand out from the crowd. I’m usually not a fan of pink, but I found that her purse truly brought a unique touch to the outfit. It perfectly complemented her camel shaded Wilfred Boissier shorts made of authentic vegan suede from Aritzia as well as her 100% viscose Italian black Rio top from Brandy Melville. Her accessories were like the cherry on the cake, they added an elegant touch to the ootd. The Aviator sunglasses come from Rayban. They bear their name because they were originally designed for the pilots of the US air force since 1937. They remain trendy despite their age. As for her 100% cotton bandana print scarf it comes from Forever21. To top it all off, her cute fluffy Steve Madden faux fur slippers really put the finishing touch to the outfit.

Gloria’s exquisite sense of style isn’t the only thing that defines her. Born and raised in Canada but originally from El Salvador, she pursued a career as a makeup artist based in Mississauga Ontario. She’s currently an education trainer for new stores in the Greater Toronto Area. I’m glad I had the chance to meet her!


My evening didn’t end there, later that night I met another makeup artist: Clément.  He is a new youtuber who uses his channel to inspire and share his passion: makeup. He discovered his passion by stealing his sister’s makeup and draws his inspiration from several celebrities of the beauty industry such as Jeffree Star, Coco Channel, Katy Perry. He admires these artist because they all value self-confidence and acceptance. I stalked his channel and his style immediately captivated me! He distinguishes himself by his unique colorful style that pops. I suggest you go take a quick look at Clementime his Instagram and Youtube channel! Don’t worry, all the products he uses are cruelty-free, a very important moral for him. On a more serious note, he is currently studying at the Gérald-Godin college in Social Science and he wants to go into the field of politics as a deputy.

Clément’s outfit

My favourite part of the outfit was obviously his makeup. Honestly, it was surprising to see a guy wearing makeup, but I absolutely loved it! I believe in equality and I admire his confidence.  His shark print cotton slim fit shirt from Le Château was matching his black umbrella as well as his Ralph Lauren shoes. All of this, was  completed with a pink cotton pair of shorts from American Eagle. Let’s not forget his cruelty-free backpack from Matt&Nat.

Clement you have really marked me with your beautiful energy, I wish you success!

Female Bowlers’ Fashion in Sudbury Ontario

by Marissa, Miss Teen Greater Sudbury 2017

Fashion is everywhere! It’s something we deal with everyday. It consists of clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup and furniture. Fashion is a means of self-expression that allows people to try on many roles in life. Whether you prefer hip-hop or Chanel-chic, fashion accommodates the chameleon in all of us. It’s a way of celebrating the diversity and variety of the world in which we live. At the same time, fashion shouldn’t be taken too seriously or you lose the fun of it.

Fashion has been present throughout history and the trends change very rapidly and constantly. Fashion trends are influenced by several factors including political, economical, social and technological; the PEST analysis. Fashion forecasters can use this information to help determine growth or decline of a particular trend. The media can play a significant role when it comes to fashion. Editorial critique, guidelines, and commentary can be found on television, in magazines, newspapers, social networks, fashion websites and blogs.

Why does fashion always change?
Fashion changes indicate how a society or a culture can change. Fashion expresses where you belong, your financial status, political orientation, state of mind, identity and of course preferred music style. There are clothes which never go out of fashion, such as jeans, skirts and t-shirts, and wearing these items always radiate self-confidence. World events determine trends. For example the hippy culture was very popular in the 1970s and dominated the world of fashion.

Fashion recycles itself time and time again.

The following pictures were taken at Garson Bowl on Falconbridge road located in Sudbury, Ontario. It shows the different types of outfits these girls wear when they go bowling.

Hannah, age 19, is rocking a very cute but casual outfit. Her shirt was bought at Winners for 18$ and her jeans are from Garage for 40$.  Fashion isn’t always about who spends the most money, as long as you look confident you can rock anything!

Leah, age 17 (left), Mackenzie, age 17 (middle), Matilda, age 17 (right). Leah is wearing a very fun flirty off the shoulder shirt that she purchased at American Eagle for 40$ and denim shorts from Garage for 20$!

Nothing is more beautiful than a confident person with a shining smile ready to take on the world.
