Ste-Catherine Street Style in Montreal, Quebec

by Stefanie, Miss Teenage Quebec 2017

Where to start when it comes to Montreal fashion? Montreal is one of the trendiest cities in Canada. It is the Milan of Italy, the London of England and the Paris of France but with a twist; it is where all three meet under one awe-inspiring location: Montreal. Its streets are filled with beautiful and fashionable people. With its European flavor, fashion styles seem to be more trendy and unique.

The people of Montreal go further with their fashion by meshing styles together and creating their own designs. This is why ‘street style’ is very popular in Montreal. Big fashion brands like Aldo, Dynamite, Garage, Le Chateau, Mackage and Rudsak have their headquarters here, and draw inspiration from the culture outside their offices; its from Montreal they’ve all made their mark on Canadian fashion.

Ste-Catherine Street

Ste-Catherine Street is without a doubt one of the liveliest streets in Montreal. It runs 11.5 km long located in the heart of downtown Montreal where you can find a vast array of shops for both brand names and one-of-a kind boutiques. It crosses the central business district from west to east and runs parallel to the largest segments of Montreal’s underground city. It is the longest commercial street in Canada.

This 26 year old model is Christina, my older sister! My sister has truly been a big inspiration to me and is definitely one of my role models. I look up to her everyday, but one thing I really look up to  is her style and fashion. I love my sister’s style; she is currently studying at Concordia University. She lives with her boyfriend and spends lots of time with her family and friends. She is very sociable and is one of the most kindhearted people I know.  Wearing a coral blue dress with a little bow on her top left shoulder, the garment is loose fitting and casual, perfect for a date-night. Since Christina is tanned, the light blue colour matches perfectly with her skin tone making her stand out. She was popping her style while strolling down Ste-Catherine street on a beautiful sunny day.

Yay to another summer dress! My beautiful model Christina is wearing a white dress from forever 21. It is an off the shoulder short dress with lace details on the edges. She was , again, walking along Ste- Catherine street on a warm day.  I love when there is a contrast between the clothing colour and the skin tone; the white colour makes Christina stand out once again.

This is proof that you don’t need to spend a lot of money on a good outfit! She is also wearing my favourite Steve Madden sandals with different coloured straps around the ankle. These shoes are a perfect summer staple and can easily match well with any summer outfit!

My own fashion,

The model in this photo is myself! I am a bubbly and outgoing person who loves to travel and explore different countries and cultures. I am a 17 year old student currently enrolled at Champlain college. I’m the athlete and soccer enthusiast who plays professionally for my province.

Dress: Forever 21
Glasses: Giorgio Armani
Shoes: Adidas NMD

My athleticism usually calls for comfort, hence why my style leans towards comfy casual. I am wearing a pink t-shirt dress from forever 21 and white adidas running shoes. This type of outfit is definitely one of my favourites as it is comfortable and fashionable as well! The dress is $24.90 and the shoes retail at $200.  My sunglasses have a mirror finish and the shape matches well with my rounded face. They complement this look very well as they have a rose gold finish that goes well with the colour of my dress.

What is fashion for me?

Fashion cannot be defined by one sentence because there are so many different kinds of styles out there! I believe that the choice of an individuals clothing is a mean to express themselves. Every persons choice of style, design or trend is a way of introducing who they are, their choice of taste and even what kind of music they like. One’s clothing is like a picture; it’s worth a thousand words. What we wear is how we want to present ourselves. It is a way to find our identity by mixing different styles together to figure out what we like and who we are. It defines us! Fashion is more than just a piece of clothing! My body is a canvas in which I try new things every day to make the perfect match of what I  like to wear. There is no wrong or right fashion style, there is just you.





Outstanding fashion in the old port of Montreal Quebec - Canadian fashion - Clementime on Instagaram

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.

Outfit Price

  • Glasses : $190,00
  • Bandana : $14,90
  • Top : $20,00
  • Purse : ≈ $1000,00
  • Shorts : $75,00$
  • Shoes : $40,00

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!

Toronto Fashion on Cumberland St in Yorkville

Written Alexia Antonio – Miss Teenage Toronto 2017

All photos by Alexia Antonio

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” —Coco Chanel.

Fashion Icon Coco Chanel had a major impact on women’s clothing and in the fashion industry.  The quote expresses staying true to one’s self and style – because every woman is truly one of a kind.

This quote’s meaning embodied us this weekend while in the heart of Toronto fashion hub – Cumberland Street in Yorkville. The street was selected due to its unique style and fashion diversity. Its home to a wide range of styles from everyday streetwear to top designers such as Tania Health and Kate Spade. The mood surrounding the street is created and displayed with bold colors, creativity and unique designs. One particular area of the street showcases and celebrates femininity with the use of pink roses draped over walkways and embroidered on window displays.

The street’s style is also reflected by the clientele and visitors in the area – who are always dressed stylish and on trend. The three muses selected were my inspiration for the selection of the Yorkville area and selected based on their unique style and individuality. I photographed and interviewed the ladies and found a commonality with all three – they all used fashion to express themselves and their individual style. The full interviews are available to watch at:


Cool Girl meets Chic

Emily is 18 years old student attending Western University. She’s going into her second year studying Psychology and American Studies. Emily is a fan of designer Jeremy Scott and his cool and smart style clothing designs. She confidently strolls in Yorkville wearing a velvet tanned button up short skirt, paired with a black short sleeve turtle neck. Her footwear is tanned stiletto tied up boots and carries a black leather purse. She completes the look with her signature “E” Necklace, which she never leaves the house without.

Emily describes her style as “edgy” and loves to mix and match with “nude beige and black colors”. Emily’s outfit is the definition of Cool Girl Chic. I asked Emily, if she could speak to thousands of young Canadian girls about their fashion choices, what would she say to them? Emily without hesitation responded by expressing “Whatever makes you happy, whatever makes you feel comfortable, is the best!”

Elegance Meets the Modern Day Gal

Nihan is 17 years of age just and recently graduated from high school. She dreams of having her own fashion clothing line. Nihan describes her fashion style as “Lazy Chic” as she aims for her outfits to look “Organic” and “Natural” and have an overall effortless look. She accomplishes this look by wearing black Levi jeans, a black bralette with a sheer top overlay.

She adds a jacket over her shoulders and wears a pair of white sunshades. She gravitates to classic black and white colors and sheer materials. “I love things that are sheer!” she expresses. Accessory wise, Nihan always wears her Pandora silver ring as it has sentimental value to her. I asked Nihan, if she had the opportunity to create her own shoe line to empower young women, what message would she write under the shoe to them? Nihan said “I would write I”, “You need to feel like your true self and make sure it’s comfortable!”.

Classic Rock Meets The Future Girl

Arya is 28 years old and is working as a successful Stage Actor while completing her Theatre degree at York University. Arya explained her style fluctuates “It varies day to day depending on how I feel”, “But usually I would say it’s very edgy with a Boho kind a feel to it”. Arya is a fan of designer Alexander McQueen and carries an open-minded attitude towards fashion and embracing various styles much like the late designer.

She’s wearing a white star top, black jeans, black boots and completes her look with the classic black leather jacket. She’s finished her look off with multiple accessories. Her signature style is her bold hair color and seeks only perfection when it comes to her styling. When asked what type of accessory she would design to promote the empowerment of women, she replied “It would be a black leather cuff, in the front of it would be two silver sterling hands holding each other”. This accessory is a reflection of Arya and represents the strength of women.

Your classic Modern Girl (Me!)

I’m 19 years old and going into second year at York University in the AMPD (Arts, Media, Production & Design) program.  My passions are with photography and writing. Some of my recent awards include Outstanding Achievement for Film & Editing and my recent accomplishments include writing a children’s book which reflects my platform and girl empowerment. I describe my fashion style as modern with a mix of 50’s chic. I enjoy wearing bright colors and pieces that convey confidence.

Get The Look
Hot pink jumpsuit – Zara – $150.00
Steve Madden  shoes – $100.00

With all my wardrobe selections I aim to project a confident style while staying true to my individual style. If I were to have my own shoe line, the message conveyed would be about the empowerment of girls.  Under the shoe, the message would state my platform’s campaign “Find Your Beauty Inside”.

The purpose is to inspire all girls to positive; to be confident; believe in themselves; to be FEARLESS; and they will accomplish everything they set their minds to and accomplish their dreams.

Summer Fashion in Biggar Saskatchewan

By Shiela Antoniette Montes, Miss Teenage Saskatchewan 2017

“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak” –Rachel Zoe

Fashion is everywhere and the joy of dressing is an art. Fashion doesn’t only matters on the price but its quality; not specifically defined by its style but most especially the confidence in bringing up the style.


Busy life and hectic schedules are part of the fashion industry, but even at work, you have lots of choices to look and feel good. Two girls in town whom I consider to be top fashion leaders in this field, Kathleen and Carla make it look easy to achieve a professional look that would always fit everywhere.Kathleen and Cloe in Biggar Saskatchewan

Kathleen believes that fashion depends on how you can make it on your own and carry yourself with confidence. She grew up admiring her mom’s professional look. “I wanted to be like her someday who always look professional with a youthful glow”. In her picture, she’s giving the life of a “VIP” professional look. To achieve this, it’s important make sure that the outfit highlights the professionalism of a person. For the “VIP Professional look” she is wearing a white lacy fit top from Le Château, costs $48.00; matched with a pinstriped navy skirt from Cleo that costs $65.00.

Tip 1: Accessories rely on what kind of event you’re up to and sometimes depend on the weather.
For Kathleen’s accessories, she picked a white earring from winners, costs $17.00 and gold bracelet that costs $25.00 from Garage. For necklace, she had a gold one with amethyst and diamond that costs $300.00 from Ben Moss (you can also get it from Peoples). Tip 2: For footwear, always remember that footwear should match its color from your outfit. For her style, she wore a black strappy heel from Guess that costs $168.98. Tip 3: Bags are the essential of your confidence and feeling for the day. When I asked her about what she feels for that day, she told me she feels girly and kinda sassy. For her outfit, a pink neon bag (or any light colors) from Sears that costs $48.00. The bag made her achieve the youthful glow she ever wanted.

On the other hand, Carla, a girl who believes that fashion can also be simple yet sophisticated. The jumpsuit is a perfect outfit for her. She purchased the black jumpsuit from Gap for $130.00, the white bag from Guess that costs $56.00, and for the footwear, she had a brownish-black wedge sandal from Ackermans for $40.00.


I love Denim. Denim is my favorite outfit for it is versatile and always trendy. There are lots of styles you can make in denim. All you have to do is to portray it very well and wear it comfortably. In this section, my team and I present the 3 kinds of denim look: the outgoing, the adventurer, and the sweet-sassy look.

Denim on the street in Saskatchewan

“Denim represents my personality, a girl who has decency and at the same time sexiness” a line from Trixie, who expresses denim in an outgoing style. She wore a denim hipster pants from American Eagle that costs $33.00, matched with a black sleeveless fitted top from Ardene that costs $12.00 and a denim jacket from winners, costs $10.00. Tip 4: Denims fit to any footwear. Trixie uses a beige sandal from Call it Spring that costs $54.00. She matches her outfit to a ship-like earring from Ardene that costs $5.00 and a white pearl necklace from Guess that costs $32.00.

For an adventurer look, it should be a simple and comfortable. According to Sam, “Denim is a good outfit for any adventures, you can move easily and adequately”.  Sam wore a denim pants from Winners Confederation Mall costs $50.00 matched with a blue polyester polo from R & W Co for $68.00 and a black Adidas rubber shoes from Sports Check that costs $90.00. Tip 5: For a total package adventurer look, match everything with sunglasses to look classier.

For a sweet-sassy look, I believe that skate skirt is the answer for that. Guess denim polo costs $54.00, skate skirt from Amazon that costs $24.00 with shipping and to match up the sweet and sassy look, I chose to pair everything with a black chained high-heeled boots from Avon that costs $44.00. For my accessories, I wore a gold with black pearls bracelet that costs $25.00, black pearl necklace that costs $30.00 and an earrings, costs $24.00, all from Le Château.


Summer is the most awaited season of the year. Summer brings the easiest fashions of all. According to Jobelle, “summer look is the most expressive and provides opportunity to show one’s self through their skin”.

Jobell and Summer in Saskatchewan

Jobelle is wearing summer clothes that emphasizes her fresh look. She achieved summer look with a dark green off shoulders from Ardene that costs $15.00 and shorts that costs $25.00. She matched it with white flats from Joe Fresh that costs $20.00 and a sunglass from Coach that costs $80.00.


In Canada, summer is a perfect season for sweating and maintaining a good fit. Even in the field of sports, fashion is still appealing. Kathleen and I are portraying a look on how to achieve a good fashion in sports.

Tip 6: Sports’ clothes must be simple but not too naïve. The most important is that you wear clothes where u can move freely.

Sport fashion in Biggar Saskatchewan

Kathleen wore a Nike dry fit short from Sports Check. It costs $32 and the Nike Sports Bra is $48.00. She matched it with a Nike Runners from Sports Check that costs $162 and the Pink Neon Workout Vest from Winner for $28.00.

Street Chic in Chapleau Ontario

By Emma, Miss Teen North Ontario 2017

I had the absolute privilege to be able to capture my childhood friends beauty within a few photos. It was so easy to take these pictures of these beauties, their pictures really impressed me due to the fact that they did an amazing job modeling their clothes. My first model “O,” (the first two pictures seen below) has been my friend for 13 years. She is a beautiful young lady that has grown up surround by wilderness her entire life due to the fact that she has grown up in our small town of Chapleau. O loves to keep active, she believes it is important to have a healthy lifestyle, that is why she does physical activity everyday and is running a half marathon this August.

O has a natural glow all due to the fact that she feels good on the inside which obviously makes her look great on the outside. She is a very kind and approachable young lady, this is why I am proud to call her my best friend.  She modeled a stunning sun dress purchased from the store Orsay from our trip to Europe this March. This outfit would be perfect to wear to a dinner date. It is very comfortable while looking chic and classy all at the same time. The sun dress also had a settle touch that consisted of a slit rip on the middle of the dress. O presented the camera a cotton knee length dress that was a dark shade of charcoal with strips of light grays falling along the side. She also decided to wear a gentle black shoe that she got from Call it Spring, the shoe complemented the dress ever so nicely due to the fact that it did not take away from her beautiful sun dress.

We took these photos on Birth Street in Chapleau Ontario, and never would have thought that a grungy corridor would be the perfect spot to capture such beautiful images.

My second model is “M,” she has also been my friend for 13 years. M is a very stunning young lady that has also grown up in our forest surrounded town her and lived right beside the beautiful Chapleau river her whole life. M is a 5’8 beauty that spends her summer days outside with friends exploring new adventures. She loves spending her free time outside enjoying our nature filled town.

M loves seeing new things and jumping on new opportunities, this is why she has been to Florida, South Carolina twice, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. I took M’s pictures on Parliament Boulevard, Chapleau Ontario. 

M is wearing a casual attire that you would catch her wearing to school or walking around the streets of Chapleau with her friends. This outfit is the perfect look for a teenage girl to wear on a nice spring day. It is comfy yet very cute, I am sure every girl loves being comfortable while looking stylish at the same time! Especially if you are a busy girl like M, you have to make sure you can go the entire day without feeling uncomfortable.

If you are looking to recreate this perfect spring look, her casual blue cotton skinny jeans was purchased from American Eagle, her lacey top is from the stylish shop Garage and she paired this lovely outfit with army green shoes from Le Chateau. Working with these two models was a blast! They both presented me two very different looks, however the looks that they chose was a complete replica of their personality. Both looks can be worn where ever and when ever, they are both comfy and stylish which is a huge plus for any teenage girl.
