Behind-The-Scenes+ Runway Moments with Perry Ellis at NYFWM


As promised in my previous blog post, I have more content to share from my project with Perry Ellis around their latest runway show! If you guys were following along on social media last week, you know that I was in New York for Men’s Fashion Week and working on a cool behind-the-scenes collaboration with Perry Ellis.

The morning of the show, I spent some time in the Perry Ellis showroom going through their massive (and I mean MASSIVE) archive collections to put together a look for the show. I’m not going to lie, I felt like a kid in a candy store with all of the options that I had to choose from. I ended up narrowing it down to my top three looks and with your guys help via Instagram, I opted for the look below.

The hustle and bustle during a show at New York Fashion Week is like no other! You’ve got a full crew of make up artists, hairstylists, male models, dressers, pr,  photographers, videographers, bloggers etc… it’s nuts! When I arrived, the models were just getting ready to run through their final rehearsal and then  back upstairs for any last minute make up touches and into their first look!

10 minutes before the show began, I made my way downstairs to be seated and catch up with a few of my blogger buddies attending the show.

The show had a very clean and minimal routine for the models, allowing guests to really take in the clothing. I, myself was a huge fan of this presentation, specifically as I felt that it gave a true nod to the heritage of the brand. There was a lot of vintage feels coming down the runway, especially the jackets (which I love) but with a modern twist.

The thing that I liked the most about this collection was that there was something to wear for every occasion in a man’s every day life. It really showed how much thought the creative director Michael Maccari and his team put into it all. .

I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those pieces and see what they come up with next!

Through The Lens Of My iPhone X : New York Fashion Week Men’s


Fresh off my return from Men’s Week in New York, I’ve put together my latest photo diary for you guys! This trip to New York was like no other, filled with magical moments, a constant high and energy rush that words can’t describe. From presentations to runway shows, to meetings at the Empire State building to random nights out, I literally got a taste of everything except time to relax (but who needs that?!) haha!

The week before heading to New York I got my hands on the latest iPhone X and I decided to wait until my trip to truly test it out! I heard great things about the X but I didn’t realize how much of a beast it was, until using it. It took a minute for me to adjust to the new system (taking screenshots is different on the X haha) but after I got the hang of it, I was more than good to go! My favourite thing about the X… the camera (obviously)!

The camera on this phone literally made this work trip so much easier for me. When you’re attending fashion week events, everything happens so quickly and as a blogger you’re trying to see and capture EVERYTHING! Usually, I find myself  switching between 3 devices to capture the best content –  which can be stressful. This time around, I was able to solely use the iPhone X during  shows and presentations.

Instead of telling you guys all about it, I’d rather show you. Every photo in this blog post was both shot and edited using only my iPhone X and the apps I have on it – isn’t that crazy?

If you love blurred backgrounds in your street style photos, you can create that effect easily in portrait mode and can also create that effect with the front camera too (elevate your selfie game)!

These images are highlights from some of my favourite moments during Men’s Week. From hanging out at the LAB SERIES lounge at Men’s Day to getting a tour of the Sean John showroom, to lunch at Freds, to cocktails at the King Cole Bar to working on an exclusive project with Perry Ellis (more on this to come) see it all below!
