Last week was Toronto’s Fashion Week, and I didn’t write about it out of pure bitterness that I was unable to attend and really had no reason to be there whatsoever , BUT this year I have a small connection which I’m excited to share!!
The premise of this site is to talk about all things wine and fashion related. Now there is a walking embodiment of this concept in my dear friend Paul Ste Marie. The man sells wine by day, and models by night (must be nice). Paul started out at Jackson Triggs Estate Winery and is now a sales representative for Vins Philippe Dandurand Inc, one of the biggest importers and distributers of internationally renowned wine brands. This past week in Toronto, Paul walked for HUGO BOSS, Oscar de la Renta and Bustle. The latter being a very hip Canadian sportswear brand designed by Shawn Hewson ( judge on Project Runway Canada) and Ruth Promislow .The label saw an incredible amount of press last week and rightfully so. Below are pics of their 2010 Fall Collection. Congrats Paul! I’ll be waiting for the Dom Perignon ad campaign in the near future.
