One of the major highlights this year for me was definitely appearing on liveTV for the very first time! It was on The Shopping Channel and it was part of the Style Matters with Jeanne Beker fashion series on October 11th. It was a full on 30 minute fashion talk Q & A while going over looks that models were wearing styled with LAMARQUE. It was such an incredible experience being on the show and I seriously had so much fun doing it. After it was over, I felt this unbelievable high that left me feeling like I couldn’t wait to go back on air and do it all over again! It was such a success for the brand and for me personally since truly, I am in introvert at heart so these kinds of things generally freak me out tbh!
I have to say though, practice really does make perfect. Prior to the show, I had practiced and trained with the amazing team over at TSC which were such great talents seriously! I practiced in front of friends and family and even reading over my notes right up until I had to go get mic’ed. Even though I know my product better than anyone else, I was afraid of blanking out. Walking off the set, I really felt happy with the overall result of my first time on air and it was a major accomplishment for me personally. No doubt there were times during the show that I felt like I didn’t say the right thing or I could’ve worded something better but nothing is perfect in life and we can’t dwell on our shortcomings – we need to move on to the next!
It was so much fun shooting the LAMARQUE FW18 Campaign in Toronto this season especially because I’ve never done a night shoot before and I had wanted to do one for some time now. The idea of it was so intriguing and perfect for the narrative. It was dark, cold and wet – only amplifying the drama.
The star of our shoot, Dauphine from Elmer, was the ultimate gorgeous secret agent – perfectly transitioning between 2 aliases in a gritty setting during the night.
This passed Thursday, we held the launch of the KGMTL X LAMARQUE Capsule Collection at our downtown Montreal store. It was such a wonderful evening filled with shopping and noshing! The energy throughout the event was amazing and the reaction to the collection was such a success!
The collection was made for real women with real bodies – covering our imperfections while highlighting our best features! KGMTL has been such an inspiration for so many girls – she’s been so many different sizes and knows a thing or two about feeling and looking her best. I started following her earlier on when she was starting out and I loved her confidence and everything she was about so I instantly knew I needed to do a collab with her!
The capsule consists of 6 essential items to make your feel and look your best. The KG High Waist leggings which are soo amazing on since we incorporated a Spanx like construction in the waistband – they literally feel like you put on your favourite workout leggings and have been instantly photoshopped! The KG Mini Skirt with expertly cut panelling to avoid that dreaded tummy pooch. The KG Biker Jacket that is cut at the right length to accentuate your waist and it also has this light quilted lining that I love so much! The KG Henley Bodysuit that is body hugging and soo soft you’ll never want to take it off! The KG Henley Top made out of a soft ribbed cotton and curved hem that covers the bum. The KG Leather Bodysuit that is such a timeless and sexy piece – you can also pair this piece with the skirt to have a leather dress look!
