Trends For Fashion
Anyone who’s anyone has heard of the big names: Coach, Prada, Armani, Marc Jacobs….but I bet you haven’t heard of Soka, Vega Zaishi Wang, Sharon Ehman, Cinzia Araia, Markus Lupfer or Yohji Yamamoto.
It’s high time you did!
Cinzia Araia is a master at making sexy shoes.
Just look at these two !
They are made in Italy, where all the best shoes come from, and are created with genuine leather and suede.

Markus Lupfer is a celeb’s best kept secret.
Everyone from Rhianna to Blake Lively have been seen sporting his trendy approach to fashion and accessories.
From awesome iphone cases, to feminine yet tough-girl clothing, this designer is a man to watch and collect.

Miss Vega Zaishi Wang is a completely brilliant designer that has been creating ready-to-wear collections for five years.
She brings back the allure and grace of feminine beauty, and her clothing works for every type of woman; from the Mysterious Vixen, to the Sweet-as-Sugar Schoolgirl.
Impeccably cut and designed for the lingering eye, this woman is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
Her collections can be seen on her Facebook page, Here
Very little is known about Soka…founded by Stephanus Lukmanto, he currently works with fashion designer Karina Wijaya to create 100% handmade clutch bags and beautiful dresses and jackets inspired by Ikat and Batik methods.They can be found on Facebook Here, and on their website, Here.
If you like a little edge and spook to your clothing, you will never go wrong by choosing Toronto Fashion Designer Sharon Ehman.
She is the sole creator, designer, and model for Toxic Vision clothing.
Not for the feint of heart, each piece is 100% hand made, and her collections are desperately sought-after around the globe.
Her pieces can be very expensive, but trust us….they’re worth it.
Good Luck to anyone who wishes to own a piece of her work…each collection is released via her website only, and once they’re gone, there’s no second chance to acquire.

Trends For Beauty and Cosmetics
But of course, we’re not talking Lancome, M.A.C, or Dior here….and with good reason!
Not only are these giants highly overpriced and underperforming…but there’s also many questions and muddy waters on who exactly still tests on animals.
That’s why it’s better for your wallet, your skin, and your conscience to check out these amazing little-known brands.
The King of Cosmetics and fresh bath and beauty products is without a doubt, Lush.
Not only are their products 100% natural, organic, vegetarian, and packed with amazing flowers, oils and herbs…but they’ve been fighting animal testing for thirty years, and have an Ethical Buying Team to find fair trade and sustainable sources for their ingredients.
That means their Vanilla Absolute from Uganda helps Mubuku farmers get the best prices and profits for their products….Their cocoa beans come from Colombia and supports a group quietly resisting political violence in the region……Their argan oil comes from Morocco, has stimulated the local economy and given local women a sustainable job.
Lush is committed to fresh handmade products, sustainable business practices, low-or-no packaging, and giving back to the communities they work with.
Anyway, back to the products!
There is so much to choose from, you have to see it all yourself…body butters, oil-free hand lotions, aluminum-free deodorants, soaps that smell so tasty that its hard not to eat them….spend a day just browsing and reading all the awesome goodies they have!
They also have a range of products exclusively for men, like the ‘Guv’ner’ deoderant, and the best shaving cream you can buy, ‘Razorantium’
For cosmetics, they have a fairly new line of color for lips, eyes, and skin.
Some of our favorites are the ‘Feeling Younger Skin Tint’, that reflects light and makes you look bright and shiny all day, the FIVE GRAM mascara tube, ‘Eyes Right’ that contains wheatgrass for strengthening and smoothing your lashes, and japan wax, for extremely long day-use and no flakes or crumblies.
This stuff doesn’t go anywhere, and best of all it doesn’t hurt your eyes, like other chemical mascaras.
Visit their website Here, but be prepared to browse for days!
Similar to Lush, but much more simple is Nude Bath Products.
Still a growing local company, owner Karen Murdock offers a fresh, clean product line that includes lip balms, facial masks, scrubs, soaks and soaps. Visit their Facebook page Here, and tell them we sent you!
Well fans, that’s it for today….stay tuned for Part Two, where we’ll cover the hottest places to find unique and daring jewelry and accessories.
