Kirstie has been Zang's dear friend for thirteen years and she would be taking to the runway in the grand finale outfit. We prepped for Kirstie's arrival. This meant tidying the showroom. We hid shoeboxes behind the staircase, tossed out trash and moved furniture around. Entertainment...

Tuesday was our last day at the London Fashion Week tents, so certain members of the team pulled out all the stops with their final LFW outfits. Others of us have had enough of the killer heels and the stupid hats, and decided to keep it simple. Click through to see what we all wore on...

We also finalized the seating assignments and blasted them out to the guests via a mobile phone app known as Fashion GPS. My highlight of the day though, was when the model Petra Nemcova came to the House! Working with her was a dream. She truly is a wonderful person, inside and out. She...

My internship with Zang was the portal to the fashion world. I would spend the summer as Zang's assistant, working long but rewarding hours to roll out Zang's thirty-three-piece Spring 2012 Collection that was to be showcased at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in September 2011. Day...

But so far, as we start day five of their tour, we can say, so far so good. Which is not to say that I loved every single outfit (Canada Day costume, anyone?), but I think that they have all been on the up side of successful. Kate wore the ReissNanette dress that she wore in her engagement...

Toronto Fashion Week day four is in the books, and the shows I attended were all unique and perfectly on point for spring. The atmosphere was on overdrive, and the tents were buzzing and the music was blaring. There was a lot of build up and excitement for last night's line-up, as everyone was...

On Day Five in London we hit Liberty, one of the cities premier department stores that has been located in the heart of London since 1875. This store is a must-see situated in a beautiful Tudor building on Regent Street. The blouse is here to stay (at least for another season). Crisp...

Day five, the finale of my Boohoo.com London Fashion week adventures, and for me it's all about Ashish. He's usually saved until the end of the week, not sure why, but like the old adage goes: 'save the best until last'. I just can't get enough of his sequins. How he manages to always work...

Day five and final day of fashion week in London and I brought out the floral. We are technically in the spring summer season for clothing so I wanted to brighten things up a bit. So that's what I did. Floral wide leg trousers, a Gap turtleneck sweater, a python biker jacket and an Anya...

It was a good showing and I was so proud of our team effort! *** My brief summer encounter with this multi-billion dollar fashion industry has truly been insightful. There are marked contrasts within this world. Where there is glitz and glamour, there is also sweat and tears. There are...
