    Introducing the exclusive Hana Tajima LifeWear collection, from UNIQLO and UK-born fashion designer Hana Tajima. From casual pieces including long, flowing skirts, tapered ankle-length pants, and blouses to more traditional wear like kebaya and hijab, this collection fuses contemporary design and comfortable fabrics with traditional values.


    About Hana Tajima

    UK-born fashion designer and blogger Hana Tajima is changing the way young women dress all over the world. Inspired by her Japanese roots and English upbringing, her modern, functional designs, which are both culturally sensitive and extremely comfortable, continue garnering international attention and acclaim.


    “We are particularly excited about the update to our AIRism Inner Hijab and High Neck Sleeveless Top that ensures coverage without compromising comfort, especially in warm weather,” Hana said.

    The first UNIQLO x Hana Tajima Collection launched last year in Southeast Asia, and now it has been introduced for the first time in the U.S since last Thursday!

    Henkaa Loving!

    I fell in love with Henkaa convertible dresses during the Wedding Co’s Wedding Show last month… I fell even more when I saw how many different styles you can achieve with just ONE dress, and only $98. The best part? One size fits most! WINNER.

    You can get the Sakura dress in a long or short… but I suggest BOTH.

    Digging the coral peach!


    Definitely one of my favourite colours!

    *sigh* I love the white!

    too damn sexy! The crimson red is definitely a winner.

    I’ve been trying to decide what colour… colours I should get, and so far I love the crimson red, royal blue, coral peach and yes even the white.  What do you guys think? Do you Henkaa? I do!

    Make sure you visit their website for more colours, and online tutorials on how to wear the dresses.

    peace, love and health

    Design LOVE: IDS 2011

    IDS 11 was this past weekend, and I was more than happy to be there to celebrate another year of design goodness! I hadn’t realized that I had taken so many pictures (over 500 to be exact), so it’s going to take some time for me to share all of them with you, as I have no computer 🙁

    Anyway, now for some of what you missed.


    It was so good seeing you again Hawley!


    I want…

    oh the cuteness

    from a trunk to a desk!

    i’ll take them as well…


    so pretty!

    I don’t know how this artist does it! Fantastic!


    yes, yes, YES.

    It was all about the furry lights!

    More fur…

    I want this chair…

    Thank you to Christine from Faulhaber for inviting me!

    peace, love and health


    I’ll post links for where you can find all these designs soon!

    Design LOVE: CUTMR 2011

    I got a sneak peek of CUTMR 2011 when I attended the press preview event at the Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto last Thursday.

    Wish you were here by Denise Ing and Ken Leung

    Never to disappoint, CUTMR featured unique, yet wonderful designs and installations. I also had a lovely time getting to know some of the designers.

    Triptych by Mark McLean

    The exhibition was opened to the public on Friday, and although I wasn’t able to attend on the weekend; I heard lots of people came out and showed the designers some love. Two thumbs up!

    Here are some of my CUTMR 2011 faves!

    I love this! Work by Amanda McCavour

    Part of the Cyborgesses installation by Jen Prather and Steph Mansol

    Chaos Theory by Becky Lane and Chrissy Poitras

    Part of Dennis Lin’s installation. It was beautiful!

    Design by Patrick Svilans- “…express a particular philosophical concept or life guiding principle using a physical form rather than words… order from chaos, and the negotiation of opposing forces in daily life.”

    The groundWORK designers. Can you believe that entire piece is made out of foam?? So nice meeting you guys!

    more of the Cyborgesses installation.

    Ha! Imagine the Queen working at McDonalds! This is part of Pamila Matharu’s work.

    Design by Lubo Brezina and Scott Eunson-This structure was so big I couldn’t take a picture of the whole thing. I think it’s beautiful, and the story behind it is even more beautiful!

    Another favorite of mine was the De-spaced room by Kira Varvanina, unfortunately it was impossible to take a picture of it.

    Congratulations to the CUTMR team and to all the designers on a job well done!

    Thank you for inviting me Jeremy, it was nice to see you again!

    peace, love and health


    I have lots of pics and no computer, but I just wanted to share some of my CUTMR 2011 experience. There also won’t be any video for a while until my computer is fixed… sorry 🙂
