Canada Day may have been Friday, but that doesn't mean odes to our nation ought to be confined to that single day! Indeed, having the good fortune of being a Canadian fashion label designed, managed, and produced in Toronto, Canada, we at Greta Constantine thought it would be a perfect time to highlight some of our most favourite things about residing in this beautiful land.
Some backstage access - at the Greta Constantine Fall/Winter 2011/2012 show at the Audi dealership in downtown Toronto's East end. Seen is (FORD) supermodel in the making Madison in one of our cozy-chic Fall looks. Look familiar? She starred in our SKIN campaign from just a few weeks ago.
THE COVETEUR. Co-founders Erin Kleinberg and Stephanie Mark are Canadian, and super-talented photographer for the site Jake Rosenberg hails from Toronto, as well. We all know and love the fanciful-fashion-filled web wonder that captures the professionally curated wardrobe and home findings of some seriously stylish folk. Pictured: a Greta Constantine feathered frock aptly named the 'Liz' in the home of FLARE Fashion Director and demi-god, Liz Cabral.
We certainly cannot forget this fabulous natural sweetener. Melt-in-your-mouth flapjacks wouldn't be complete without it: maple syrup! Born and raised in O, Canada.
Happy Canada Day peeps. Be sure to enjoy all that our prime real estate has to offer, and get your fashion on, Canadiana style (which is so much more than flannel and denim-on-denim).
P.S. Want to know how Kirk and Stephen find inspiration for their designs? The celebrity they'd most want to dress? Or who they'd never? Tweet @gretconstantine with your question and #gctellall in prep for this week's webisode!
