1) We put Toronto hairstylist JANET JACKSON to work on the set of our cover shoot (“First Place” page 94) in Little Jamaica, on Eglinton Avenue West, not far from where she grew up. “Ironically, I first knew I wanted to be a hairstylist while working on Eglinton Avenue,” she says. “It was at Amorphous Hair Salon that I developed a love and passion for the trade and became obsessed with the artistry.” 2) Consider this our formal apology to new creative director extraordinaire ANNIE HORTH if we distracted her on-set. Crowned stylist of the year at the 2016 Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards, Horth has worked with celebs like superstar Céline Dion, so we had questions, naturally. What is the Montrealer’s wardrobe staple? “Blazers are a year-round favourite piece of…

editor’s note

I WAS A LITTLE ON EDGE the day of our September cover shoot. Clouds of fragrant smoke were billowing off the barbecue that sat on the sidewalk just outside the front door of Raps, a Jamaican restaurant on Eglinton West in Toronto. Standing next to this smouldering metal grill? Our cover stars, model Winnie Harlow and actor Stephan James, wearing head-to-toe ripped-from-the-runway Valentino. Getting the shot had become an exercise in patience. A crowd had gathered, alternately walking through the frame and chatting on their phones in the background of the set, waving to Winnie and taking pictures that were likely to be leaked on the internet. Outwardly, I was smiling; inwardly, I was calculating the dry-cleaning costs that would be necessary to get the aroma of spicy jerk chicken…

POWER IN NUMBERS Over 4,000 ceramic beads make up New Mexico-based artist Cannupa Hanska Luger’s Every One sculpture—one for every missing and murdered Indigenous woman, girl, queer and trans person in Canada and the United States. Each bead was handmade by people affected by the crisis across North America. Together, the beads form an image of a woman—a reminder that behind each number is a life. The piece will be on display at Toronto’s Gardiner Museum starting August 30. SWEET DREAMS Dior Skincare’s top-selling product is getting an upgrade. The third generation of Dreamskin Care & Perfect ($185, dior.com) is the result of 800 different formulations, tested on some 100 women, with all skin tones represented. Think of it as a souped-up primer: It colour-corrects and blurs pores instantly while its niacinamide, shea…

IMAGINE BEING A fashion editor with nothing to wear. That’s how New York-based model (and Brantford, Ont., native) Lauren Chan felt when she started her career in publishing seven years ago. “I was writing all this great stuff about plus-size fashion and really pushing for diversity, but I was having a hard time getting dressed for work [because of the lack of inclusive sizing],” says Chan, who was, at the time, an editor at Glamour. Never one to sit back and wait for change (“It’s very important to me that my work does some kind of social good”), Chan took matters into her own hands: This fall, she’s launching Henning, a chic workwear brand for sizes 12 and up. TIME FOR A CHANGE “When I started working in fashion, size inclusion…

IT’S SAFE TO SAY that we are primed to expect a familiar autumnal palette: earthy oranges and deep forest greens the colour of piled gourds feel natural; Bordeaux-like burgundies call to mind simmering pots of mulled wine; and caramel browns remind us of turning leaves—or of the spice blend atop a much-contested seasonal latte. That’s why, when designers sent splashes of vibrant hues down their fall catwalks, our senses were totally upended. A sublime magenta collided with tangerine lace on a slinky slip at Sies Marjan, while a wool cape at Valentino gleamed in dandelion yellow. At Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh, a not-quiteneon leather trench (paired with some tie-dye ankle boots for good measure) looked utterly hypnotic under the stage lights. “The fall runways were alive with what we’re calling ‘joy…
