BORN TO DO THIS: Meet Carla Borges, JCI Fashion Grad & Artizia Workforce Planner

Born and raised in Brazil, Carla Dutra Borges moved to Vancouver a year ago to start a new life and career in the fashion industry— a major change from working as an industrial engineer back home. "When I was planning to move to Vancouver to study, I had two options: start a course related to my previous graduation and keep myself in the same field that I already had tons of experience in, or follow my dream to work in the fashion field."

Are These Canadian Fashion Stereotypes True?

Canadians are known for many things: our unfailing politeness, our tendency to say “aboot” rather than “about”, our maple syrup… But if there’s one area where we’re often misrepresented, it’s got to be our fashion. We’ve rounded up six Canadian fashion stereotypes to scrutinize. 1. Plaid is our go-to look Image credit: Garage We’re looking at you, lumberjacks.

Despite a few long decades of evolution this wardrobe necessity has landed on the runway once again looking more modern than ever. Alicia Silverstone rocked it, your mom probably lived in it temporarily, and once again trendsetters are sporting the ridiculously cute fuzzy sweater. Fall fashion tends to be basic and versatile.

Warm Bundle

When the Stella McCartney oversized wool coat sauntered down the runway during her fall/winter ready-to-wear fashion show, I had a “must-have” reaction. The oversized coat looks super chic and is a necessity for any fashionista’s wardrobe. However, as a student, buying a Stella McCartney wool coat is financially unattainable.
