My love for streetwear is no secret. I love athletic textiles, bright colors, and an oversized fit. When I discovered emerging Los Angeles-based designer Daniel Patrick, I knew I wanted to get my hands on some pieces. Worn by celebrities like J. Cole, Big Sean, and Teyana Taylor, Patrick is becoming a streetwear fave for young, urban Hollywood and beyond.

Marrakesh is a beautiful city filled with history and culture. One of the things its most known for are its markets, often referred to as souks.

Summer in Toronto has been a little anti-climactic. An extended spring seems to have never quite given way to summer, even long after the summer solstice has passed. Things haven’t felt as bustling as they have in the past. And me? I’ve been locked away in my own world crafting something special.
Back in May a friend with albinism contacted me to let me know Diandra Forrest (a well known model with albinism) was putting on a charity fundraiser and fashion presentation for the third annual International Albinism Awareness Day. They also let me know she was looking for models with albinism to join her. I was instantly interested. I’ve never been a part of something like this and the idea of making a quick trip to NYC seemed a little crazy. But after exchanging a few emails with Diandra and the producer putting the event together, I booked my ticket and anxiously waited for the day to arrive.
It’s been a while since I wrote about what’s been up with my participation in Nike Toronto’s community-building creative initiative FMFounders.
