the quest… ramping up
It was so nice to hear such a positive response from my first official “journalistic” post for the quest series. It was a great experience and really got me thinking about business, entrepreneurship, writing, fashion in Toronto and networking in a bunch of new ways. Much thanks to my subjects and of course to coutorture for helping me spread the word!
Plus I want to give a giant thank you to everyone else who’s giving me tons of great tips to check out regarding Canadian fashion links and labels. If you’ve got a tip related to Canadian fashion that deserves checking out, do let me know, I love that! I’m interested in even the most peripherally related issues, plus I’m especially into these things:
Extremely talented craftspeople, innovative business ideas, fashion or apparel that represents a Canadian identity. Companies that demonstrate professionalism and humanity. The best workshops. The greatest quality. The best characters. I want to put a face to “Made in Canada”.
I’m also extremely into meeting and interviewing people who have been in the local industry for a very long period of time.
Where will I go next in my quest to define and understand my local industry? It’s coming up… let’s just say it’s something completely different…
I feel like I’m beginning to get some momentum here.
