natalie lai | @natalielaii
Natalie is a Toronto based blogger who, since graduating with an English Literature degree, found herself hopping between retail jobs until finally landing an office job. One day, she wants to break into the fashion industry, but for now, she likes to visit unique boutiques and discover cute cafes around Toronto with her point and shoot. She’s your tall, quirky friend who invites you to local zine fairs and loves to either catch up with you over Chatime, or while thrifting together for some vintage levi denim at Black Market!
shanice tadeo | @eversoslow
Shanice is a contributor that strongly believes in sustainable and slow fashion. Being interested in the fashion industry, she learned to sew at the age of 9, and leisurely created her own designs. She soon turned that interest into a passion for change. She started using her sewing skills to transform recycled/pre-loved pieces into something new. Shanice is continuously learning about different organizations’ ecological and social footprint. With the fashion industry being one of the biggest polluters, she wants to show that you can still be fashionable without the expense of the environment and/or societies. Her objectives are to get the readers thinking, spark a conversation, share ideas, but most importantly, learn from and be part of building a community of intelligent, supporting women.
You can find her exploring new places, reading, doing yoga, or working on her next up-cycling project!
