While I was sitting on the couch yesterday stuffing envelopes for my friend’s job (BECAUSE I’M SUCH A GOOD PAL/have absolutely nothing to do all day) I decided to watch Canada’s E! channel.
At home (Chicagoland) I’m what you would refer to as an “E! enthusiast.” I know every show on that channel and have seen every episode of those shows at least 5 times. It gets to the point where I have memorized episodes and mouth what everyone on the show is saying. Its a gift.
Well, Canadian E! is a little different from the E! I know and love. They still play stuff from the regular E! channel, but they have Canadian stuff mixed in too. Most of it is backstage at fashion shows (which is awesome) but they also have a lot of coverage of celebs who are in Canada– basically no one except the Biebs, really.
The other day they had coverage from Toronto Fashion Week. It seemed like an oxymoron to me. I know I have said this before, but I do not find Canada stylish in the least. Only because no one makes an effort. And because everyone’s Canadian. I was kind of surprised that top designers were willing to have their designs on parade in Canada. Who would buy them? Unless they were offering a 2012 spring line of yoga pants, I doubt anyone here would be interested. But I suppose different cities have different styles. Maybe Toronto is super chic and I’m missing out on all the fun over here on the west coast. I doubt it though.
One woman that they interviewed (I didn’t get her name…because I didn’t care) said something along the lines of, “Yeah it’s great here in Toronto. The tents look just like ones in Mexico City Fashion Week–where I just came from.” Ummmm Toronto, you need to step it up a notch if you look the same as Mexico City’s Fash Week. I didn’t even know Mexico City was allowed to have one.
Also, speaking of fashion week–this is very unrelated, but its basically my favorite thing right now.
