History of Canadian Fashion

I was wondering if there is anyone out there, reading this post, who knows something about Canadian Fashion for Women, since 1910. I am doing a school project on the History of Canadian Fashion for Women, and was wondering if anyone would be able to help me. If you think you might have some useful information, don’t hesitate to email me at

Any information would be very welcome!

A Cool Article… read it!

Audrey Hepburn is often voted as one of the most beautiful women of all time.
This is how to emulate her look on a budget.

Dress basic . Audrey helped popularize the little black dress. You can wear one of these to any number of events, or even around the holidays. It will easily go from work to an evening out.

Have a signature . Audrey Hepburn’s signature was definitely her short hair. If you are weary of getting a short pixie cut, make your own signature. This could be something as simple as a right hand ring or a bright pair of shoes.

Wear clothes that fit
. Audrey’s clothes could be very simple, but they always fit impeccably. If you have a hard time achieving this, try a cute lined suit or dress. If all else fails, take it to the tailor.

Choose colors carefully
. Audrey often wore black, or a neutral color like white.

Own at least one fun party dress
. Basics are great but they can seem boring after awhile. Go all out for that once a year event whether it’s Christmas or a wedding.

Keep your makeup simple . Even out your skin tone with a pale foundation & add a dramatic lip color.

Accessorize . This can be something as simple as a pearl necklace or something as extravagant as a tiara or cigar holder.

Be Yourself. Audrey Hepburn didn’t try to be a blonde bombshell. She worked with her own assets & knew who she was. This is why she was such a trail blazer. There had never really been an Audrey before.
