Welcome to the Outskirts

The big city has always been considered the heart of fashion; Toronto is our nearest mecca, the shrine to style of Southern Ontario...but everywhere in Canada there are little towns and rural centres with quirky fashionistas, stylish little shops, and massively talented designers. I'm going to introduce you to what people are wearing, who you want to meet, and and where you can go to get the best and most beautiful trends and un-trends, without going anywhere near an urban centre. My intention is to focus each week on a small-town or out-of-town designer, artisan, individual or retailer who offers new and brilliant fashion (or tried-and-true style). I'll also spend a lot of time delving into the works of salvage and recycling artisans (I'm one!) and sustainable trade practices.
I hope you enjoy your time on the outskirts! If you know someone or someplace in a rural setting who you think should appear on this page, I'd love to hear from you.
