Marni needed a dress for this Sunday's 86th Annual Academy Awards! So we went in to the archives and shrunk Bjork's iconic Swan dress for her. It's like, "Honey I shrunk the Swan" but done as a neck piece so that Marni can still sip champagne (just kidding) as we watch the Oscars together this weekend! LOL! It was really easy to make, and seriously all you need is an old bed sheet or scrap of fabric, a Swiffer duster, napkins, two white hair elastics, black permanent marker and some orange cardboard that I cut out of a TNT envelope. We had all of these thing lying around the house. 

How to make it:
So what I did was cut a white piece of fabric from an old bed sheet (folded it) and stuffed it like a sock with napkins. This part is for the face. I than cut some orange cardboard into a cone and taped it as the beak. Do all of your taping in the back so you can't see it. Draw the face with a black permanent marker so that it looks like a swan eye. I then used the two white hair elastics to tie off the fabric around the neck and hold it together.  I taped on a Swiffer Duster to the end of the white fabric and taped the swans beak to the Swiffer Duster to make it connect in a reef like shape. For the last detail, I pleated a white fabric scrap and taped it over the Swiffer where everything connected, so all the tape was hidden. And Voila... Lights, Camera, Action... Miss Marni is ready for the Oscars!

The Look: Ice Scupltures + Street Fair

Fun Fact: Today we walked around Yorkville in Toronto and checked out the street fair that was happening. There were ice sculptures everywhere and really loud reggae music in the background. If you minus-ed out all the snow and the cold, it could almost be summer here! We were celebrating the closing of the Olympics and of course our Gold medals in Hockey! LOL! Which everyone is very excited about. We love Alfeya Afeno's candy like jewelry and can't stop wearing it with everything! When we were in New York for fashion week, I got this Alien crochet charm by Musubi. Hello Earthlings! I'm obsessed :) I keep putting him on all my bags. I just need to name him already. I was thinking Roz (for Roswell)!

MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Collection during New York Fashion Week

 photo 1Q4A1607.jpg photo mm6-newyorkfashionweek-nyfw-beckerman.jpg  photo orange-black-mm6-clothes-fashion-beckermantwins.jpg  photo mm6-nyc-nyfw-beckermansisters-margiela.jpg  photo Margiela-fav-looks.jpg
You never know what to expect from MM6 Maison Martin Margiela. There is always a surprise, an emotion, an element that catches you, that makes you think...that brings Art and Fashion together. The show opened with a big white sheet that went around in circles while the crowd waited eagerly to see what was inside. The big sheet opened up to handsome, Canadian singer Sean Nicholas Savage who started to sing passionately. The singer wore a tux, that was really a one piece, and he sang with so much emotion while on stage that it almost brought tears to our eyes. The models walked down the runway and around him while he sang, "It looks like you, but it's not you." The clothes were so gorgeous and edgy. There was a minimal aesthetic vibe with tops that were made out of bubble wrap, coated denim and paper like materials. We are beyond obsessed with the bubble wrap pieces and fingerless gloves! The colour palette was white, bright metallic orange, coffee, forest green and black. It was an experience that we won't forget and a definite favourite of New York Fashion Week! See below to see the whole live feed and some of our favourite looks!

Chanel Haute Couture Preview during New York Fashion Week!

We were honoured to be invited to see the Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2014 Collection that just arrived to New York from Paris! The bright floor was filled with large wardrobes that hung the Haute Couture Collection. They were soooo beautiful! They sparkled with feathers, handwork beading, embroidery and amazing energy. The Chanel team was so inviting and we had an amazing time chatting about the collection and how they are made. Karl's attention to detail in every garment was incredible to look at and discussing the process of how the tweeds are made and how the dresses are built with corsets in them. The collection had a pastel and silver color palette and a sporty feel to it. There were kneepads, elbow pads and fanny packs that were inspired by the skater girl. Each Chanel outfit is custom made and also comes with gorgeous matching tweed sneakers. We had total goose bumps looking at this collection, the dreamy tweed fabrics, exquisite detail and execution of each garment was a total masterpiece. We felt like we were in a dream. Karl did it again and created a magical and epic collection!
