It was the moment that many fashion lovers (who lives in YYC) were waiting for - as just last month - SIMONS - the 177-year-old fashion retailer from Quebec City, opened its first Calgary store.
The downtown location at The Core Shopping Centre marks Simons’ 14th store, the second in Alberta. With a total of 95,000 square feet, the store makes up five floors in the Lancaster Building and portions of the first, second and third floors of TD Square.
I have to say - what an extraordinary addition not only to fashion retailing scene in Calgary - but also - what an amazing concept pairing contemporary style with the heritage of a historic building.
The idea behind bringing SIMONS to YYC - was to create "an exciting shopping experience where customers can explore our branded environments; each with its own space and personality.” - says Peter Simons - CEO of Simons.
If you didn't have a chance to hear about the brand before - Simons houses an extensive and fashion-forward collection of its own exclusive and innovative private label brands for men and women, complemented by a selection of leading labels, exclusive discovery brands from around the world and an edited collection of international designers, making it well known for its exceptional selection of merchandise for everyone. Simons also carries home fashions for the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
What I absolutely about the Calgary store and the concept itself is the idea of bringing so many cultural aspects together - including fashion, art, design and cuisine (YES - Simons Calgary also has cafeteria with some delicious snacks:-)
You can tell that art plays an important role in the design of all Simons stores - and The Core location is no exception. Simons commissioned local Calgary artist Maya Gohill to install a three-storey painted mural which runs along the escalators in the Lancaster Building. Her satirical portraiture combines stylized animals, abstract figures and graphic backgrounds, all using a vibrant colour palette.
Beautiful architecture&design of the store

Polish fashion scene is full of very talented designers. Unfortunately, many times they don't get enough recognition and spotlight...only until certain time...
My personal journey with Vicher Fashion brand started when my friend from Poland sent me message and asked me to check the brand online store. I was intrigued right from the beginning - beautiful designs, interesting shapes, structures and most important - beautiful fabrics.
Those of you, who didn't have a chance to hear about Vicher Fashion - its Polish fashion brand that is created both in Poland and Paris. It's the effect of passion towards art and beauty shared by three sisters - Inez, Kasia and Ania who wanted to create a brand not only to accentuate beauty - but mostly to give every woman who is wearing their designs feeling of comfort and confidence. Inspired by their grandmother and her passion for fashion and style - Vicher Fashion is a mixture of elegance and sporty flare with the Parisian chic full of simplicity and most important - the brand represents designs that are easy to wear - for every occasion.
If you would like to learn more about the brand - make sure to check their online store!!!

Every time I visit my home country - Poland - I know it's going to be busy time:-) But even though - it is always truly wonderful time - not only because I have a chance to spend time with my family back home but also - meet and collaborate with amazing individuals. Well, Paulina Majkowska is definitely one of them.
Before my trip to Poland, I was planning to get my eyebrows tatooed - and although one of my best friend , Maria does them in Calgary - I just didn't have time to do it this time. So after coming home, I did some research about top professionals in the permanent makeup industry here - and "Milion Dolarow" came as one of the first one in my online search. We've connected right away and planned a visit when I could get my eyebrows "refreshed" with permanent makeup by Paulina:-)
Paulina is a graduate of the prestigious schoof of makeup - Biar Beauty Group (London School of Make-up), a student of Agnieszka Brody (Justyna Steczkowska's Makeup Artist) and a graduate of the annual school of makeup by Beata Malachowska - Beauty Art in Gdansk (who was long-time makeup artist for Christian Dior and Chanel). With the ability of analize facial proportions and the techniques of contouring - she knows exactly what to emhpasize and what to hide. Knowledge of colour theory and dolour analysis techniques allow Paulina to choose the right colour for each client.
Paulina is also a student of school of permanent makeup and medical micropigmentation - completing the course of permanent makeup by Long-Time-Liner in Warsaw (License I). The brand carries one of the best machines for permanent makeup in the industry to create perfect makeup - which was also used for my eyebrows - and the effect? You can evaluate yourself:-)

Thank you Paulina for my eyebrows - truly professional work!!!
