There’s an unexpected theme to this week’s edition of Weekend Musts and that theme is: Real Talk. From designer Matthew Gallagher’s revealing personal share of his experience in the Toronto and Canadian fashion industry to an up-coming talk that’s all about vaginas (that you don’t want to miss), here are this weekend’s musts:
What To Read:
In a recent blog post on his website, Canadian fashion designer Matthew Gallagher got real about the Toronto fashion community and knows what it’s like to feel like you’re at a dead end in your own city. This raw read is not only honest and brave but very inspiring for those who might be going through similar situations. We recognise how incredibly tough it can be for fashion talent to “make it” in Canada, and think it’s about time more people started publicly voicing their frustrations with the support of this country’s fashion industry.

What To Watch:
Simon Porte Jacquemus’ fashion film, La Bomba is seriously the summer escape we need right now with temps in TO dropping like it’s nobody’s business.

Trust us, you’ll be ready to book that last minute winter escape before the end of it!
