One of the aspects that I love most about Street Style is that I have the opportunity to meet and feature so many amazing individuals – and it’s even better when friends and past subjects send more incredible people my way, which is how I was introduced to Nicole Wee.

She’s a costuming student at The Fashion Institute and her love of fashion is very apparent – she made me squeal with delight upon seeing her on our photo shoot day, as I’m so in love with the dress that she wore, which she created herself. As if that weren’t enough, she has some wonderful insights and things to share about fashion and her personal take on style, so check out the Q&A below.

Which of Nicole’s style advice resonates with you the most?

Yes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year back again – Poutine Week! Poutine Week in Calgary is as guilt-free as you can get, since every poutine purchased at participating restaurants gives a meal to youth in need through Mealshare. This April 20 – 28, eat freely and Poutine with Purpose!

Peggy Ann Douglas wants to be an actress and see the world beyond the walls of the farm that she lives on with her parents. Since it’s the 1950s, she figures the way to fame and a new life is through beauty pageants. So she is determined to be the next Miss Caledonia. Lunchbox Theatre’s production of Miss Caledonia by Melody Johnson with musical score by Alison Porter, starring Jamie Konchak alongside Fiddler Aleksandra Danicic is a charming little play about a young girl following her dreams.

“Girls don’t play hockey. Who wants to watch a bunch of dolls tossing a puck around?”

This is the kind of mentality the women of the The Rivulettes are up against. It’s the 1930s, and the Rivulettes have just finished up their baseball season. They decide that they want to start a hockey team but there are many obstacles in the way. They have to find a sponsor, a coach, and enough players to field a team. They also have to beat the odds and continue to persevere even when the world says that girls aren’t meant to play hockey.

Alberta Theatre Projects’ world premiere presentation of Glory by Tracey Power in association with Western Canada Theatre is a varied and dynamic look at a team trying to fight for love of the game. Director James MacDonald has guided the story to unfold on stage with grace. It is a empowering story, both fun and refreshing. [click to continue…]

Samantha Fodor is a woman with intention and it’s apparent in her personal style and how she carries herself – which is exactly why she is so deserving of this Street Style Huntress feature. I love all that she has to say about authenticity, style and life, so pay close attention.
