Fashion Magnet provides industry news, events, interviews, product raves (I prefer not to do “reviews”, but only post products or things that I truly love), industry advice from fashion experts, and interesting or fun things that inspire me.
A little about me:
I was born in Glasgow, Scotland and am now based in Toronto. I’ve been working in the fashion industry for over twenty years. I started my career as a model and talent agent in the mid-90’s, representing some now-famous names, including Stephen Amell (CW’s Arrow), Brad Goreski (celebrity stylist, formerly of E! Fashion Police), David Rocco (celebrity chef), Natalie Brown (Ransom, The Strain), and more.
I now own fashion branding and publicity agency Magnet Creative Management and am the co-owner of the exclusive fashion showroom Stylist Box, where we dress celebrities for red carpet events and get designers featured in magazine editorials. I have been seen in front of the camera as the fashion host for TDot TV and I’ve freelanced over the years for various publications, including FLARE.com, The Huffington Post, Global News, Revive Magazine, and more. I’m also currently the Editor-in-Chief of The Pull Magazine.
I am lucky enough to be called upon for various television appearances on a variety of reality shows and news broadcasts, and as an industry expert on CTV’s Your Morning, Slice’s X-Weighted, Party Mamas, MTV Live, CBC News, Global News’ The Morning Show, CTV News, and more.
In 2011, I was nominated as “Communicator of the Year” by the Scottish Fashion Awards, in association with VOGUE.com. (My name was in VOGUE – dream come true!)
I have a major soft spot helping further the careers of young fashion entrepreneurs as a mentor for Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI). I also support UforChange and FreeThem.
