Ottawa, where are you?

What is disappointing when  peruse Canadian fashion magazines and their websites is the fact that all the links and articles under “shop” are reserved for stores in Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary and Edmonton. There are several locally owned stores carrying great fashion finds, yet no one bothers writing anything about them. When Edmonton (known for its enourmous mall) gets shopping cred, there is a serious issue. I give props to FLARE for coming out to fashion week in Ottawa and giving our city a chance. So my message to local boutique owners: write an open letter to Canadian fashion magazines and let them know their favouritisms needs to stop. Invite them to visit Ottawa and to your stores, we are nonetheless Canada’s capital! Ya heard?

Rideau Centre expansion

The Rideau Centre, located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, has been undergoing some serious renovations. New stores appear monthly and more well-known designers and chains are set to call the concrete block home, such as:

  • Lacoste – October 2008
  • Sephora – May 30, 2008
  • Nike – July 2008
  • Starbucks – July 2008 (um isn’t there one across the street?)
  • Coach – August 2008
  • Marciano – December 2008
  • Lucky Brand – September 2008

I’m not too too excited about a majority of these but I also did hear that Swedish chain H&M will be opening its doors there in August 2008. Finally (sigh of relief)! I do wish more locally owned stores do start opening up downtown or in the Glebe and Westboro areas since there is a lack o cool brands to be found in the city!

This is sick….

So I opened my email this morning and found this:

a) I am not a fashion victim at heart

b) I had to check it what it was about

c) Great concept…but as usual, NO OTTAWA. This why Ottawa Street Style exists.

Thank you.
