Would you like to contribute to Canada’s top fashion magazine? Oh you do, really? Well it’s too late – SORRY!
Take a minute to bang your forehead against a wall nearest you, clear your head of any romantic notions of what could have been, and check out the top twenty short listed finalists of FASHION Magazine’s Reporter Search 2008.
Voting has already begun, and the final decision rests with YOU! That’s right, you have the power to help your favourite style savvy guy or gal land their dream job for an entire year!
All twenty contestants are crazy accomplished and hail from across the nation. Lana Belton and Meghan Tooley are a stylish blogging (http://www.tjejsajten.blogspot.com/) twosome from Winnipeg who look no further than their grandmas for inspiration.
If it’s local style mavens you’re after, check out Toronto’s own Josette Blackwood, who’s recently given up her car and discovered a whole new underground universe of commuter chic.
Alternately, you can vote for the single male finalist, Craig David Long from Vancouver, a self described ‘post-modern guy’ who’s prized possession includes a vintage pair of YSL shades from the 70’s, which he enjoys rocking out with a belted safari shirt as a way of paying homage to the late designer.
There are seventeen more fascinating contestants for you to meet, so head on over to www.fashionmagazine.com/reportersearch and VOTE VOTE VOTE!
