We love the opportunity to see former local Leith Clark now that she’s mostly abroad in the fashion centres of London, Paris and Italy. Its also fantastic to know that she still thinks of us as well. Here’s an excerpt from a recent interview with the international stylist in FASHION Magazine.

How do you beat the winter blues? “I don’t get them; I love snow. I live in England, so I miss Canadian winters a lot. I love the burrowing. Everyone needs to burrow with blankets, cashmere, tea and movies.”
Where do you go vintage shopping in Toronto? “My favourite store is Cabaret. I love the boy that works there—I love that he has special things that he always thinks you’ll like.”
Best city to shop in? “Paris.”
Where will we find you? “Bon Marché, Miu Miu, Chanel, Les Archives de la Presse, Serge Lutens, Isabel Marant, Ladurée, Sonia Rykiel and Colette. But I like the Japanese cakes at Toraya more than shopping itself.”
We were so pleased that actress Katie Boland who stars in the movie Daydream Nation decided to wear one of our Cabaret Collection pieces, The Bijou, to the movie’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) premiere. Katie is wearing the Bijou in violet, the classic lines emphasize her Old Hollywood appeal. Check out her post at Blogto.com, her feature article at TheStar.com and interview with Elle Canada.
‘The purple dress was perfect for my premiere - Thank you so so much.
“I have a brand new floral 1950′s dress to add to my Cabaret collection. It was the perfect, summery choice for my Lilith shows across North America. For every comment I got on my lovely dress (& I got many!) I was sure to sing the praises of my favorite Toronto vintage shop – Cabaret Vintage in Toronto. The folks at Cabaret dressed me for my wedding & they have dressed me for the stage & now my closet is oh so pretty.”
