In the past few years, there has been a growing trend for vintage clothing in the fashion world, and Toronto is definitely following that wave! With vintage stores such as Pretty Freedom, Courage my Love, Timeless Apparel, Black Market, 69 Vintage, The Public Butter, House of Vintage (and the list goes on) becoming hit shopping spots in town.
While giving a second chance to old clothes that have had their time is exciting and has a great charm on its own, I believe it also shows the incredible creativity people have in envisioning and creating their own style. It is often those people that I admire most and really capture my attention during my strolls in the streets of Toronto.
And these two students in fine arts are a great example, wearing exclusively vintage pieces, except for the Baggu bag ~ !

Stumbled upon the Tweed Ride while on my regular photoshoot strolls on Queen street~ For those of you who have no clue what this event is about (and I personally had never heard of it before either), it happens once a year in Toronto, where a group of people wearing tweed, and basically dressed up in the ~1930-50’s, bike around the city of Toronto. The route is revealed to the participants the day of, so it’s impossible for an outsider to know where their stop locations are.
