This Week in Fashion: TFI New Labels semi-finalists announced, Nowhereland settles down, Powder Puff Party, extended Boxing Week sales


The semi-finalists of the Toronto Fashion Incubator's New Labels Competition have been announced - and it's littered with our very own local designers including Cara Cheung, Yvonne Lin, and Paria Shirvani. The competition aims to expose design talent across Canada, hosting a finalists' runway show on April 18th. The winner will walk away with $25,000, a feature in Flare Magazine, and the chance to design and sell a collection in collaboration with Target. Tickets to the finale show will be available soon.

Last week, Nowhereland gave up their days as an exclusively online shop "for the bad and beautiful," and nested themselves right inside Kensington's gem Pretty Freedom (167 Augusta Ave) - a shop inside a shop much like Fitzroy and BYOB. Now everyone has a chance to touch and feel Nowhereland's quirky and acid-trip-esque clothing before making a purchase!


Yesterday, Holt Renfrew and Emily Weiss of Into The Gloss launched their beauty collaboration on the Holts' website - a January skincare guide. But, the guide is only second to the beauty social extravaganza dubbed the Powder Puff Party, happening on January 22nd at the Bloor Street location. Guests will have a chance to meet Weiss, enjoy beauty makeovers, and preview the best Spring 2013 products. Tickets are $25 each, and are available through the website or in-store.


Nomad (819 Queen St W) is extending (and upgrading) their Boxing Day sale likely until all their fall/winter 2012 merchandise is out the door, because - let's face it - 2012 is so last year. Make a visit in-store or online to get 60% off the regular price.

Uncle Otis (26 Bellair St) is also upping their sale game, making additional markdowns in-store and online. Select merchandise is now up to 70% off - and apparently sizes are going fast, so take advantage of the serious savings right now.

Over The Rainbow (101 Yorkville Ave) is still having their 50% off sale on denim and select fashions. I know I'm eyeing their metallic J Brand skinnies ($147 marked down from $295!).
