You may have already noticed, but we’ve moved our online digs to a much more modern and comfortable space. Over the past few months we checked out new CMS accommodations at WordPress.com and liked the place so much, we decided to build a whole new home for ourselves and the neighbourhood.
We’re still moving in… so please excuse any mess and anything that is broken—we just couldn’t wait to open the door. It will take us a bit more time to unpack and put everything in its place. After 5+ years in our old online home, we’ve accumulated some things that we want to bring with us, but some of it needs a facelift or time to unpack and put back together. Pretty soon the place will be “all that and a bag of chips”, and then we’ll celebrate!
If you like what you see and want to leave a comment or two, we’d really like that. If you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear those too.
For now come on in and take a look around. Feel free to jump on the bed and put your feet on the sofa. We did!

Edward Chapman WOMAN and cystic fibrosis unite
to continue the legacy of Eva Markvoort.
She was beautiful, brave, clever, loved life, fashion, her wide circle of friends and touched the lives of all she met. This remarkable young woman died last March just before her 26th birthday, after a lifelong struggle with cystic fibrosis.
Eva Markvoort has gone, but her indomitable spirit will live on through an imaginative endeavour – 65 Red Roses Passion for Fashion: A Beautiful Legacy. There could be no better testimonial to her precious life than this collaboration between Edward Chapman Woman/Circa Ici, the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and dozens of Canadian artists.
Last May, 65 of Canada’s leading artists – including Robert Bateman, Robert Genn and Angela Au Hemphill – each contributed an eight by 10-inch wooden tile with the artist’s interpretation of a single red rose as a tribute to Eva. The tiles were then assembled into a marvellous bouquet of delicate, elegant, whimsical and quirky roses. This one-of-a-kind art project called 65 Red Roses has been donated by the Federation of Canadian Artists to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to use as a fundraising tool to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis. The painting is on display in the window of Chapman’s flagship store, 2596 Granville Street, and is available in poster format. Read more…
Glancing back to a time inspired by elegance and grace… Plum, 2799 Granville Street, on South Granville introduces their Fall 2010 Collection. The new line has a more stylish, retro feel and is inspired by the 50′s and the 60′s lady-like glamour. Plum Designer Claudia Augusti believes that after a few seasons of women’s clothing being more relaxed and oversized, that women are looking forward to wearing things that are a little more fitted, that show off their shape a bit more, that are a bit more constructed.
For the photoshoot to launch the Fall 2010 Collection, Plum VP Ed des Roches wanted to tell a story along the lines of his favourite TV show, Mad Men. Stylist Tracey Pincott did a great job of helping to bring together the hip concept. Read more…
