IAN is the new collection designed by Rozae Nichols. Launching in Spring 2010, the collection offers “essential wardrobe” pieces for a modern woman’s lifestyle. IAN developed through the collaboration of shared aesthetics between two long time friends: Rozae Nichols and Stella Ishii of The News. Their mutual design sensibility, desire for a renewed simplicity and commitment to quality has inspired the minimal, strong and elemental styles that reveal a sensitivity and respect to a woman’s individual style.
Deeply rooted in a timeless and simple philosophy, the collection brings a very cool yet elegant and understated sensibility to the contemporary customer. IAN does not target customers of a certain age; it is for confident women of all ages. The silhouettes are purposely spare, sensual and understated; entrusting the person who wears IAN to make it come alive in their own individual way. Ian is minimal though luxurious, and intelligently defined with a stylish and youthful sophistication.
*IAN is named after Rozae Nichol’s husband who has inspired her throughout their 24 years together.*

Fawn boutique has sweet fashions, sweet prices
Fawn works hard to live up to its name with attitude and wit
By Rita Zekas
Fawn boutique is in the former Chocolate Factory at 967 Queen St. W. near the Candy Factory Lofts but you won’t get sugar shock. The stock isn’t sickly sweet.
Fawn is not about the cute little cuddly Bambis the name suggests, though there are deer heads over the cash register. The name, owner Kasha Bilobram explains, actually represents “fashion, attitude, wit and nostalgia.”
You want everything Bilobram is wearing: strenuously studded booties from the Queen West shop Chasse Gardée (1084 Queen St. W.), a graphic tee from Mary Meyer worn as a dress and a vintage army shirt as a jacket.
Bilobram, a native “downtown Torontonian” who is half Polish and half Ukrainian, had a background in merchandising, display and styling before opening the shop 2-1/2 years ago.
She has been interested in fashion since she was a child.
“I got that from my mom. My mom never wore the same thing twice,” she says. “She wore a lot of vintage and couture and had tons of jewellery. I’d walk around in her shoes.”
The shop is deftly curated: the intersection of structure and comfort.
