Michelle Ross

New to Fawn is jewellery by homegrown talent, Michelle Ross.

Michelle has extensive training and experience in fashion. She studied textiles at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University and then moved to England to continue her studies at London College of Fashion. An internship at Erdem soon followed. It was in London that Michelle launched her own line, consisting of both jewellery and clothing. You can see her debut collection here. Michelle has since moved back to Toronto where she continues to grow the line and her fan base.

The jewellery is made from semi-precious stones and metals juxtaposed with glass, ceramics and vintage findings. The outcome is bold and distinct pieces that manage to easily integrate into any wardrobe. Drop by Fawn this weekend to have a look!

Won Hundred

We have got some great new pieces in from Won Hundred!

Copenhagen-based Won Hundred was created by Nikolaj Nielsen, who dropped out of school at age 16 to start a career in fashion. After gaining experience at Diesel and Miss Sixty, he decided to strike out on his own to start a line with a “less is more” approach. In its infancy, the line was strictly denim. Now it is a full collection after partnering with Pernille Schwartz, who previously worked at Cacharel.

All For The Mountain

If you are looking for pieces of jewellery that do not just fade into the background, then All For The Mountain is definitely for you.  The jewellery line was started in 2009 by Carly Margolis, an artist, musician and former wallpaper designer who is inspired by sacred objects of both the past and future. She carves each piece in wax and then casts them in silver, bronze, and other precious metals.

The Uniform Project

The Uniform Project is a bit old now – over 2 years old to exact. We are a bit slow on discovering this one but even if it is an oldie, it is still a goodie.

Sheena Matheiken decided back in 2009 that she wanted to challenge herself creatively by wearing the same little black dress every day for a year with the goal of making it look like a different outfit every day. She managed to do just that by accessorizing with vintage, handmade, and donated pieces. For a complete rundown of the 365 outfits created with just one dress, watch this video.

The year of inspiring outfits is not only a lesson in sustainability and creativity in a wardrobe, but also in philanthropy. Sheena used this project as a fundraiser for Akanksha Foundation – a non-profit organization providing education to underprivileged children in India. The Uniform Project made over $100,000 in its first year. Since the original LBD challenge, there have been many other dress projects around the world supporting various causes. They have all been documented on the Uniform Project’s website here.

Rodebjer A/W 11

We are excited to have Rodebjer pieces in for Fall!

Rodebjer is designed by Carin Rodebjer, who was born and raised in Sweden. She lived in a small farming community but was always interested in fashion and sewing. Carin ended up moving to NYC to study at F.I.T.

In 1999 Carin started selling her pieces to stores after being approached by buyers when she was wearing her own designs. The label was born shortly after in 2001 and success followed. It really is no wonder – Rodebjer is effortless elegance at its very best.
